While Asus is busy eliminating netbook models in countries like the UK and France, the company keeps pumping out new members of the Eee PC family in other parts of the world. The Eee PC 1002HAE recently went on sale in Japan, and Portable Monkey has posted a few photos and a short hands-on video of a red version. You can check out the video after the break.
In a nutshell, the Eee PC 1002HAE is a lot like the Eee PC 1002HA which I reviewed a few months ago. But it has a lighter aluminum case and a slightly faster 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU (The Eee PC 1002HA had a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor).
The new model also comes in a couple of new colors, including red, gray, and blue. I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of the color red, but this netbook does look pretty slick in that color.
