Asus Eee PC 1005HA and 1101HA officially announced for UK

July 8, 2009 at 4:19 pm


Asus Eee PC 1005HAWhilst we already know lots about the Eee PC 1005HA and 1101HA Seashell netbooks, both models have officially been announced for the UK market today. The 10-inch 1005HA will come in two different SKUs and launch at the end of the month. We would suggest that consumers pay special attention to both model numbers as there are significant differences between both SKUs.

The cheaper 1.6GHz N270 Atom netbook will cost £329 and is available in black (1005HA-BLK083X) and white (1005HA-WHI064X). This model comes with a lower-rated 6-cell battery (4400 mAh) that should be good for 8.5 hours according to the company. You will not find Bluetooth on this model and it only has a 0.3MP webcam. The N270 SKU also has a matte (1024 x 600) display. Asus also does not include a netbook sleeve with this version.

The more expensive 1.66GHz N280 Atom model costs £379 and is also available in black (1005HA-BLK068X) and white (1005HA-WHI050X). This model includes Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 1.3MP webcam, a netbook sleeve and a higher capacity 6-cell battery (5600 mAh) good for 10.5 hours. This version also comes with a glossy screen.

The 11.6-inch 1101HA will come in two colours, black (1101HA-BLK004X) and white (1101HA-WHI004X). It is powered by a 1.33GHz Z520 Atom CPU and comes with a 1366 x 768 resolution display, full-sized keyboard, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. It also comes with a 6-cell 4400mAh battery that should be good for 8.5 hours. The 1101HA will be released within the next couple of weeks for a RRP of £379.

    Is there any information when Asus 1005HA is coming sale at Europe? I can find it only from Germany (Ebay) and they only have German Windows version. I would like English version. At Finland resellers dont have information.

    I think that problem is special keyboard that is used at Scandinavia. Reseller did say that with good luck maybe this year..

    Why only a Intel® Atom™ processor Z520 1.33GHz on the 1101HA!?!?!

    That’s making it a hard decision for me to decide between the full spec 1005HA or the 1101.

    I would love the extra resolution but also want the best processor money can buy at the moment for a netbook!

    Mmmmm descisions descisions. Life’s hard eh!?

Got something to say?
