This is a lot more pixels than the 1024×600 pixels we’re used to seeing, while Broadcom’s Crystal HD media processor enables playback of 720p video material.
ASUS Eee PC 1005PR ships with 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Bluetooth, WiFi, 0.3 Megapixel web camera and Intel’s integrated GMA 3150 GPU. The 6-cell battery will result in up to 9-11 hours with Windows 7 Starter Edition.
The resolution has been one of the greatest Achilles heals of 10.1″ netbooks and if more companies can create a trend of High Definition panels maybe we can see an increase in demand for these small and convenient travel pals. Not just for video but also as a tool. Unfortunately it looks like ASUS Eee PC 1005PR will only be available in selected regions, for example not around these parts, but hopefully there will be similar models.
