Asus has launched a thin, low weight netbook in the UK dubbed the Eee PC 1008HA Seashell.

The Seashell has a 10in screen and is just 1in thick and weighs in at 2.4 pounds. Under the hood is an Intel Atom N280 processor running at 1.66GHz, 1GB of RAM and 170GB of hybrid storage, including a 160GB hard disk drive.

Connection options run through three flavours of 802.11, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and WiMax.

In order to increase its use as something more than a netbook, the Seashell offers a keyboard that is approximately 93 per cent of full size, and one-touch access to a list of most-used applications.

According to Asus, the 1008HA will have a battery life of around six hours.

It also offers a system restore feature that can take it back to its original factory settings “with ease”, but this is limited to XP users.

The Seashell comes in six colours, adding a shade of bronze to the now traditional black, white, pink, blue and silver.

The Seashell is expected to hit shelves in the UK on 15 May 2009 and will sell for £379.
