Taipei, Taiwan, July 14, 2009 – ASUS has introduced two new Eee PC™ Seashell models that are as abundant in battery life as they are in beauty. Boasting unparalleled battery lives of 11 and 10.5 hours respectively, the Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA enable users to learn, work and play all day.

All-Day Computing
The 1101HA and 1005HA are the most energy-efficient Eee PC™ netbooks yet, thanks to the ASUS-engineered Super Hybrid Engine (SHE), LED-backlit display and Intel® Atom™ processor. These technologies combine to allow the Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA to run all day long, lasting up to 11 and 10.5 hours respectively on a single charge.

Extra-large Keyboard and Multi-touch Trackpad
The Eee PC™ 1101HA and Eee PC™ 1005HA employ a large 92% keyboard with full-sized shift keys for an extremely comfortable typing experience. The large keyboard is complemented by extra-wide palm rests and a seamless touchpad with a dimpled surface that supports multi-touch gestures.
