Otherwise, the laptop features the same dual-core N570 processor, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and the same display as the 1015PN. However, the 1015PX will also come in two different versions, the 1015PX-P and the 1015PX-M.

Eee PC T101MT
Rounding off the pre-order netbooks available today is the Eee PC T101MT. While it features the same Atom N570 processor as its earlier mentioned counterparts, the T101MT can be converted into a tablet via its swivel hinge. The laptop comes with the same 10.1” display with 1024x600 pixel resolution as the 1015 brothers but includes multi-touch support. The T101MT will also be available in two different versions a Professional version and a Starter version. The higher-end T101MT Pro will come with a 320GB HDD, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and Windows 7 Professional. On the other hand, the Starter version will only have a 250GB HDD,1GB of DDR3 RAM and will come with Windows 7 Starter version.
