Asus tackles summer sun with no-gloss netbook screen

Eee lass will love the update

The essential guide to IT transformation

Asus has officially taken the lid off its latest Eee PC netbook, the 1005PX.

So say our chums over at German website Eee PC News, no doubt after a night sobbing into their Holstens.

Bad luck in the match, guys, but you can take heart in the knowledge that your psychic octopus has been vindicated.

Here's a picture of the new machine:

Well, it's hard to get overly excited by the new Eee PC, which takes the existing 1.66GHz Atom N450-based 1005PE - reviewed here - and swaps out the old model's glossy screen for a "non-glare" panel.

And - apart from some new casing colours - that's about it.

So, since this story needs livening up a tad, here's an old friend:

Asus Eee PC S101

Anyone on a sunny beach will surely appreciate the non-glare screen. ®
