Asus Eee PC 1018P in aluminum finish




There’s not much you can do with the current line of netbooks nowadays. Most of the time, it’s just some sort of re-design  and that’s what they did with the Asus Eee PC 1018P.

At first sight, the netbook seems like just any other unit it the Eee PC Seashell line with a little touch of a texture on the lid cover. It looks thinner though compared to the previous Seashell series.

The specs of the netbook takes the usual line-up with a few improvements here and there, including Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 ports.

Asus Eee PC 1018P specs:
10.1-inch display @ 1024×600 pixels
Intel Atom N455 @ 1.66 GHz, with HyperThreading
Intel GMA 3150 graphics
1GB DDR3 RAM (2GB max)
250GB HDD
WiFi 802.11n
Bluetooth 3.0
3 x USB 2.0
0.3MP webcam
Gigabit LAN
5,800mAh battery
3-in-1 card reader
Windows 7 Starter

The general look of the 1018P is much better, especially with that aluminum finish around the keyboard area. The chiclet-type keys are becoming a standard as well and this white model is looks really good.

Asus reps tell me they have no release date for this unit yet so we don’t have any final figure of retail price. I reckon it would land in the same price range as the regular units (~Php21k – Php23k).

    Nice unit, good specs. I just hope with the new line of USB 3.0 compatible laptops there are actual USB 3.0 devices to use it for.

    Wow, this is a looker and I hope you’re right with the price Abe.

    Processor-wise, how does this compare with the current crop of Atoms?
