Review Asus Eee PC R052C-WHI002S Netbook

 

Let's Go Atom! The latest Eee PC is equipped with Intel's N2800 CPU which promises to save more energy and makes this model faster than most Atom netbooks to date. Can the 10-inch netbook face off against fierce competition from AMD's Fusion APUs? Find...

Good workmanship, Fluid playback of videos, even HD, Long battery life, Low emissions, Matt display, Small, light and very mobile - this is what a Netbook should be

Low program and game performance, Low display resolution, Long charging time, Small RAM (1 GB), At least 2 GB RAM should be installed in an entry-level laptop

Compact and robust housing ; High mobility due to miniscule weight ; Full-featured operating system with Windows XP ; Multitouch touchpad ; Large and clear display ; Reasonable battery life

Keyboard takes some getting used to ; Limited display brightness effectively prevents outdoor use ; Average performance ; Unpleasant fan noise

In the HDtune benchmark test, the 4GB SSD achieved a maximum transfer rate of 39.1 MB/sec: a below average result in comparison with conventional hard disks. The SSDs do gain points however in their super fast access times - as little as 0.5 ms for the...

Asus Eee PC 1018PB-BK801 review

 

As a computer maker, Asus is best known for its Eee PC Netbooks, which were arguably the first and most important minilaptops for the mainstream market. The basic plastic design of the Eee PC hasn't changed much over the past few generations, giving...

New slim, brushed-metal design; excellent touch pad.

Some annoying keyboard concessions.

Asus reboots the Eee PC series (at least aesthetically) with this slick-looking metallic Netbook, the Eee PC 1018.

Asus Eee PC 1005PEB review

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our , 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).

Review: Asus Eee PC 900

 

Asus' long-awaited 9-inch (well, 8.9-inch) version of its groundbreaking Eee PC 4G arrives with all the familiar trappings installed. But this time it's a little...

Positively pint-sized, just 3 ounces heavier (2.2 pounds) than the 7-inch model. Window XP model available (same price, but drops total storage from 20 GB to 12 GB). Excellent component upgrades over 7-inch model

Price now flirts with full-sized notebooks. No 802.11n. Multitouch-like trackpad features are simplistic and underdeveloped. Some fan noise. Uncomfortably dim screen

EEE PC 900

 

Late last year, Asus broke open the mini-notebook category with the slight, light, and affordable Eee PC 4G. Who wouldn't want a machine that weighs 2 pounds and measures about 8.9 by 6.5 by 1.4 inches (width by depth by height)? At $399, the...

Multitouch pad actually works in Windows Crisp, 8.9-inch screen

Small keyboard not suited for adult hands

Inside, you'll find most of the same Eee guts that folks have come to know and love, including a 900-MHz Intel CPU and a 4GB internal hard drive (it also ships with an 8GB SD Card). That meager amount of hard-drive space was insufficient real estate...

ASUS EeePC 900

 

For the EeePC 900, ASUS added a few enhancements to the original model, and it's still a tremendous bargain.

Amazing bargain. Added an extra 16GB SSD drive. Wider screen. Designed like any other high-end laptop. Integrated webcam. Three USB ports. Good speakers. Xandros Linux is speedy and solid. Comprehensive software bundle.

Not powerful enough to stream audio and video from an external optical drive. Cramped keyboard. Terrible mouse buttons. ; Watch the ASUS EeePC 900 Video Review!

ASUS Eee PC 900 (Linux) Review

 

The Linux-powered ASUS Eee PC 900 markedly improves on an already solid mini-notebook. Though the system is $150 more than its predecessor and has an hour less of battery life, those longing for an ultra-mobile system that sports a larger screen and...

ASUS Eee PC 900 (Linux)

 

The second-generation Eee PC is worth the extra money because of its larger screen and beefier storage, but we wish it lasted longer on a charge.

Wider, higher-resolution screen, Multi-touch trackpad, Simple interface, Lightweight design

Cramped keyboard, Lackluster battery life, Automatic power-saving feature affects performance

The trackpad's standout feature is ASUS' new multi-touch FingerGlide capability. Similar to the Apple MacBook Air's touchpad, we could scroll vertically through Web pages by swiping two fingers up or down; scrolling horizontally was finicky. You can...

Asus Eee PC 900 review

 

When we first saw the diminutive Asus Eee PC back in the fall of 2007, we were duly impressed by its capability to mix small size with a small price, and rightly predicted it would be popular with consumers and influential with other PC makers...

Bigger screen in same small package; new touch pad gesture controls; long battery life.

Not as much storage space as the Linux version; same old Celeron CPU as original Eee PC; keyboard just as cramped.

The 9-inch Asus Eee PC 900 adds a bigger screen and a larger capacity solid-state hard drive than its 7-inch precursor, but the new price has passed the point of an impulse purchase.
