Review Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook


The Netbook Revolution!? Not yet officially released but already

Elegant Design; Chiclet keyboard; Price; Good workmanship and stability; Intel Atom N450 processor; Long battery life; Low power consumption; Matt display; Good operating velocity

Display hinges look small and instable; Average viewing angle stability; Low brightness; Missing multi-format cardreader; No HDMI-out; Poor loudspeakers

In terms of performance, all netbooks with Intel's Atom N280 processor and Intel's GMA 950 graphics (i.e.Asus Eee PC 1005HA-M, Lenovo IdeaPad S10/12, Acer Aspire One D150/D250/531). Otherwise, upcoming, equal netbooks based on Intel's Pine Trail with...

Asus Eee PC 1005PEB


Editors' note: This review is part of our spring 2010 retail laptop and desktop roundup , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Smart design; reasonable price; excellent battery life.

You could find similar systems for less; the sheer volume of different Eee PC models can be confusing.

This retail version of the popular Eee PC Netbook, the 1005PEB, hits the required notes, and is a little less expensive than many other retail Netbooks (but more than some online models).

ASUS Eee PC 1005PE Review


The ASUS Eee PC 1005PE is the first 10.1-inch Intel Pine Trail netbook on the market featuring the Intel Atom 450 processor and Intel GMA 3150 integrated graphics. Claiming up to 50 percent better battery life than the previous generation, this model...

12 hours of battery life ; Good overall build quality ; Excellent thermal management

Annoying keyboard movement

The Intel Pine Trail platform doesn’t bring a huge performance boost compared to the older N270 and N280-based netbooks, but it does give a huge bump in energy management. Compared to the Eee PC 1005HA which got 9 hours and 37 minutes in our original...

ASUS Eee PC 1005PE review


By our count ASUS has released -- at the very least -- 20 Eee PC netbooks since 2008. Some had 8.9-inch or 10-inch displays, some ran Xandros Linux or Windows XP, and some packed hard drives instead of flash storage. But common to virtually all of them...

Brand new Intel Atom Pine Trail processor ; Over eight hours of battery life ; Nice chiclet keyboard

Glossy lid ; Lots of preloaded software ; Terrible viewing angles

Asus Eee PC 1005PE


As the company credited with practically inventing the Netbook category, it's no surprise Asus makes some of the most popular mini notebooks around. Top among these is the Eee PC 1005 series. Combining low (but not the lowest) prices with great battery...

First Netbook with new Intel Atom N450 CPU; fantastic battery life

Lacks modern Netbook upgrades such as HD display, extra RAM; only minor performance boost over previous versions

As the first next-gen Intel Atom Netbook, Asus' Eee PC 1005PE offers amazing battery life, but otherwise feels like a last-gen system.

ASUS Eee PC 1005PE-P (Seashell)


Powered by Intel's new Atom N450 processor, this sleek and stylish netbook lasts well over 10 hours on a charge.

In the Eee PC 1005PE-P, ASUS has improved upon its best netbook in multiple ways. For roughly the same price as the earlier version, you’re getting a larger hard drive, a sturdier keyboard, over 100 minutes of additional runtime, and more robust...

Today we'll take a look at two netbooks, the Asus Eee PC 1005PEB and the Samsung NP-N210-JA02US. If you think all netbooks are alike, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Asus G51J-3D Laptop and the Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook


Today we will look at two machines from Asus that live at opposite ends of the performance spectrum: the Asus G51J-3D laptop and the Asus Eee PC 1005PE netbook. One will satisfy the gamer in you, while the other aims to take care of your everyday...

To help with gaming performance, Asus loaded the G51J-3D with a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M card to give excellent graphics support. Not so impressive is the battery life on the G51J-3D. Make sure you stay near an electrical outlet, as the...

ASUS Eee PC 1005PE Netbook with Intel Atom N450


We have our first look at the recently released Intel Atom N450, or Pineview, Netbook processor. The ASUS Eee PC 1005PE takes the same Eee PC Seashell design that has served ASUS well over the last year and adds in the latest Intel Atom platform for...

The ASUS Eee PC 1005PE uses the tried and true Seashell design with the new Intel Atom N450 processor to provide expected performance and outstanding battery life in a highly portable, affordable and compact package. It is because of this that we have...

Asus Eee PC 1005PE review


Fortunately, Asus got a lot of things right in the latest update. The laptop is thin and light, and while it gets stellar battery life, the battery doesn't jut too far out from the bottom of the laptop. The keyboard is very easy to use, and the...
