Excerpt: Laptop Magazine has tested the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM and published a detailed review . The battery outperforms other six- cell netbooks in their test and their verdict is: "The $369 ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM offers better overall performance than single-core netbooks at a reasonable price. Its good looks, robust software bundle , and long battery life are also points in its favor. The keyboard is a bit cramped, and you don't get smooth 720p video playback (at least online ).
Asus Eee PC 1015PW GOL/GL Netbook powered by Intel Atom N550
17 April 2011
Conclusion: The Online prices for 1015PW are as follows: And for 1015PEM While U.S. needs to pay $ 5.56 (Approx Rs. 255.76) more for PW via amazon US, Indian price is very much bloated with a premium of Rs. 4,960 for 1015PW. The processor is slow- intel knows it- I know it and now you know it. 2GB+ N550+ 320GB HD= Rs. 22,040 doesn’t feel right even comparing it with the U.S. prices. Unless you really want the texture finish you wouldn’t really pick this one up.
Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1015PEM netbook sells for a price of Â£301. It's definitely not the cheapest netbook out there, but it's hardly expensive. The Eee PC 1015PEM packs in a dual-core Atom N550 processor and comes with some noteworthy features such as online storage, a quick-boot OS and a matte screen.
However, it only has 1GB of RAM, and its battery life is below par.
Summary: The compact 10-inch Asus Eee PC 1015PN offers a dual-core Atom processor and Nvidia Ion graphics for decidedly better-than-average Netbook performance, but premium ultraportables that aren't much more expensive can do better still.
Pros: Nvidia Ion graphics for improved video playback and gaming; HDMI-out port added; dual-core Atom CPU.
Cons: No automatic-switching graphics; lacks higher-def display; only 1GB of RAM; price approaches better-performing 11.6-inch ultraportables.
Summary: Power Pack. Asus launches yet another offshoot of the successful series with the Eee PC 1015PN. The highlights are a new Intel Atom N550, a dedicated Nvidia ION 2 graphics unit and a HDMI out. This configuration could represent the perfect blend of performance, mobility and functionality.
Pros: Design, workmanship, haptics, Input Devices, Impressive display, Good performance, Nvidia ION 2 graphics, HDMI port, Battery Life, The considerable performance increase for an acceptable surcharge and the long-awaited HDMI port.
Cons: Expandability, Windows 7 Starter, Moderate scope of supplies, Poor loudspeakers, Nvidia Optimus graphics switching as a standard, a HD ready display that has a resolution of 1366x768 pixels and a USB 3.0.
Summary: Thanks to Nvidia's Ion graphics, the $429 Eee PC 1015PN is one of the most powerful 10-inch netbooks yet. We also like the large touchpad and matte display. But there's also something not quite right about a machine that can handle 1080p video but won't let you change the wallpaper. We know why Asus decided not to grace the Eee PC 1015PN with Windows 7 Premium, and therefore Optimus graphics switching; it would have ballooned the price closer to the Eee PC 1215N, which,...
Pros: Nvidia Ion graphics for HD video playback and gaming, Dual-core Atom CPU, Large touchpad, Bright matte display with wide viewing angles
Cons: Windows 7 Starter, Lacks Optimus automatic graphics switching, Runs hotter than average netbook, Relatively pricey
Summary: The Eee PC 1015PN is one of the most powerful 10 inch mini-laptops around, thanks to its dual core processor and NVIDIA ION graphics. But if battery life is more important to you than graphics performance, there are literally dozens of netbooks that offer better battery life, so this might not be the best option for you.
Summary: AMD Netbook. Asus now offers AMD hardware in the well-known chassis. The Asus Eee PC 1015T works with an AMD V105 processor (1.2 GHz, single core) and an ATI Radeon HD 4250. Is it the perfect Intel Killer in 10 inches or a power hungry netbook without much more performance?
Pros: Application performance, Chiclet keyboard and touchpad, Dedicated graphics unit, Case and workmanship, Good, matt display, HDMI interface, HD rendering, The modern seashell case, the workmanship, HDMI, the given increase in performance and the matt 10 inch display.
Cons: Extendability, Emissions and battery life, Moderate scope of delivery, Poor loudspeakers, A better battery life.
Summary: After spending these past few days picking and probing at the Eee PC 1015PN, I'm left with a mixed impression. On the one hand, this is arguably the nicest netbook on the market right now, and it represents a new high-water mark for the category. While conserving the traditional netbook form factor and keeping battery life at a largely competitive level, this Eee PC ramps up both CPU and graphics performance. It features great overall build quality, as well.
