Folks at pcauthority were able to get their hands on the EEE PC 1004DN, the first netbook with built-in DVD burner.
The real killer feature here is that optical drive; it’s a big departure for the netbook category, and adds backup capability and software installation possibilities that other systems lack. In addition, there’s an Eee Storage function, to wirelessly backup your system.
The 1004DN is powered by Intel Atom N280 processor clocked at @1.66GHz speed. The HDD capacity is 120GB and it comes with 1GB of RAM. Obviously, the main feature of is the DVD burner, which is surely going to catch the attention of those who did not give much attention to the netbooks due to lack of DVD burner.
Personally, I still do not see the need to have a netbook with built in DVD burner.
