Asus Eee PC 1008HA gets priced up
Another expensive netbook
The Asus Eee PC 1008HA, also known as the Seashell has finally been given a launch date and a price, at least in the UK thanks to PC Advisor who managed to get their local Asus office to spill the beans.
The Eee PC 1008HA is mean to hit retail in the UK on the 15th, which is just over a week away, but we doubt that too many people will be impressed by the price, as it will retail for £379 (€432/$573) in the UK, which we don't know if it includes VAT or not.
Despite its new design and low weight, we're not sure if most people are willing to pay this much for what really is an underpowered sub-notebook. Still, it's one of the best looking netbooks to date which might still convince some people to spend their money on it.
