EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) has conferred its coveted European Netbook 2009–2010 award on ASUS’ Eee PC™ 1008HA Seashell, applauding its slim profile, light weight, large display, impressive processing speed, and effective connectivity. The prominent Mobile Devices panel noted that the Eee PC™ 1008HA Seashell is “very easy to carry”, “has one [of] the largest [LED-backlit displays] in its category”, and is “powered by the Intel Atom N280 processor, the very best in the field”—concluding with a ringing endorsement of the Eee PC™ 1008HA Seashell’s superiority on the form, function and fashion fronts: “If you want to have the most powerful netbook, and the most fashionable one, the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA Seashell is your best choice.” The full write-up can be viewed at www.eisa.eu/awards/mobile.
“When we set about designing the Eee PC™ 1008HA Seashell, we wanted to make a statement both in terms of aesthetics and functionality,” said Samson Hu, Vice President of ASUS’ Eee Business Unit, System Business Group. “We were keen to equip it with the very best features, but remained sensitive to how this would impact the overall form of the device. I think we’ve struck a perfect balance with the Eee PC™ 1008HA Seashell—everything about it just makes sense. Receiving EISA’s European Netbook 2009–2010 award reassures us that we are charting the right course with our design and development efforts.”
