French retailer fnac has posted a product page for a new Asus netbook model called the Eee PC 1005PE-H. Basically, the laptop is identical to the Asus Eee PC 1005PE in most respects. It has the same design, keyboard, and processor. But the Eee PC 1005PE-H comes with more RAM and storage space than its cheaper sibling, and ships with Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows 7 Starter Edition.
There’s no word on whether this model will be available in the US anytime soon. But I’d be surprised if it’s only available in France. Typically netbooks that pop up in that country are made available throughout much of Europe.
Here’s a rundown of the specs:
- CPU: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450
- Display: 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
- RAM: 2GB
- Storage: 320GB hard drive
- OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
- Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet
- I/O: 3x USB, SD card reader, mic, headphone
- Battery: 6 cell, 4400mAh
- Dimensions: 10.3″ x 7″ x 1.4″
Fnac is charging 349 Euros for the Eee PC 1005PE-H, whichi s the equivalent of $476 US, although European prices tend to be higher than prices in the US.
