asus win7 lineup

With Windows 7 set to launch in just a week, we’re about to see a whole lot of netbooks, notebooks, and other computers get a spec bump. And the Asus Eee PC lineup is hardly exempt. At an event in Germany, Asus officials outlined some of the company’s plans for the next generation of the Asus Eee PC Seashell line, including the Eee PC 1005HA, 1008HA, and 1101HA.

For the most part, the info is in keeping with a leaked product roadmap from earlier this year. But here’s the interesting part. Most of the netbooks will ship with Windows 7 Starter Edition, while the Eee PC 1101HA with an 11.6 inch display, 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 260GB hard drive will ship with Windows 7 Home Premium.

The Asus Eee PC 1005HA will be available in two different versions. Both will have 1GB of RAM, 250G hard drives, and Intel Atom N270 processors. The 1005HA-H will have Bluetooth and a 10.5 hour battery, while the 1005HA-M will lack Bluetooth and include an 8.5 hour battery.

The Eee PC 1008HA will have 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, an Atom N280 processor and a 6 hour battery.

  1. An N280 certainly would have been appropriate, but as far as the RAM goes, welcome to the Atom N/Win 7 Starter licensing rules.

    What someone ought to be doing is offering a sub-$500 10.1″ CULV system — other than the screen, same basic specs as the Aspire 1410.

    I’m sure they’re afraid of the market confusion with cheaper netbooks, but I’m sure there would be 10″ fans who would jump at the chance to get a faster system. For that matter, a faster 8.9″ system would be a nice unit, as well.

  2. I like how the “performance fokused” 1005HA-H will have a N270 Atom and 1 Gig of RAM! Woohoo! Sigh.
