Today in Tales from ASUS we bring you the story of the 10.1-inch Eee PC 1005PR. While we didn't catch this one hiding out in the overflowing CeBIT booth
, it appears big A has gone and swapped out the screen on the 1005PE
for one with a 1366 x 768-resolution and tucked a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator
inside, which means the little lappie should be able to handle some YouTube HD (at least after you download 10.1 Beta 3
). Nothing special apart from that, as it's standard netbook down the line: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450, 1GB of RAM, and 320GB hard drive. No word on pricing or availability, but we're guessing it'll probably come in at under $400, like the Dell Mini 10
and HP Mini 210
. It may not be a bad deal in the end, but we're still holding out for the Ion 2-equipped 1201PN
and for ASUS to someday slow down the frenetic pace of Eee PC iteration.
