Unboxed: Eee PC 1005PE
Brad over at liliputing really has a job to envy. He just got one of the new Pine Trail Asus Eee PCs and he’s made a video with it to gloat in front of us (just kidding). He unboxed the factory-fresh review unit in all its glory and tells us a couple of thoughts on the new netbook.
The 1005PE is similar to the other Seashell Eee PC models and came with all the basics – power brick, recovery DVD, docs, etc. This doesn’t carry the Eee logo on its lid, just the Asus one. The unit is fairly glossy and I imagine not so fingerprint-resistant.
The battery looks to be a 6-cell one which is supposed to last you 10 hours. The bottom panel is now smaller which gives access to RAM replacement. I liked the bigger panel of the previous models which let you replace the RAM, hard drive and miniPCie WiFi card. The chiclet-style keyboard should be an improvement for typists.
Just wait for it this January if you want one of your own. You can watch the full unboxing here.
