Asus Eee PC 1000HD
Released July, 2008
The Pros:RAM is easy to upgrade, very little time or effort. Battery lasts a long time between charges. USB ports on both sides to accommodate various setups.
The Cons:Touchpad keys take some getting used to, need to be thumbed forward rather than pushed down. Right shift key is half-sized, easy to accidentally hit the up arrow. Glossy outer shell picks up fingerprints and smudges.
