While the other models (model numbers) are clean cut and easy to understand the 1015PE / P is rather confusing if you ask us. First of all there is the “PE” or “P” at the end, and now there is the “PED”. It is not clear what the difference between the “D” and non “D” models are. But they all seem to have a matte finish, and are available in a choice of colors.
The Asus 1015PED models are then further split into two configuration models. The Asus 1015PED-M for $349, and the Asus 1015PED-P for $379.
Both models (in various colors) are now available to pre-order from ExcaliberPC and are due to ship out July 29th!
The Asus 1015PED-M is the base model and features the Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor, and a 10 hour 48Wh battery.
The Asus 1015PED-P is the higher-end model at $30 more. This model comes with the faster Atom N475 1.83GHz processor, and larger 13 hour 63Wh battery.
Apart from that, both models are the same with a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 pixel matte LCD, a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and Windows 7 Starter Edition.
