Nice price for this, but has been bouncing around £260 on ebuyer for ages tbh. For some reason its also £15 more in black?! http://www.amazon.co.uk/1000H-BLK067X-Netbook-Windows-Preloaded-160GB/dp/B001J2YZ04/

Saying that, any ten incher with XP and a 6-cell battery for less than £250 is hot!

"Unique design to fit your individual personality" - what a brilliant feature ;-)

To be honest, I'm not buying into this netbook hype, yet!

If I am to buy a netbook, I would insist on the following features:
1. A higher screen resolution, 1024 x 600 is just not enough even for web and email only.

2. Built-in 3G, let's be honest here, you buy this to use outside home and/or if you travel a lot so Wi-Fi is not enough. I've had a BT Opernzone subscription and in 90% of the places I've been to I found Cloud, T-Mobile, ...etc so chances are very little that you'll find a wi-fi zone whenever you need internet access outside home. 3G is just everywhere, even overseas.

3. Light-weight. This, to me, means < 1kg. At 1.45kg I think this is like carrying a brick around and not much different to a descent 13" laptop.

4. Price mark around £150 or less.

+ all the usual features of course, card reader, SSD hard drive,...etc.

I'm not voting either cold or hot as I honestly don't know whether this is a good deal or not.

The 1000HE has an Intel Atom 280 processor instead of the 270 & longer battery life by the looks. Other than that can't see any other major differences.

FYI, Asus started all these Netbook things...

Eee PC was the very first NetBook designed for light users... (Obviously not this model)

So, they actually have a lot of experience with regards to netbook design... you will notice more once you opened the casing... position of some of the components are quite clever... to avoid overheating

Pretty decent deal I think. Heat added....

However when a PC company says "* Unique design to fit your individual personality" when referring to a mass-produced slab of white plastic, then I have an overwhelming urge to punch a marketing person in the face. That'll give them a unique facial design, fitting my individual personality.........

That aside, good spot. :thumbsup:

People who leave stupid comments like 'worst laptop ever made' should be banned from here.. At least give a reason otherwise it sounds like you're just saying that to cause trouble.

I've been holding off buying a netbook for a while now, to see how much they come down in price. http://crave.cnet.co.uk/laptops/0,39029450,49297248-11,00.htm This top-10 netbooks showdown lists the 1000HE as #1. If the only difference is a slightly better cpu and battery, then I have no reason to doubt that this is a great netbook also.. infact this exact model is the one I've been hoping to see on here, since the HE is always gonna be *just* out of my price range.

Can anyone else confirm the difference between this model, and the 1000HE? It's not really my field so It's a tough one to judge. If the track pad/keyboard, screen etc is all the same then I'll no doubt buy this.

1000HE also has a " revamped keyboard, which finally puts the right Shift key where it belongs, makes a world of difference in terms of usability for touch typists" Laptopmag
#22
Yeah I just did some reading. Seems like the two major differences between the 'Top ranked Netbook - 1000HE' and this model, is a better 6-cell battery, and the keyboard has been given slightly more surface area due to less bevel, and the right- shift key being in a better location. The latter doesn't matter to me as I don't touch-type anyway. This version also has a very good 6-cell battery that averaged at 5-6 hours with 'typical use'.

The processor is also slightly better in the 1000HE. Here is a summary of some basic tests that were done, comparing the 1000HE model, and the 1000H:

The Eee PC 1000HE features Intel's updated Atom N280 processor. Though it runs at 1.66GHz, just a hair faster than the N270 (which runs at 1.6GHz), it bumps the front-side bus speed from 533MHz to 667MHz. Our tests did show a noticeable speed improvement over N270-powered notebooks. The Eee PC 1000HE completed our Windows Media Encoder (WME) render in 22 minutes and 11 seconds, and our iTunes music conversion test in 17 minutes and 37 seconds. This is significantly faster than the Atom N270-powered 1000H, which turned in times of 28 minutes and 10 seconds and 22 minutes and 15 seconds, respectively. Also, these are very good scores when you compare them to the average for the netbook category as whole (31 minutes and 23 seconds for WME and 25 minutes and 35 seconds for iTunes).


Again, that quote is compraring this netbook to the model above.. you WILL NOT be getting the updated N280 in this netbook. For me, it's only a minor difference. I have a pc to do all the heavy work.

In summary, I'm convinced that this is going to be a very good netbook if the 1000HE is out of your price range. Unless you really NEED to have a battery life of 6 hours and upwards, or need the right-shift key to be in a better location for touch typing, then this will be a good buy. The processor speed really shouldn't make much of a difference.

