Offers 10+ hour battery life
ASUS has added another member to its lineup of Eee netbookwith the 1005HA Seashell that claims to have a runtime of up to 10.5 hours on its 6-cell battery. According to ASUS, the longevity is due to the Intel Atom N280 in combination with its Super Hybrid Engine and LED backlit display.

That design includes a large keyboard which measures 92% of the size of a standard keyboard and weighs only 2.8 pounds. In addition to the 1.66GHz N280 processor, the Seashell includes 1GB of memory (upgradeable) and a 160GB SATA II hard drive spinning at 5400RPM.
