ASUS Eee PC 1000HE is the company’s first to use the new 1.66GHz Atom processor that gets both a faster 667MHz system bus and faster integrated graphics that ASUS claims is HD-capable. The new chip combined with an equally new high-density battery gives the system as much as 9.5 hours of runtime without using a bulky add-on. ASUS doesn’t say when the netbook ships but is taking pre-orders today for the $399 system, which will come in black and blue colors with a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a built-in webcam. Early orders also get a $25 discount.
