Review: Asus EEE Pc 1000H

01 Dec 2008

ASUS keeps on pumping out new netbooks - small, inexpensive utility computers designed for portable use. Its latest model, the Intel Atom-powered 1000H is a fair touch bigger than its previous systems, thanks to the 10-inch screen.

Pros: Bigger can be better; the larger screen is easier to see and the bigger body allows for a larger and more finger-friendly keyboard layout. Our test model ran Windows XP, giving it lots of program compatibility.

Cons: At 10 inches, it’s not that much smaller than some cheaper notebooks, at which point you really start noticing the lower specifications a lot.

Verdict: Perhaps a bit big for a netbook, but impressive nonetheless.
