Asus has posted an official product page for the Eee PC 1005HA, which it’s calling a “Seashell” netbook, a name previously reserved for the Eee PC 1008HA. But at first glance, the Eee PC 1005HA looks almost exactly like the 1008HA. The primary difference is that the Eee PC 1005HA is a tad thicker and heavier than the recently launched Eee PC 1008HA, and the newer model also has a user replaceable battery.
In fact, while the Eee PC 1008HA has a battery tucked away inside the netbook that requires an Asus technician or a really serious hacker to replace, the Eee PC 1005HA will come with a choice of batteries. You can get a 3 cell, 23W/h battery that Asus says will run for up to 4 hours, or a 6 cell, 48W/h battery that’s good for 8.5 hours. And if that ain’t enough for you, there’s also an optional 63W/h battery that will run for up to 10.5 hours.
The Eee PC 1005HA will measure 10.3″ x 7″ x 1.4″ and weigh between 2.4 and and 2.8 pounds depending on the battery. I comes in four colors: white, black, pink and blue.
