Yes, we really do need another one.
What kind of week would it be if there wasn’t yet another Asus Eee PC SKU here to temp us to part with our cash. The latest offering is called the Eee PC 1002HA and its purpose seems to be bringing the S101 styling down to a more reasonable price point – we certainly won’t complain about that.
Specs, then, according to French site blogeee.net, are unsurprising with 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive (hence the ‘H’ in the name) as well as a two cell (really?) 4200mAh battery. The chassis is exactly the same as the S101, so there’s nothing to report on here.
In fact the only change seems to be the reported reduction in battery capacity move from SSD to mechanical storage, and a reduction in price to suit. Supposedly in France the 1000HA will cost some -449 (~£359) some £90 less than the S101. It’s just a shame that with a 2 cell battery the 1000HA isn’t exactly going last long away from a socket.
