Asus Eee PC 1000HE


$399.00 Released February, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Affordable price. Improved keyboard with proper key locations. Includes wireless N and Bluetooth standard.

The Cons:Older 945GSE chipset - better battery life, but no 720p. Standard disk drive creates more noise, heat, draws more power and is more prone to physical damage than solid state alternatives. For jealousy reasons your friends will want to snatch it from you.

Introduced for pre-order on February 2nd 2009, the Eee 1000HE is another 10" netbook from Asus that features an extended battery life. With a much improved keyboard layout, the main improvement found on the 1000HE over the 1000HA is the 9.5 hour battery life with reduced screen brightness and disabled wireless.

Erik: #asus_eee_pc_1000he This might be the first Asus EEE PC first-gen killer. No one else seems to get the netbook right. They add too much power, bulk, weight, while adding to the price and shortening the battery life. This one seems to have it right: decent power, large enough screen, nice keyboard, proper netbook pricing, wireless N, bluetooth, and long battery life.

I love my original EEE, but this may be better if you want something a little more versatile. Feb 5, 09
