Asus EEE pc 1008ha Netbook with Windows 7 Home Premium

jhunie, ReviewStream

  • Excerpt: Intuitively, it seems unwise to replace my robust laptop for a small netbook. I decided to downgrade to a netbook because of its portability. Well, I’m not a techie who’s well-versed pertaining to technology-oriented things.

LaPinay, ReviewStream
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: The new Asus Eee PC Seashell is a beautiful netbook released by Asus. It’s part of the EEE line and this time, Asus has taken the time to prettify it. One look at the weave design by Karim Rashid and you will immediately be taken with it.

User Review

Rob Williams, Techgage
29 June 2009
  • Conclusion: I’ve mentioned on our pages in the past that I’m not much of a netbook guy. It’s not that I don’t understand their appeal or uses, but rather the fact that I just can’t seem to “get used” to them. I don’t have big hands, but I still manage to fumble over the keyboard. Then there’s the limiting resolution (1024×600), but that’s self-explanatory.
  • Pros: Superb design and aesthetics., Near-full-sized keyboard., Speedy processor (for a netbook, ~1.70GHz during full load)., 6+ hours of battery-life., Crisp, bright LED-backlit display., 10GB online storage space is a nice touch., Online backup software is useful and works well., Minimal traces of “bloatware”.
  • Cons: Non-removable battery., Non-upgradable memory., Touchpad a little rough on finger tips after long use., Should include 2GB of RAM, given it’s non-user-upgradable.

Handy little workhorse!

Mr. J. Archer, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this handy little netbook, removed the Windows install and replaced with a Linux distro. It's now a perfect tool for taking notes and minutes at meetings and is great for on-the-move programming. Any time I have five minutes to spare, I pop it out and add a few lines to my program! The battery life is great for this and due to my Linux distro's compatibility with the wireless modem I've never had a trouble with the wireless networking.

Started well but the performance then deteriorated

  • Summary: Started well but the performance then deteriorated and finally the screen gave up the ghost. Disappointingly, I could not get that fixed cheaply.

great netbook, great deal.

QuinDogg, Dooyoo
18 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought the asus Eee PC in 2008 and it was probably one of the best investments I have made, the reason is its durability. Ever since I have had it, it has been in the same condition, even if you think that since it's white then it means it will become yellowish or just get really dirty, It just didn't. I was also surprised by its keyboard that doesn't feel like the best quality, but it still lasts forever.

does what it says on the tin

  • Summary: So its not the most up to date product, but it does what it says on the tin. Installed with XP rather than Windows 7 starter means that it runs legacy programs with ease. Cheap as well.

Nice little netbook

tifoxi, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: This is a nice little netbook, which performs exactly as you would expect. The display is very glossy as is the outer casing, which shows every fingerprint and smear. All in all though it is an attractive package which looks very sleek. Like the covered ports as well it adds to the sleek looks. The one provided by this seller was exactly as described and delivered very quickly.

Eeeee By Eck.. It's good

D. Pendlebury "Reptile Enthusiast", Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: What can I say, the ASUS EEE PC 1008H is a fantastic little net book and it looks great too. I received mine in the post today. It feels really well made and (sorry to be girly here) it's really cute! The screen resolution is brill. Initial set up was fast and loading my software via USB was quick too. I ran a burn in tool and other than there being 79 faults on the CD/DVD drive (Ermm mainly I think because IT DOESNT HAVE ONE) it was faultless.
