Asus Eee PC 1008HA Netbook


Asus Eee PC 1008HA Netbook

Asus's next netbook might make you look twice. It's sexy, it's white--but it's not a Mac.

It's thin, sleek, and light, and at least one Macworld editor is eyeballing it with interest. Nevertheless, the Asus Eee PC 1008HA netbook is no MacBook. Asus seems to be spitting out new additions to its netbook line faster than I can count. (Who can forget the Asus Eee PC 1000HE, the Asus Eee PC 1000H 80G XP, and the Asus Eee PC T91? It ain't easy, since all three came out in the past six months or so.) Nevertheless, the company's designers continue to find ways to refine their machines. The proof is in this new $420 (as of May 26, 2009) netbook.

  • The good: New slim design; clever hidden ports and connections; thin LED screen.

    The bad: Near the upper end of the Netbook price scale; hidden ports and VGA dongle can take a little effort to access.

    The bottom line: Asus reinvents its iconic Netbook with the slim, attractive Eee PC 1008HA, a bold experiment that largely works.

    What is it: Stylish, lightweight 10-inch netbook

    What we think: Great styling and a relatively light chassis make this netbook a winner
