Other specs include 1GB of RAM, 250GB HDD, 1.3MP webcam, WiFi (n), Bluetooth 2.1 and 6-cell battery giving up to 11 hours of life per full charge.


The 1005PR also includes a chiclet style keyboard. It shiped with a copy of Windows 7 Starter pre-installed and is backed with a one year warranty in the U.S. for an MSRP of $399.99.
