ASUS EeePC 1008HA (Seashell)

PC Magazine
22 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The 1008HA is more cosmetically enhanced than the 1000HE, but it had to sacrifice a USB port and the removable battery in order to get there.
  • Pros: Slimmer and sexier design than the 1000HE. Good battery life despite using a two-cell battery.
  • Cons: Non-removable battery. One fewer USB port than its peers. VGA connectivity requires a dongle.

Review Asus Eee PC 1008P Netbook

15 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The elegant Asus Eee PC Seashell 1008P by Karim Rashid could mainly convince us. However there are also a few deductions to be made.

Asus 1008P-KR review – Karim Rashid Collection special edition

6 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The 1008P-KR is the first netbook built on the PineTrail platform i get to play with. That’s why i was really excited when i got it. Especially after seeing the design and the fact that they dropped the shiny glossy finish for a more “usable” one.
  • Pros: packs up some nice hardware for a netbook, but overall performance is not that great, very comfortable chiclet style keyboard and nice touchpad, exterior actually looks beautiful, and i expect it to be even better in Black. Plus, it’s not glossy anymore. Also, arm rest and  surface around the tou...
  • Cons: screen is the same as on the 1008HA version, glossy and difficult to use in direct light conditions, battery is small, thus resulting in a poor autonomy (update: Asus ships this with 2 batteries, and this will allow up to 7-9 hours of life, which is way better), it will probably be quite expensiv...

Asus Eee PC 1008HA (Windows 7 version) review

23 November 2009
  • Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1008HA with Windows 7 may have more RAM and hard drive space than the Windows XP model. But it gets an hour or two less battery life, which is disappointing, especially since the battery is not user-replaceable.

ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell (Windows 7) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
30 October 2009
  • Excerpt: When the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell first launched, it impressed us with its thin design and above-average performance. Now updated with Windows 7 Home Premium, a larger 320GB hard drive, twice the RAM, and a suite of ASUS-branded extras, the 1008HA is still a svelte and stylish netbook.

Asus Eee 1008HA Seashell Review

27 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Seashell draws looks from people who don’t even know what a netbook is. The Seashell proves that netbooks don’t just have to be cheap, they can be lust worthy, too. Asus may have copped the original design from Apple, but it also paid close attention to execution while translating it to netbook...
  • Pros: Thin, lightweight design; functional keyboard and multi-touch-capable trackpad; minimal preinstalled clutter; respectable netbook performance
  • Cons: Needs hard-to-find drivers to enable true multi-touch; non-removable battery; deeply recessed ports
