The Eee PC 1005PR is the first 10 inch netbook from Asus with a high resolution 1366 x 768 pixel display. It was first spotted at CeBIT in Germany last week, but now Asus has posted an official product page for the mini-laptop.
Here’s a rundown of the specs:
- Display: 10.1″ 1366 x 768 pixels
- Graphics: GMA 3150 + Broadcom BCM 70015 HD video accelerator
- CPU: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450
- OS: Windows 7 Starter Edition
- Memory: 1GB (Max: 2GB)
- Storage: 250GB HDD (plus 500GB Asus WebStorage)
- Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, Ethernet
- I/O: VGA, mic, headphone, SDHC card slot, 3 USB ports
- Battery:Two options: 6 cell, 63Whr or 6 cell, 48Whr
- Dimensions: 10.3″ x 7″ x 1.4″
- Weight: 2.8
No word on pricing yet, but the Eee PC 1005PR should be available in April. And by all appearances, the netbook is virtually identical to the Eee PC 1005PE in most respects. The two key differences are the high resolution display at the Broadcom Crystal HD video accelerator, both of which are likely to drive up the price. My guess is that we’ll see this model selling for about $50 more than a standard Asus Eee PC 1005PE.

There’s quite a lot on the web about this, just recycling what’s on the Asus site. But this posting is the only one I’ve seen that mentions April availability. Is this reliable information?
Too bad all new net tops come with a crippled os. I am glad I bought mine while xp was still available. Who wants windows starter, a ploy by MS to get more money out of you. These of running netbooks are capable of running the windows 7 home premium. I spent $349. for a Dell ino HD with home premium. If no one buys the windows starter edition, they will be forced to put home premium edition on
them. I would guess there would be no difference in battery life between the two.
