If you're one of those people who were on the fence about whether to buy a netbook or a notebook, there's something new that might help you decide. The new Asus Eee PC E1004DN is the same light-weight, easy-to-use netbook you know and love, but with a twist: a Super-Multi optical disc drive.
The Eee PC 1004DN will be the first Eee PC to have an optical drive. The drive allows users to read and write optical discs for easy data back-ups. CrunchGear says the new Eee PC will have the Super-Multi DVD burner, as well as a "chiclet-style keyboard, an Express Card slot, multi-touch trackpad, brushed aluminum casing, and almost six hours of battery life."
The 10-inch LCD display supports 720p high definition playback. Neither price or release date have been annouced yet, but rumors allude to a mid-April release.
