ASUS Eee PC 1005HA gets photos, sister model

ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Photos

ASUS' Eee PC 1005HA-M has both been confirmed today through a set of photos as well as news of a second model. As promised, the 1005HA is a close relative of the 1008HA and has the same "seashell" design, albeit here with a black option and slightly thicker; it uses a full-size VGA port instead of the mini port used on the 1008. The replaceable battery and most other ergonomic traits will remain intact.

However, the new details correct specifications and suggest that the 1005HA-M will be more modestly equipped and serve as a budget model: it should have a standard 1.6GHz Atom N270 rather than the faster 1.66GHz N280 but should keep the 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive along with a newly described 8-hour battery. In its place, a more advanced model known as the 1005HA-H should have the 1.66GHz chip along with a 10-hour battery and a more vivid display.

In France, both are due in July and should cost significantly less than the 1008HA; the 1005HA-M will start the line at 299 Euros ($406) with the HA-H boosting that price to 349 Euros ($474). US versions of one or both are likely and, given tendencies in pricing, will likely cost less. [via Engadget]
