Conclusion: The Asus Eee PC 1005PE based on Intel's new Pine Trail range with an Intel Atom N450 processor, whereas the Intel GMA 3150 graphic and NM10 chip set is integrated in the processor, was majorly impressive in our test .
Pros: Elegant Design, Chiclet keyboard, Price, Good workmanship and stability, Intel Atom N450 processor, Long battery life, Low power consumption, Matt display, Good operating velocity, The elegant and still timeless design that is now also available in several colors, the new chiclet keyboard, the go...
Cons: Display hinges look small and instable, Average viewing angle stability, Low brightness, Missing multi-format cardreader, No HDMI-out, Poor loudspeakers, An HDMI-out, better stereo loudspeakers i.e. from Altec Lansing, and a multi-format cardreader capable of reading more than SD (SDHC) and MMC.
Summary: The Eee PC 1005P is pretty much identical to its Eee PC 1005PE sibling, but sports a smaller hard drive and is slightly less expensive. It's still a fabulous piece of kit, though, and will appeal to anyone requiring a comfortable netbook with good stamina away from the mains
Pros: Long battery life; comfortable keyboard.
Cons: Offers the same mediocre performance as most netbooks.
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.
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. The low price for a feature-rich (if one can say that about a netbook) machine, fantastic keyboard, fast performance, good driver support and on-board utilities make the 10005HA-P a top...
Pros: Great price, faster CPU and wireless., Great features for the price, attractive, solid external build, fast and power-frugal Intel Atom N280 and WiFi 802.11n.
Cons: Difficult to upgrade hard drive., It's nasty business upgrading the hard drive. WiFi 802.11n is 2.4GHz-only, not great if you're running a dual band WiFi router.
Summary: You have a lot of options when it comes to buying a netbook these days. All the major players are getting involved and they all seem to offer similar features at similar price points. You could look to Dell, Acer, HP,
, and so many others.
Pros: A premium feel for an affordable price, Respectable specs and performance for the niche, Able to handle Ustream live video streaming, Impressive 10.5-hour battery life
Cons: Why did you take away my chiclet keyboard?, What's up with this bumpy trackpad?, Not as thin as "Seashell" should be, No real innovation or game-changing features
Summary: An attractive design, comfortable keyboard with appropriately placed keys, and almost nine hours of runtime make the ASUS' Eee PC 1005HA the most well rounded Eee PC to date. And at $389, it's also one of the most affordable netbooks with its feature set.
Excerpt: When Asus created the Eee PC 1005HA , they made a laptop that absolutely would not stop. The manufacturer claims the 1005HA has an 8.5-hour battery life. Normally such claims fall short of reality, even during our relatively light-use battery life test, which simulates scrolling up and down a web...
Excerpt: Asus is one of the leading runners in this crazy race of netbooks, and also one of the first adopters of the Pinetrail platform released earlier this year. Today we have a model for which a detailed review hasn't been done globally, a brand new shiny little netbook called the EeePC -1005P.
