Asus 'Atom 2' netbooks appear

Pine Trail product prepared

Business security measures using SSL

We've seen details of Acer's upcoming netbooks based on the next-gen Atom platform, 'Pine Trail', slip out, and now it's Asus' turn.

Italian-language site EeePC.it has posted basic information about a pair of Pine Trail Eee PCs: the 1005P and the 1005PE, both available in a choice of black or white cases.

The difference between the model numbers? The P has a 160GB hard drive, while the PE has 250GB of magnetic storage.

All versions come with a 10in display, a 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor, 1GB of DDR 2 and a three-cell battery. They all run Windows 7 - Starter Edition, presumably.

The site expects them to be priced pretty much where top-end Eee PCs are currently set at, and we would agree.

Intel is expected to formally launch Pine Trail at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Las Vegas early next year. ®
