Asus Eee PC 1000HD


$400.00 Released July, 2008

Product Shot 1 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.

The Eee PC 1000HD is a netbook PC that offers a blend of entertainment and productivity features from Asus' 2008 lineup.  The netbook features an 10.1" widescreen LCD display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and Asus' Super Hybrid Engine for improved performance.

  It includes 1GB of DDR2 memory and differs with the 1000 model since it has a 160GB HDD and an Intel Celeron processor.  At 1.45kg, the Eee PC 1000HD is slightly heavier than the 1000 due to the presence of the hard drive but still has a large keyboard that is 92% the size of a generic notebook keyboard.  It includes an SD card reader, 1.3-megapixel webcam, digital array microphone, and built-in stereo speakers.  The netbook also offers both Wi-Fi and optional Bluetooth connectivity and has a VGA port and 3 USB ports.  The Eee PC 1000HD offers a battery life of up to 4.5 hours and operates on either Windows XP Home or Linux.  It is available in a fine ebony or pearl white finish.
