Overall comparison with its predecessor (1000HE)
1000HE has done very great job in the market. Its battery charge time was totally conquer with
9.5 hours. 1008HA is outmatched in that performance. What 1008HA advantage is its weight that weigh only 2.4 pound which is more slimmer and more light than 1000HE.
For me I would not trade about $20 for slimmer and lighter,but less efficient netbook. However, if you like the style or design I think 1008HA will be a better choice.
