ASUS Eee PC 1000HT Netbook Courts Low-Cost Netbook Market

The new ASUS netbook is a low-cost model being test-marketed in Japan. Called the ASUS Eee PC 1000HT, the new machine is somewhat minimalist and looks a lot like the ASUS Eee PC 1000H minus 802.11n and Bluetooth.

Here are the specs:

  • CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
  • Display: 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
  • Memory: 1GB
  • Storage: 160GB HDD
  • OS: Windows XP Home
  • Connectivity: Ethernet, 802.11b/g WiFi
  • I/O: Mic, Headphone, SDHC card slot, VGA, 3 USB 2.0
  • Battery: 6 cell, 6.4 hours (max)
  • Dimensions: 10.5? x 7.5?  x 1.5?
  • Weight: 3.2 pounds

Japanese consumers are expecting the netbook at 37,800 yen – about $421 US. If you take into account price differences between US and Japanese markets, however, one might reasonably expect the netbook to go for around $300 if you found it in the United States. Not bad for a netbook with a 6-cell battery.

The ASUS keyboards tend to irk typists with their weirdly placed shift keys, but for the rest of us it shouldn’t be impossible to get used to.
