Asus has announced a newly updated Eee netbook called the Eee 1000HE that is available for pre-order right now. The netbook claims to be the first machine on the market to use the new Intel N280 Atom CPU. The machine also uses the Super Hybrid Engine to boost CPU speed and get extended battery life from the machine.

Features include 802.11b/g/n network connectivity and Bluetooth. Internal storage is to a 160GB HDD and Asus offers 10GB of encrypted online storage space. Battery life is reported to be 9.5 hours from Asus.
The new Asus keyboard is used on the 1000HE, which looks much like the keyboard on a MacBook and puts the right shift key in the correct space, a complaint many have with the Eee keyboard. The machine will sell for $399 and those who pre-order will get $25 off that price. The machine will come in black or blue colors in America.
