The ASUS EEE PC 1000HE is a late model netbook from the original netbook company ASUS.  Features include:

  • 10.1" Screen (1024x600 resolution)
  • 9.5 hours of battery life
  • lightweight and portable
  • bluetooth
  • webcam
  • 160GB hard drive
  • 1 Gig of ram
  • Windows XP
 You may thing the screen is small at first, but it's perfectly fine for everyday usage.  The only caveats would be graphic and video editing.  These functions are possible, but the screen size will have you scrolling and scrolling and scrolling...

The battery life on this machine is great for anyone who hates to carry an ac adapter around.  Unless you are going out of town you can usually leave the ac adapter at home and still have plenty of battery life for the whole day.

The webcam, bluetooth, and hard drive are all standard among most netbooks these days, however, if you are not a fan of Windows 7 then this would be a great purchase for you since it comes with and supports Windows XP and supports it well.  However, if you do like Windows 7, this operating system, as well as linux, is also supported and functions well.

Why pick this model up over newer models?  Here's a list:

  1. Windows XP by default
  2. Hard drive and ram are easily accessible and upgradable
  3. Older models are cheaper than newer model netbooks yet have the same performance level
 Give this model a try if you need a netbook, it wont let you down.
