ASUS Eee PC 1015PN shows on Amazon site
The ASUS Eee PC 1015PN netbook introduced at Computex back in June is now listed on Amazon's website, revealing its pricing, but no ship date as of yet. It lists for $430, and sports the 1.5GHz dual-core Atom N550 chip that's tied to the second-generation NVIDIA Ion GPU that have been shown in preliminary tests to outperform some of Intel's CULV chips.
The 10.1-inch, 1024x600 netbook otherwise gets 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive along with 500GB of free cloud storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. There is an HDMI and VGA output thanks to the NVIDIA chipset, a 0.3-megapixel webcam and three USB 2.0 ports. Windows 7 Starter is preloaded and the netbook is said to get 9.5 hours of battery life.
