Introduced for pre-order on February 2nd 2009, the Eee 1000HE is another 10" netbook from Asus that features an extended battery life. With a much improved keyboard layout, the main improvement found on the 1000HE over the 1000HA is the 9.5 hour battery life with reduced screen brightness and disabled wireless. This is attainable through use of a large 8700mAH battery. The 1000HE also features an updated N280 Atom processor (60MHz faster at 1.66GHz), wireless N standard and Bluetooth. The device is widely available with a MSRP of $399.

This might be the first Asus EEE PC first-gen killer. No one else seems to get the netbook right. They add too much power, bulk, weight, while adding to the price and shortening the battery life. This one seems to have it right: decent power, large enough screen, nice keyboard, proper netbook pricing, wireless N, bluetooth, and long battery life.

I love my original EEE, but this may be better if you want something a little more versatile.
