Excerpt: ASUS’ previous netbook, the 1015PEM seemed to be quite decent in terms of performance and while it wasn’t the best, it still made for a good netbook. Now with the 1015PX, I definitely hope that ASUS is trying to bring in something different here. Design and Build QualityThe 1015PX that came in our labs was a white-coloured one.
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: 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
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.
Conclusion: The Asus Eee PC 1015PX builds on old strengths and dabbles in innovations that don't necessarily turn out as well as we would have hoped. We already know the ins and outs of the case of the netbook very well, and here you get the high level of quality that we have come to expect from Asus netbooks. The same holds true for the keyboard and touchpad. Connectivity isn't quite up-to-date; we would have liked to have seen a USB 3.0 connection on the Eee PC 1015PX.
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
Conclusion: AMD advances into the netbook market and proves to be very dangerous for the up until now unrivaled chip manufacturer, Intel. However, AMD isn't at the forefront with its APUs yet. Alike the previous models, the Asus Eee PC 1015B's case convinces. The battery life of about 6.5 hours in use is only average for a netbook. The Asus system can clearly score with its AMD Radeon HD 6250 . Also, a USB 3.0 and HDMI port is still a rare thing among 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
