Software and Accessories
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.
