  • Appealing chassis; comfortable keyboard
  • Average battery life; pink version is rather shocking
  • The Eee PC 1008P Seashell Karim Rashid isn't the best netbook Asus has ever made, but, if you want a machine that really stands out from the crowd, it may be right up your street ...

  • Abstract:  While designer Karim Rashid isn't a household name, Asus sings his praises, informing us that his work has appeared in galleries around the world -- all good enough to ensure his signature sits below the keyboard of the company's new netbook.To earn th...

  • A slick and stylish netbook, but you're paying for its looks. You can get a netbook with the same specification and better battery life for less. ...

  • In areas such as screen and keyboard, the Asus Eee PC 1008P remains as weak as its Seashell predecessors. But for its chosen audience, we’re sure this netbook will win hearts in its coral-bling Hot Pink finish. And exceptional battery life is a welcom...

  • On a first look, I kind of like the 1008P-KR from Asus. I like the looks, the feeling and I find that it moves somewhat better on Windows 7 than the other netbooks i tested before with Atom N270/N280 processors (you'll find more details bellow). However...

  • Abstract:  The rounded corners and the glossy surfaces define the ‘Seashell’ style of the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA. The unit is slim and light and very easy to carry. The 10 inch LED-backlight wide display of 1024x600 pixels is one the largest in its category. The devi...

  • The sexiest netbook by far.
  • Expensive for a netbook. It's lost a USB port!
  • The Eee PC was already a design classic, and now the Seashell has added a further string to its bow: sexiness!...
