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...

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.

Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection

 

Most Netbooks are built around providing maximum value--packing a standard set of low-power components into a cheap plastic shell designed to attract price-sensitive consumers. We've seen a handful of more design-focused Netbooks, but a fancier outer...

Nice design for a Netbook; twice the RAM of typical Netbooks.

More expensive than other Netbooks, but lacks some high-end features.

This sharp-looking version of the popular Eee PC Netbook has more RAM and a bigger hard drive than entry-level models, but it features the same CPU and low-res display.

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...
