The Asus Eee PC 1001P has been available for a few months. Now Notebook Italia has spotted a slightly different version called the Eee PC 1001PX which should begin shipping in Italy soon.
The Eee PC 1001PX appears to be pretty similar to the 1001P. The primary difference is that it will be available with a choice of Windows XP or Windows 7 Starter Edition. The US version of this netbook is only available with Windows 7 Starter.
The Windows XP model will have a 160GB hard drive and 3 cell battery, while the Windows 7 version will have a 6 cell battery and 250GB hard drive. Both models will have a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor, GMA 3150 graphics, and 1GB of RAM.
The cheaper Windows XP model will sell for about 241 Euros, while the Windows 7 version will run about 300 Euros. That’s the equivalent of about $325 and $405 respectively, although it’s worth pointing out that you can pick up an Eee PC 1001P in the US for as little as $288.
