ASUS 1005P netbook has Pine Trail, 12h battery

A second set of Pine Trail Atom-based ASUS Eee PC netbooks has been spotted and promises a significant update to one of the company's cornerstone netbooks. Store listings and images of the 1005P and slightly upgraded 1005PE show a system with the familiar thick "seashell" shape but with improved chiclet-style keys and a textured lid. A larger upgrade should come inside with a 1.66GHz Atom N450 that will both speed up the design and extend the battery life to a very long 12 hours.

Both the 1005P and 1005PE will share a 10-inch display, 1GB of RAM, GMA 3150 integrated graphics and Windows 7 Starter, but both hard drive and wireless options will separate the two. The P should cling to the familiar 160GB hard drive, but the PE will upgrade to a larger 250GB disk and supplement the existing Wi-Fi with Bluetooth.

The new Eee PCs are due to ship in black- and white-colored models and, at one UK retailer, are priced at 211 ($343) and 235 ($381) in their respective models. It's believed that both will make their debut January 11th, just after CES. [via Netbook Choice and Netbook News]
