Asustek Computer, one of the largest proponents of Intel Atom processors and platforms, has quietly introduced a netbook that features Intel’s new Atom chip as well as more advanced 4-series core-logic for netbooks with DirectX 10-class graphics core. The new Eee PC 1000HE not only features up to 9.5 hours battery life, but also supports more advanced features compared to predecessors.

Asus Eee PC 1000HE is based on Intel Atom N280 processor that works at 1.66GHz and uses 667MHz processor system bus as well as Intel GN40 core-logic, a special version of Intel 4-series chipsets with DirectX 10-class integrated graphics core and new input/output controller. The device is equipped with 10” LED-backlit screen with 1024x600 resolution. The netbook also features 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard disk drive, 802.11n wireless network controller and so on.

The new Intel Atom platform featuring GN40 chipset is likely to offer a balance between modern functionality, low power consumption as well as price. Unfortunately, there are no thermal specifications for Intel GN40 available, but its close relative, Intel GL40, consumes up to 12W, which is rather high, hence, new generation netbooks will need to have more capacious batteries.

Asustek Computer claims that thanks to 6-cell high-density battery pack as well as Asus Super Hybrid Engine that adjusts performance and power consumption depending on the actual needs, battery life of the Eee PC 1000HE may reach 9.5 hours, an extremely long battery time for a netbook.

Currently Asus Eee PC 1000HE are available for pre-order at various U.S. stores for $399.
