Asus is preparing to dump yet another netbook on the market, assuming a fresh listing on the company's site is indicative of a pending product launch. The new model, 1005PX, is based on Intel's Pine Trail platform and carries a 10.1-inch 1024x600 LED-backlit matte display.

It sports an Intel Atom N450 processor, up to 2GB of system memory, 160GB, 250GB or 320GB of storage, a 0.3-megapixel webcam, Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a MMC/SD card reader, a VGA connector, and audio jacks.


The system runs either Windows 7 Starter or XP Home and gets up to 8.5 hours of life on a six-cell battery, which puts the total weight around 1.27kg or 2.79lbs. It comes in five solid colors black, white, blue, pink and red so you don't have to worry about it clashing with your shoes.

We haven't seen any official pricing or release information, but TechConnect reports that a model with 1GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD is already in Thai stores for about $455.
