FUD Zilla spotted some retailers are already listing the Eee PC 1005HA-M Seashell netbook, this model will feature a replaceable 6-cell li-polymer battery while the current Eee PC 1008 model has a built-in 4-cell battery. The Eee PC 1005 should be available within two months for around 350-400EUR.
Due to the bigger power pack, the 1005 weighs 1.4kg, 300g more than the 1008HA, but the rest of the spec stays the same: Atom N280, 1GB, 160GB and 10-inch 1,024x600. Best of all, the Eee PC 1005HA-M is listed at as low as €349, although most retailers are listing it at just under €400. This means it should cost you just as much as the 1008HA, and it could even end up a bit cheaper.
