This week Intel announced that its 1.5GHz dual core Atom N550 processor was now available, and ever since we’ve seen netbooks sporting the new chipset coming out of the woodwork. Today’s model is a 10 inch netbook from Asus called the Eee PC 1015PEM.

Tech In Style reports that the Eee PC 1015PEM will support up to 2GB of DDR3 memory and be able to handle 720p HD video playback. The netbook will be available in red, black, white, and pink colors and should ship for about 349 Euros in Europe. That’s just over $440 US, but PC prices have a way of falling a bit once they hit US shores.

The US Energy Star Web site also has a listing for a new Asus netbook called the 1015PDG with a dual core chip. But this model has a 1.66GHz processor, which makes me think that either this machine uses a different chip or that the specs are wrong.

  1. Brad, when are you going to get your hands on the 1015PE for review? I’ve read Engadget’s review, but look forward to your take on it. I can’t decide between the 1005PE and the 1015.

  2. Your posting title lists a different model number than those in the post

    1. Thanks, my fingers have gotten used to writing 1005 over the past half
      year. I’ve updated the post with the correct model number.

  3. $440 is not a bad price for dual core. I think it would be nicer if the price was below $400; IMO.

    I think 10″ is the perfect size for a netbook. Anything smaller would not be very useful unless one has smaller hands.
