It looks like the dual-core netbooks are beginning to come available. The latest model is the Asus Eee PC 1015PN which is running the Intel Atom N550 processor. The 1015PN is available in a few color options to include white, black, red and blue, though at present they are not all in stock. And strangely enough, they are all priced at $429.99, except for the black model which is $10 higher at $439.99. That said, the black model is currently in stock, so maybe the are putting a premium on the price in that respect. Either way though, it is only a $10 difference. As for the specs, the Eee PC 1015PN comes with a 10.1 inch (1024 x 600) WSVGA matte finish display, 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 processor, 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, up to 9.5 hours of battery life and Windows 7 Starter. In addition you can also expect to find a 92 percent full-size chicklet style keyboard and a multi-touch capable trackpad.
