Asus Eee PC 1008HA Manual appears, non-replaceable battery confirmed

Asus Eee PC 1008HA SeashellThe manual for Asus’ slender Eee PC 1008HA Seashell netbook has appeared on its official support page. The manual confirms that the battery will not be user-replaceable, which means that if you do need the battery changed you will have to send it back to Asus. The 1008HA Seashell should last for around 6 hours according to the company.

Apart from that, there’s not too much we didn’t already know. Asus has made strange port placement decisions, where we find the VGA port under a flap on the bottom of the chassis. To maintain the sexy image, Asus has also placed ports on the left and right side of the chassis under flaps too. However, in another strange move, it has placed the battery and power charge indicators towards the rear of the chassis. This means you’ll have to keep turning the Seashell around to see the lights. The manual can be downloaded here. Check out some pictures after the break.

    I am having trouble with my bluetooth headset connection to my asus eeepc model 1008ha. there is a switch on the top near the power cable that turns on and off the wifi and bluetooth. when the bluetooth headset connects it may work for one minute or so and then i find that the switch (or something) has disconnected the two. generally if i turn off the headset and turn it on again it will be reconnected but one call on skyppe and it usually disconnects. am i missing something? can anyone help?

    thanks, Justis
