Last week I noticed drivers for a new netbook show up on the Asus support site. After doing a little digging, I realized the Eee PC MK90H is just another name for the Disney Netpal branded netbook from Asus.
The fact that drivers are available is a pretty good sign that this 8.9 inch nebtook should begin shipping soon. And Netbooked uncovered another bit of evidence: Toys R Us, which has been taking pre-orders for this laptop for the past month or so, is now showing an estimated ship date of 8/14.
The Netpal features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, Windows XP, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and a 5 hour battery. It also weighs about 2.2 pounds and features a suite of Disney software.
The netbook is also available for pre-order from Amazon for $349.99 in “Magic Blue” and “Princess Pink.”
My order with Toys R Us just got pushed to September.
Oh joy! another netbook that wants a slice of the big cake.
