On paper the Asus Eee PC 1015PE doesn’t look all that different from other recent netbooks from Asus. It has the same 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 250GB hard drive, 802.1b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth. It runs Windows 7 Starter and has a 4400mAh battery.
But the Eee CP 1015PE features a new design with a matte display and a larger touchpad than other models like the Eee PC 1005PE. It also comes with different color options, including a red model.
Riccardo at Eee PC.it managed to snag one of the new netbooks in Italy, and he’s posted an unboxing video and some first impressions. You can check out the video after the break. It’ll probably make more sense if you speak Italian, but for the most parts I’ve found taking-things-out-of-boxes has a universal language all its own.
