In an ongoing effort to confuse the heck out of us, Asus has launched yet another netbook with a name that’s strikingly similar to an existing model. The Eee PC 1002H is almost exactly like the Eee PC 1002HA (full review), but it has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU instead of a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, and features the new Asus chiclet-style keyboard. It’s also shown in white on the company web site, while the 1002HA is shown in a dark gray/charcoal color. The new netbook will also be available in pink and black, while the 1002HA is gray only.
Here’s a rundown of the specs:
- CPU: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280
- Display: 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 160GB hard drive
- Wireless: 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0
- Webcam: 1.3MP
- I/O: 3 USB ports, headphone, mic, flash card reader, VGA port
- Battery: 5 hours
- Dimensions: 10.4″ x 7.1″ x 1.1″
- Weight: 2.6 pounds
No word on the price or release date yet, but with the Eee PC 1002HA going for about $415 on Amazon, I can’t imagine the new model will cost more than $450 or $500.
I’ve created a new page for the Eee PC 1002H in the Liliputing Product Database, so you can compare it with other, similar models.
