Asus EEE PC 1005PE - Specs, Price, Demo - Spotted in the Philippines ?!

Check out Asus' first netbook to run on Intel Atom Pine Trail Platform:

Asus eeePC SeaShell 1005 PE

Aside from being powered by Intel Atom N450, 1005PE also features ASUS' new proprietary Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) technology. SHE tailors Eee PC Seashell's energy consumption patterns to suit any task at hand - in effect, optimizing energy efficiency and reducing power usage by up to 15%. When you put SHE and Pine Trail platform together, you get an Eee PC netbook that delivers up to 14 hours of battery life on but a single charge.
