Asus Eee PC 1015PN netbook with NVIDIA ION 2 up for pre-order
The Asus Eee PC 1015PN is a 10 inch netbook with a dual core Intel Atom N550 processor and second generation NVIDIA ION graphics. A few weeks ago Asus told me it would go on sale in October, and right on cue, the folks at ExcaliberPC have put up product pages for the laptop. You can pre-order the Eee PC 1015PN for $429 in black, white, blue, or red colors.
