Summary: A slick look, larger keyboard and great stamina mean the Eee PC 1101HA strikes perhaps the best balance yet for anyone who needs a machine to slip in their bag. We'd hesitate to call it a netbook, but it's well worth a look for anyone prone to squinting at Asus's first range of Fisher-Price Eee PCs.
Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1101HA isn’t the fastest Intel Atom computer around. And in fact, it feels kind of sluggish at times, even with the CPU running at top speed. But by allowing users to overclock the processor to run at 1.73GHz, Asus has made the Eee PC 1101HA feel significantly faster than the
Asus Eee PC T91
, which features the same processor and a lower resolution display.
Conclusion: Asus has delivered a complete package with pleasing portability in the Eee PC 1101HA. Despite its excellent battery life it does not belong to the absolute front-runners of the field in this respect, but to be able to work for at least 6 hours away from a mains power supply is still pretty useful.
Pros: Good battery life, Light and compact, Stable and well made, The sleek, elegant design and the comprehensive accessories.
Cons: Over-reflective, dark display, Limited opening angle, Small right shift key, Glossy finish hard to maintain, Not much processing power
Excerpt: Talking about the main juice box now, like I said its ‘fab’ in the looks department, the same holds almost true for the performance part too (yeah, it does lack in a few places). Let me start with the battery… Asus is known for its long battery life and with this one also it just keeps on getting better. It’s got a battery life of 11 hours which is excellent for all day computing.
Excerpt: Sum n substance : Thumbs up :Lightweight, killer looks, long battery life, sturdy build, high resolution screen. Thumbs down :Slightly slower and expensive than the standard netbooks.

Asus EEE PC 1101HA reviewed – good, very good actually, but…
20 August 2009
Conclusion: For a picky guy like me, it’s amazing there weren’t many things i didn’t like about the Asus EEE PC 1101HA . It’s good looking, powerful enough for everyday applications and maybe even a little more , while remaining light and portable. Keyboard is comfortable to use and the bigger screen offers an increased working space. Of course, i for one don’t like the glossy finish, but most of you don’t have a problem with it from what I’ve seen.
Pros: same aspect and build quality of the previous EEE PCs, bigger 11.6″ screen with 1366 x 768 px resolution, Good CPU with fast Over-clocking feature, ergonomic keyboard, 6 cell battery – up to 9 hours tested autonomy, powerful enough to play 1080P movies and run Windows 7 with Aero, very good price tag for these performances, Wi-Fi draft n wireless
Cons: no Bluetooth for this version, but there will be versions of the 1101HA with this feature also, the right part of the keyboard is crowded, with the right shift and the directional keys, the fast overclocking option is not so easy to use (i had problems with it on Windows 7), Some might find the resolution too big for this screen and uncomfortable if used for a longer period of time, touch-pad is kind of uncomfortable
