Asus looks like it is onto a real winner with the Eee PC Seashell netbook. It marries performance and strong battery life without sacrificing design and a slim form-factor. The official UK launch will be this Friday 15th May with the official price at £379.
Just in time for the launch, it looks like Asus Global has updated its site, with the 1008HA Seashell netbook product page now live. About time too, as we’ve already seen the 1008HA manual, an unboxing and even a couple of reviews!
There isn’t any surprises that I can see from the listing, although it does look like Linux will be an option along with Windows XP. We’ve attached the full specs after the break.
Asus is having a special event to celebrate the Seashell’s launch, if you are interested head over to Tottenham Court Road, London at 10AM. There’s even a chance to win one for those that attend.
