Our review partner Digital Trends tested the Asus Eee 1008HA Seashell Netbook and published this review.
Quote from the review: "Strip away the plastic shell, aluminum cladding and Chiclet-style keys, and every netbook boils down to almost exactly the same hardware. They all seem to share about 90 percent of their DNA – which is why many companies are starting to look past the stagnant hardware inside and turning to the outside as a way to stand out.


Asus already joined the party with the fashion-savvy S101, then with the metal-clad 1002HA, and now continues its quest for thin with the 1008HA Seashell. It may not pull anything unusual under the hood, but super-slim dimensions and a sleek shell make it one of the most lust-worthy netbooks we’ve laid eyes on."
