It is powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 1GB RAM and a 250GB HDD. Other features include the Express Gate instant on OS, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and a 63Whr 6-cell battery good for 11 hours. There is no pricing or availability on this one. The last Asus netbook to feature a HD display (Eee PC 1005HR) never made an appearance outside of Japan.

Asus Eee PC 1005HRThe Asus Eee PC 1005HR is pretty much identical to the Eee PC 1005HA apart from the fact that it sports a high-resolution (1366 x 768) display. Peter from Netbooked has his review up of the device and whilst it took time to adjust to the small font-size, Windows can be adjusted to make for a more comfortable experience.

The 1005HR is also quieter over the 1005HA according to Peter. Combine this with a 7-hour battery life, excellent keyboard and multi-gesture touchpad and you have a very capable machine. It’s just a shame it’s only being sold in Japan right now. Click through for the video review. Read more

He also unboxed the Samsung N140 netbook and liked the keyboard, matte display and lightweight chassis. The N140 is similar to the N130, but has a higher capacity battery and stereo speakers. You can check out both videos after the jump. Read more
