Asus EEE pc 1008ha Netbook with Windows 7 Home Premium
19 April 2010
Excerpt: Intuitively, it seems unwise to replace my robust laptop for a small netbook. I decided to downgrade to a netbook because of its portability. Well, I’m not a techie who’s well-versed pertaining to technology-oriented things.
Excerpt: The new Asus Eee PC Seashell is a beautiful netbook released by Asus. It’s part of the EEE line and this time, Asus has taken the time to prettify it. One look at the weave design by Karim Rashid and you will immediately be taken with it.
Conclusion: I’ve mentioned on our pages in the past that I’m not much of a netbook guy. It’s not that I don’t understand their appeal or uses, but rather the fact that I just can’t seem to “get used” to them. I don’t have big hands, but I still manage to fumble over the keyboard. Then there’s the limiting resolution (1024×600), but that’s self-explanatory.
Pros: Superb design and aesthetics., Near-full-sized keyboard., Speedy processor (for a netbook, ~1.70GHz during full load)., 6+ hours of battery-life., Crisp, bright LED-backlit display., 10GB online storage space is a nice touch., Online backup software is useful and works well., Minimal traces of “bloatware”.
Cons: Non-removable battery., Non-upgradable memory., Touchpad a little rough on finger tips after long use., Should include 2GB of RAM, given it’s non-user-upgradable.
Excerpt: I bought the asus Eee PC in 2008 and it was probably one of the best investments I have made, the reason is its durability. Ever since I have had it, it has been in the same condition, even if you think that since it's white then it means it will become yellowish or just get really dirty, It just didn't. I was also surprised by its keyboard that doesn't feel like the best quality, but it still lasts forever.
Summary: This is a nice little netbook, which performs exactly as you would expect. The display is very glossy as is the outer casing, which shows every fingerprint and smear. All in all though it is an attractive package which looks very sleek. Like the covered ports as well it adds to the sleek looks. The one provided by this seller was exactly as described and delivered very quickly.
Summary: What can I say, the ASUS EEE PC 1008H is a fantastic little net book and it looks great too. I received mine in the post today. It feels really well made and (sorry to be girly here) it's really cute! The screen resolution is brill. Initial set up was fast and loading my software via USB was quick too. I ran a burn in tool and other than there being 79 faults on the CD/DVD drive (Ermm mainly I think because IT DOESNT HAVE ONE) it was faultless.
Summary: It is good looks that catch the eye and we've all heard about how form follows function so, shallow as it seems, this netbook gets noticed. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my partner. She was not really a 'computer person' but the look and feel of the case caught her eye and she was sold. It is an arresting design in bronze (don't entertain the pink one!!) and that makes it look and feel special. It is tactile and unusual and that's before you open it.
