1002ha via nano knockoff

The Asus Eee PC 1002HA is a classy looking netbook thanks to its brushed metal finish and nice wide keyboard and touchpad. But I get the sense that it’s high price tag was holding it back a bit, and the cheaper Eee PC 1000HE, 1005HA, and other more plasticky netbooks from Asus have probably been better sellers.The Eee PC 1001HA cost about $499 at launch (although you can now pick one up for about $356 after rbate).

Now it looks like a Chinese company has decided to create a knockoff of the Eee PC 1002HA, but rather than slap an Intel Atom chip inside, the company has opted for a VIA Nano processor, which actually performs better under some circumstances, but which I believe sells for a lower price than Intel’s Atom processors.

No word on how much the knockoff will cost, but the odds of finding this machine outside of China anytime soon are slim to none.
