wow, this is really nice for a netbook, I hope the price is <500.

Netbooks are very popular right now; all around the world as consumers flock to the low cost systems that offer portability at the expense of performance. Still many users are able to do all that they need on a small netbook and the class continues to grow impressively.
ASUS today unveiled some images and scant details on a new Eee netbook called the Eee 1008HA. ASUS is holding back the bulk of the details on the 1008HA, but did offer up a bit of information on the little machine.
ASUS says the netbook is only 1-inch thick and weighs 1.1kg. The computer is painted in pearl white and features a desktop application bar ASUS calls Eee Docking offering one-click access to a suite of software including Eee Sharing and Eee Arena. Eee Sharing promises to make synchronizing the Eee with other computers easier and Eee Arena offers access to thousands of songs, radio stations, games, magazines, and other content.
The keyboard is a 92% scale unit with a properly placed right shift key. Other features include a multi-touch track pad, webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and both 3.75G and WiMAX connectivity. It would be a safe bet to assume that the machine is using the Atom N280, however, ASUS may be using something completely difference since the CPU isn't mentioned. The screen size isnâ€™t mentioned so this may be a larger 12-inch size netbook.
ASUS points out that this is a future product and is not being launched at this time.
