Asus has now begun shipping the 10.1-inch Asus Eee PC 1015PX netbook to the United States. Built around the 1.6GHz dual-core Atom N570 processor that Intel launched a couple of months back, the dual-booting 1015PX is available in two variants and four colors.
Apart from the dual-core Atom N570, the 1015PX features a 10.1-inch LED display (1024x600), a 250GB/320GB/500GB hard drive, and up to 2GB of RAM. Windows 7 Starter and Express Gate instant-on OS are the two operating systems that come preinstalled on it.
The two variants of this new Asus netbook, 1015PX-PU17 and 1015PX-MU17, are identical save for their different batteries. The 1015PX-PU17( $340 ) comes with a 56W/h battery capable of lasting 11 hours on a single charge. On the other hand, the 1015PX-MU17 ( $320 ) packs a 48W/h battery that lasts an hour less on a single charge.
