LAPTOP Magazine
21 December 2009
  • Summary: In the Eee PC 1005PE-P, ASUS has improved upon its best netbook in multiple ways. For roughly the same price as the earlier version, you're getting a larger hard drive, a sturdier keyboard, over 100 minutes of additional runtime, and more robust software.

14 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Take the Eee PC 1005HA-P for a test drive and it's easy to understand why ASUS is still at the top of the market.

Notebookcheck
31 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Little Giant Nomad? Asus has a 10.1 inch size notebook in its range, which should especially convince with its long battery life of up to 8.5 hours - The Eee PC 1005HA-M. We have touched base with the mite and clarified the question: What does the 1005HA-M have to offer aside from mobility?
  • Pros: Good operating performance, Chic design, Good display, Low surface temperatures, Long battery life, Low system noise in battery mode, The fast processing speed, the chic design, the perfect workmanship and the good display.
  • Cons: ... Fairly loud system noise under load in mains, CPU heats up fast, Poor loudspeakers, A cardreader capable of a few more formats and an HDMI connection for a better image quality on external monitors. Aside from that better loudspeakers.
