Asus Eee PC 1005HA Seashell Review Roundup

June 23, 2009 at 11:38 pm


Asus Eee PC 1005HA Seashell The Asus Eee PC 1005HA netbook was officially launched in the US market today. Two SKUs have been announced, the 1005HA-V and 1005HA-P. The 1005HA-V comes with the 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor, a smaller capacity 6-cell battery and no Bluetooth. The 1005HA-P has the faster 1.66GHz N280 processor, a higher capacity 6-cell battery and Bluetooth. Overall, the Eee PC 1005HA is part of the Seashell family and therefore shares the design seen in the super-thin 1008HA Seashell.

It differs mainly be having a removable battery as well as a full-sized VGA port. You won’t find any flaps covering the ports on the 1005HA either. To account for the removable battery, the 1005HA is marginally heavier and thicker than the 1008HA. A number of publications released their reviews of the 10-inch Eee PC 1005HA netbook today.

Engadget found that it performed nearly identically to the 1008HA. The keyboard and touchpad were a joy to use and they managed to get 8.5 hours out of the 6-cell battery. They feel it is a good addition to the Seashell line-up and that the changes made are positive ones, even better considering the fact that it is $40 cheaper.

Laptop Mag views the 1008HA as the “most well rounded Eee PC to date”. In particular, they cite its attractive design, good keyboard and strong battery life (lasting nearly 9 hours). They still prefer the Toshiba NB205 as their number one netbook choice, but the 1005HA is a close second.

Computer Shopper awarded the 1005HA an “Editors’ Choice” award and scored 8.8. Whilst they found it to be a fingerprint magnet and heavy, hits value positioning, stylish design and long battery life more than compensated for it. Lastly, Liliputing also found it to be a model that’s well worth checking out.

    The new 1005HA looks real nice, and knowing the battery lasts around 8-9 hours is comforting. I think I’ll be ordering one of these real soon!

    Asus 1005ha, is good, but having spoken to sales person at ccstrade.co.uk informed me its available in x 2 versions x 1 H = highend and x 1 M = Mainstream…
    the M version does not have bluetooth and protective case and has shorter battery life. Further investigation revealed that the asus eee pc 1008ha is a lot thinner and lighter has all the toys bluetooth faster processor but shorter battery life.

    I say the Asus eee pc S101 is stil KING of Netbooks

    ASUS Eee PC 1005HA is getting ugly! The first Eee PC used to look more solid.

    Looks great! I’m thinking about getting the 1005ha-v for about $339.99 with Free Shipping along with a Leather Kroo Pouch for $14.95 at Amazon.com. It’s just what I need; extreme portability with a 10.1″ screen, wi-fi, a stylish look. I’m in college seeking an Associates in Computer Programming and when I have family vacations, I’ve had to do all my C++ assignments when I get back, (not to mention the fact that I don’t use the internet when I’m away from town). The last time the family went out of town and came back, I was up until 4 am working and perfecting my C++ program that was due at 8 am the same day. I really don’t want to do that again. So this computer is a great replacement over the 1000ha, that I had been looking at earlier. it has a longer battery life, it’s lighter, and it has a fill sized shift key, so I’ll adjust better to the keyboard size. Plus the it’s easy to upgrade the memory and change the components, from the videos i’ve seen on YouTube. It’s a great buy!

    I purchased the Asus Eee PC 1005HA-P in the end because it dropped from $378.99 to $349.99. Overall the 1005HA-P has a better keyboard, battery life and weighs less than the Eee PC 1000HE.

    And I got if for only $350 on Amazon… Free Shipping. But the price has already shot back up to $378.99 again.

    Eee PC 1005HA-P:
    Up to 10.5 hrs battery life
    Weighs approximately 2.5 lbs – 2.8 lbs
    It doesn’t have an outlined trackpad
    Trackpad bumps – so you can find it in the dark
    Rocker button (under the trackpad – instead of two separate buttons for left and right click)
    Full sized Right Shift Key
    Has same capabilities as 1000HE
    Available in Black and Blue (1005HA-P model only)

    I forgot… the 1005HA-P also has the multi-touch pad:

    Zoom-In / Zoom-Out
    Third finger Right-Click

    ….Yes.

    It just arrived yesterday ^_^ About the multi-touch pad… It has Zoom-In / Zoom-Out, Vertical & Horizontal Scroll, a rocker button below the touch pad, the touch pad looks to be flush with the netbook’s chasis, & u can select and double-click using the touch pad alone.

    Some have complained about the power adapter. The tip that plugs into the computer is shockingly small. It clicks into place, though, providing a good connection. Just be sure you push it in far enough. The power adapter itself is quite small, and I’ve had no issues with either it or the computer itself getting hot while charging or in use. asus netbook sales
