ASUS Sirocco netbook is Eee PC 1015PW?

ASUS’ upcoming “Sirocco” Eee PC may well be the the Eee PC 1005PW 1015PW, according to the latest tips, with the dune-textured netbooks getting an unofficial pre-unveil preview. According to imidoresc, the ASUS Eee PC 1015PW Sirocco will be a 10.1-inch WSVGA netbook with Intel’s Atom N550 processor and up to 10hrs battery life.

There’s also a choice of 250GB or 320GB hard-drives, Bluetooth 3.0 and a -.3-megapixel webcam. We’re guessing on WiFi b/g/n and the usual trio of USB 2.0 ports, single ethernet, audio in/out and a memory card reader as well. It’s expected to weigh around 1.25kg.

Pricing and availability haven’t been revealed, but this is looking pretty mainstream for a current netbook, and not the hurricane ultraportable the “Sirocco” name led us to hope for. We’ll find out all the details on Wednesday when the netbook is announced officially.
