6 cell battery on PCWorld website spec

mumbojumbo
This sounded good with a 6-cell battery, but looking at the reviews the 1001HA only comes with a 3-cell battery and has been £199 from a few places for a while. It's the upgraded 1001P version that is supposed to have the longer battery, faster CPU and Windows 7 Starter.


According to PC World specs page it's a 6 cell.

Or £199.97 with Windows XP until midnight tonight from Simply Asus:

Near perfect Hackintosh material (http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/12/17/osx-netbook-compatib.html)

Change the wireless card for a dell abn at a cost of around £12 and you're there!

The 1008HA at £229 is an excellent price particularly as it comes with Win7 Starter.. that is the OS of choice for Netbooks in my view.

I think the 1001HA is an older model now, superseded by the 1005HA. My son has a 1005HA and it is great... I paid about £259 with Win7 from Amazon. It is recommended by PCPRO in second place for a netbook behind the Samsung.

The 1008HA has a few improvements on the 1005HA - I think the screen is less reflective for one thing, webcam is better... but it has 1 less USB socket.

The CW website doesn't say which Atom processor it is, as the 1008 can come with rthe N270 or N280. I dont think there is much tangable difference in performance though.

BTW: All these N270/N280 based netbooks from all makes are being reduced beause the Atom N450 range is coming out to replace it.

The Asus range are VERY good netbooks though, the keyboard is very comforable, and surprisingly the N270 can play some pretty decent games including World of Warcarft... naturally it wont play COD4 etc. Gret screen for internet though, and battery life is also very good.

Thought about the 1008ha but its got a built in 3 cell battery ,good for about 4-5 hours.

Hello Queeg... There are many Asus model & configs. seom with 3 cell, 6cell etc.. some with 0.3Mp webcam, other 1.3MP - you have to be really careful what you order. Dont think that the first one you see the "the standard spec." for a 1008HA - it isn't. If you hunt around there are 1008HA with 6 cell battery, not 3 cell, it's all in the Asus Part-no.

If you bought the 1005HA you wont be disappointed, the differences are very small.
#11
Naive Q but do any of these models 1001/5/8 have DVD drives - thats all my 13 yr old cousins gonna do - play movies :-)
#12
I don't think any of the netbooks under 11" have optical drives unfortunately. I could be wrong though.

Yes ive found out during my research about the different specs! Thought about the one at carphonewarehouse but it is 3 cell and non removable, which put me off as batteries do wear out.
The 1005ha is on the van now, so ill just put it down to bad luck,as i dont fancy sending it back.I agree with you that i wont be dissapointed as it seems like the longest battery life for the money,which is my main need.Also im fed up of looking!

Strictly speaking, if its got an optical drive its not really a netbook. Im sure ill get corrected though!
#15
No DVD drives (due to size/space/weight), you have to buy an external USB drive (about £39). However most people use a netbook as their second PC. So if you have a normal PC with a DVD Writer, just buy yourself a 16-32GB memory stick and store a few films on that from your nomal PC... then you can watch them on your netbook (subject to O/S and DVD playing software). Win 7 starter Edition does not natively support DVD playback, but you can get many other (free) DVD playback s/w packages - some even come bundled with the netbook.

need some fast advice.....

Have just ordered the Toshiba NB200 n270 for £250 then will claim back £50 but had been considering the 1001ha for some time. Could cancel the Tosh.....and it has cost me £9.74 for next day delivery.

Which should I get as Im very tempted by this deal?

I picked up my NB200 around 3 weeks ago to replace an aging Aspire one, and it's an excellent machine. Win 7 works well on it, and i have a second partition running snow leopard nicely (after changing the wireless card).

More than pleased with it - i picked up the N280, however there's very little difference in speed.

If you;re after a cheap case that actually fits, grab a 10.1" Technika neoprene from Tesco for £8. My tosh has the larger battery, meaning that the standard 10.1 cases dont fit!

IMO the Tosh is up there with the Dell's and the N140's.

Oooh fate stepped in and decision has be made for me - order for Tosh was just cancelled as they received card authorisation but cannot deliver to my work address (not where my card is registered)? Not had a problem before with other retailers. Ah well!

Off to PC World after work.....thanks op. Have some rep

Dont think you will be sorry,im typing this on my old asus 904hd which has been a cracking buy.
#21
Does this come with a case/sleeve. Ive read some Asus netbooks come with one packaged (1008 i think) which would save a lot of chaffin around.

Also could these beasts play RTW or anything half-decent?

Cheers:?
#22
Sorry to hijack but this netbook will be ok running this right ? Ive read that I can download ASIO4ALL which will help....?

I have the 1005HA version with the 6 cell battery and it is an awesome little machine. But battery life is around 6.5 hours when surfing the net and actually doing something, which is still awesome.

Medion is the make that is sold in Aldi and usually comes with a three year guarantee.

Mine, an e1210 (I think), had a number of problems in months 10 & 11 I had to return it. I wouldn't rush back to buy another one unless it had a 2/3 yr warranty..

Well I went to PC-World Farnborough after work and they said they had no stock?
[COLOR="Blue"]"Uh I reserved online"?[/COLOR]
"yea we did try and ring to say we was out of stock"
[COLOR="Blue"]"Right...so when you getting more. Let me guess you dont know"[/COLOR]
"No, thats upto head office"
[COLOR="Navy"]"So you can get me one from another store"[/COLOR]
"No, we cant allocate stock between store - we can sell you a different laptop"
[COLOR="Navy"]"For the same price"?[/COLOR]
"No"
Walks out door.....

Phoned up customer services to have a moan and they let me know there was stock at my local Currys and reserved me one there and then which was ok with me as Im very close to Currys Farnborough.

Using my 1001ha now, runs my music software so Im chuffed. Build is good but was gutted when I booted up for the first time as XP was corrupt but got it sorted in the end (it was missing a startup file). Gonna have to look into a decent backup as no XP disc has been provided?

Thoughts:

Pretty fast machine - Ive got a dual core Inspirion 6400 and the 1001 doesnt seem that much slower.

Not very impressed with screen, this is because Im used to gloss screens so it looks kinda grainy - like its abit dusty/dirty. But it does tilt nicely - didn't think Id like the hinge design but it angles quite nicely.

Im glad the keyboard doesnt flex like the other models of Asus Ive tryed instores. Its pretty solid with ok action.

And the deal clincher for me is the finish - its not gloss! I have greasy skin (unfortunatly) so any gloss tech like the iphone needs a constant clean if I use it so the carbon style plastic is good. And the crappy system stickers all came off clean as well as they've clearly not bonded very well with finish.

Overall pleased with purchase. Thanks again OP
