Review Asus Eee PC 1005HA-M Netbook


Little Giant Nomad? Asus has a 10.1 inch size notebook in its ran

Good operating performance; Chic design; Good display; Low surface temperatures; Long battery life; Low system noise in battery mode

Fairly loud system noise under load in mains; CPU heats up fast; Poor loudspeakers

Other 10 inched netbooks with an Intel N270/280, 160 GBytes and one GByte RAM, such as the Ideapad S10/S12 from Lenovo or the Aspire One D150/D250/531 from Acer.

Review Asus Eee PC 1005HA-M (Win7) Netbook


No power socket? No problem! Following the launch of Windows 7 on

Smart, elegant design; Good working speed; Robust case; Generously sized keyboard; Matt screen; Long battery life; Low power consumption

No HDMI port or multi-format card reader; Lid hinges do not seem robust; Mediocre viewing angles; Poor sound quality

Various 10 inch notebooks with Intel N270/280 processors, 160 GB hard drives and 1 GB of RAM, such as the Lenovo Ideapad S10/S12 or the Acer Aspire One D150/D250/531.

I can sum up the Asus Eee PC 1005HA in one sentence: It's a slightly thicker, slightly cheaper version of the Eee PC 1008HA. Hey, it's only fair. At this point, Asus releases more netbooks than Baskin Robbins has flavors. I won't recap all the versions...

Good, refined keyboard ; Solid build quality

Slightly beefier than the previous model

The 1005HA is a compromise. Granted, it's a good one for those that liked the sleek style of the Eee PC 1008HA, but wanted either to see less flash or to spend less cash. That said, you're seeing netbook prices driving down into the $299 range. So take...

ASUS Eee PC 1005HA - Review of the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA


Nearly 9 hours of runtime, Attractive chassis, Compelling software, Spacious keyboard

Lid smudges quickly, Somewhat thick for a netbook, Fan can get loud

Above the display, a 1.3-megapixel webcam provided clear images in a Skype video chat. A friend saw little motion blur when we waved quickly and made out details on our face. The speakers, located at the bottom front edge of the system, allowed us to...

Asus Eee PC 1005HA (Intel Atom N280 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, XP Home, blue)


Editors' note: We've reviewed a more recent retail-exclusive version of the Asus Eee PC 1005HA, called the Asus 1005HAGB-BBY-BK01X .

Sleek, attractive design; lower price; amazing battery.

Thicker and heavier than the previous model; still near the upper end of the Netbook price range.

Asus hits nearly all the marks in the 1005HA, the latest version of its iconic Eee PC, highlighted by a 6-hour-plus battery life.

ASUS Eee PC 1005HA Review


It's easy to get confused by all the variety of netbooks on the market today. These low-cost ultraportable laptops generally have very similar features and many even look virtually identical. That said, it's never easy to overlook the latest Eee PC...

Nice build quality ; Excellent battery life ; Good port layout ... for a netbook

Thick for a modern netbook ; Still uses weak integrated graphics ; Bad touchpad buttons

I'd still like to see a higher resolution screen, different graphics solution, and better touchpad buttons in this netbook, but overall there are plenty of reasons to like the latest Eee PC. If you're in the market for a $400 netbook then this is worth...

Asus Eee PC Netbook 1005HAB-RBLU001X


Although there are several netbooks on the market with over 9 hours battery life, it is difficult to find one for less than the price of a budget laptop. With all the features of a standard netbook (plus more, like wireless-N) and a battery life of...

Excellent value- price that is hard to beatGreat features- unique extras such as Wireless-N supportGood battery life- not the best, but over 4 hours is still goodCompact and lightweight- great for the frequent traveler or studentConsumer-friendly- ease...

One of the best netbooks for the price you will find is the midnight blue..

directional keys are tiny and you’ll find them hard to use at first ; screen is ultra glossy so it's difficult to use it in strong light conditions
