ASUS' Eee PC line is about to get three new models. According to leaked details from blogeee, the three new models–the Eee PC 1018P, the Eee PC 1016P, and the Eee PC 1015P–all have 10-inch displays and likely run on Intel’s latest Pine Trail Atom processors.


Although we aren't likely to see official details from ASUS until CeBIT 2010, a few more leaked details are currently available. For starters, the ASUS Eee PC 1015P is apparently a refresh of the current Eee PC 1005P. The most noticeable upgrade with this newer model is a larger touchpad. The Eee PC 1015P features an aluminum body and touts a battery life rated for up to 14hrs.


The ASUS Eee PC 1016P reportedly targets business users with its square design, chiclet keys, aluminum chassis, and a 14 hour runtime. Last but not least, the ASUS Eee PC 1018P is the company's thinnest netbook to date, measuring just 18mm thick. It will offer 10 hours of battery life, an integrated fingerprint scanner, and USB 3.0.

Seems Asus is keeping there monopoly of this market clear to me. These systems also seem decent compared as well to previous, and even some current models. I just am wondering where this market is going to go when the tablets start hitting it hard.

Not sure either, I feel as though once the computer gets to a certain size it becomes unproductive.  I wouldn't be able to use a netbook because those keys drive me mad (too small).  I figure touchscreens/tablets will take the place of the netbook, but the notebook/laptop will remain.

I always figured one would be too small for me to deal with as well. I was pleasantly surprised when I had the opportunity to use a MSI Wind for a week, last week. I found it to be capable and easy to use. So, I may bite and get one for when I go on road trips.

The newer ASUS Eee PC 1008KR has Express Gate Instant-On OS, which is what we expected Google's OS to be. You can simply turn on the netbook/laptop and be surfing, checking e-mails, etc within a few seconds.

I found out the same thing realneil. I have big hands and fingers so I assumed they would be no use to me. However; I have on several occasions over the last year repaired a friend of the wifes 10 year old boy's netbook. It is an HP mini as well as of the smallest type I have seen. Why it is not as easy to use as a full sized unit, I can use it fine which was a surprise. I figure I could use one of the 10 inch ones totally with ease. Right now though I really do not know if I am going to get one. I am going to watch the tablet's to, and see where they all go. Then I will make my decision, I think for this use pattern a tablet would be better, but the unit functionality of it would have to be good as well as the capabilities of the hardware inside.
