Just like the the other netbook manufacturers at this years CES, Asus has been pretty low key with their netbook releases. But along with their new AMD Fusion netbooks, the Eee PC 1015B and Eee PC 1215B they did announce the Asus Eee PC Sirocco netbook.
Now that the Asus Eee PC Sirocco has been announced it turns out that the Asus Sirocco is a special designers edition of the Asus 1015PW which was previously announced in Europe.
We can confirm this from the “Making Waves” slogan that Asus is using for the Sirocco netbook, which is also used on the official Asus page for the 1015PW.
This doesn’t give the Asus Sirocco any less credit, it is a great looking netbook with a unique design and is powered by the Intel Atom N550 dual core processor. Other specifications include a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 pixel LCD, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB / 320GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 10/100 Ethernet, multi card reader.
It also comes with Windows 7 Starter edition, and has a 10-hour battery life. Via NetbookNews
