Review Asus Eee PC R052C-WHI002S Netbook

 

Let's Go Atom! The latest Eee PC is equipped with Intel's N2800 C

Good workmanship; Fluid playback of videos, even HD; Long battery life; Low emissions; Matt display

Low program and game performance; Low display resolution; Long charging time; Small RAM (1 GB)

Power-saver thanks to the N2600: Acer Aspire One D270 and Asus Eee PC 1011CX. Fast and high-resolution: Acer Aspire One 522 or the larger Aspire One 722.

Short Review: Asus Eee PC 900 Subnotebook

 

The Eee is growing up. Bigger display, more disk space and a full ...

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 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

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 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

 

The Asus Eee PC 900 is the new update to the original Eee PC ... the affordable mini notebook that shook up the notebook market in 2007. Is this $550 mobile companion the best choice for your next travel laptop? We took an in-depth look at the Eee PC...

Small and light ; Reasonably well built and durable ; Flash-based storage ; Nice multi-touch touchpad

Too expensive for what you get (particularly compared to original Eee PC) ; 12GB of storage isn't a single drive (one 4GB drive and one 8GB drive) ; White plastics "look" cheap ; The battery meter isn't very accurate (reports low battery or AC adapter...

In short, if you're in the market for a low cost travel notebook the original Eee PC 4G is still a great notebook. We'll pass on the Eee PC 900 at its current price

Asus Eee PC 900

 

Ultra-portable notebooks are often very expensive, but not the Linux-based Asus Eee PC. This little sub-notebook costs a mere $400 USD – a price anyone can appreciate. To get there Asus had to trim all the fat, including Windows, out of the equation,...

Decent battery life; highly portable; lots of useful software

Tiny keyboard is hard to type on; screen is very small; system is not for everyone

As it stands now the Eee is good, but we can't wait to see it get better with future updates.

Review of Asus Eee PC 900

 

Asus is getting as popular as the days go by and that includes the release of their Eee PC 701 netbook which broke boundaries in some areas where netbook features are concerned. So much that others tried to copy it …

Bottom line, the Asus Eee PC 900 is certainly an improvement from its predecessor and we think calling it an ‘improvement' really justifies this netbook. If you already are a fan of the Eee PC 701 netbook then you will definitely like this one.
