ASUS Eee PC 1008P with Pine Trail spotted
The first ASUS Eee PC to get Intel's Pine Trail platform is this special edition Eee PC Seashell 1008P-KR, with the suffix standing for designer Karim Rashid. Apart from the platform, which allows for the new Pine Trail-based 1.8GHz Atom N450 processor, the netbook also features a removable battery that simply slides out of the side of the 10.1-inch netbook. Otherwise, specs are nearly identical to the Eee PC 1008HA, including its 1024x600 resolution, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.
There is also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth support, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. The preloaded operating system is Windows 7 Starter. While prices are unknown, the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1008P-KR should be shipping in February, available in the pictured Hot Pink and Gold Brown colors. [via Netbooked]
