ASUS Eee PC 1000HE

ASUS on Monday hoped to claim supremacy in netbooks with the Eee PC 1000HE. The variant of ASUS' familiar 10-inch netbook is the company's first to use the new 1.66GHz Atom processor that gets both a faster 667MHz system bus and faster integrated graphics that ASUS claims is HD-capable. The new chip combined with an equally new high-density battery gives the system as much as 9.5 hours of runtime without using a bulky add-on.

The external design itself is new and centers on a revamped keyboard that uses the same Chiclet-style keyboard as MacBooks and several Sony VAIOs to reach 92 percent key size and thus feel much more comfortable than the typical netbook.

ASUS doesn't say when the netbook ships but is taking pre-orders today for the $399 system, which will come in black and blue colors with a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a built-in webcam. Early orders also get a $25 discount. [via SlashGear]
