Asus’s 1002HA went all official today. It’s available from Amazon for $500.

Often basic in form, Asus’s EeePC wasn’t known for designer swish until recently. The noticeably fancy looks of its latest entrant combines the specs of the 1000HA with the stylings of the high-end S101, and also keeps most of its $700 price tag.

An inch thick and cast in aluminum, its been compared to the Vaio T-series and other more expensive subnotebooks. In other respects, it’s a standard enough model, with 1GB of RAM, a 10″ 1024×600 display, 1.6GHz Atom CPU, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, bluetooth, WiFi-g, memory card reader and a 92% keyboard. It’s offered with a 160GB hard drive and your choice of Windows XP or Linux.

The weak-ish spot is the 4200mAh battery. The 1000 series, however, has ample aftermarket options.

We’ve got one of these in and will have a review up soon.

    Looks great. So why exactly didn’t they include a SIM slot and HSPA? I don’t want any stupid USB dongle sticking out of my sleek little netbook.
