Asus is now shipping the 10.1 inch Eee PC 1015PX netbook in the US. This netbook is built around the Atom N570 dual core processor that was launched by Intel few months back. This is also the first Asus mini laptop to come with both Windows 7 Starter and Express Gate (an instant on OS). There are going to be two variants of the netbook – 1015px-pu17 and 1015px-mu17.
The only difference between the aforementioned models is the size of batteries being used. PU17 one comes with 56Wh battery while the MU17 comes with a smaller 48Wh battery. PU17 model which retails at 340 dollars will last you 11 hours on a single charge while the MU17 model will give you 10 hours of continuous runtime. This is still more than the Asus 1201K that sports 1.5 hours of battery life.
Common specs include 10.1 inch display, 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 250GB / 320GB / 500GB hard disk drive, 2GB RAM, Windows 7 Starter and Express Gate operating system. You can read its review here.
