ASUS Eee PC 1005PR with HD screen now at Amazon
ASUS has brought out another variation of its Eee PC netbook, with the 1005PR, which is now available for pre-order from Amazon. The device has a 10.1-inch glossy screen, though its resolution is comes in at a higher 1366x768 (720p) versus the standard netbook's 1024x600. To take advantage of this, a Broadcom Crystal HD chipset is integrated and accelerates video, including in-browser with Flash 10.1.
The netbook otherwise gets a 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Wi-Fi and a 0.3-megapixel webcam. It has Windows 7 Starter preloaded, and its six-cell battery is rated at 11 hours of life.
The latest Eee PC is priced at $400. [via Netbooked]
