The Asus Eee PC 1001PQ netbook has just been announced over at CeBIT. Asus are aiming the 1001PQ at kids, but I suspect it’s older kids / early teenagers rather than younger kids, where they have their Disney Netbooks.
So far it looks like it will be available with two color options, one is bright yellow with a kind of “Go Faster” black stripes running down the lid, that you might expect to see on a car. The other is just all black with an aluminum frame.
Specification wise the Asus 1001PQ is fairly standard with a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, powered by the Intel Atom N450 1.66Ghz processor, with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.
It looks to be running Windows XP on the display model. It also comes with a parental control application and a kid friendly browser along with “Magic Desktop” games and applications.
Other features of the 1001PQ include a 0.3MP webcam, WiFi, 3x USB 2.0 port and an 11 hour 6-cell 48wh battery.
No price or release date just yet, but we expect it to be reasonably priced.
