In case you couldn’t tell by the names, these two mini-laptops are very, very similar. They have the same case design, the same keyboard and 10 inch screen. But there are a few subtle differences which suggest that the Eee PC 1025CE will be the more expensive model.
First, the Eee PC 1025CE has 2 USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port, while the cheaper model just has 3 USB 2.0 ports. The Eee PC 1025CE also has Bluetooth and a few photo suggest there may be a 4G WiMAX option, while the Eee PC 1025C is WiFi-only. The Eee PC 1025CE also has a matte screen while its sibling appears to have a glossy display.
I haven’t seen any processor details, but both netbooks are expected to ship with Intel Atom Cedar Trail processors. I wouldn’t be surprised if one uses the new Intel Atom N2600 chip while the other users the higher end N2800 processor.
Asus hasn’t released US pricing or release date details yet.
