ASUS Eee PC 1005PE review

Asus EeePC 1005PR


The Asus EeePC 1005PR combines a high resolution with a Broadcom HD chip, for good high definition experience in a small package.

Broadcom chip improves HD playback. High resolution. Big battery leads to great battery life. Easily accessible memory slots. Matted design prevents smudging.

Bigger keyboard would be nice. Mouse buttons are not click-friendly. No HDMI port.

Asus Eee PC 1005PR review


Now that Asus has a solid entry in the basic $299 category with the

Adds HD display and video playback to Asus' flagship Netbook; reasonably priced for a premium Netbook.

Streaming Flash video playback is still choppy; Eee PC touch pad is in need of a refresh.

A rare 10-inch system with an HD display, the Eee PC 1005PR also adds HD video playback hardware for a well-priced step-up Netbook experience.

Asus Eee PC 1005PE review


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...

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...
