ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-inch Netbook Subnotebook Laptop PC review

Feb 25 2009 - The ASUS Eee PC 1000HE is more than just a small upgrade of their 1000 series netbooks. The system does include the new Intel Atom N280 although it doesn't really boost performance over the older N270. The real improvements come from the large six cell battery that give it amazing long running time and the redesigned keyboard that puts the right shift key in a more logical place. With its attractice price tag, 802.11n wireless and Bluetooth, this certainly is a very feature rich netbook even if it weight over three pounds.

Guide Review - ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-inch Netbook Subnotebook Laptop PC

Feb 25 2009 - One of the biggest complaints about the Eee PC 1000 series netbooks has been the keyboard layout. ASUS has changed this with the new 1000HE making the placement of the right shift key more traditional and a very welcome design change.

The big improvement of the Eee PC 1000HE though is the battery. Many of the previous Eee PC 1000 models have only shipped with three cell batteries giving them a running time no different from traditional laptop computers. The 1000HE comes equipped with a sizable six cell battery that they claim can provide up to 9.5 hours of running time. A more realistic running time is around 7 hours without requiring it being plugged in.

Many people may be excited to see the Eee PC 1000HE comes with the newer Intel Atom N280 processor. It is supposedly faster thanks to its higher bus speed and slightly higher overall clock speed. In real world usage, most people won't notice any performance difference between it and a similarly equipped N270. Much of this probably comes from the fact that the system uses the same 945 chipset with its GMA 950 integrated graphics that still prevent it from supporting even 720p HD video.

One area that the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE certainly has an advantage is in the connectivity. While it doesn't have the cellular networking, it does come equipped with the faster 802.11n wireless networking. Add to this a built-in Bluetooth adapater and the 1000HE has the ability to easily connect to wireless peripherals without the need of a dongle.

The downside to all these features and the very long battery life is a much heavier weight. It is one of the few netbooks that weighs over three pounds. At least the overall dimensions are still small with smooth lines rather than a bulky battery pack.
