Asus may end up introducing not one, but two new Eee PC models next month at Computex. We've already heard about (and seen pictures of) the Atom-based Eee PC 901, but now UMPC Fever quotes an Asus statement that says an Eee PC 1000-series laptop will launch at the same time.
Judging by the name, the Eee PC 1000 may very well have a 10" display—up from the Eee PC 900/901's 8.9" screen and the Eee PC 701's 7" panel. The Asus statement doesn't say much about the machine other than the name, though, and we're left to wonder whether it will feature a Celeron processor like existing models or an Atom chip like the 901. However, we already have a pretty good idea of what it will look like:
Asus showcased a 10" Eee PC 1001 at Computex last year, and we were lucky enough to take photos of it in the company's show booth. Asus may have updated the design in the meantime, but the system we saw featured a larger keyboard, a different hinge design, and a thinner palm rest area than today's 701 and 900 systems.
