Asus Eee PC 8G: Funky little netbook with very small keys!
29 June 2010
Summary: The Eee PC is a Sub-Notebook, which today is known as a net book. They are designed to be portable so you can take them anywhere. They are usually funky looking and are very expensive, but are more money than they are worth because of the specs. The Mac Book is an example; it looks like a high spec futuristic laptop until you look at the combination of the poor specs and a price that would scare off the biggest Apple fans.
Pros: Portable, works with both Linux and Windows XP and is quite fast
Cons: Keys are fiddly and will hit the wrong keys for a while, has a short battery life and a poor screen
Asus Eee PC 8G: A great little netbook IF you're honest about what you need ...

Summary: I've had the Eee PC for about a month now and I absolutely love it. I think you need to be very clear about what you're buying a netbook for and honest with yourself about how you'll use it. It was clear in my mind that I wanted it for two purposes: to be able to get online at home when my husband is on the main computer , and to be able to travel with it and use it outside without lugging around some great heavy thing. It has satisfied both requirements completely.
Pros: Fast, easy to use, nice looking, very small and lightweight
Cons: Takes a bit of time to get used to the size of the keyboard and screen, battery life is awful
Summary: Well, what can be said about the EEE-PC? This revolutionary technology has changed the way we can browse the internet whilst on the move. As a Computer Scientist, I thought this would be ideal to take to lectures and act as a replacement for a normal laptop whilst I was in lectures. I wasn't disappointed. After first powering up the machine I was surprised how fast the boot time was partly due to the low requirements of the custom built Linux OS.
Highly reccomended, 8gb not a problem, Most users dont reals ...

Summary: I will be writing similar if not identical reviews for all eepc models, not in an attempt to make money from reviews (though after a break into my car i do need more money lol) but because all models function similarly and being an extensive linux user and proud owner of an eepc I think I can offer a lot of tips to viewers. If you want further advice feel free to contact me.
Pros: Plenty of space for installing programs, other data can be stored on sd card or usb device
Cons: none, literally, so long as you are willing to learn a little linux
Excerpt: För priset man betalar får man mycket dator för pengarna. Men man får också precis vad man betalar för. Celeronprocessorn med integrerad grafikkrets och 1GB ram räcker utmärkt till att slösurfa, lyssna på musik och se en och annan film. Den 8GB stora flashdisken gör att XP går att installera utan knussel, till skillnad från den mindre modellen med 4GB. Denna flashdisken är också runt 30% snabbare än 4GB-modellen.
Cons: För liten skärm, för låg upplösning, problem med viloläget, för liten touchpad
