Asus reveals next-gen Eee PCs

At the CeBIT tradeshow in Germany, Asus has unveiled the next lot of Eee PC netbooks that it'll be thrusting upon the world. There's the Eee PC 1018P, the Eee PC Seashell 1015 range and the Eee PC 1016P.

The Eee PC 1018P has a metal shell, with a mere 18mm of thickness. It has a 10.1-inch display, comes in four different colours and will be equipped with next-generation USB 3.0, for blinding 4.8Gbps transfer speeds. It should manage up to 14 hours of battery life, and there's 500GB of cloud storage bundled.

Alongside, there's also the Eee PC 1015P - which has a removable battery, wider touchpad and wide range of colour options, and the EE PC 1016P - which also has the aluminium shell, but specs slightly lower. We're trying to get more details of what those specs are, exactly. When we hear back from the company, we'll let you know.
