11in Asus 1101HA Revealed

Make note of Its size, making it not-a-netbook.

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.
