Details about Asus's plans for new netbooks have started to emerge and four new mainstream models are worthy of particular attention. These netbooks run between $299 and $429 and are, in Asus's words, their "good, better, best, and elite" models for everyday netbook users.

The first in the series is the Asus Eee PC 1005HA-E, which has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $299. It's the base model of the series, with a "good" array of specifications that will suit consumers interested in a simple, barebones netbook that enhances productivity but remains portable. The 1005HA-E has a 10.1-inch LCD display, an Intel ATOM N270 processor, a 0.3MP webcam, and four hours of battery life coming from a three-cell battery.

The next step up is the Asus Eee PC 1005HA-V, which resembles the 1005HA-E is all respects aside from its battery life and the available shell colors. The 1005HA-V provides a little extra style, allowing consumers to buy it in white, black, pink, or dark blue. It also uses a six-cell battery, for 8.5 hours of battery life.

The "best" model is the Asus Eee PC 1005HA-P, which really diverges from the previous configurations. It uses a six-cell high capacity battery that grants 10.5 hours of life. It's Bluetooth capable. The processor is amped up to a N280 ATOM CPU, and the webcam is brought up to 1.3 megapixels.

The final, "elite," model utilizes an Intel MENLOW 2420 processor, has 11 hours of battery life, and an 11.6-inch LCD display capable of high-definition (720p) resolution.
