The ASUS Eee 1002HA

The looks of a netbook or notebook computer really matter to a lot of people and the ASUS Eee 1002HA is one sexy little machine. If you are used to seeing Eees decked out in shiny plastic in black or white colors, you will be surprised here. The 1002HA is decidedly more upscale than many of the other Eees in ASUS' vast netbook portfolio.

Rather than simply being clad in shiny plastic, ASUS outfitted the 1002HA in a very attractive gray finish with brushed gray aluminum on the lid and palm rest area. The new threads make this one of the sexiest netbooks you can get. If you have been looking for a netbook that looked more like the tool of a professional than something you pulled out of your kid's toy box, the 1002HA is your rig.

Software out of the box

 

When you buy a netbook, it is important to note that you are often buying a basic machine, which means you aren't going to get lots of software. Honestly, that isn't such a bad thing. You don't have to put up with hoards of free Internet trial applications or other bloatware on the 1002HA.

 

The only thing pre-installed was the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine that allows you to control the performance of the machine by setting different modes. Modes are available that optimize performance between several levels or to set the netbook for the longest battery life possible.
