Asus has outed its first netbook based on the just-announced dual-core Atom N550 processor.

Step forward, the Eee PC 1015PEM, which combines Asus' curvy seashell design with said 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB of DDR 3, 160-320GB of hard drive storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi and all the usual netbook portage.

The whole lot sits behind a 48, 56 or 63Wh battery - depending on SKU and where in the world you buy one - for up to 13 hours' untethered runtime, though that's with Asus' underclocking Super Hybrid Engine operating.
