Asus Eee PC 1008HA "Seashell" Review

0 thumbs up
In terms of extras, you won't find an awful lot included with the Eee PC 1008HA. Within the colorful box, you'll get the netbook itself, an AC power brick, power cable, a few booklets, a driver CD and a rather ho-hum protective sleeve. Not that we're complaining about a sleeve, but those who prefer bags with pockets and the like will still be shopping the markets for one.

Asus offers the Eee PC 1008HA with Windows XP Home and GNU Linux, and our test unit arrived with WinXP. Extra software was scant, with just an application to access EEE Storage, Adobe Reader 8, a 30 day Microsoft Office trial, Skype, Microsoft Works and a Norton Security trial included.

Asus does include its Super Hybrid Engine, which is an application that sits in the System Tray and enables users to easily switch from one power profile to another based on current usage scenarios.  Also, the VGA dongle is included.  It's a small cutout on the bottom of the machine -- you just pop it out, and the VGA adapter is right there.
