Asus' Redesigned Eee PC 1002HA Netbook is Slimmer and Lighter


Forgetting for a moment what's underneath the hood, Asus has officially introduced its redesigned Eee PC 1002HA, a gorgeous looking netbook that first appeared on the web back in October. The sleek new chassis owes its good looks to a brushed black (er, 'Agent Grey') aluminum LCD cover and palm rest in an attempt to bring "a touch of elegance to every day computing" in a lightweight package weighing just 2.6 pounds and measuring 1-inch thick.

On the inside, the familiar Intel Atom N270 processor makes an appearance, along with 1GB of DDR memory and a 160GB hard drive. Storage duties are complimented with another 10GB of hosted online space through Asus' Eee Storage service, free for the first 18 months.

Asus says you can expect up to five hours of unplugged computing time on its custom-made two-cell 4200mAh polymer battery.

The Eee PC 10002HA is available now through the usual outlets with an MSRP set at $499.
