The ASUS Eee PC 1000HE comes with a webcam and Windows XP Home Edition.
Weighing just over 3 pounds, it's not the lightest we've seen.
It has a 160 GB hard drive. When you break that down, you're looking at over 25,000 songs with extra room for movies and games. With your purchase, ASUS also gives you 10GB of online storage.
1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM.
The new Intel Atom N280 uses only 2.5 watts of power. Put that next to the 35 watts used by a Core 2 Duo found in most regular sized notebooks, and that's what we call fantastic battery management. The 1.66 GHz Atom N270 has a front side bus of 667 MHz for much faster data transfer on mobile applications.
There isn't one, but it has 3 USB ports for external drive usage.
It comes with:
* Integrated wireless, compatible with 802.11b/g/n networks
* 3 USB 2.0 ports
* A 2-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC)
* 1 VGA monitor port
* Headphone jack, Microphone jack
* Ethernet port
A 10-inch LED-backlit widescreen display has 1024 x 600 resolution. If the user finds anything wrong with the brightness within 30 days of purchase, ASUS will replace it free of charge.
A Super Hybrid Engine and a 8700mAh Li-Ion battery pack gives up to 9.5 hours of battery life. That's the highest it goes as far as netbooks go.
It's backed by a 1-year warranty for parts and labor.
The storage. 160 GB is nothing to scoff at.
10GB of online storage is like your own personal flash drive anywhere you go.
Extremely good battery life. 9.5 hours is one of the best on the market.
The weight. 3 lbs. is light, but not the lightest.
It's a little more expensive than some of the other mini notebooks out there, but you get a great little laptop for your money. Whether that's a pro or a con is up to you.
