ASUS Revamps the Best Selling Eee PC 1000HA with New Chiclet Keyboard

-- Available immediately through ASUS authorized resellers, the new Eee PC 1000HA offers a supremely comfortable keyboard and 7-hour battery life for true all-day computing --
FREMONT, CALIFORNIA (April 23, 2009)-ASUS, a world leader in the mobile technologies, has updated its best-selling Eee PC™ 1000HA with an all-new chiclet-style keyboard that improves overall comfort and allows touch-typists to type at full-speed on its 92% keyboard. The chiclet keyboard design improves comfort by separating the keys from one another instead of using an edge-to-edge design that is common on today’s mini notebook and notebook keyboards. The keyboard is also found on the award-winning Eee PC™ 1000HE, which was named Editor’s Choice by Laptop Magazine, Computer Shopper, PC Magazine and PC World Magazine*, as well as Notebookreview.com and Hothardware.com.

Extended Battery Life for All-day Mobile Enjoyment
In addition to its new keyboard, the Eee PC 1000HA has an extended battery life up to 7 hours, thanks to three main ingredients: ASUS’ exclusive Super Hybrid Engine (SHE), an Intel® Atom™ processor, and an LED-backlit display. SHE allows users to make power consumption adjustments to suit their tasks at hand, resulting in a reduction of power expenditure by up to 15%*. The Intel Atom processor powering the Eee PC 1000HA is highly energy efficient, conserving battery power while still providing more-than-ample processing capabilities on-the-go. Finally, the Eee PC 1000HA’s 10-inch LED-backlit WSVGA display utilizes less power than conventional LCD screens, yet is capable of delivering amazing clarity, brightness and comfort for photograph and movie viewing, as well as Internet browsing.

Hybrid Storage Keeps Your Files in the Cloud
In addition to its spacious 160GB of internal storage, the Eee PC 1000HA also includes 10GB of Eee online storage, which is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection so the most important files are available any time, any where. Users can also use it to share files, letting friends and family download files from the Eee online account quickly and easily.

Pricing and Availability
The Eee PC 1000HA is available immediately from leading retailers and E-tailers for an introductory MSRP of $349 USD.

It's funny, typing on a normal sized keyboard notebook for me has always been a challenge, but when I went to the 92% 1000HA keyboard I had absolutely no problem. I have rather large hands too (palm a basketball large).
