- Best Buy offers the 1005HA-B for $299 (plus tax). It features the N270 (1.6GHz 533FSB) cpu, glossy display, 3-Cell 23Wh Li-ion Battery (4 hrs), and a 1.3MP webcam. Excluded are the Bluetooth module, 10GB online Eee storage, and netbook sleeve. This is obviously the "Basic" model. I was able to demo this unit at Best Buy on June 27th, and IMO you are giving up quite a bit for the ~$60 savings over the 'P' model. Not to mention that as of now Asus will not sell you a spare 3 or 6-cell Li-Ion battery.
- The 1005HA-V is in the middle of the bunch and the only one with a matte display. Those that frequently work outdoors or despise reflections will appreciate the matted display. It also features a N270 cpu, 6-cell 48Wh Li-ion Battery (8.5 hrs), 0.3MP webcam (according to Amazon specs, but it may in fact be 1.3MP), no Bluetooth, and absent again is the netbook sleeve.
- So in a nutshell (or would that be seashell?) the 1005HA-P offers the faster N280 cpu, glossy display, 1.3MP webcam, 6-Cell 63Wh Li-ion Battery with a whopping 10.5 hrs run time, Bluetooth v2.1, and a black netbook sleeve. Realistic battery numbers are between 8.5-9hrs. of battery life if you're using wifi & doing email/word processing/YouTube/web surfing.
The glossy LED display offers excellent color and contrast when used indoors. I was also pleasantly surprised with the excellent horizontal viewing angles. Keep in mind that once you get in a room full of light or step outdoors screen reflections could become annoying. I've used mine outside on a sunny day, and the screen is still very much legible. In fact it was much more detailed than the matte screen on my Dell D600.Read more ›
I honestly don't know where to start with this review of the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA-PU1X-BU netbook that I bought. I have read all 152 previous reviews on Amazon.com and a whole bunch of others that I found on computer oriented Internet sites. The four and five star ratings far outnumbered the negative ones, but it was the couple of dozen unenthusiastic reviews that scared the heck out of me. I delayed ordering the computer because of the horror stories of bad batteries, faulty chargers and blue screen crashes.
Eventually, I noticed that most of these critical reviews referred to the battery or to the charging brick and most of those were describing what could have easily been mistakes made by the owners of the machine. They didn't attach the power cord properly or the charging time was too short and some didn't seem to understand how to determine when the battery was fully charged. Some complainers faulted the battery life, but didn't take into account what was running or turned on when using the computer. The battery is drained more quickly when the computer is operating with all rockets running. In other words, when I subtracted the operator associated problems or misconceptions from the difficulty with the Asus hardware there were only a few legitimate complaints about the machine. In reading reviews of other machines it was obvious that they had their share of detractors too. One gripe I can verify is how the Asus Eee PC lid is a fingerprint magnet. It really is.
I researched about all of the netbooks on the market today (Acer, HP, Toshiba, Dell, Samsung and of course the Asus Eee PC line.Read more ›
Bought this netbook for our upcoming trip to Europe, immediately tried to install Windows 7 RC on it, worked PERFECTLY. I highly recommend buying the 2GB RAM upgrade (I went with the Amazon recommended 2GB 667mhz crucial module), best $20 you'll ever spend. All drivers installed fine on Win7, Aero is enabled, everything is very snappy. Can't wait to take this thing on the road.
I just got my unit yesterday and spent a lot of time enjoying its sleek functionality. The only thing that did not work was the input microphones. After spending time with Asus' customer service department, they confirmed my suspicion that it was a hardware issue. My choices were to send the unit to them for repair or replacement, (their choice,) or to call Amazon. I was so pleased with Amazon's answer to the problem. I used the automated phone call system. The moment I clicked the "Call me" button, my phone rang, and I was immediately connected to someone who resolved the issue by sending out a new unit and a prepaid mailing label to return my defective unit. That's how it should be done, and I highly recommend making purchases from Amazon for that reason.
After 4 days with no hiccups I feel confident enough that I got a good one. So I removed the stickers (and the residual glue with cooking oil) and I thought I'd give you my .02 on this little baby. First thing I did was let it charge to a green light before I turned it on. Went through XP setup, Turned off and uninstalled Parental Control so it wouldn't lock up when I plugged in my USB external drive, Uninstalled the office trial and any other bloatware I found, Did a windows update, Turned off all the Fu Fu appearance stuff (choose windows classic, no fading menus, ect.) Made sure there wasn't any crap in startup (msconfig) Turned off a few services I don't need. Installed Media Player Classic and FFDShow codec pack (for vob, xvid, divx playback) Winamp for MP3s and Shoutcast Radio, and Firefox. I also installed OpenOfficeOrg, Zone Alarm and AVG Anti-virus. Haven't even run Windows Media Player or IE. I used Easeus partition manager to shrink C: to 25 gigs (XP, Programs) and expand D: to 118 gigs (75 movies, 5000 MP3s, 25 or so TV shows). OK, so this little baby screams, Absolutely as fast as my desktop in browsing, media playback. Watching a movie in MPC showed CPU usage at 15% to 20% in task manager. I tested WiFi on a few open signals in my neighborhood and it works fine. My Jabra bluetooth headset works great with Skype, I've gotten 6 hours on my battery watching movies, listening to music (down to 2 hours left) before plugging it back in. This is the coolest machine I've ever had. My next project is to use M-Router software on my main computer to give Bluetooth wireless internet access to the EEPC since I don't have Wi Fi at home. Thanks, J
