The Asus Eee 101HA is a great netbook for the user looking for a larger screen and keyboard than the typical netbook offers. The machine has plenty of power for your average computer user and good battery life.
Pros: Good keyboard, Good battery life, Performs well
Summary: The Asus Eee PC 1101HA isn’t the fastest Intel Atom computer around. And in fact, it feels kind of sluggish at times, even with the CPU running at top speed. But by allowing users to overclock the processor to run at 1.73GHz, Asus has made the Eee PC 1101HA feel significantly faster than the
Asus Eee PC T91
, which features the same processor and a lower resolution display.
Asus EEE PC 1101HA reviewed – good, very good actually, but…
20 August 2009
Conclusion: For a picky guy like me, it’s amazing there weren’t many things i didn’t like about the Asus EEE PC 1101HA . It’s good looking, powerful enough for everyday applications and maybe even a little more , while remaining light and portable. Keyboard is comfortable to use and the bigger screen offers an increased working space. Of course, i for one don’t like the glossy finish, but most of you don’t have a problem with it from what I’ve seen.
Pros: same aspect and build quality of the previous EEE PCs, bigger 11.6″ screen with 1366 x 768 px resolution, Good CPU with fast Over-clocking feature, ergonomic keyboard, 6 cell battery – up to 9 hours tested autonomy, powerful enough to play 1080P movies and run Windows 7 with Aero, very good price tag for these performances, Wi-Fi draft n wireless
Cons: no Bluetooth for this version, but there will be versions of the 1101HA with this feature also, the right part of the keyboard is crowded, with the right shift and the directional keys, the fast overclocking option is not so easy to use (i had problems with it on Windows 7), Some might find the resolution too big for this screen and uncomfortable if used for a longer period of time, touch-pad is kind of uncomfortable
Summary: There are now a handful of 11- and 12-inch netbooks for consumers who are looking for a bit more real estate for their eyes and hands. At $429, the ASUS Eee PC 1101HA is a compelling buy. While it's $50 more expensive than the Acer Aspire One 751h, it's $70 cheaper than the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 and the Samsung NC20. However, those latter two netbooks offer a performance advantage that can't be overlooked.
