Asus G51J-3D Laptop and the Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook - Asus Eee PC 1005PE Netbook
(Page 3 of 4 )
The Asus Eee PC 1005PE is a 10.1-inch netbook that should appeal to consumers looking for portability. Packed with an upgraded processor and excellent battery life, it's a solid competitor in the netbook field, despite some of its negatives. The Asus Eee PC 1005PE is available for around $370. It comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor as well as technical support available online or through the company's 24-7 toll-free line.
The 1005PE comes with a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, which is a newer processor from Intel and a step up from the older N270 and N280 processors that found their way into many netbooks in the past. The N450 processor does give better performance, but do not expect any drastic changes.
The 1005PE is still a netbook, which places priority on portability over performance. That said, you can expect to be able to surf the web, check your email, partake in instant messaging, and other similar tasks without too much trouble.
Multitasking support comes in the way of 1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM. This is a bit of a disappointment, as more RAM would have been a welcome addition. Decent storage is available with the netbook's 160 GB hard drive. Graphics are supported by a Mobile Intel GMA 3150 card.
Battery life is exceptional, making the 1005PE a perfect travel companion. On a full charge, you can expect up to fourteen hours of usage from the six-cell battery. Microsoft Windows 7 Home Starter is the operating system that comes pre-installed on the 1005PE.
