ASUS Eee PC 1005P/PE PineTrail Netbooks EeePC 1005P & 1005PE Netbooks to Feature Atom N450 CPUs & 12.5hr Battery

A lot of netbooks are coming out this holiday season, making for one of
the most sought-after gadgets this year. However, if you're in the
market for one these days
(maybe as a Christmas gift), there is a high chance to end up kicking
yourself, maybe a month later. Why? Well, in January a whole range of
new netbooks based on Intel's new Atom PineTrail platform will be coming
out, bringing more performance at a lesser price.
Among those to bring the new systems to the market, ASUS is set to
release new PineTrail models in their EeePC range of netbooks. We're
talking about the new ASUS EeePC 1005P and the EeePC 1005PE. Both units
will be powered by an Intel Atom N450 1.66 GHz processor, have 1GB of
DDR2-RAM and will come preloaded with Windows 7 Started Edition.
They also pack and Intel GMA 3150 GPU, which is a slightly improved
version of Intel's G31-based GMA 3100. The 1005P will be the lower end
model with a 160 GB hard drive while the 1005PE model will have a 250GB
hard disk along with a 6-cell battery which is supposedly capable of
providing up to 12.5 hours of runtime.
The Asus Eee PC 1005P was listed early on a UK webstore for pound
sterling242.95 (some $395 at today's rate) while the 1005PE was listed
at pound sterling270.94 (~ $440). More details about the availability as
well as confirmed pricing should be announced at CES 2010.
