ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell Launches in North America with an Ultra Slim and Stylish Design

-- The ultimate travel companion is now available for pre-order --

FREMONT, CALIFORNIA (May 18, 2009) - ASUS, the innovator that revolutionized the mobile computing industry with its Eee Family, today announces the availability of the long-awaited Eee PC 1008HA Seashell in North America. ASUS has taken one of nature’s most beautiful designs and combined it with the best of today’s innovations to provide consumers with the most stylish Eee PC yet. The Eee PC 1008HA Seashell sold out immediately at its debut in other regions like the UK and Taiwan.

Weighing just 2.4lbs, the Eee PC Seashell is a highly portable companion that is equipped with a 10.1-inch display, an ergonomically designed keyboard, an intelligent energy management system and an intuitive multi-touch touch-pad. The Eee PC 1008HA Seashell aims to provide consumers with the best mobile computing experience, wherever their journeys take them.

Elegantly Beautiful Seashell-inspired Design
With a design inspired by a seashell, the Eee PC Seashell is enveloped in an opalescent glossy exterior—created using In-Mold Roller technology—that is not only a head-turner wherever it goes, but also serves as a protective shell providing scratch resistance for day-to-day durability. Like the light sprinkling of fine sand on the exterior of a seashell, the lid is graced with tiny reflective specks which glisten in the light, adding the crowning touches to an already exquisite design.

Designed for Mobility and Long Computing Hours
The ASUS-engineered Super Hybrid Engine (S.H.E) provides the Eee PC Seashell with up to 6 hours of battery life. S.H.E. intelligently monitors the programs being used and deploys just the right amount of power required, all the while conserving power by constantly making adjustments between performance and power.

The ASUS Eee PC Seashell is available immediately for pre-order. Please
