Update: Now you can read my detailed review of the Eee PC 1005HA.

You know that Asus Eee PC 1005HA I told you about the other day? Yeah, it looks like it’s real. Blogeee reports that Asus is running with the new thin and light form factor it first introduced with the Eee PC 1008HA Shell netbook by introducing a few extra products that look virtually identical. First up is the Eee PC 1005HA-M, which has a 10 inch display, Intel Atom N270 CPU, and a removable battery (unlike the Eee PC 1008HA). It will sell for about €299 in France.

Asus also has another version in the works, known as the Eee PC 1005HA-H. This model will have a €349 price tag, and sport a faster Intel Atom N280 CPU and a battery which Blogee says could run for up to 10.5 hours, although I think there might be something missing in translation, because the site also says it will be a 2800mAh battery. By comparison, the Asus Eee PC 1000HE, which runs for 7 to 9 hours on a charge, has an 8700mAh battery.

While both the Eee PC 1005HA-H and 1005HA-M will look a lot like the Eee PC 1008HA, there are a few differences. The 1005 series netbooks will measure 1.4″ thick, while the 1008HA is just 1″ thick at its thickest point. All three netbooks are the same width and length: 10.3″ x  7″.  Blogee uploaded a handy comparison chart showing more of the similarities and differences to Flickr.

  1. Forget about the mAh, that number doesn’t mean anything, without the voltage.
    You can only compare Watthours Wh = Ah * V

    the 1000HE has 7,4V * 8,7Ah ==> 64 Wh

    I couldn’t imagine that too, the voltage had to be verry high, so i doubt too, that this 6 cell battery has only 2,8 Ah.

    But you cannot compare the mAh’s of the 1005 with the mAh’s of the 1000HE

    1. I was just about to explain that but you beat me to it. It seems like a lot of people these days compare mAh to each other just like we used to with clock speeds. Bigger is better.

      Anyway, nice sum up kronos.

    2. so you’re thinking it’s a super high voltage battery with the 1005HA-Hs? I think if the battery life is comparable to the 1000HE and the price is about the same it seems like a good deal. I wonder if it will be released in the US soon though cause the 1000HE is only a few months old. They seem to be update their netbooks too quickly!
