Asus 1001P review – huge battery life for an affordable price
19 May 2012
Conclusion: As you can see from the pros and cons above, the 1001P is a mix-up of good and not so good parts. It’s solid built, offering all the basic stuff. Thus, it would be perfect for a kid, an older person or if you need a portable device for harsher conditions.
Pros: offers the new PineTrail platform with N450 processor, GMA3150 graphics and 1 GB of RAM (upgradeable to 2), comes with a 6 Cell battery that can provide up to 11 hours of life on paper (around 7-8 in practice), build quality is very good, has the fancy Seashell shape, though is no longer a glossy...
Cons: connectivity is pretty poor, as there’s only Wi-fi 802.11 b/g, no fast N wireless and no Bluetooth or 3G options, the regular flat keyboard is decent, but not as good as the chiclet one on the more expensive Asus 1005PE netbook, storage space is poor, only 160 GB, but you also get the 500GB EEE S...
Summary: There are good reasons the Asus Eee PC 1001P is cheaper than the Eee PC 1005PE. The battery life isn’t as good and it doesn’t have 802.11n WiFi. But honestly. That’s about it. If those features don’t matter to you, the Eee PC 1001P is a very good netbook for the money.
Conclusion: The Asus Eee 1001P is an interesting product in that it seems to undermine the bread and butter of the Eee lineup—the 1005PE. The 1001P uses the same 1005 chassis, has identical hardware specs, a matte textured case that doesn't pick up fingerprints, and a better non-reflective display, all while...
Excerpt: Constant companion Asus churns out countless Eee PC models, but the 1001P stands out from the crowd. Its matt display, matt surfaces and low price of €249 are enough to make the competition weep. The netbook uses the latest Pine Trail platform, and just runs and runs.
Pros: Very good battery life, Matt screen, Robust case, Quiet and cool, That they had the courage to use a matt material rather than a high-gloss one.
Excerpt: ASUS Eee PC 1001PX — небольшой 10-дюймовый нетбук, выполненный в традиционном для ASUS дизайне Seashell (морская раковина). Плавные линии корпуса с закругленными углами действительно напоминают ракушку. Нетбуки выпускаются в белом, черном или синем цветах.
Conclusion: ASUS Eee PC 1001PX – нетбук в практичном матовом корпусе, с прекрасной эргономикой по весьма приемлемой цене. Non-Glare дисплей, продолжительное время автономной работы, удобные устройства ввода информации – все это неоспоримые достоинства нетбука. Но не лишена модель и недостатков.
