At A Glance

Asus keeps iterating Eee PC netbooks, but at least the 1008HA comes with smart design choices (plus a great battery life.)

Manufacturer’s Description

Seemingly crafted by nature itself, the Eee PC 1008HA-PU1X-WT Seashell Netbook draws its inspiration from seashells and its opalescent and glossy exterior is crafted by the innovative in-Mold Roller technology. It´s so light and compact, you can take it anywhere with you.
