Asus has apparently introduced yet another model in its ever-expanding Eee PC lineup. The Asus Eee PC 1000H-X will apparently be available in Japan next week for about 60,000 Yen or $600 US. But looking at the specs, I’ll be darned if I can figure out what makes this netbook different from the Asus Eee PC 1000H that’s already available in various parts of the globe. So I’m calling for round 2 of “one of these things is not like the other.”
Earlier today I posted images of two netbook keyboards and many of you helped me spot the differences between the two. Many were rather obvious, but not easy to spot at first. This challenge will be a bit harder.
Take a look at the specs for the 1000H-X and the 1000H and let me know if you see any differences. Both machines seeem to have the same dimensions, an Intel Atom CPU, a 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and Windows XP. They’ve each got the same number of ports, and appear to have the same screen, keyboard, and other components. Am I missing something, or do you think the “X” just means this is the Japanese model?
