Technology Tuesday on Empty Streets: Asus EEE PC 1000HE

Posted 3:47 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , ,
I always thought that my Hanna(HP Mini 2140) was the best business laptop in the market, however knowing how competitive these companies are in terms of technology and consumer sales it wouldn't take very long before the competitors would try to catch up. One such competitor Asus has released their new hybrid laptop which was priced slightly lower than that of the HP Mini 2140. Using the new Intel Atom N280 processor with a 10-inch LED-lit screen, 6-cell battery, 160 GB HDD, Bluetooth, 802.11n wireless networking, and a revised keyboard. Asus also claims the battery will last for 9.5 hours.

At CeBIT 2009, Asus unveiled the 10-inch EEE 1008HA, introducing the new design concept "Seashell".

Product Summary:
The good: Excellent battery life; improved keyboard; competitively priced.

The bad: Slightly faster Intel Atom CPU fails to impress; other Netbook-makers have shown more innovation.

The bottom line: Asus practically invented the Netbook market, and the Eee PC 1000HE is an overdue overhaul that offers a new CPU and great battery life, but misses some of the competition's bells and whistles.

Specifications: Processor: Intel Atom (1.66 GHz) ; RAM installed: 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM

Hi Maria,

you'd be quite surprised with the price of this little wonder heheh It is just a little below 22,000 Philippine Pesos :) Based on other reviews I have found that it can quite be a formidable foe for regular laptops hehehe :)

Great laptop. It looks like it's packed with great features.



Empty Streets said...

Hi Maria,

Yup you would be amazed at what this little baby can do heheh The only thing that is missing is a good optical drive. One thing I have noticed too is that the Asus 1000HE's keypad is similar to that of the Sony Vaio's P series lappy too :)
