"Asus remains ahead of the game,
and the Seashell is the best Eee PC so far."

- T3 Magazine (November 2009)

Impossibly thin and exceptionally stylish, the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell takes the Eee PC Series to dizzying new heights.

With a design inspired by the sleek sculpted shape of a seashell, the 1008HA is no thicker than your finger at just 1" thin and weighs a mere 1.1kg, making it the most powerful and portable Eee PC to date. The 10” display makes working with documents and watching videos a pleasurable experience and also ideally portable so you take it anywhere.

Powered by the new Intel Atom N280 processor and backed by 1GB of RAM the 1008HA has enough performance to handle productivity tasks with ease. It also have 170GB of hybrid storage with a 160GB hard disk drive and 10GB of free online storage which provides ample storage for all you documents, images and date.

Furthermore, the EeePc 1008HA features built-in support for 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1.3 mega pixel integrated webcam so you can keep connected wherever you maybe.
