ASUS Adds More Life to Eee PC™ Seashell Series

    New Eee PC™ Seashell Models—1101HA and 1005HA—Enable All-day Computing with Astounding 11 and 10.5 Hours of Battery Life Respectively

    Taipei, Taiwan, July 14, 2009 – ASUS, creator of the netbook and leader in netbook innovation, has introduced two new Eee PC™ Seashell models that are as abundant in battery life as they are in beauty. Boasting unparalleled battery lives of 11* and 10.5* hours respectively, the Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA enable users to learn, work and play all day. Inspired by one of nature’s most beautiful designs—the seashell—and equipped with the best of today’s innovations, these sleek, lightweight and hardy netbooks offer large, crisp screens, excellent connectivity on-the-go, and large storage capacities. The Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA sport 11.6" and 10.1" LED-backlit screens respectively.

    All-Day Computing

    The 1101HA and 1005HA are the most energy-efficient Eee PC™ netbooks yet, thanks to the ASUS-engineered Super Hybrid Engine (SHE), LED-backlit display and Intel® Atom™ processor. These technologies combine to allow the Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA to run all day long, lasting up to 11 and 10.5 hours respectively on a single charge.* Both models also feature user-replaceable batteries and upgradeable RAM slots.

    Extra-large Keyboard and Multi-touch Trackpad

    The Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA employ a large 92% keyboard with full-sized shift keys for an extremely comfortable typing experience. The large keyboard is complemented by extra-wide palm rests and a seamless touchpad with a dimpled surface that supports multi-touch gestures.

    All-New Eee Docking Software

    The 1101HA and 1005HA are the first Eee PC™ netbooks to offer ASUS’ new Eee Docking software, which provides easy access to utilities, software and digital content. It consists of Eee @Vibe, Eee Sharing, Eee Xperience and Eee Tools. Eee @Vibe is a one-stop content repository that gives users convenient access to music, videos, radio stations and much more. Eee Sharing makes it easy to share or sync messages and data with other Eee PC™ netbooks, notebooks, and desktop PCs—even without an Internet connection. Eee Xperience is a suite of applications that enhance the Eee PC’s™ visual and acoustic performance**. Eee Tools comprises useful tools including Parental Control* and Font Resizer. Eee Docking and all of these suites are easily accessed as the software “docks” to the top of the screen and is semi-hidden when not in use.

    Flexible Storage Options

    The Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA boast high-speed 2.5-inch SATA II 160GB hard disk drives, providing more-than-ample storage for music, videos, movies and documents. Both models also come with 10GB of online Eee Storage** that allows users to access their files securely—anytime, anywhere.
