Asus Eee PC 1008ha Netbook is a revolutionary design that reflects the entire wealth of experience and knowledge gained from the Taiwanese manufacturer in the design and realization of low cost laptop. On the one hand it has kept its burgeoning Eee PC brand in the limelight; on the other it has fostered within us an extreme cynicism at the very mention of a new netbook or Eee PC. The model 1008ha which began about two years ago with the debut of the first Eee PC and continued with a theory of models and different configurations that Asus has made the reference point in this new category of portable devices. Asus isn’t content with labeling this only an Eee PC. The Eee PC 1008HA is the first member of the burgeoning "Seashell" line, a family that already includes this machine and the to-be-released 1005HA.
With a thickness of only 27 millimeters may EEE offspring with an ultra
portable netbook right mentioned. This, of course, but by the small ‘o’
so fine 10-inch screen, the 1008HA weighs just over 1kg. It is
immediately that the 10-inch screen is totally innovative and,
unfortunately, no scheme is LED. This is a missed opportunity which the
battery has "limited" to a 382 minutes. Almost 7 hours and thus
comparable with, for example, the Samsung NC-10. The screen offers a
resolution of 1024 × 600 pixels and is thus not unique in its class. At
this point the new netbook from Asus is a lot of stabbing fall. In yet
another light: The screen has a new type of coating on the TFT
inherited which works even in bright sunlight guaranteed.
Seemingly crafted by nature itself, the Eee PC Seashell draws its
inspiration from seashells and its opalescent and glossy exterior is
crafted by the innovative in-Mold Roller technology. It’s so light and
compact, you can take it anywhere with you! And with sleek curves and
smooth lines hugging its lustrous shell, the Eee PC Seashell will
easily charm passers-by wherever it goes.The entire chassis is covered
by dense gloss lacquer finish Asus Infusion, the result of a molding
technique that protects the fusion frame and abrasions at the same time
giving him an attractive appearance.

Profile of the Asus Eee PC 1008ha has a wedge shape that slopes from
the bottom up to the front. The thickness is so thin that only the
lower half of the sidewall is high enough to host interfaces, all
protected behind plastic fold: on the right side we see a USB, two
audio jack and the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN (from note the particular
technical measure adopted by Asus to allow access to this port), while
on the left side there are mini-VGA, USB and power connector.

With the Eee PC 1008HA ASUS developed its Netbook consistently and with consistency I mean, above all, design, processing quality and form factor. The Seashell is currently the most beautiful Netbook under the sun, as one might suppose me I would suffer in taste calcification, which cares. The industrial design this maximum of the 20th Century to such beauties as the Seashell true, shows the very good keyboard and the trackpad adequately dimensioned. Although ASUS only a single mouse button as the blocked rocker, this is a great feedback and is easy to use. For the keyboard, I must not say much, but I consider them as equal to that of the competing Samsung Nc10. Slightly different layout of the buttons, but a shorter stroke and Very large right shift key and 2 really thick cursor keys (left / right) show that ASUS is also the keyboard layout makes thoughts.
