11.6-inch Asus Eee PC arrives at Newegg


— 11:19 AM on August 5, 2009

Look out: here comes another 11.6" netbook (or laptop, depending on your terminology preferences). We first saw the Eee PC 1101HA at Computex in June, and now, almost exactly two months later, it has quietly appeared in Newegg's listings.

The system costs $429.99 before shipping, and it includes an Atom Z520 processor clocked at 1.33GHz. (That's the chip's default speed, anyway; Acer underclocks the Z520 to 1.2GHz in its Aspire One 751.) Also on the menu for the 1101HA: 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Windows XP Home, and a six-cell lithium-ion battery rated for 11 hours of longevity. Oh, and the 11.6" display has a 1366x768 resolution, of course.

This little bundle weighs in at a scant 3.04 lbs, and its thickness ranges from 0.86" to 1.43". Newegg hasn't put up photos just yet, but the listed model has a black shell. You can view images of the white and black variants (along with specs) on the company's website.

If you're wondering how the 11.6" Aspire One 751 compares, the $379.99 variant of that system has twice the RAM, a bigger hard drive, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and Vista Home Basic. The masses of bundled software don't exactly help out-of-the-box performance, though.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
