Excerpt: I didn’t know it was that tongue-in-cheek to install wireless internet. The notebook is retailed for 350 dollars I suppose with some expenses on the side if you want to have it upgraded to Windows 7. I had no technical glitches ever, in so far as my history of using this netbook. Thereby, I will recommend this netbook for those seeking a travel-friendly laptop without the techy fuss. This gets a perfect 10.
Excerpt: I am happy with the large storage as it can house all my audio and downloaded files. I do not have to bring along my external drives when I want to work in a public place, one less load off my shoulders. Plus the speakers were loud enough without that tinny sound that is really irritating. Battery life is at about four hours, just enough for a half-day’s work. I would have wanted more, but for it price of Php 24,900, it’s value for my money.
Summary: The best ASUS netbook I have ordered. Love it more then the 1000HE & 1005HA. Wish 1008HA screen was matte (comes with gloss screen). Have never removed the batter in our older 1000HE or 1005HA's.. so the non removable battery in the 1008HA is perfect. Comes with a wicked long power adapter / charger that is really really small. Absolutely love this thing!
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Long Battery Life, Quality Display
Summary: The Asus 1008 HA is ultraportable, nicely designed and does what you expect from a netbook. It makes my older Asus 1002 HA look big. I have gotten the white version of it, since I didn't want fingerprints to be seen on the surface. The only downside of this product is that it is difficult to upgrade, in fact you may lose your warranty if you try to do it yourself.
