Asus has launched its first 10 inch netbook with an Intel Atom N570 dual core 1.66 GHz processor. It’s called the Eee PC 1015PX, and it looks pretty much just like every other recent 10 inch mini-laptop from Asus. It’s just has a processor that’s a tiny bit faster.
The Eee PC 1015PX most closely resembles the Eee PC1015PEM which has a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom N550 chip. But since Asus doesn’t have the infrastructure available to let customers pick and choose hard drive, CPU, memory, or other options when placing an order the way Dell or HP do, Asus tends to add a new model number every time there’s a modest spec bump.
The netbook has the usual 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and 1GB of memory and ships with Windows 7 Starter Edition, a 0.3MP camera, 80211b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.0.
The Asus Eee PC 1015PX-PU17 packs a 56Whr battery. You can pick up that model from Buy.com for $346. If you can live with slightly less battery life, the Eee PC 1015PX-MU17 has a 48Whr battery and runs $320 at Amazon.
