Juice and a workable keyboard are the only things that really matter to me in a netbook, and that’s why the Asus Eee 1000HE looks swank. It’s basically the 1000HA except with a chiclet keyboard, 802.11 draft n support, Bluetooth and a toted 9.5 hour battery life. And grok that right shift key! It’s on the correct side of the arrow keys! Dig!
All for $400 with a $25 discount if you join the Eee PC Facebook group. You can pre-order it now, if you’re so inclined, which you may as well do, since there’ll be another netbook to capture your fancy in a week’s time, and another after that, ad infinitim. You’ve got to take the plunge sometime.
Gearlog notes the 1000HE is the first to use Intel’s newer Atom 280 chip, with a slightly faster front side bus and better integrated graphics.
