Asus Eee PC 1008HA – meet the Eee PC Shell

Last week, our netbook–loving hearts were set aflutter by talk of a new Eee PC Shell, a superthin lappie taking direct aim at the Apple MacBook

Weighing in at just 1.1kg and measuring a mere inch deep when shut, the new machine is the sister of the excellent S101. It's set to come with either HSDPA or WiMAX depending on your preference, plus the usual netbook treat of an Intel Atom.

Asus is keeping other details, plus pricing, out of the limelight for now. But they have also confirmed that their awesome S121 Eee PC, spotted at CES in January, will come packing a massive 512GB SSD when it launches later this year.

We're chasing up for more details on this killer new machine, so keep it locked to for more news as we get it. And if you're after a netbook, make sure you read our 5 things you need to know now.
