ASUS Eee PC 1015PN officially confirmed, priced

After showing up on Amazon for pre-order earlier this month, the Eee PC 1015PN from ASUS has now been made official. The 10.1-inch, 1024x600 display is offset by NVIDIA's new 512MB Ion graphics processor along with Optimus technology that will switch between energy-saving onboard graphics and the Ion's 1080p-capable video. The Ion is matched with a dual-core, 1.5GHz Atom N550, 1GB of DDR3 RAM and an HDMI output.

The 250GB hard drive is preloaded with Windows 7 Starter, and ASUS also provides 500GB of cloud storage with the PC. The 2.8lb netbook is 1.4 inches thick, and ASUS said the battery is good for 9.5 hours on a charge.

ASUS confirmed the Eee PC 1015PN costs $430 and will be available in red, white, black and blue. Amazon has not yet updated its listing to reflect the official introduction, and ASUS itself is keeping mum about the release timeframe. [via NotebookReview]
