ASUS launched the new U-Series and Eee PC products just a few days back, the event was held at The Terrace, The Curve.
The product line-up for today’s event were
Eee PC 1008HA ‘Seashell’
Impossibly thin and exceptionally stylish, the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA ‘Seashell’ takes the Eee PC Series to dizzying new heights. With a design inspired by the sleek sculpted shape of a seashell, the 1008HA is no thicker than your finger and weighs a mere 1.1kg, making it the most powerful and portable Eee PC to date.
Both aesthetically pleasing and boasting an equally stunning performance, the new ASUS U20A promises an exquisitely crafted, thin and lightweight notebook that takes away nothing in terms of functionality. Powered by an IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢2 Duo processor for multitasking performance, they are also accessories for the image conscious, those who assert their own individuality and appreciate the finer things in life.

Look ASUS and organizers, thank you for the press release and other information but you know what – it’s damn odd to say “Please visit http://my.asus.com/ for more information.” when there’s no information there!
I spent like 15 minutes or so doing some search, and I had to browse through loads of other sites to finally found the links to those products. And those details were found on the UK and CA (CA refers to Canada) sites! 🙁
I mean really, where’s the planning?
Fine, there’s the PR document file but I think that with websites and all, furthermore with “Please visit http://my.asus.com/ for more information.” stated – I believe it’s much better linking to an existing resource than to get readers to download the documents. Whether or not the document is there, my point is that the site should have the details if you are telling people to visit it for details.
This was the place, dim and badly ventilated. I was told that there was an air-conditioning malfunction.
And the crowd, mostly standing. If not, then the rest are probably sitting around or behind the bar.

Seriously, I have no idea why events these days tend to have entertainers. This it’s the 3rd event in 2 months I attended that had someone performing something.

The ASUS booth.
I thought I’d snap this just for fun – I think this is probably the item in the event that everyone practically didn’t notice. 🙂 It’s was a decoration on the registration counter.
Looks like netbooks and slim notebooks are the trend. I’m sure you would’ve noticed that in my previous event reports. 🙂
I personally love the Eee PC range. Currently with me is the Eee PC 1002HA (yes, review coming out soon) and from what I see is that the Seashell has improved the keyboard layout and I’m pretty looking forward to try it out too.
No comments on the U series yet, other than being obvious that it’s a sleek-looker.
