Today SlashGear reported a new ASUS 1018P Netbook with USB 3.0 out-n-about.Â You can see the bright blue connectors above.Â To give you an idea of what the ASUS 1018P can do, consider working on a Netbook with Intelâ€™s latest Pine Trail Atom N455 and N475 processors, with Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 connectivity along with the promise of 10hrs runtime.
