ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Seashell Netbook Review


Introduction, Specs & Bundle

ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Seashell

We recently showed you a preview of the ASUS Eee PC HA1005 PU1X Seashell Netbook, and we were impressed with ASUS’s use of space and the small upgrades they made. With today’s economy, these netbooks are the way to go as far as budget computers go, and the Eee PC Seashell certainly has a lot of promise! Now that we have had it on our testbench for over a week, did it rise up to meet or surpass our expectations? Pretty soon we’ll see the 1005HA compared to the ASUS 1000HE, N10Jc, and an MSI Wind U100! First, though, let’s recap what this netbook is all about…

ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Seashell Box

The box that the EeePC 1005HA-PU1X (Seashell) comes in has a picture of the netbook lying in sand next to a seashell, which goes along with the theme. When I first looked at the box, I thought the seashell was a wireless mouse, which would have been unique to have a seashell-shaped mouse to go along with the Seashell netbook…
