ASUS Eee PC 1000HE Headed Stateside for $399

eeepc100heleadBack at CES we were the first to spot the Eee PC 1000HE with an improved, chiclet keyboard. But now ASUS is ready to bring the new Eee out for the world to purchase. Today ASUS launched a Web site and Facebook group to urge  Eee PC 1000HE seekers to pre-order the new netbook. The $399 system will be available in the coming weeks at,, TigerDirect and more. There is an additional $25 discount on all pre-orders. Beyond the improved keyboard (with the Shift key now placed to the left of the up arrow) the 1000HE boasts the new Intel Atom N280 processor that is predicted to provide higher performance than the previous N270 processor. ASUS is also predicting that its new higher capacity, 8700mAH battery will provide up to 9.5 hours of run time. In addition it has a 160GB hard drive (plus 10GB of online storage), 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth connectivity. We should be receiving our review unit in the coming days so stay tuned for the review, but in the meantime hit the jump for more pictures.

    As of now no preorders are being taken for the 1000HE. The vendors listed on the Asus announcement do not have the HE on their sites, even to preorder.

    You can pre-order thru the Facebook group. There’s even a savings of $25.00 (or actually, “up to $25.00″) if you do it that way. So its really $375 I guess.
