The Asus Eee PC 1101HA has been available in parts of Europe for a few weeks, but it just popped up at a couple of American stores. The 11.6 inch laptop sports a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU, a 1366 x 768 pixel glossy display. 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and Windows XP. It has a 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 6 cell, 62Whr battery.
The Eee PC 1101HA looks like a bigger version of the 10 inch Eee PC 1008HA. It has the same “seashell” style case, with a textured touchpad and similar coloring. I’m a bit disappointed to see the Atom Z520 processor and Intel GMA 500 graphics in this device. The Eee PC T91, with its 1024 x600 pixel display felt sluggish with these specs. I can’t imagine they’ll work better on a higher resolution display.
On the other hand, we’ve already seen evidence that the Eee PC 1101HA can be overclocked to run at up to 32% its normal clock speed. And that could make all the difference.
