ASUS Eee PC 1018P with USB 3.0 Measures 18mm thick

The ASUS Eee PC 1018P was first reported back towards the end of February along with two other models, the 1015p and 1016p. Since then we haven’t heard much until now where some, what are believed to be exclusive, pictures have been captured.

The pictures show off the ASUS 1018p model. This particular model will run either Intel N455 or N475 processors, have Bluetooth connectivity and USB 3.0 connectivity too along with 10 hours of battery life. Recently, ASUS made the decision to embrace the USB 3.0 standard by including the port on all products. The 1018p is amongst the first to receive the USB 3.0 port as standard. The USB 3.0 ports can be seen on the right side of the netbook (pictured below) and are in the usual bright blue colour that indicates the USB 3.0 connectivity.

Overall the ASUS 1018p looks impressive. When compared to older ASUS Eee netbooks you can tell that ASUS have trimmed down the thickness of the netbook and made it a lot slimmer by cutting some bulk of the rear of the device.

Specs that we know of right now include 1 – 2 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 2.1 (with 3.0 being optional), a 10.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Connectivity is through optional integrated 3G (perhaps as standard or not at all… will be confirmed when officially announced) as well as WiFi 802.11b/g/n. For storage it will use a hard drive with capacities of 250GB and 500GB.

We’ll hopefully get pricing and release dates soon.

    Right now, i have that model It ships with a 32 bit operating system, but it is 64 bit. If you see a netbook with n450 or n445, NOT n270, it is 64 bit. Windows 7 starter only is 32 bit, so they cant put 64 bit on it, but i installed a 64 bit operating system on it… It runs SWEET!!! 53 bit operating system, it ships with an overclick utility up to 2.1 ghz, and 2 gb ram, and boot booster partition boots 10 seconds faster, by caching files on a partition of 50 megbyts. best thing i ever bought. Bots to windws 7 ultimate 64 desktop in 10 seconds, super fast, and snappy very sleek, and super fast for a netbook… as with all netbooks, you shoud put a 2 gb ram mdule in it, it speeds EVERYTHING up…
