Asus Eee PC 1008HA - 10in Netbook

 

Andy takes a look at Asus' latest netbook effort, the 'seashell' inspired Eee PC 1008HA netbook.

Hardcore netbook users, who want the very best battery life possible for the least amount of cost, won't find the Eee PC 1008HA to their taste - not least due to the inaccessible battery. Yet, Asus has delivered a very refined and classy netbook...

Asus Eee PC 1008HA notebook

 

The Asus Eee PC 1008HA more or less has the same innards as 1005HA, only they've sheared a good deal off its overall size and wound up with a netbook that's only 1-inch thick at it's thickest point and with the lid closed. The Eee PC 1008HA looks as...

Thin chassis, light weight, powerful processor

Built-in battery limits expandable power options

The Eee PC 1008HA looks as sleek as a high-end laptop, only without the price tag. Its looks are far removed from the OEM-looking netbooks of the past. This Asus Seashell does have the more powerful CPU that we wished for in the 1005HA and only at £80...

Asus Eee PC 1008HA SeaShell review

 

Asus' commitment to its Eee PC line has been nothing short of relentless. Barely a week goes by when we don't report on a slightly tweaked iteration of the machine that kicked off the whole netbook revolution. So it could be easy to dismiss the latest...

With its slimline frame and glossy finish, can the Eee PC Seashell sate the appetite of style-conscious gadgeteers on a budget?

The hottest looking netbook we've seen so far, the Seashell shows how far these tiny machines have come

Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell review

 

Asus returns with a netbook apparently inspired by a Seashell

Adequate - if over shiny - screen ; Slim, unisex profile ; Decent battery life ; Low-voltage architecture ; Pleasant keyboard

Surprisingly heavy ; Mildly lacking graphics ; Only a half-generation leap ; 1GB RAM is not enough ; About £150 too expensive

Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell review

 

The Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell is thin, sleek, and light, and launches in the UK on May 15 2009. Asus may be spitting out more revisions of its Asus Eee PC netbook line than we can count, but at least its designers are continuing to look at ways to...

Without properly benchmarking the Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell, we can't give a definitive verdict. But the early signs look good, and we think the Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell will be a winner.

European Netbook 2009-2010 -> ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell

 

The rounded corners and the glossy surfaces define the 'Seashell' style of the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA. The unit is slim and light and very easy to carry. The 10 inch LED-backlight wide display of 1024x600 pixels is one the largest in its category. The...

Seashell Eee PC 1008HA

 

THE ASUS SEASHELL design initiative surrounding its new netbooks has so far yielded three devices, the 11-inch screen 1101HA, the 10-inch 1005HA that we reviewed recently and the final model, the 1008HA. These are the new designs that we've been told...

Fast enough processor, good design, very thin build, decent screen size and dimensions

Possibly the hidden ports, the jury is still out

Although these new models all have the same aesthetic look, the 1008HA sets itself apart from the crowd with its slim-line build that might be Asus's take on the Apple Air notebook, only in netbook form

Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell

 

Presumably having taken a blow to the head and woken with a small epiphany, a la Doc Brown in Back to the Future, Asus ‘invented' the netbook back in 2007. The Seashell – or to give it its full name, the Asus Eee PC 1008HA – is its latest Eee-branded...

The sexiest netbook by far

Expensive for a netbook. It's lost a USB port

The Eee PC was already a design classic, and now the Seashell has added a further string to its bow: sexiness!
