Review Asus Eee PC 1008HA Netbook

Notebookcheck
19 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The design pleases and also the associated interface covers will surely find their fancier. The performance is on the well-known netbook level despite optimised energy efficiency and is added to by the standard range of interface equipment. The keyboard is good, the overall weight low , and the sound emissions are very discreet. The arrangement of interfaces is almost optimal and only lacks a third USB port for massive use of external peripherals.
  • Pros: Great design, Port covers, Good keyboard, Very energy efficient, Predominantly very quiet, Low heat development, The great, simple and slim design. The enclosed neoprene jacket is also fancy and useful.
  • Cons: Below-average display, Sensitive surfaces, Battery permanently built-in, Poor accessibility of components, Stiff touchpad key, A display with antireflective surfaces and improved colour-, contrast- and brightness values. In addition the case finishing could be somewhat less susceptible. Upgraders will miss unproblematic access to the components.

Review Asus Eee PC 1008P Netbook

Notebookcheck
19 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. The increased battery life and at the same time lower power consumption are very positive and the manufacturer's data for the maximum battery runtime from Asus of 13 hours and 28 minutes was surpassed. We've rewarded it with the whole 100 percent for this long battery life in our rating.
  • Pros: Elegant design by Karim Rashid, Robust surfaces, Chiclet keyboard, Good workmanship and stability, Intel Atom N450 processor, Very long battery life, Low power consumption, Good work rate, Price, The very chic and robust wave design by Karim Rashid in extravagant colors, the extremely long battery life and the ergonomic chiclet keyboard.
  • Cons: Average viewing angle stability, Poor display (glare type), Missing multi-format cardreader, Poor loudspeakers, Poor scope of delivery, A better, in particular brighter, display, a few additional connections, such as more USB connections or a multi-format cardreader.

Asus EeePC 1008HA

Tech2
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Nicknamed Seashell, the EeePC 1008 HA is a cut above the previous models, mainly because of its looks and design. It is sleek, sexy, and very stylish. So far netbook manufacturers have paid most of their attention to features and convenience. But with this baby out in the market, people will have all the more reason to grab a netbook. Since the seashell has hardware and features that are common to most netbooks, there isn’t much to speak in this regard.

Asus Eee PC 1008P Seashell-Karim Rashid Collection

Tech2
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Put your glasses on, as the flashy snazziness has begun. This new designer netbook by Asus comes with a tag, rather a name tag of industrial designer Karim Rashid. It’s a netbook made for the premium user, but not necessarily in performance, (we’ll be checking that in the course of this review) but in terms of elite looks and beauty. And yes it comes with the Pinetrail platform inside. Let’s elaborate.

ASUS EeePC 1008HA (Seashell)

PC Magazine
6 April 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.

  • Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell takes the slim profile of a MacBook Air and crosses it with netbook specs and size to come up with the most stylish, efficient ultra portable we've ever had the chance to play with. This is bound to trigger copycat computers, but the only way they'll be able to top this'un is by chopping the price down.
