The Eee 1002HA is the newest addition to the Asus family. This new netbook is a step up from its prdecessor, the Eee 901 and is a great laptop for use for work at home or on the road.
The Eee 1002HA has a 5400rpm 160GB standard hard drive with only 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The 1002HA also has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 Processor which is great for running apps and programs for your job and it comes with an integrated webcam and Windows XP, Photoshop SEC 690, H.264 and Quake Live. It also has 3 USB ports, a VGA-out, audio in/out, ulticard reader, and an ethernet outport. It also comes with wireless bluetooth and weighs about 2lbs 12ounces. One particular feature that alot of peopel will be happy with is that Asus has integrated its multitouch trackpad which many people seem to like. It has a two finger dragging gesture that will totally replace the loss of your mouse wheel as well as a triple tap acting as a right click. The one thing this computer doesn't have that its predecessor, the Eee 901, is a longer battery life. The Eee 1002HA only has a three-cell battery as opposed to the 901's six cell battery. However the 1002HA does run up to 3 hours on a single charge.
But overall the Asus 1002HA is a great computer. It is very capable of doing anything you would need it to. It is a respectable recomendation to anyone who wants a hard-eorking, kong-lasting netbook and the nice brushed aluminum shell is good to look at too. This new Asus will run you around $430 which isn't a bad price.
