This review is from: Asus 1005HA 10-inch Netbook (Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, WLAN, Webcam, up to 8.5 Hours Battery, Windows XP, Windows Live Suite, White) (Electronics)What a brilliant piece of kit. Needed a small netbook for when I'm out and about taking photos and this looked like the one for me. Did a bit of research and what really swung it was the 8.5 hour battery.
Yes the screen can only go upto 1024x600 but it works very well. It comes with Microsoft Office Trial, Norton Anti-Virus (both of which I took off straight away). The drive is split into 2 80GB drives. Sound is good and the camera fine for chat.
Plays AVI files very well, so the kids will be happy in the back of the car instead of having to watch films on a 3" screen of their MP4's.
The machine itself looks very neat and tidy. While on the train the other day someone asked me if it was made by Apple, which must be a compliment in itself.
Overall this is well worth the money, and if you need a bigger battery theres another version, but at too much extra cost to justify the extra 1.5 hours you'll get. I've also ordered a car charger for it, so I can charge on the go.
Brilliant stuff from a company I've only just heard of.
