(Confirm like if you have the machine that fits- is it with a lovely matte screen?)

Eee PC 1005PX is “another pretty small seashell that ASUS has washed up on the shore” that is still a machine from firefly series.

Like the Asus Eee PC 1001PX the Eee 1005PX also available in many different colors. The appearance is almost the same if you don’t look carefully, you would think this is the same model. However, the Eee PC 1005PX has more colors available such as Pink as the Eee PC 1001PX don’t have.

Further more, there is a slightly a bigger Hard drive as standard( 250gb instead of 160) and MUCH beter battery lifetime on Asus Eee PC 1005PX, it comes with standard 6 cell battery. This is why it is a little bit heavier and thicker. 1.27 Kilo and a little bit thicker
