ASUS Eee PC 1015P Seashell and 1016P Diary detailed: 14hrs battery life apiece

Remember the three leaked ASUS Eee PC models from last week, the 1015P, 1016P and 1018P?  ASUS have delivered on all three, and while we've already seen live shots of the super-slim Eee PC 1018P Prime, we thought you might like more details on the other two machines.  The ASUS Eee PC 1015P has the same white plastic styling as previous "Seashell" netbooks from the company, but throws in a 14hr 6-cell 63Wh battery and Intel's latest Atom N450, N455, N470 and N475 processors.

ASUS have quietly added a third model to their O!Play mediaplayer range, the ASUS O!Play HD2.  With no information beyond a name in the CeBIT 2010 press release they've sent us, however, and nothing on the company site, we're left guessing to its complete specifications, though the single photo does reveal USB, eSATA and various forms of memory card reader.

NVIDIA Ion 2 officially announced: 10x graphics grunt & 10hr battery life

NVIDIA have officially launched their next-generation Ion GPU, intended to give netbooks and nettops a graphics boost.  It comes as little surprise, given we saw Acer's Aspire One 532G netbook using the new GPU a few weeks back at MWC 2010, but the company have also announced that ASUS' 12-inch Eee PC 1201P will use the chipset, as well as more than 30 products from other companies including AOpen, AsRock, Asus, Foxconn, J&W, Pegatron, POV, Shuttle and Zotac.

Intel Atom N455 and N475 quietly debut

Intel may have officially announced the Atom N470 processor today - well, actually they pulled the trigger early on Saturday - but that isn't the only new CPU at CeBIT 2010 this week.  As we've seen on netbooks like the ASUS Eee PC 1018P Prime, Intel have also launched the Atom N455 and Atom N475.  The two variant chips are obviously based on the 1.66GHz N450 and 1.83GHz N470 processors, but apparently add in support for DDR3 memory.

Archos 9 PC Tablet getting 1.2GHz CPU update; capacitive screen & 3G in the works?
