the first turns off the monitor, the second changes the screen resolution, the third, the Super Hybrid Engine switcher, cycles through power-saving modes, and the fourth is a user-definable launch key. The resolution and power-mode buttons are the most interesting

I recently ordered a new Asus EEE PC 1000H to replace my older UMPC, Kohjinsha SH series. I said “ordered” since the availability of the new “doll” from Asus is extremely limited and faces very high demand. My supplier said, if they receive the order in the morning, all will be gone by the evening! Hot chick ha…

Since, I still do not have the computer in my hand to give a proper review, I extracted a nice and fair review from other source. You can read the review from HERE. For the lazy readers, the followings are the key conclusion about the computer:

Specifications (source:http://eeepc.asus.com/global/1000h.htm):

Operating System
Genuine Windows® XP Home
GNU Linux
Display
10″
Intel CPU & Chipset
Intel Atom
Wireless Data Network
WLAN: 802.11 n
Bluetooth: YES
Memory
1GB (DDR2)
Storage
HDD 80GB (Genuine Windows® XP Home)
HDD 80GB (Linux)

Stereo speaker
Digital Array Mic
Battery
6 Cells, 4.2 ~ 7 hrs*
Weight
1.45 kg

The pros:

  1. The battery life is exceptional with maximum 7 hours. Normal laptop computer usually can last only 3 hours maximum.
  2. The new Intel Atom maximize the potential of this small chick since it would means smoother internet browsing, video rendering and better overall system performance.
  3. The 80GB HDD eliminates the most annoying side of the previous EEE PC models where 4GB is too small for these days digital works.
  4. The owner of this EEE PC will also get a network storage of 20GB from Asus. This is really the thing that make it really favorable!
  5. The WIFI support the new N which means you can link it to your new 802.11n wireless router and really make use of the N factor.
  6. Dolby Sound means better sound performance for your MP3 and movies watching.
  7. the 10″ screen size will make it more appealing for web browsing with more readable font size.
  8. The option to include Windows XP NOT Windows Vista is really a good decision since in my older Kohjinsha which features Celeron 800 Mhz but the OS is Vista. The performance is terrible and I have no choice but to downgrade it to WIndows XP.
  9. The overall size really make your backpack very light and also make your daily commute to office or outstation work less stressful.

The cons:

As with most UMPC, this computer does not have a built-in optical drive.

My price for you: RM2400.00 Pretty cheap ha

The following words are the final verdict from the reviewer in www.laptopmag.com

We concluded our review of the Eee PC 901 by saying “with the promise of the 10-inch Eee PC 1000 and Eee PC 1000H just around the corner, some may want to play the waiting game.” And we were right. Those looking for a larger mini-notebook with a good sized screen and a spacious keyboard will find nearly everything they are looking for. However, the similarly configured MSI Wind NB offers comparable performance and endurance for $150 less, although some will prefer the 1000H’s slick aesthetics. We like the Eee PC 1000H, but we’ll like it a lot more if the final pricing for the system winds up being less.
