ASUS Eee 1005PR Intel Atom N450 Netbook

ASUS are continuing to expand their Eee range of netbooks by launching the ASUS Eee 1005PR netbook. The 1005PR is based around the ASUS 1005PE and has a 10.1 inch LED backlit screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The netbook has a Broadcom BCM 70015 HD decoder built in allowing to to recreate HD content in 720p.

The 1005PR netbook is powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor. The netbook has 1GB of DDR2 memory built in that can be upgraded to 2GB if required. For storage it has a 250GB hard drive along with 500GB of ASUS online storage that can be utilised.

For connectivity it has 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. In the bezel of the screen is a 0.3 megapixel camera.

Like other netbooks in the ASUS 1005 range, the 1005PR also has a decent battery life quoted by ASUS as being 11 hours. Although it might be hard to achieve that amount of usage with wireless switched on, at least you’ll still get a decent amount of usage on a single charge.

Ports on the sides of the device include three USB 2.0 ports, a VGA connector, LAN port as well as a mucrophone/headphone port and finally a memory card reader can be found.

When launched in the next month or so it will be on sale for around $400. Full specifications can be found at ASUS.
