    The new ASUS Eee PC 1000HA (the model without Bluetooth and 802.11n), specifically the new black model no. EPC1000HA-BLK026X, now has that chiclet keyboard as seen on the 1000HE. There doesn’t seem to a white model equivalent though.
    You can find it at these fine retailers: Amazon, JR, and ZipZoomfly (among others).

    It may be a bit cheaper than buying a HE, but at least now people have a choice between the HE and the HA.

    Chiclet keyboard? How is replacing a normal keyboard with a cheap early 80s erasertip collapsing membrane keyboard good?

    and

    Are what come to my mind when i hear "chiclet keyboard", but maybe that's just because I'm oldschool and remember those types. Heh.

      It's a "chiclet" style keyboard. It's not truely a chiclet keyboard (as far as I'm aware).

      The force needed to depress a keyboard is somewhere between your traditional dome-switch and the scissor type, though I feel it is more like the dome-switch feel than the squishyness of the scissor type.

      This style keyboard actually comes from Sony and people often compare it to the iconic Macbook (Apple actually hired Sony engineers to help design the Macbook for Apple back in the 1990s).
