ASUS Eee PC 1005HA-M Leak
ASUS could be fixing some of the perceived design flaws of the Eee PC 1008HA if a listing proves accurate. The 1005HA-M would have the basic 1.66GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM and 160GB drive as the 1008 but a much larger 6-cell battery that also should be removable, unlike the earlier model. Any cosmetic changes aren't apparent at this stage.
The system is listed as selling for 349 Euros ($475) but may not ship for as much as two months from today, suggesting that an announcement isn't imminent. ASUS is, however, likely to port the 1005HA-M to the US on or before the European availability date. [via Fudzilla]
