Asus slips out latest Eee netbook
The 10in 1002H revealed
Asus’ Eee PC netbook line has expanded once again with the online launch of the 1002H model.
Asus' Eee 1002H: fitted with the latest Atom
The 10in, 1024 x 600 machine has Intel’s 1.66GHz N280 Atom processor inside and has been fitted with a 160GB hard drive. The internal storage comes in addition to the 10GB of online “Eee storage” that Asus also chucks in.
A single gigabyte of DDR 2 memory is fitted into the latest Eee machine, which measures 264 x 181 x 28mm and weighs in at around 1200g. The 1002H has a ‘chiclet’ style keyboard, as seen on the 1000HE – reviewed here, and a MacBook Air-like multi-touch trackpad.
Battery life extends to five hours
Web access comes courtesy of integrated Wi-Fi 802.11n, while Bluetooth 2.0 is also included for short-range data transfers. Speaking of data portability, the machine’s also fitted with a multi-format memory card reader.
You’ll find three USB 2.0 ports on the 1002H, a single VGA port, two audio jacks and a 1.3Mp webcam integrated into the lid.
Asus claimed the 1002H’s battery life will hold out for up to five hours – much less time than the nine-and-a-half hours that the battery in the 1000HE model can supposedly last for.
Multi-touch pad and a 1.3Mp webcam
An availability date or price hasn’t been given, but you’ll have the choice of “Pearl White”, pink or black body colours whenever the 1002H’s released. ®
