Thanks Jacinta. I contacted them and he replied:

"I double checked with our Suppliers and they don't have this model
available with Linux yet. However, I have left a message with the
eeePC product manager for
Australia to enquire. I should have an answer for you in the next
couple of days."

I'll update the list as to the status when I find out.

In theory that is possible, in practice it's not as easy. However the
other issue is that the 1000H does not have an SDD drive, while the
1000 does.
