Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook Philippine Price Update ! Specs, Photo, Demo Video

Just a Philippine price update for one of the slimmest, best-looking netbooks to date.

From having a price tag of roughly Php 20,000 when it was released in the Philippines, you can now get your 1005HA Seashell Asus eeePC netbook for as low as Php 16,500 (even Php 16,350 after bargaining) at most laptop shops offering the line in Gilmore, QC.

Here are the specs:

Intel® Atom™ N270 1.6GHz /
1.0Gb DDR2-800MHz
160Gb SATA Hard Drive
10in. glossy widescreen
wireless LAN
VGA port
3 USB slots
3-cell Li-ION battery
MicroSoft® Windows® XP Home Operating System

and the hands-on video:

Asus eeePC 1005HA has tapered edges making it resemble a seashell - hence, the name of the line.

    I know. I've decided to ignore him. That guy just doesn't know how to listen.

    Thanks for the updates ttomp13! :) I hope Google search is crawling your site faster now.

  3. No doubt, man.

    Google is sporadically crawling one of my sites, but this has NEVER happened before.

    Usually, articles are indexed within 5 minutes of writing them, for both of my sites.

    I hope the issue is resolved soon, dude.

  4. Update: --->

    Hi Taylor,

    Here is what I know:

    1) I checked my blogger blog and right now the problem still persists. Zero posts were crawled. Only the homepage is being crawled.

    2) Blogger team is aware of the problem since last friday. Google employee siobhanquinn acknowledged it[1].
    2.1) While I dont know for sure, I assume that if this problem is related to google search (and not google blogger only), the blogger team already got in touch with the engineers.

    3) Not all blogger blogs with custom domaind were affected.
    3.1) I guess this may be very bad news for us, as it may take more time to isolate the issue. Not only this, if there are other issues affecting more users, they may be given priority. But again, this only an assumption.

    4) Google employees rarely give any aditional information, nor a prediction about the time it will take to fix an issue. They are not allowed to do so.

    Right now all we can do is to keep each other and both threads (this one and the other, on blogger forums) updated.

    Best of luck!

  5. Thanks for the update, Taylor!

    Search is still having problems crawling this site. Spotty. Skipping entries. Taking a day or so before it crawls what it wants to crawl
