ASUS Eee PC 1215P with Ubuntu Linux for pre-order

ASUS will soon release a 12-inch Eee PC netbook that uses Ubuntu Linux, as revealed by a Monclick web store listing. The Eee PC 1215P will be the largest from the company with Linux preloaded. Other specs include a dual-core 1.5GHz Intel Atom N570 CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.

There is a webcam in the frame and a six-cell battery rated at up to eight hours of life, at least in the Windows 7-powered version.

It will become available within the next couple of days in either black or red and cost 279 euros (about $395). No word regarding when or if the computer will come to North America. [via NotebookItalia]
