Pictures : Asus EEE PC 1005HA Netbook Details Emerge

Asus is going back to basics with the new 1005HA which is set to be the company's cheapest 10-inch netbook on the market by a slim margin when it comes out later this year.

The 1005HA, which many thought would be a version of the 1008HA with a removable battery, is set to be a slightly larger version of the Asus EEE PC 1000H which is currently on the market.

There will be 2 versions one; the more expensive version (-H) will come with a Glare-Type screen, a newer N280 Atom CPU running at 1.66GHz, Bluetooth 2.1+ as well as a 2800mAh 6-cell battery.

The cheaper (-M) has no bluetooth, sports the cheaper 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU and a 2200mAh battery. All the pictures that you need are on French blogging website,

Both will carry 1GB RAM, have a 1024x600 pixels resolution, Wireless-N Wifi, 1.3-megapixel webcam, card reader, three USB ports and a 160GB hard disk drive.

Compared to the 1008HA, they will be both much heavier (300g more) and bulkier (nearly 10mm thicker at the thickest edge). The 1005HA-H has a suggested retail price of £266 which is slightly less than the £277 the 1000H sells for at Ebuyer.

Our Comments

The EEE PC 1005HA is kinda cheap compared to the rest of the competition. The Dell Mini 1000v might be cheaper but then it does not have a 160GB hard disk drive or Windows XP. Overall, the 1005HA, we believe, will be the star attraction from Asus for the next few months. Apparently, Asus will be getting rid of sub 10-inch netbooks as well.
