Upcoming Asus Eee PC's Have 14-Hour Battery

French tech site Blogee has come across supposed leaked details on three Asus Eee PCs that will be on display at CeBit 2010. While the info doesn't get into hardware specifics, the three models on display will be the Eee PC 1018P, the Eee PC 1016P, and the Eee PC 1015P. All three models will sports a 10-inch display and possibly the latest Pine Trail Atom processors.

SlashGear reports that the Asus Eee PC 1015P is merely a refresh on the existing 1005P using the same matte display and chiclet keys. The only apparent difference with this "refreshed" version is a larger touchpad, an aluminum body, and a battery life of up to 14 hours (with wireless turned off).

The Asus Eee PC 1018P is touted to be the company's thinnest netbook thus far, measuring just 18-mm thick. This device will sport a fingerprint scanner, USB 3.0, and a battery life of up to 10 hours.

As for the Asus Eee PC 1016P, the company has focused on the business class, sporting chiclet keys, an aluminum chassis, a squared-off design, and a battery life of up to 14 hours.

Expect to know more about these three netbooks next week during the CeBIT 2010 show.

    USB 3.0 on the Asus Eee PC 1018P is a waste of resources. The Atom platform, including supporting chipsets, are way to slow to opperate at full 5Gbps performance. Even if someone releases another chip that can handle such performance for the Atom, Intel would be hypocratic by letting that company support the Atom yet suing nVidia for the ION chips for the Atom.

    Exactly what i was thinking before finishing the article. The eee touch version seemed very interesting. Too bad there 's no more hype about it. Let's see if there's some follow up about the new pine-trail eee touch.

    Wow. I was happy with my eee 904H's 6.5 hour battery life, 14 is awesome! Who in their right mind would get an iPad over an eee?

    The title is misleading. There are current Eee Pc's with a 14 hour battery life.

    Can it go faster than USB2.0? If so, then it isn't a waste. If not then yeah I agree, unless they make things that only work with 3.0.
