ASUS Eee PC 1000HE new colors revealed

The ASUS Eee PC 1000HE has shown up in a variety of new colors, including the rather fetching brushed-aluminum finish you see here.  In fact the 10.2-inch netbook will apparently be offered in six different colors: black, white, brushed-silver, blue, pink and onyx.Full color range gallery after the cut

The Eee PC 1000HE began shipping a week ago, priced at $374.  That gets you Intel's Atom N280 1.66Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB 5,400rpm hard-drive and GMA950 graphics.  There's also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and "chiclet" keyboard.  ASUS are particularly proud of the 1000HE's runtime, which is up to a claimed 9.5hrs from the 6-cell 8700mAh battery.

SlashGear have got an ASUS Eee PC 1000HE in for review right now – sadly in dull old black – and we're currently putting it through its paces.  You can see the unboxing video and hands-on first impressions here.
