The Asus Eee PC 1008HA that Asus introduced at CeBIT is one of the thinnest and lightest netbooks from Asus to date. It has a new keybaord and touchpad design, and the chassis is designed so that the computer lid folds down behind the body of the computer instead of over the top, which gives the netbook a smaller overall footprint than earlier models.

The one bit of information that’s been missing up until now is the price. But Netbook Choice reports that Asus plans to sell the netbook for £359 in the UK, including VAT. That’s the equivalent of about $513 US, but I suspect the computer will cost less than $500 when Asus introduces it in the US. Computers tend to be cheaper in the states.

  1. Have we had any takers on specs yet?

    I’m expecting 1.8″ hdd or 16gb ssd as in S101: probably paired with a Z-series atom and Poulsbo chipset. But hey it’d be great if I’m wrong.

    Sooooooooo yeah, as gorgeous as it is, can’t say I’m too excited: as it’s not liable to go anywhere a 2140 or NC10 can’t or faster.

    1. …LoL…just finished reading the write up after the jump and the site purports N280 and 160gb HDD. Now whether or not that turns out to be 1.8″ PATA or 2.5″ SATA isn’t stated, regardless it’s still the first talk of specifications I’ve read since the unveiling @ CeBit. But hey, Netbook Choice were the 1rst to call the HP 2140 w/ATOM so kudos to them for another coup if it turns out correct

      As I said before, I’d love to be wrong; but I’m skeptical of the 945’s thermals fitting in that form factor. Of course it really isn’t all that much smaller than the HP mini 1000 which managed to cram Diamondville in there, so it’s certainly possible, but even then we were still stuck with the 1.8″ HDD which is the biggest performance bottleneck. I mean if we can’t have SSD- can’t imagine why- OR SATA- don’t need to imagine I know it can’t fit- with these thin and light netbooks then I’d just as soon have a Menlow “Z” series-chipset in there to yield better efficiency returns on battery life.

      Perhaps any Dell mini 10/12 or HP mini 1000 owners would care to chime in?
      Which do you prefer Diamondville or Menlow Netbooks?
