Asus 1008P-KR Case / Mouse

ASUS UK has put together a new ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1008P netbook collection with the help of designer Karim Rashid. We heard hints about the thing back in January, but the collection will go on display this weekend in London.

The 1008P netbook, based on the Eee PC 1008HA will be sold alongside a host of matching accessories, including a slim alligator-styled case and colored mouse.

ASUS’ New Alligator Skin Eee PC 1008P Netbook

Asustek is delivering a new, styled up netbook called the Eee PC 1008P, Karim Rashid Collection. It’s a 10.1-inch netbook with a faux alligator hide exterior and, interestingly, two exchangeable netbook batteries that run for 6 hours each.

Karim Rashid is the New York designer adding his name to the netbook. This is, according to an ASUS rep, the first time the company has ever outsourced design work. You can get the netbook in hot pink or coffee brown. Scent manufacturer Kenzo Parfums will be releasing new, similarly styled perfumes, so you can smell good while you rock your netbook.

Compared to other designer netbooks, this one is tame in terms of price – a mere $600. It will be released in Hong Kong, Japan, and the US, in that order.

The ASUS Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection Netbook will run Windows 7 with an Atom N450, 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, a 250 GB HDD, and 500 GB of Eee Storage on ASUS’ servers. This sounds like an excellent deal for a mere $600 bucks, so I’d get on it ASAP if you want in.
