Asus has outed its first netbook based on the just-announced dual-core Atom N550 processor. Step forward, the Eee PC 1015PEM, which combines Asus' curvy seashell design with said 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB of DDR 3, 160-320GB of hard drive storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi and all the usual netbook portage. Asus Eee PC 1015PEM Well, almost - this …
You didn't mention it, but the display is only 1024x600 - which isn't much use for anything these days.
It's a netbook, not a laptop. That is the standard resolution for a netbook.
which is actually fine considering the screen size, if the resolution were any higher you would need would need a magnifying glass to read text.
Although, i would like to be able to increase the resolution when using an external monitor.
Still Slower than HP dm1z netbok
I was going to order that until I discovered the HP 11.6" Netbook which is faster than the Asus and it's available with:
AMD Turion II Neo Dual-Core Processor K625 (1.5GHz)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4225 Graphics
720P LED screen
Solid state drive.
And "13 hours" is a lie
Or, as they would probably call it, an estimate for marketing purposes.
Asus eeePC904HA, very big clear sticker about 6 hours battery life, and amazing how my iPhone's clock puts it at 4-4.5 hours even running the eeePC power management, wifi turned off, sitting twiddling its thumbs... (mostly - reading eBooks)
Obviously faulty iPhone clock, couldn't be Asus being full of it.
Nice to see that Eee PC's friend has returned to the pages of this esteemed organ.
