ASUS 1000HE up for preorder at $374


That upcoming 10-inch ASUS netbook with the fancy Sony/Mac-style chiclet keyboard is waiting for you at if you’re interested. The ship date is listed as two to three weeks but the price is real nice at just $374 for the blue or black model.

Other features include:

  • New Intel Atom 280 CPU at 1.66GHz and with a 667MHz front-side bus
  • Six cell battery lasts up to 9.5 hours (according to ASUS)
  • 10-inch screen at 1024×600 resolution
  • 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth
  • 160GB SATA hard drive
  • 1GB of RAM

That seemingly usable keyboard and day-long battery life should make this thing pretty appealing to a fair amount of people. Now if they’d just bump up that screen resolution…
