While we are all talking about the rumored Eee PC 1005, which is supposed to be a variant of the upcoming Eee PC 1008HA, our netbook-loving friends and France are already way ahead of us. Asus has just officially launch the Eee PC 1005 together with the 10008HA in France. Interestingly, two variants of the Eee PC 1005 were launched – the 1005HA-H and 1005HA-M.
And the difference between the two Eee PCs? Well not much really except for the the CPU (Atom N270 for the 1005HA-M and Atom N280 for the 1005HA-H), Bluetooth for the 1005HA-H and 6-cell-2800mAH battery which gives up to 10.5 hours usage time. The 1005HA-M could only muster 8 hours of battery life with its 2200mAh battery.
Other than those, both variants are practically the same in terms of features and specs. And yes, both 1005HA models both have removable battery pack.
Price of the Eee PC 1005HA-M is at 299 Euro, while the 1005HA-H will retail for 349 Euro.
