Eee PC 1101HA: 11 inches of plain

It's been at least six hours since we wrote about a netbook, so we thought we'd bring you news of the Eee PC 1101HA -- Asus' largest laptop to date

Some people complain Asus releases too many Eee PCs, but it's not true. The company only announces new ones when the day of the week has a 'y' in its name. Today just happens to be one of those days, so kick back, relax and get a load of the Eee PC 1101HA -- Asus' largest netbook to date.

It's the first Eee laptot (see what we did there? etc) to use an 11.6-inch display, so it's slightly larger than the 10-inch norm. This will put a few people's noses out of joint, but the extra girth means it should have an awesome keyboard -- and the big 1,366x768-pixel screen will appeal to those who watch films in bed and on planes.

Outside, it uses an attractive 'Seashell'-inspired chassis, like the one we saw on the Eee PC 1008HA . Inside, there's an Intel Z530 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and a six-cell battery pack that Asus reckons will last around 9.5 hours. In other words, it looks great and probably works well, but it's basically the same as pretty much every other netbook on the market today.

Launch date and pricing are still TBC, but we reckon it'll ship before the summer's out and will cost in the region of £400. We'll give you more info as we get it.
