ASUS Targets Tweens with the Eee PC 1001PQ
      #38148 - 08/06/10 03:10 PM

ASUS today announced the launch of the Eee PC 1001PQ, a netbook designed to make it easy for pre-adolescents to learn and have fun. The Intel Atom N450 powered 1001PQ comes with full PC functionalities, and features a 10.1 inch LED backlit display, Wi-Fi, and a built-in 0.3 megapixel camera. Here is more info on this new ASUS netbook:

Designed for Preteens

The seashell-inspired design of the Eee PC 1001PQ gives it sleek curves and lines that appeal to the young. It is available in a Flame Purple or Vibrant Gold color scheme and comes with stickers to let pre-adolescents express themselves by customizing their 1001PQ.

The 1001PQ runs on Microsoft Windows 7 and features the preteen-friendly Inspirus Desktop. The latter is an icon-based interface designed to make it easy for pre-adolescents to have fun, learn, and communicate with friends and family.

The ASUS 1001PQ features built-in parental controls that lets parents choose which websites their children can visit, their email contacts, and the programs they can access. These restrictions can be set to a timetable, so parents can keep track of their child?s net activities as well.
