ASUS Eee PC 1005PR with Broadcom Crystal now out
The Eee PC 1005PR netbook that was offered for pre-order late in April has now gone on sale at Amazon. The 10.1-inch LED backlit netbook has a relatively high 1366x768 screen resolution and can play back HD video locally and in-browser thanks to its Broadcom Crystal HD chipset and Flash 10.1 support. The netbook has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as standard fare as well.
Otherwise, its six-cell battery's life is rated at up to 11 hours, and Windows 7 Starter is preloaded onto the 250GB hard drive. A 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU powers it, and there is 1GB of RAM. A built-in 0.3-megapixel camera rounds out the features. The netbook costs $400.
