ASUS Expands Eee PC Line with High-Capacity Hard Disk Drive Models
Notebooks | Just Announced
Wed 30 Jul 2008



Taipei, Taiwan -- ASUS introduces three SATA hard disk drive models to its groundbreaking Eee PC family. The Eee PC 904HD, Eee PC 1000HD and Eee PC 1000H, all of which sport fast 80GB SATA hard disk drives, enable users to carry more data along with them than previously possible while maintaining the inimitable portability and ease of use now synonymous with the Eee PC line.

Excellent Connectivity for Mobile Computing
The Eee PC 904HD and Eee PC 1000HD feature built-in Wi-Fi 802.11b/g support, while the Eee PC 1000H boasts Wi-Fi 802.11n capabilities – allowing users to enjoy fast and complete connectivity on-the-go. Each of these models also comes preinstalled with a full range of applications designed to enhance the user’s communication and computing experience. Particularly handy is the Eee Connect application* that offers an easy and intuitive way for two or more users to remotely connect to each other’s Eee PCs, thus facilitating troubleshooting should the need arise. Additionally, the availability of each model in either Microsoft Windows or GNU Linux operating systems provides users with the option to select an operating system that suits them best.

Extraordinary Looks to Suit Individual Personalities
The Eee PC 904HD and Eee PC 1000HD are available in Black or White, while the Eee PC 1000H comes in six custom styles created with cutting-edge Infusion casing technology. The latter styles feature motifs that are inlaid within the chassis itself, and as such will not fade with time. The Infusion surface also provides a new level of resilience – providing scratch resistance and a beautiful style while out and about.

Energy-Efficient ASUS Super Hybrid Engine for All-Day Computing
All three models feature the exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine (ASHE) which greatly improves the energy-efficiency of Eee PCs, and lets users enjoy longer battery life per charge – thus eliminating the need to lug power adapters along with them. ASHE also offers a choice of performance and power consumption modes that allow users to make quick and easy adjustments according to their varied needs.

Exciting Multimedia Enjoyment on the Horizon
With the imminent introduction of the Eee Stick** – an innovative wireless gaming accessory that promises to deliver a whole new level of interactivity and fun with PC games, the Eee PC is set to take on new and exciting multimedia entertainment possibilities.
