ASUS EeePC 1101HA:An Extra Wide Netbook

It's no secret that Intel and Microsoft have a firm grip on what a netbook may or may not use in terms of features and parts; hence the many
lookalikes in this pervasive category. But there are a handful of them that are considered exceptions to the rules. The ASUS EeePC 1101HA is one of maybe three netbooks that use an 11.6-inch widescreen and a higher resolution (1,366-by-768). In exchange for veering from the "guidelines,"
however, the IIOIHA had to settle for a slower Atom processor and a high price for a netbook. Still, it ranks right up there with some of the best oversized netbooks.

The 1101HA has a black lid that is a magnet for smudges and fingerprints, but it is also sleek and lightweight at 11.3 by 7.7 by 1 inches (HWD) and 3 pounds, managing to hide the bulk of the 6-celt battery. This netbook
loses points, however, for having an only 92 percent keyboard and sticky mouse keys.It scores points for including a Broadcom 802.11n Wi-Fi chip, a rarity among netbooks.

The 1101HA's 1.33-GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor isn't as fast as the 1.67-GHz N280 processors found in the ASUS 1000HE, Toshiba NB205, and HP 5101, but the Super Hybrid Enginer software lets you overclock it to 1.83 GHz. Being restricted to 1GB of memory and Intel integrated graphics didn't help the 1101HA's performance scores much. But it did deliver a good score on MobileMark 2007—6 hours 50 minutes. This is a top-tier oversize netbook, but the Acer A0751h is a better buy.
