Asus unveils 1005HA, 1008HA Eee PC Shell


Asus Philippines today unveiled two new models under the Eee PC Shell line — the entry-level Eee PC 1005HA and high-end Eee PC 1008HA. The line is slimmer at the edges and was patterned after the clam shell design.

Actually, the netbook is still around 1-inch at its thickest; only that they slimmed it up around the edges and changed the matte finish with a glossy one. Still weighs over 1kg (2.42lbs).
