The Asus Eee PC 1002HAE is very similar to the Eee PC 1002HA apart from the fact that it has a sleek aluminium skin, chiclet keyboard and the faster 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU (the 1002HA has a N270 Atom). It certainly looks very attractive and it’s a shame that Asus have only confirmed this for the Japanese market until now. Peter from Portable Monkey has gone hands-on with a ‘Deep Red’ version and provided his initial thoughts.
From the exterior it looks as if not has much has changed from the Eee PC 1002HA. However, the lighter aluminium casing brings the weight down from 1.45kg to 1.2kg. It’s nice to see the Eee PC 1002HAE using a matte display, although it does have glossy innards. A full review is expected shortly, in the meantime check out the video hands-on after the break.
