Review Asus Eee PC 1008P Netbook


A Vision by Karim Rashid! Asus presented yet another 10.1 inch ne

Elegant design by Karim Rashid; Robust surfaces; Chiclet keyboard; Good workmanship and stability; Intel Atom N450 processor; Very long battery life; Low power consumption; Good work rate; Price

Average viewing angle stability; Poor display (glare type); Missing multi-format cardreader; Poor loudspeakers; Poor scope of delivery

All current netbooks with a 10.1 inch screen based on Intel's new Pine Trail range. For example, among others, Asus' Eee PC 1005PE, Dell's Mini 10, MSI's Wind U135 or Acer's Aspire One 532 netbook.

Checking out the ASUS Eee PC 1008P Seashell Karim Rashid Collection Netbook


I was selected to be one of a group of bloggers who'll get the use of an ASUS Eee PC 1008 netbook for a year. This isn't quite the typical netbook though, as this is a “Seashell Karim Rashid Edition” … and before you ask, no — I had never heard of...

Asus Eee PC 1008P Seashell-Karim Rashid Collection


Put your glasses on, as the flashy snazziness has begun. This new designer netbook by Asus comes with a tag, rather a name tag of industrial designer Karim Rashid. It's a netbook made for the premium user, but not necessarily in performance, (we'll be...

Price and verdict The Price (MRP) Rs. 26,990/-, which is surely expensive, and one gets the idea that they’re paying a premium for the glitterati factor. The performance results brims on and around the average results available these days from...

Asus Eee PC 1008P review


If you want to make a statement with your choice of netbook, look no further than the Karim Rashid edition of the Asus Eee PC. That's assuming you can overlook the - still eye-catching - chocolate-brown edition, and plump straight for the pink.

In areas such as screen and keyboard, the Asus Eee PC 1008P remains as weak as its Seashell predecessors. But for its chosen audience, we’re sure this netbook will win hearts in its coral-bling Hot Pink finish. And exceptional battery life is a welcome...

Asus Eee PC 1008P Seashell Karim Rashid review


If you're looking for a 10.1in netbook with a bit of style, the Asus Eee PC 1008P Seashell could well be of interest. Designed by Karim Rashid, the laptop has soft textured finish to it that looks fantastic. It's available in the sleek brown that we've...

A slick and stylish netbook, but you're paying for its looks. You can get a netbook with the same specification and better battery life for less.

Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Edition


Cloaked in faux reptilian skin all around, the premium-looking 10-inch Asus Eee PC 1008P netbook definitely makes heads turn.

Slim design ; Stylish, unique exterior ; Two 3-cell batteries ; Gesture-enabled touchpad ; Extended online storage

Two USB ports

The Asus Eee PC 1008P is definitely a premium looking netbook, with regular netbook performance. It also comes with two separate batteries, gesture-enabled touchpad, and pretty good battery life. At Rs. 26,990, the higher price tag is highly justified...

Product Specifications

The Eee PC 1008P is encased from top to bottom in visually striking, organic Digi-Waves. The rippling lines - which convey a sense of forward movement -adhere perfectly to the golden ratio, bearing testament to the extreme precision required to produce the subtle waves and retain color consistency across the peaks and troughs. The perfection of each wave can be perceived with the gentlest of touches. The Eee PC Seashell Karim Rashid Collection reflects Karim and ASUS
