11in Asus 1101HA Revealed

Despite the fact that anything bigger then 10.xin is - for what feels like the millionth time - not a netbook, Asus has just such a system ready for launch. It's called the Eee PC 1101HA and it packs an 11.6in display.

The 1101HA shares a similar aesthetic to the 'seashell' Eee PC, although obviously on a larger scale thanks to its larger display. That 11.6in, LED-backlit panel will have a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution; one benefit of the not-a-netbook size.

Inside is a 1.33GHz Atom Z530 CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. Given those specs, it's hardly surprising that Windows XP will be pre-installed. Also unsurprisingly, for an Eee PC, the touchpad is of the multi-touch variety.

Ethernet, a trio of USB ports and Draft-N wireless sit alongside an SDHC card reader and a VGA output. With its six-cell battery the Eee PC 1101HA weighs in at 1.4Kg.

The Eee PC 1101HA should launch later this month and in Europe will cost €399 (~£340) which leads me to suspect it will push towards £400 in the UK.

Why on Earth is it so thick? It's carrying lower-power components than the 10" Seashell, and is wider and deeper, so surely it should be thinner!

I notice it has the old-style Eee keyboard. Why would the reintroduce this?

This seems like a very strange laptop/netbook from Asus. Definitely some questionable design decisions.

Why would you pay £400 for a netbook/low spec notebook, when you can get a proper notebook for the same price!?

@Ash: Because you can't get a 1.4kg, 12", 6 hour battery life 'proper notebook' for this price.

Interestingly all the shots of the lid I have seen of this notebook do not sport the eee logo but the standard asus one. Can anyone work this out?

Promising screen size and resolution followed by Vista basic, 1GB RAM, 1.33Ghz Atom and £400 selling price.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Quick correction - Z530 is the 1.6ghz processor is it not? You have it as the 1.33ghz (which is the Z520).
