ASUS Eee PC 1015PW Dips Below $300, Perfect Time To Get A Stylish Netbook

ASUS Eee PC 1015PW close-upGetting a netbook that’s relatively stylish is proving less difficult now than in the recent past. Style conscience buyers have options like Acer’s Aspire One Happy 1 & 2 families of netbooks or ASUS’ Eee PC 1015PW Sirocco, each of which is available now in many different color options.
There are options out there but for this post let’s focus on the ASUS Eee PC 1015PW Sirocco netbook which was released only earlier this year. The 1015PW was teased for weeks before finally being unveiled, but when it was it caused a bit of a stir in the netbook world. The body design of the 1015PW is very different from the other Eee PC netbooks ASUS offers, there are distinct lines that resemble sand (after wind has touch it).

When ASUS launched the 1015PW there were three extravagant color choices; Gold, Pink and Purple. There was a Black model but it doesn’t look near as unique as the other three color options. You can see the lids for the three more colorful options below…

ASUS originally launched the four 1015PW’s with an MSRP of $349 or $399. At the moment you can pick-up a ASUS Eee PC 1015PW Sirocco netbook for as little as $293.58 shipped online, and that’s with the dual-core 1.5 GHz Intel Atom N550 processor, 1 GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD.
Why the price drop? The netbook market isn’t what it used to be and many models are dropping drastically in price to get more competitive. However this works into your favor if you are in the market for a netbook, no matter what some may say netbooks are still capable little laptops. To get the most out of a netbook you should just add an extra 1GB (for a total of 2GB) and run Ubuntu, after those slight alterations a netbook like the 1015PW can be made infinitely better. And the best part is those two changes don’t cost very much at all.
Getting 2GB of DDR3 SO-DIMM memory compatible with the 1015PW can cost as little as $21.95 and installing Ubuntu is free and pretty easy. Once you make those two changes the ASUS Eee PC 1015PW is better than any tablet.
