Asus Eee PC 900A Atom N270 1.6GHz 1GB 4GB SSD 8.9" Netbook Linux

  • Conclusion: The Asus Eee PC 900A is a nice little computer really that can be lots of fun and even useful, it’s not going to replace your desktop or even a high end laptop, but for basic stuff it works well. There are problems with it, but they can be easily remedied by either upgrading the hardware or installing another operating system, there are many sites out there devoted to this little netbook with a wealth of information on how to make the most of it and get it running much...
  • Pros: Integrated memory card reader to add more space, Easy to use, Inexpensive, Lightweight and portable, Even though it’s a refurb it looks brand new, Can be upgraded easily
  • Cons: Very limited space, Cannot uninstall updates and many of the programs you might not want or need, Auto update downloads all updates and fills drive, When drive is full system slows to a crawl and becomes unresponsive for tens of seconds at a time

Expert Review

30 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The Eee 900 is a great improvement on the original models: the screen is now just about visible, while the same fantastic portability is maintained. The only question is the price: with original Eees now going for under £200, are you prepared to pay another £150 for an extra bit of screen and storage space?
  • Pros: Asus makes PCs easy. You might say they're Eeesy PC. Anyway, we digress. The biggest improvement on the Eee 701 is the screen. Gone are the speakers either side of the panel, and in its place is a full 8.9-inch panel with a crispy 1,024x600 resolution. The Linux operating system is a piece of cake to use while installing Windows XP is a slice of the same confectionery, and the teeny trackpad offers zooming functions with your fingers like Mac multitouch. Mmm. Delicious.
  • Cons: It's only half a year old but the 900 is already a bit dated by netbook standards. The Intel Atom processor that's now standard is absent - there's the same old 900MHz processor in the 701, and while the 12 or 20GB Flash memory will prevent dropped laptop death, the 160GB hard disk squeezed into later Eee numbers is far more enticing for multimedia libraries. At around two hours, the battery life also leaves a little to be desired.

ASUS EeePC 900

PC Magazine
25 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The EeePC 900 is now $550, but you get an extra 16GB SSD drive, a wider 8.9-inch screen, and 1GB of RAM.
  • Pros: Amazing bargain. Added an extra 16GB SSD drive. Wider screen. Designed like any other high-end laptop. Integrated webcam. Three USB ports. Good speakers. Xandros Linux is speedy and solid. Comprehensive software bundle.
  • Cons: Not powerful enough to stream audio and video from an external optical drive. Cramped keyboard. Terrible mouse buttons.

  • Conclusion: If you want to get your hands on a small notebook for the cheapest price possible and are comfortable installing a different OS onto the system, then you can't do better than the Asus Eee PC 900A. In terms of price the Eee PC 900A deserves a score of 9/10, but in terms of productivity I can only give it a 5/10. Overall I give this netbook a rating of 6/10.

Asus Eee PC 900 Ultra Mobile PC

29 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Asus has done a good job with the Eee PC 900.  Almost all of the things that we - and virtually everyone else - like about the Eee PC 700 have been improved upon in some way, shape or form - except for the price.  The Eee PC 900 delivers a much better user experience than its older counterpart, thanks to its larger, higher resolutions screen, default CPU clock speed of 900MHz, and 1GB of RAM.
  • Pros: 8.9" 1024x600 Screen, Ultra Small Form factor, Tons of Included Software, Fast Boot and Load Times, Good Battery Life, 20GB of Durable Flash Storage, Silent
  • Cons: Keyboard is Cramped and Mushy, Screen Not Very Bright, Much More Competition at its Price Point

LAPTOP Magazine
12 May 2008
  • Summary: The Linux-powered ASUS Eee PC 900 markedly improves on an already solid mini-notebook. Though the system is $150 more than its predecessor and has an hour less of battery life, those longing for an ultra-mobile system that sports a larger screen and more storage space will find the Eee PC 900 attractive.
  • Pros: Wider, higher-resolution screen, Multi-touch trackpad, Simple interface, Lightweight design
  • Cons: Cramped keyboard, Lackluster battery life, Automatic power-saving feature affects performance

Asus Eee PC 900 review

29 April 2008
  • Summary: Maybe less of an impulse buy as the original Asus Eee PC 701 model when its price was closer to £200, the Asus Eee PC 900 is nevertheless a very attractive proposition for anyone looking for ultra-compact computing. Well-built, stylish and relatively powerful on its chosen ground, the expansion of the screen especially means it has really expanded its 'want one' allure.

Asus Eee PC 900 Review

26 March 2008
  • Conclusion: The Eee PC is certainly an interesting product, and is a very good product for just $400 USD. That said, its usability is somewhat limited by its small screen, small storage and Linux environment. Thankfully, Asus has already announced the next version will run Windows XP, have a larger display and a 12GB hard drive.
  • Pros: Decent battery life; highly portable; lots of useful software
  • Cons: Tiny keyboard is hard to type on; screen is very small; system is not for everyone
