ASUS Eee PC S101, S101H, 1002HA Compared (Portable Monkey)

Asus Eee PC Portable Monkey has done a comprehensive comparison involving three Asus Eee PC models that share quite a bit in common. They’ve compared the 10″ Eee PC S101, Eee PC S101H, and the Eee PC 1002HA.

The S101 is Asustek’s high-end netbook/ultraportable, with a much larger capacity battery, and more metal parts (which adds to the price), while the 1002HA has a higher-resolution webcam. As shown, they do have the same keyboards and the S101H and 1002HA share quite a few other things in common.

PM makes the point that the S101H is just the S101 with a hard drive (the S101 has a Solid State Drive – SSD), and at that point the S101H is:

… actually half way between the S101 and the 1002HA. The differences are all so minimal though and don’t amount to much. I would either stick to the 1002HA and save money, or go for complete mobility and battery life with the S101.

The 1002HA has dropped quite a bit in price since it’s launch – it’s down to $379.99 at ZipZoomFly (EPC1002HA-BLK006X). That maybe due in part to the launch of the Eee PC 1000HE.

Portable Monkey makes a great argument for picking up the 1002HA over the S101H, since the whole point of choosing the S101H is for the mobility and battery life.
