Introduced soon after the launch of the 1008HA, the 1005HA is a similar netbook device which consists of two distinct models: the 1005HA-M and the 1005HA-H. Based on the same MacBook Air-esque body as the 1008HA, the 1005HA is slightly thicker, allowing for access to the ports not found on the 1008HA. Similarly, it eliminates the other major annoyance of the 1008HA model, its non user-replacable battery issue. Replacing the lackluster 5-hour battery on the 1008HA, the 1005HA includes longer lasting 10 or 8-hour batteries, which also can be replaced. The device models will also cost somewhat less than the 1008HA. Their differences will be highlighted below:
Display: the only difference between the two models is that the 1005HA-H will feature the same glossy display as the 1008HA. The 1005HA-M will feature a non-reflective matte screen.
Processor: The 1005HA-H will feature the latest N280 (1.66GHz) while the 1005HA-M will feature the older N270 (1.6Ghz)
Connectivity: The 1005HA-H will feature Bluetooth, whereas the 1005HA-M will not.
Battery: The 1005HA-H will feature a 6-cell 2800mAh battery rated for 10 hours, whereas the 1005HA-M will feature a 6-cell 2200mAh battery rated for 8.
Price: The 1005HA-H will be priced slightly higher than the 1005HA-M, both will be slightly cheaper than the 1008HA.
