Front: Eee PC 1005HA / Back: Eee PC 1000H

The Asus Eee PC 1005HA is the second laptop in the Asus “Seashell” series, with a design that Asus officials claim is inspired by seashells. The first was the Eee PC 1008HA, which was a thin and light netbook weighing just 2.4 pounds and measuring an inch thick. The 1005HA (which has a higher capacity, removable battery) is 1.4 inches high at its thickest point and weighs 2.8 pounds. But it bears a striking resemblance to the Eee PC 1008HA and looks positively svelte when compared with the company’s first 10 inch netbook, the Eee PC 1000H.

I don’t happen to have an Eee PC 1008HA lying around at the moment, but I do have a 1005HA and a 1000H, so I decided to pull out a camera and snap a few photos, which you can find after the break. For comparison’s sake, you can check out my photo gallery of the Eee PC 1000H and 1008HA.

The Eee PC 1000H weighs 3.2 pounds, making it one of the heaviest netbooks around. Generally, the Eee PC 1005HA is a bit thinner everywhere except near the back of the unit where the battery sticks out. At that point, the two machines are nearly the same height. But the Eee PC 1005HA has a screen which folds out behind the keyboard instead of above it, which gives the netbook the illusion of being even smaller when the lid is open.

One area where the Eee PC 1000H has the edge is in the screen angles. While neither netbook has a lid that can fold back 180 degrees, the Eee PC 1000H comes an awful lot closer than the 1005HA. While this isn’t a feature I expect to use very often, I know some people who use netbooks as eBook readers like being able to open their laptops up as wide as possible.

  1. so the 1005HA bears a striking resemblance to the 1005HA. Who’d a thunk it.

  2. I simply don’t understand why everybody is going to reflective screens these days. I have a HP 2140, and the glossy screen drives me crazy, I probably avoid using it because the reflection is so bad.
