The Eee PC 1000HE is equipped with a high-density battery that, when combined with the Super Hybrid Engine, allows for an industry-leading 9.5 hours of battery life*. Using the Eee PC all-day has never been easier thanks to its bright 10” LED backlit display and new ““chiclet” keyboard that allows for faster and more comfortable typing.

    It looks like Asus really has upped the stakes with the 1000HE. It will be interesting to see how Acer and Lenovo respond and of course the new kid on the Netbook block, Samsung with the N10.

    The N10 was close to being the top of the pile until Asus stepped in with a better machine at $100 cheaper!

    Still, this race can only be good for the consumer.
