Looks like ASUS’s flagship netbook, the Eee PC 1015PN will get an upgrade to a dual core Atom N570 processor at some point as JKK spots in his hands on video with it at CeBIT 2011.
Other than that there’s really not much else they can upgrade as the netbook is pretty much maxed out – well, apart from getting a HD screen in there. You’d barely notice any performance gain out of a N570 (1.66GHz) over an N550 (1.5GHz) but you’ll certainly notice less money in your pocket.
It’s still sporting the same 10.1″ 1024 x 600 matte display, 8-core ION 2 chip, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 250GB HDD, 6-cell battery (are they shipping 56Wh batteries yet?) and Windows 7 Home Premium. Great to this see netbook drop in price from $430 to $360.
