Asus and Disney have joined forces to launch a Disney-branded Eee PC netbook.

The 8.9in MK90H netbook is available in princess pink or magic blue. A gadget tray on the desktop offers a number of different Disney-brand applications including stopwatch, digital memo pad and a Disney-themed web browser.

Running Windows XP Home and powered by the usual Intel Atom N270 processor, the Disney Eee PC has parental controls software preinstalled, comes with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB bump-proof hard disk drive.

"Today's children are tech-savvy and demanding when it comes to new gadgets and toys," said Edward Catchpole, senior vice president, toys &  electronics for Disney consumer products europe.

"The Disney Netbook, designed together by Asus and the Disney team, is a no-compromise device. There are plenty of terrific features and fun applications designed just for children, but parents have ultimate control over the experience: they have power to set limits on how their children are using the PC while ensuring a safe online experience."

The Disney Eee PC MK90 also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in stereo speakers, a 0.3Mp webcam, a spill-proof keyboard and three USB ports.

The Disney Eee PC costs £299 and is available now.
