Asus launched the fashionable Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection

Ever since the popularity of netbooks, it really hasn’t melded well with fashion but ASUS plans to change that with its limited edition Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection which they launched in the country yesterday.


Separating itself from those glossy, black or decal-painted netbooks, the Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection sports a rubbery-texture crocodile-looking hide that looks so good that you don’t want to put it in a bag or a sleeve.

This designer edition netbook is based on the Eee PC Seashell 1008HA that was released last year. It has the same slim form factor and light weight at only 1.145kg. What’s new with the 1008P is the Intel N450 processor, Windows 7 OS and 250GB hard drive.

The Eee PC 1008P also has a 3-cell Li-polymer battery which Asus claims can go for 6 hours on a single charge. More like 4 hours in normal usage which is pretty low considering that it’s already using the Intel N450.

People would want to have this netbook mainly for its style and at P25,900, it’s already a good price IMHO. The Karim Rashid Collection comes in glossy Hot Pink for the ladies or matte Coffe Brown for the gentlemen.

This limited edition Asus netbook is only available in select dealer stores: Octagon ““ Megamall, Complink ““ MOA, Villman ““ North Edsa and Accent Micro in Park Square, Makati.

  • I spotted this online some 2-3 months ago. Now it’s here in the Philippines. I have to have the brown Karim Rashid limited edition.

    Is there a spec and perf review about this?

  • No review yet but I’m guessing performance won’t vary much from the 1008HA. Only downside really is the 3-cell battery.

  • They’d rather go for a 13 inch notebook. We have see some high end Netbooks but the high cost is attributed to the downright sexy looks and not the components. Netbooks mostly cost $299 and anything above that is either for the out of the box looks or for some meager upgrades.
