Default ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell Netbook

With an incredible number of netbooks available on the market, how does one compete? With ASUS and their 1008HA (Seashell), the simple answer is to make not a faster notebook, but a feature-rich netbook with a better design. The 1008HA delivers on both counts, with the best netbook design we've seen to date and other bonuses on the software front.

Great Review,
I love my 1000H, I upgraded to 2 gig, 7 hrs of battery and what is amazing, is the WiFi.
When I was in FL, I had a hotel room that was not suppose to pick up the WiFI that they had there available. ( Certain rooms did and certain rooms did not ) Mine did, this thing is exceptional. In restraunts many7 people inquired as to what it was. Some thought it was a toy, but soon found out it was a full featred computer. At 349.00 USD I feel I made a great investment. And the lineup that Asus offers cater to specific needs in their netbooks.
I'm pleased with mine
