Asus takes Eee PC 1101HA to 11.6 inches

Asus takes Eee PC 1101HA to 11.6 inches




There have been earlier reports of this but until I saw it on the Asus Philippines website, I didn’t believe their 11-inch model in Seashell series will get an underpowered Atom Z520 1.3GHz.

The Eee PC 1101HA still has that signature design of the Seashell series with a glossy finish and thin form factor.


 

Asus Eee PC 1101HA
11.6″ display screen @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Atom Z520 @ 1.33GHz
1GB DDR2 RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
160GB HDD
1.3MP camera

At 1.36kg, it’s still light for its size. That includes a 6-cell battery that Asus claims can last from 9.5 to 11 hours on a single full charge. The only disappointing part is the CPU speed.

The model is not yet officially launched in the Philippines so we don’t have any retail price at the moment. However, we can compare this to the Acer Aspire One AO751 which goes around for Php27,000. Expect the price to be a bit higher than that.

    whoa. . . nice spec sir yuga.
    when will be your contest for the netbook?? i’m kinda excited.

    The processor is just enouh for me since browsing the net ginagawa ko maghap0n, plus it saves batt life. What it lacks is the built in 3g modem.

    With the 11 inch models, I think the line between a “netbook” and a full fledge “laptop” begins to blur. I’m mean seriously, I really don’t see the point of getting an 11 inch netbook, that has a crippled spec that makes it pretty much useless except for surfing and a few multimedia stuff, for 27K when you can get a decent notebook, with respectable performance that allows you to do most task, for just a few bucks more more.

    Netbooks were originally designed to be “cheap/affordable” and extremely portable, but with the 11″ size getting uncomfortably close the the regular 12″ laptop sizes, and a 27K pricetag, this can hardly be defined as a netbook at all.

    The only reason I can see that justifies this “netbook” as a better buy is its battery life, and the weight . But I’d gladly trade a few pounds, and a few hours, for more options and more firepower in my computer. But that’s just my two cents. =)

    wider! wider! make it 14 inches. The keypad is still crowded for 11 inches. 14 inches is just enough.

    gusto ko talaga magkaroon ng ganyan kaya lang wala akong pera…

  6. guyrony says:

    I would still prefer the 1005HA any time of the day.

  7. As price gap between notebooks and netbooks like this one becoming closer, consumers will tend to consider buying a notebook instead. I think netbooks manufacturers should concentrate on making low-end netbook wl of course longer battery life and still ultra portable and make it relative cheaper than an entry level notebook because people use netbooks mostly for internet browsing only, with the current trends we’re having right now i don’t think netbooks will gonna survive.

    good thing i got myself a 900HA while it was still locally available. imho, anything bigger than 10″ shouldn’t be considered a netbook. but that’s just me.

  9. Jinoe says:

    I got this netbook early this month in Singapore at 699SGD. That should be around 21,000-24,000Php maybe. I love the bigger screen. It is still lightweight. Power goes as long as 8 hours for me at full charge for the 6-cell battery. But yes, the speed is comparably slow.

  10. Erin says:

    The netbook monicker is being marketed towards those that uses the low power processors which make long portable computing possible. Price is another thing but 27K is at par value since I got my Wind U100 a year and a half ago at around that price.

    12″ or 13.3″ is the sweet spot for me. Im still undecided as I haven’t seen a 13.3″ yet in the market except for my officemate’s macbook. Anything above 10″ is already an ultraportable (which is another marketing buzzword).

    ciao!

  11. daddy joey says:

    Php 27K or higher is a high price :)

  12. Erin says:

    @daddy joey: not if you are buying the latest top of the line model here in the philippines. :)

    ciao!

  13. Robin Lim says:

    My Lenovo S10 cost me 27K a bit more than a year ago, so I see nothing wrong with top of the line netbooks being priced just south of 30K… but if this thing is not an ION, than it does not seem like a good deal.

  14. daddy joey says:

    @erin, yep. but i just hope it has a faster cpu. :)

  15. griffin357 says:

    wait for the Asus 1201N. it has Ion graphics card, dual core Atom. Almost same price point.

  16. Erin says:

    just forgot to add that I am done with the Atom processor and looking at the CULV (or counterpart) processors to power my next ultraportable(the commander-in-chief willing). :)

    ciao!

  17. laurence says:

    why underpowered??….
    hhmmm….i think…previous seashell models are still better…

  18. Erin says:

    Atom processors (and similar offerings from Via) has always been underpowered related to normal mobile processors. That is what makes them suitable for light and long-term mobile computing. Try more CPU-intensive tasks (number crunching, graphics processing, compilation) and you will hit the limits of the netbook processors.

    ciao!

  19. I’m sure introducing this unique put up towards our stand bys not to mention explaining the idea towards your professor throughout higher education.
