ASUS Eee PC 1008HA for US

ASUS today gave the Eee PC 1008HA launch information for the US. The slimmer, MacBook Air-influenced netbook should be ready for pre-orders on May 18th and will command a slight premium over the 1000HE, costing $429. Specifications are familiar with a 1.66GHz Atom N280, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive but earns its Seashell nickname through a tapered design that renders the battery non-removable in return for a thickness below 1 inch and a weight of 2.4 pounds.

The system also comes stock with a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 802.11n Wi-Fi and unique expansion that relies on a mini VGA connector but tucks an adapter in the computer's underside.

    non-removeable battery

    To be fair to the MacBook Air, I hope all those posters out there are ready to b**** for a couple of weeks about the non-removable battery in this model. Or did the world not come to and because the battery in the MBA isn't removable? :)
