A good difference between the px and older models is that the charger does not have a middle brick anymore, just a long stringy wire, which is much more portable and I really liked it.
A feature that could sway you one way or the other is the processor clock speed, the Atom n550 (1.5ghz) versus the Atom n570 (1.66ghz). The reason I am writing this at the moment is because resellers are still selling the n550 model for cheaper. I don't know if 0.16ghz is worth $30-$50 more, but clock speed is not everything in a processor, so who knows? This is why I updated to 4 and not 5 stars. Another feature that could sway you one way or the other is that the 1015px uses the Intel UMA for graphics, which did well when I used it on the 1015px, as oppossed to the 1015pn which uses the Nvidia Ion Graphics Chip. The main reason that they did this, I'm guessing, is for battery life. Here is a query: do you really need a more expensive graphics card, like the card in the 1015pn, to run 360p streaming video on a 1024 x 600 screen? Standard features that separate the PX from other brands are the accessable RAM slot for easy upgrade (which I highly recomend buying the two GB upgrade).
For those of you who think it's brain surgery to replace RAM. It's not. Replacing RAM is like putting a tape in a tape player, a cartridge in an old Nintendo; a VHS in a VHS player. People charge to do it, but shouldn't. Youtube it, there are guys who do it in two minutes.Read more ›
1) Really solid build quality. Everything feels tight, well fit, and sturdy. The hinges snap, the power button doesn't wobble. It's well put together.
2) Although cramped, the keyboard has a fantastic tactile feel, and great response.
3) The matte finish on the outer case is a nice touch. Good fingerprint hiding abilities -- and the blue model I ordered looks great.
4) Fantastic battery life. It truly will go all day, doing routine things.
5) Excellent design in terms of venting and heat. You can actually, comfortably, use this on your lap.
6) The N570 Atom really adds some zip. Very nice update.
1) The big one: Windows 7 Starter is junk. You may as well know that going in. It's badly conceived on just about every level. Doesn't affect me, as I wiped the drive as soon as I got it, and installed Debian (which runs like silk, btw).
2) The memory. Seriously, it should just come with 2 GB installed from the start.
3) Hard drive access on the new models is a pain... I honestly can't figure out why they couldn't come up with something different, but this won't be of consequence for most users.
4) Touchpad, while generally fine, is a tad twitchy. Nothing major... just be prepared.
5) They (and I mean all netbook mfrs.) need to do something about the tiny 'shift' key on the right. It's ridiculous.Read more ›
Un-boxing my 1015px two things struck me; there is no OEM disk this time (it's learning!), and what is this funky looking cord? After a couple days of use I actually readily enjoy this new power cord compared to the old ones (and their horrible failure rate), it sticks out - of the opposite side, mind you - only half as far as the old one, and having the brick and plugs being one in the same means that when I'm up and about carrying my netbook I'm not dragging the brick all over the floor like a leashed miniature chihuahua. Awesome.
The unit itself is in the "Seashell Series" family this time 'round which makes it thinner and noticeably lighter than my 1000he, even carried with the new power cord, and it is mostly finished in a matte coating that is going to work out way better than the glossy one grease-wise. The keyboard is 99% the same, the extra buttons at top are missing (which is fine by me as I wasn't aware they did anything anyway...), and the power button is a lot more sturdy and well seated than the last one.
This brings me to my only two physical misgivings about the 1015px. The first being the mouse button bar that is fairly wobbly (I plan to add a couple of bits of air filter material at either end when I get under the hood. Hopefully that'll fix that, but why am I solving your mistakes for you Asus?). The second problem is that on the bottom of this machine, instead of the one-stop hard drive/RAM access panel, there is only clear access to the RAM. Sigh.Read more ›
