Asus' 1004DN: the first Eee with a built-in optical drive

The 1004DN is fitted with a multi-format DVD writer. Alongside it is an Intel 1.66GHz Atom N280 processor and GN40 chipset, a set-up that’s been paired with 1GB of DDR 2 memory. The machine will have a 120GB 1.8in, 4200rpm hard drive inside.

Sporting the same 10in, 1024 x 600 resolution display as many existing Eee PCs, such as the 1002H and 1000HE - reviewed here. The 1004DN’s screen also sports a 1.3Mp webcam.

Three USB ports and Bluetooth will be included, while web access will be possible using the machine’s 802.11n Wi-Fi connection or Ethernet port.

A biometric reader should help keep your data safe, unless you owe money to any mafia dons.

It weighs in at 1450g and will come with a six-cell battery that, according to Asus, should hold out for almost six hours.

Asus hasn’t said when it’ll start shipping the Eee 1004DN, or how much it wants for the machine. ®
