The Asus Eee PC 1008P is basically an updated version of the Asus Eee PC 1008HA with an Atom N450 processor replacing the older Atom N280 CPU. Cosmetically the only real difference is that the new model has a chiclet style keyboard with space between the keys. But there’s also a limited edition version of the Eee PC 1008P that features a distinctive cover design.

The folks at NetbookLive got their hands on the Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection Edition. While the specs are pretty much identical to any other version of this netbook, the laptop comes with a leather case with a magnetic lock. And it features a distinctive pattern that covers the lid and base of the laptop. The Karim Rashid edition netbook is available in black, white, pink, and brown.

You can check out more pictures of the brown version at Netbook Live.

edit: astute readers might remember that Lee mentioned this one back in December

  1. For most people in the World, who is Karim Rashid? Never heard of him or her before.

    If ever a designer name is needed, why can’t it be a famous name like Versace or Salvatore Ferragamo?

  2. guys, it actually looks even better live than it does on the pics. I couldn’t get them done in the studio this time and had pretty poor light conditions 🙁 Still, i’m looking forward to see the Black version…

  3. that’s… not hideous. this puts designer netbooks at one for eight or so.
