Asus Eee PC 1101HA product page live, no Z530 Atom SKU

Asus Eee PC 1101HAThe product page for Asus 11.6-inch Eee PC 1101HA is now live on the Asus Global site. The full specifications have also been listed and disappointingly, it looks like it will only come with a 1.33GHz Z520 Atom processor. When the 1101HA was originally spotted, it was believed that two SKUs were planned – one with the Z520 Atom and another with the more powerful 1.6GHz Z530 Atom processor.

This news was confirmed to us by Asus at a press launch in London yesterday. John Swatton, Marketing Specialist for Asus UK, told us that as things stand there is no plan for a 1.6GHz Z530 SKU. However, he did stress that roadmaps are changing continually and this may change in the future.

Some may view this as disappointing news as, despite having a high-resolution 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display, the 1.3GHz Z520 may not be powerful enough to watch HD content. This is a problem that plagued the 11.6-inch Acer Aspire One 751, that many felt was underpowered. Despite this, the form-factor of the 1101HA is very good and could ultimately become the new netbook standard in our eyes. We’ll be posting our hands-on impressions later, but until then you can see the full list of specifications after the break.
