Product Description

The ultra portable Asus Eee PC 1008HA Seashell weighs only 2.4 lbs and measures a mere one inch thin. Within its slick shell it packs the latest ATOM CPU from Intel, the N280, which offers 667MHz FSB, the fastest in its class. With a 6-hour battery, built-in Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, as well as a 0.3MP webcam and Digital Array Mic, the 1008HA allows you to stay connected wherever you go and do so comfortably. Its 92%-scaled ergonomic keyboard and Multi-Touch touchpad make it a breeze to type and navigate through content. But the feature that truly captures most attention is its innovative design. Inspired by one of nature's most beautiful creations, the seashell, the 1008HA's slick curves and smooth lines offer contemporary style and effortless sophistication.

I've had this netbook for close to a year now and I have not been disappointed. I primarily use my ASUS for browsing the internet, watching movies and managing my library of music, photos and eBooks. For people looking to play graphic-intense PC games, edit digital video and audio or cannot live without a built-in optical drive: this is not the computer for you. The 1008ha-PU17 has a 1.66 GHz processor and 2GB RAM, so while it isn't the fastest machine out there, it still wins in terms of being super lightweight with an aesthetically pleasing design and the functionality to keep the average laptop user entertained.

Battery life is excellent. I previously had a Toshiba Satellite which I could only use for about 2 hours before I needed to plug in the adapter to recharge it. The ASUS does not have this problem as I was able to browse the internet (via my Wi-Fi connection) and watch an entire movie while only burning through a couple hours with at least 3 more to spare. I'd say it has at least 6 hours total of use on the "Balanced" power setting.

There are only a few things I was not pleased with in regards to this netbook. The screen is super glossy making it nearly impossible to use outside on a very sunny day. Also, the speakers are not some of the best even compared to other laptops. At times, I had to turn the volume up to the very maximum just to hear things comfortably. I purchased this particular netbook in white, which looks fantastic, but if you aren't careful it will get scuffed easily.

All in all, no real complaints. I love the 1008HA for all my day to day computer needs. It weighs next to nothing so I take it everywhere. For the price and the functionality, I'd say this netbook is one of the best.

I would like to purchase an ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1008HA-PU17 (1008HA-PU17) netbook, but ASUS will first have to increase the 1008HA-PU17's functionality and utility, as noted in this review.

The battery is permanently built-in to the 1008HA-PU17; I state again that this battery cannot, under any circumstances, be removed by the end user. In other words, I have no way whatsoever to swap another, fully charged replacement battery if the built-in cell dies. This is a deal breaker of a blunder for me; the battery absolutely must be replaceable as it is not uncommon for batteries to crap-out. I am not going to treat my expensive 1008HA-PU17 like a disposable BIC lighter every time the battery craps-out. In addition, if I run out of juice on the road, I want to be able to swap in a newly charged battery. The actual battery life is not 6 hours as advertised, but closer to 3.5 hours. If I turned off Wi-Fi, dimmed the LCD and didn't do very much, I might get the 1008HA-PU17 to last for 4 to 4.5 hours. To increase functionality, I want ASUS to replace the battery and upgrade it to a 6-cell Lithium Ion 63 WHr unit that is found in the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA-PU1X and lasts up to an impressive 10.5 hours.

There is poor accessibility of components in the 1008HA-PU17. The usual covers on the underside of netbooks for reaching the components are non-existent. I would have to remove the entire underside cover or the keyboard in order to reach the exchangeable parts. This is not user-friendly and I would lose my guarantee entitlement of 24 months if I open the sealed compartments. To improve functionality, I want improved accessibility to all components.
