Asus: out with the 7" & in with the Eee PC 1008HA

Computers, Laptops / Notebooks

Hands up who wants a 1-inch thick laptop with an edge-to-edge 10-inch screen from Asus? Keep your hands up if you mind that it’s just a touch over 1kg. And keep them up still if you’ve a problem with paying 600 Euros for it. What about if I tell you the battery is non-replaceable? Yeah, I’m not seeing quite so many takers now.

Still, the Asus Eee PC 1008HA is pretty little thing. No, it’s more than pretty. It’s swish, sexy. It’s debonair. Yes, that’s it. Hands up if you want to own a debonair laptop?

No word on the full specs as yet but we do know it’ll be Atom powered with the GN40 chipset, it’ll have HSDPA and Draft-N wireless connectivity and a 92% full size keyboard when it hits the shelves this spring. Time for the pound to stage a huge recovery.
