Summary: 1015PX = R051PX? Asus unleashes another netbook onto the market with the proven seashell case. The 1015PX admittedly seems to be of identical construction to the R051PX.
Pros: Usual Asus quality, The Seashell design still looks good, Chiclet keyboard and touchpad, Quiet, Very cool, Long battery life, Matte display, Alongside the smart look, the long battery life of the netbook is fantastic.
Cons: Expandability, Poor performance, No Bluetooth, Poor speakers, Low-contrast display, extremely high black levels, A USB 3.0 connection would have suited the Eee PC 1015PX well.
Excerpt: It's not a secret: ASUS likes to roll out many ( and we mean many! ) variations of the same laptop. However, while most of the time the differences between the various model numbers -- the PEs, PNs, UCs, UFs, etc. -- usually don't result in much, the $430 1015PN happens to be quite a system in comparison to the many other 1015 or 1215 models roaming the universe.
Pros: Bright, matte display, New dual-core Atom netbook processor, Speedy NVIDIA Ion graphics
Cons: Must reboot to switch graphics card, Lots of preloaded software, Gets warmer than other netbooks
Asus EEE PC 1015PX review – solid in every possible way
11 August 2011
Summary: The Asus 1015PX is, now in 2011, the best ultrabook money can buy. It's fast for its class, it beautiful and sturdy and packs all the features you'll need on such a small computer, alongside 7+ hours of life on a single charge.
Summary: AMD power? Asus is constantly increasing its Eee PC range. Now the Taiwanese company has also ventured a try basing its smallest series' member on AMD. The 10 inch netbook is available with the entry level APUs, AMD C-30 or C-50 including the incorporated AMD Radeon HD 6250 for the graphics unit (DirectX 11). Price: starts at 250 euros. Is the attempt worth it or should you continue to rely on Intel netbooks?
Pros: High-end workmanship, Strong graphics performance, Low temperature development, USB 3.0 included, Quiet operating noise, Matt display, The familiar Eee PC quality with strong GPU performance.
Cons: Weak processor performance, Only average battery runtime, Small scope of supplies, A better battery performance would even increase the Eee PC 1015B value.
Summary: The ASUS Eee PC 1015B proves that AMD can play in the netbook space, and this machine certainly benchmarks better in the graphics department than most Intel Atom-powered machines. However, for just $20 more you can get the 1015PEM, which offers a faster dual-core processor and two more hours of battery life. This $279 netbook is worth a look, but it's not the best value.
Pros: Stylish design, Good battery life, Better graphics performance than typical netbook
Cons: Slower CPU than dual-core Atom, Runs warm, Small right Shift key
Excerpt: The Asus 1015E is what netbook computers are supposed to be. This ultraportable netbook has a 10-inch screen, so it is on par with the size of many tablets on the market – but with a keyboard, more RAM and more storage space. The system can run low-end 3D games that don't demand the graphics of discrete graphics cards.
Pros: The low-voltage Sandy Bridge CPU saves money and helps your home go green.
Cons: The small screen takes a step down in resolution from traditional laptops, making it harder to read small text.
Summary: The Asus 1015BX is a good 10 inch netbook aimed at multimedia use. It can run all sorts of movies, it can even deal with some modern games, all those while going for 5+ hours on a charge. Besides those, it's just as good as the other EEE PCs, although everyday performances are just not as good as what you'd get on a nowadays Intel Atom machine. But the 1015BX is cheaper than its Atom relatives.
