Cool little machine,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-inch Netbook (Intel Atom N280 1.66 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, 10 GB Eee Storage, Bluetooth, XP Home, up to 9.5 Hour Battery Life, Black) (Electronics)
I'm an A-level student currently, moving onto uni next year. I've already got a suped up dual core desktop that i'm taking with me. but i needed a portable laptop to take into lectures to view powerpoints and write notes. After looking at an absolute ton of reviews the Acer aspire one and the Asus 1000 HE were the two best. after looking at the acer and seeing the frankly useless touchpad i went for the asus. it's superb, fast enough for non-gaming applications, i've tried some online video streaming and bbc iplayer works fine but higher quality video such as HD you tube is sketchy. the screen is great, really clear, really bright. The keyboard (similair to that on macs) is great, with the keys well spaced out so you're never hitting two keys at once and the only problems with it so far have been the two shift buttons which are quite small. The multitouch gesture touchpad is great, works brilliantly, 160GB HDD is superb, it's a better processor than most of the other netbook competitors too which is great! It looks cool, is slightly heavier than other noteooks but still by no means heavy, also comes with a case that's handy.
Overall this is a great netbook which i think should instead be referred to as a notebook as it's fast and relatively powerful, a great buy!
