Asus has released what looks like an official promotional video for the Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell netbook. It’s pretty much what you’d expect, a video showing off the thin and light netbook from a few different angles, highlighting its features (1.6GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, 10.1 inch display, large keyboard, etc), and comparing it to a seashell (I still don’t really think the netbook looks like a seashell, but maybe that’s just me).
But when I took a look at the latest videos from the Asus YouTube channel, I noticed that the company released a more tongue-in-cheek video a few days ago. Folks have been making a lot of noise about just how thin this netbook is. It’s just 0.7 inches thick at its thinnest point. So Asus put together a little video showing one of the unusual situations where the laptop might come in handy: picking a lock credit-card style.
Yeah, that’s obviously not going to work unless there’s a gap in the doorway large enough to stick your finger in, in which case you hardly need the laptop to pick the lock. But it’s a little more creative than posting yet another video showing the netbook fitting into a business sized envelope.
You can check out both videos after the break, or read more about the Eee PC 1008HA in the Liliputing Product Database.
