Asus Eee PC 901 review: Asus Eee PC 901

 

Asus Eee PC 901

Much-improved battery life; new mouse and quick-launch buttons; still highly portable and reasonably priced.

Slightly bigger than the Eee 900; price is creeping up to the full-size laptop range.

The long-awaited Asus Eee PC 901 is the best version of this inexpensive Netbook yet, but it's facing increased competition from the likes of HP, Dell, and MSI.

Asus Eee PC 900 + 1 The improvements of the Eee PC 901 compared w

In the whole the Asus Eee PC is an interesting complete package with a long battery runtime to a low price. Users who type a lot and want a bright display, should acquire one of the 10" counterparts (i.e. Asus Eee PC 1000H or MSI Wind U100).

ASUS Eee PC 901 Review

 

The chassis seams match up with reasonably tight tolerances, plastics feel thick (though the pearl-like white plastics look cheap) and the display hinges are molded into body with the battery. Overall, the Eee PC 900 is almost identical to the original...

Small and light ; Reasonably well built and durable ; Flash-based storage ; Intel Atom processor surprisingly capable ; Surprisingly acceptable battery life

Impressive, but ASUS already has several superior Eee PC models on the market ; 12GB of storage isn't a single drive (one 4GB drive and one 8GB drive) ; White plastics feel nice but "look" cheap ; Keyboard too small/cramped

The Eee PC 901 is still an impressive mini notebook or "netbook" for your travel needs, but we hesitate to recommend this particular notebook over the newer Eee PC 1000H which features a larger keyboard, larger screen, and a larger capacity traditional...

ASUS Eee PC 901 Linux Edition Review

 

If the ASUS Eee 900 basically amounted to a larger-screened version of the 7-inch original, then the Eee 901 marks its graduation into a distinct model. Packing Intel's latest 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, in place of the 900's Celeron 900MHz, ASUS could...

Asus Eee PC 901

 

Asus's Eee PC kick-started the netbook craze and remains the brand most associated with the category. Early iterations were praised for their low-cost Linux-based architecture, but lately Asus has ratcheted up its product line to compete with...

Five hour battery life

Limited storage capacity, cramped keyboard, and slow benchmark results

Indeed, the 901 took more than twice as long to complete our Photoshop benchmark as the other two netbooks here. On the other hand, the 901's standard six-cell battery far outstripped the competition's three-cells, eking out more than five and a half...

Asus EeePC 901

 

The Eee PC 901 is better than its predecessor, the 900. It looks nicer, has a faster, more efficient CPU and better battery life. It's larger and 100g heavier and its keyboard is still too small for our liking, but in many ways it's the pick of the...

Intel Atom CPU, 8.9-inch screen, Battery life, High-speed wireless

Fiddly, small keyboard

Asus' Eee PC 901 netbook

 

If you hang around these parts at all, you're surely familiar by now with Asus' little Eee PC laptops. These miniature, low-priced laptops were initially inspired by the One Laptop Per Child effort aimed at providing laptops to kids in developing...

The original Eee PC was an intriguing device because it was just a step above a Blackberry, a basic web client device for about $400. The Eee PC 901, meanwhile, is something else: With Windows XP installed, it's a strikingly complete little laptop PC....

Asus Eee PC 901 Review

 

The Eee PC 901 is the latest in Asus' subnotebook line, and includes a larger screen, larger keyboard... and larger price tag. Jerry Jackson brings us a review.

The design of the original Eee PC was something truly unique in the market. Weighing in at just two pounds and delivering a performance level similar to a full-featured budget notebook, the only model that came close to “directly” competing with the...
