Nope, looks like I'll still be buying an Asus 1005HA-M once it arrives end of July.
10hr battery life sounds great... Reg did a review of the 1000HE and found the quoted battery stat of 9.5hrs would be realistic for general web/document use.
All these recent Asus models have really blown the HP Mini 2140 out of the water as my future netbook of choice!
One thing I don't get... why not use a 7.2k RPM drive?
Only slightly more expensive but same power consumption (in the case of Hitachi)
That's one upgrade I'll be making immediately (as well as upping to 2GB RAM)
Thin ain't a big deal for me so I'll be ignoring this Archos I think
