Slimmer than the S101
Asus has showed its newest addition to the Eee PC lineup, the 1002HA. Based on the S101 design, the new Eee PC 1002HA will be somewhat slimmer and should have similar specs as the S101.
The new 10-inch Eee PC 1002HA will feature Intel's Atom CPU clocked at 1.6GHz, 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive. The 10-inch display has a native resolution of 1024x600 pixels and the overall design should make the new Eee PC 1002HA much slimmer than previously released Eee PCs. Other noted specs include a 1.3M Webcam and as a surprise, a 2-cell 4200 mAh battery. Either Asus is aiming for a Guinness world record for lowest battery life, or they just want to keep the price at a decent level.
The new Eee PC 1002HA should sell at around €449 in Europe, while the release date is still unknown. Let's just hope that there will be a choice for a beefier battery.
