I really am excited for the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA. Know why? Because it is set to take on the Acer Aspire One. According to Punch Jump,
The new Asus Eee PC 1000HA will include a 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, Windows XP and a 10-inch LCD for $429.99.
Retailer Amazon.com this month began taking pre-orders for a Ebony SKU and White SKU.
By comparison, the Acer Aspire One includes a 8.9-inch screen, 1.6 Ghz Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 6-cell battery and Windows XP for $399.99.
It is sold in Blue color and White color SKUs.
The Aspire One currently ranks as the No. 1 best-selling notebook at Amazon.com, followed by the Asus Eee PC 1000H at No. 2.
Acer also offers a Linux-equipped model for $329.99.
Dell Inc. in Sept. entered the netbook market with the the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. A Linux-based model starts at $349.
Personally, I’m thinking of getting the 1000HA to replace my 701.
Which will be the better netbook, the Eee or the Aspire One? What do you think?
