I recently reviewed the Asus Eee PC 1005HA, and one of my only real complaints is that the netbook has a glossy, reflective display. This can be a problem if you’re outdoors or in a brightly lit area where the screen turns into a bit of a mirror. But as it turns out, there are three versions of the 1005HA. Two have glossy screens, while one has a matte display. Unfortunately, the Eee PC 1005HA-M with a matte display isn’t currently available in the US. But it is shipping in Europe, and French site Blogeee recently snapped a few photos of the matte-screen version of this netbook.
There are some trade-0ffs. The model I reviewed, which is the Eee PC 1005HA-H comes with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU and a 6 cell battery that Asus rates as a 10 hour battery. The Eee PC 1005HA-M has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU and a 6 cell, 8 hour battery.
