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?

  1. Display a 10-WSVGA (1024 × 600 dots) LCD. CPU, Atom N270 (1.60GHz), chip set and Intel’s. Memory capacity is 1GB, hard disk drive (HDD) capacity of 160GB. Web 1.3 million-pixel camera and ****built-in optical drive****

    1. Wow. I don’t know how I missed that. I wonder if it’s a translation error,
      because I just don’t see how it’s possible to cram an optical drive in a
      netbook this size without a MAJOR redesign. Anyone in the house able to read
      Japanese and tell us if this is a Google Translate mistake?

  2. As for display 10 types WSVGA (1024×600 dot) liquid crystal. CPU Atom N270 (1.60GHz) with, chip set makes Intel make. As for memory capacity 1GB, hard disk device (HDD) as for capacity 160GB. It loads the Web camera of 1,300,000 pixel, does not build in optical drive. USB 3 systems, the mini- D-Sub15 pin, voice input/output is had for interface, MMC, including the card slot of SD/SDHC memory card correspondence. Using the marketing adapter, you can connect with the miniSD/microSD memory card.

    This is the translation from babelfish. It says does not build in optical drive. Who knows now…

    1. Ah, good call. I was having similar “how would you fit that in there” thoughts.

  3. Yeah all Japanese EEE models have the X in them and are exactly the same as their overseas counterparts, the only difference with Japanese models is the different keyboard layout and no Linux option. It’s about time this model arrived here, it’s way overdue.

  4. Dear Asus:

    For the love of all that is holy, would you PLEASE STOP INTRODUCING NEW EEE MODELS FOR A LITTLE WHILE?

    I can barely keep track of which one is which, and I’m a giant geek! How are normal people supposed to deal with it?

    1. Normal people aren’t geeks, so they don’t actually care to keep up with all those models. 😉

  5. And since it’s just a 1000H for Japan, who cares? 😀 We don’t have to keep tracking the region versions.
