Review Asus Eee PC 1008P Netbook

15 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The elegant Asus Eee PC Seashell 1008P by Karim Rashid could mainly convince us. However there are also a few deductions to be made. The increased battery life and at the same time lower power consumption are very positive and the manufacturer's data for the maximum battery runtime from Asus of 13 hours and 28 minutes was surpassed. We've rewarded it with the whole 100 percent for this long battery life in our rating.
  • Pros: Elegant design by Karim Rashid, Robust surfaces, Chiclet keyboard, Good workmanship and stability, Intel Atom N450 processor, Very long battery life, Low power consumption, Good work rate, Price, The very chic and robust wave design by Karim Rashid in extravagant colors, the extremely long battery life and the ergonomic chiclet keyboard.
  • Cons: Average viewing angle stability, Poor display (glare type), Missing multi-format cardreader, Poor loudspeakers, Poor scope of delivery, A better, in particular brighter, display, a few additional connections, such as more USB connections or a multi-format cardreader.

Asus EeePC 1008HA

7 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Nicknamed Seashell, the EeePC 1008 HA is a cut above the previous models, mainly because of its looks and design. It is sleek, sexy, and very stylish. So far netbook manufacturers have paid most of their attention to features and convenience. But with this baby out in the market, people will have all the more reason to grab a netbook. Since the seashell has hardware and features that are common to most netbooks, there isn’t much to speak in this regard.

ASUS EeePC 1008HA (Seashell)

PC Magazine
6 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The 1008HA is more cosmetically enhanced than the 1000HE, but it had to sacrifice a USB port and the removable battery in order to get there.
  • Pros: Slimmer and sexier design than the 1000HE. Good battery life despite using a two-cell battery.
  • Cons: Non-removable battery. One fewer USB port than its peers. VGA connectivity requires a dongle.

Asus Eee PC 1008P Seashell-Karim Rashid Collection

5 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Put your glasses on, as the flashy snazziness has begun. This new designer netbook by Asus comes with a tag, rather a name tag of industrial designer Karim Rashid. It’s a netbook made for the premium user, but not necessarily in performance, (we’ll be checking that in the course of this review) but in terms of elite looks and beauty. And yes it comes with the Pinetrail platform inside. Let’s elaborate.

Asus 1008P-KR review – Karim Rashid Collection special edition

6 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The 1008P-KR is the first netbook built on the PineTrail platform i get to play with. That’s why i was really excited when i got it. Especially after seeing the design and the fact that they dropped the shiny glossy finish for a more “usable” one. Good news kept coming, with the improved hardware specs , better keyboard and touch-pad.
  • Pros: packs up some nice hardware for a netbook, but overall performance is not that great, very comfortable chiclet style keyboard and nice touchpad, exterior actually looks beautiful, and i expect it to be even better in Black. Plus, it’s not glossy anymore. Also, arm rest and  surface around the touchpad are also now matte and feel quite nice, will be available in 4 different colors
  • Cons: screen is the same as on the 1008HA version, glossy and difficult to use in direct light conditions, battery is small, thus resulting in a poor autonomy (update: Asus ships this with 2 batteries, and this will allow up to 7-9 hours of life, which is way better), it will probably be quite expensive, since it is a special edition signed by a famous designer, Karim Rashid, I really expected more in terms of performances from a new platform, although i knew Intel develope...

Asus Eee PC 1008HA (Windows 7 version) review

23 November 2009
  • Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1008HA with Windows 7 may have more RAM and hard drive space than the Windows XP model. But it gets an hour or two less battery life, which is disappointing, especially since the battery is not user-replaceable. It’s possible that this may be addressed by future software updates, but right now you have a choice to make if you’re interested in this slim and light netbook: Do you want a model with the latest Windows operating system, or do you want one that...
