Asus Sirocco is just a repainted Netbook

Other than a new textured paint job, the Sirocco sports the same 10.1-inch display, Intel N550 dual-core Atom processor, and Windows 7 Starter operating system as the 1015PEM.

Despite the hype surrounding the teaser image to promote Asus' new Eee PC series dubbed "Sirocco," it turns out the product is little more than a pimped-up Asus Eee PC 1015PEM Netbook.

Other than a new textured paint job in purple, gold, or pink, the Sirocco sports the same 10.1-inch display, Intel N550 dual-core Atom processor, and Windows 7 Starter operating system as the 1015PEM. You can check out a hands-on video after the jump, but we're guessing you'll probably want to skip this one and wait for Fusion-powered minilaptops instead.
