The Asus Eee PC 1008HA may have a super thin and light frame, but there’s something else it has too: A screen which may be prone to cracking. DigiTimes reports that the company purchased some display panels from a secondary supplier due to high demand, and that these screens are more likely to crack.
The problem is apparently being address and Eee PC 1008HA netbooks shipped in the third quarter of 2009 won’t have this problem. But if you have an Eee PC 1008HA with a cracked screen, you may want to contact Asus ASAP to get it taken care of. In the meantime, I wouldn’t panic. It sounds like the issue affects some, but not all of the existing units.
