Asus’s latest compact discount notebook incorporates everything from previous models with many notable improvements. It is slightly larger than its predecessors, which makes it easier and more comfortable to use. This model features a 10-inch screen with a native resolution of 1024×600, a necessary improvement on the 901’s 8.9-inch. Also, the keyboard is much larger, almost as big as generic notebooks, which is intended to be more comfortable than the previous models. It weighs in at only 3.6lbs, a bit heavier than the ultra-lightweight 900 but still light relative to standard notebooks.
The Eee PC 1000h features the smallest transistors in the world. The 45nm transistor technology is designed to reduce power usage and heat output without sacrificing performance. Battery life ranges from 3.2-7 hours. The processor runs at a native frequency of 1.6GHz, and built-in power management can increase it to 1.7GHz. It comes with 1GB of DDR2 RAM (supports up to 2GB) and a 80 or 160GB hard drive. The Eee PC 1000h is powerful enough to utilize the high speed Wi-Fi 802.11n that is standard for this model.
The Eee’s name comes from its slogan: “easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play,” thus the 1000h is designed to be as easy as possible. It comes with Windows XP Home and Microsoft Works. It has a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam and bluetooth, and the software is already setup and ready to use. For security, the 1000h comes with anti-virus software and 10GB of file-encrypted storage. The Eee PC 1000h comes with a one-year limited warranty. This
notebook is designed for someone with a budget and basic needs, and is priced at a very reasonable $649.
