The Asus Eee PC 1000H and 1000HE are very similar. But the newer Eee PC 1000HE has a slightly faster processor, a better battery, and a new “chiclet-style” keyboard that many users find easier to type on. But if you already have an Eee PC 1000H and don’t want to buy a new computer just for those features, there’s hope. The Eee PC 1000HE battery should work just fine on the older netbook (although Asus doesn’t appear to be selling replacement 8700mAh batteries yet). And as several members of the EeeUser Forums have discovered, the Eee PC 1000HE keyboard is also compatible with the Eee PC 1000H.

Basically all you need to do is order a replacement keyboard from the Asus store for $15 and swap it out for the standard Eee PC 1000H keyboard. There are a few extra metal tabs on the new keyboard, which you may need to cut of in order to make the keyboard fit properly into the computer chassis. But when you plug in the keyboard it should work just fine. Bear in mind, there’s a difference between should and will. At least one person who has tried this hack/upgrade found that the computer didn’t recognize all of the keys on the keyboard, but another user reports being able to get the keyboard to work 100%.

  1. Unfortunately the keyboard has been “Out of stock” for several days.
