ASUS Eee PC Seashell 2 with removable batteryThis is the Eee PC 1008P, the Seashell 2, which is not due to be unveiled until CES, but thanks to HardwareZone we have these images to check out in the meantime. The exterior was designed by Karim Rashid and under the hood is Intel’s Pine Trail architecture with an N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB of storage.
