Features and Performance
The Asus Eee PC 1000 features a 10-inch backlit screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels (WSVGA). The netbook comes with a 1.6Mhz Atom processor, 160Gb hard disk, and a 6-cell battery. Furthermore, it has a 40GB Solid State Drive (SSD) storage and 60GB Eee Storage. And, with 1GB of RAM, it is a good portable PC for mobile users as it can offer high-speed connectivity to the Internet (for doing work, checking emails, chatting, navigating Web sites, and so on).
Here are some other features the Asus Eee PC 1000 includes: tri-mode Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g/n) and integrated Bluetooth connectivity. It even comes with a 1.3-megapixel webcam and USB ports- to support flash drives, memory sticks, and external disk drives. In addition, there is a VGA output for connecting to a monitor.
The performance of the Eee PC is really great. It takes less than a minute to boot up and less time to shutdown; it takes less than 30 seconds for an application to completely load. Note that the netbook's Intel's Atom processor isn't that fast, but it will work well for users interested in web browsing, IM chatter, email, word processing, and a little spreadsheet work.