Sorry to keep posting, but here's a review from computershopper.com

Asus launched the “netbook” category—diminutive notebooks primarily intended for on-the-go Web surfing and communication—with its popular Eee PC 4G. That machine offered maximum portability but was severely lacking in power, storage, and typing comfort. Competitors quickly jumped on the bandwagon with bigger, more powerful netbooks such as the MSI Wind U100 and the Acer Aspire One. Now, Asus has fired back with the Eee PC 1000H, a bigger, more powerful unit that adds a touch-typable keyboard, a better screen, a larger hard drive, and faster performance to the successful Eee formula.

The machine is definitely the heavyweight of the netbook category, measuring 1.5 inches high at its thickest point, 10.47 inches wide, and 7.53 inches deep, and weighing in at 3.2 pounds (with six-cell battery). That said, it’s still closer in size and heft to other netbooks than to full-featured ultraportables, and its eminently more portable than standard-size notebooks.

The extra size buys you some real advantages, such as a bright, 10-inch 1,024x600-pixel LED-backlit screen and a larger keyboard and touch pad. The keyboard is big enough that even those of us with large fingers can touch-type at full speed. Overall, the layout is excellent, with one misstep: The up-arrow key sits between the right Shift key and the forward slash, which might cause some unwanted cursor movements until you get used to the odd placement. The touch pad is excellent, with multitouch support for scrolling and zooming in applications such as Windows Live Photo Gallery. The buttons are well-placed, but ridiculously stiff—we found ourselves tapping the pad to click and select instead.

The Eee PC 1000H uses Intel’s new Atom N270 low-power mobile processor. This hyper-threading processor is very responsive for everyday office applications and basic multitasking. The 1GB of RAM is sufficient for running the OS, Windows XP Home, and most tasks; you can expand it to 2GB by removing the existing memory and replacing it with a 2GB DDR2 SODIMM.

The Eee PC 1000H scored 145 in our Cinebench 9.5 test, compared with 127 for the MSI Wind and a mere 23 for the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC. The Eee PC 1000H has basic 3D capabilities courtesy of its Intel 945 chipset, but it’s best suited for older 3D games and graphics-light strategy titles such as Galactic Civilizations II.

The Eee PC 1000H’s audio, meanwhile, is the best we’ve heard from a netbook. The system features Dolby Sound Room technology, and while its maximum volume won’t damage anyone’s eardrums, the clarity and volume level is much better than what the MSI Wind’s anemic speakers provide, making it a viable entertainment center when you’re on the road.

There are lots of other handy features. The Asus Eee PC Tray Utility lets you enable or disable the 801.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios, and the 1.3-megapixel Webcam, by pressing dedicated function keys. You can also cycle the CPU between a 1.2GHz power-saving mode, the stock 1.6GHz clock speed, an overclocked 1.8GHz “Super Performance” mode, or automatic power savings. Finally, you can toggle the screen resolution between 800x600, 1,024x600, 1,024x768 scrolling, and a 1,024x768 “LCD Compress” mode that drops pixels to fit the larger image onscreen. The latter two modes, which we haven’t seen yet on competing netbooks, are handy for legacy applications and games that don’t support the native 1,024x600 resolution.

Storage is also generous. The Eee PC 1000H we tested features an 80GB, 5,400 RPM Seagate Momentus hard drive, which can be expanded using the SDHC memory-card slot and three USB ports. (The Linux-based Eee PC 1000 sports a 40GB flash drive.) Expansion is rounded out by a 10/100 Ethernet port, VGA-out, and headphone and microphone jacks.

As for power, the Eee PC 1000H includes a six-cell battery that Asus claims offers up to 7 hours of battery life. We never reached that level of longevity: The lack of an optical drive prevented us from running our usual DVD-rundown test, but the Eee lasted 5 hours and 48 minutes on a cross-country flight, doing a variety of tasks with Wi-Fi disabled. In more typical usage with Wi-Fi enabled, we averaged about 4 hours and 45 minutes per charge.

Overall, the design, performance, and ergonomics are very close to the MSI Wind. The Eee PC 1000H is slightly larger, but its superior utility software, multitouch touch pad, excellent audio, and easier upgradability give it an edge.

I think I posted the black one 6 weeks ago now at a very similar price to any first time Bennetts buyers and it didn't seem to float many boats, unless the one I posted was a duffer!

Thanks gogboy, I'd prefer the black one. However, I'm unsure as to how you go about getting the 10% discount. Can't see anything on the home page.

What on earth is with the daft comments in here?

This is a superb spec compared to some of the competition, the battery life alone makes it one of the best.

What are people comparing this to exactly? because the nearest I can find is the Samsung NC10s which are a fair few quid more. :roll:

You don't want much, do you? :-D

Agree with the usefulness of your point #2. For the rest, totally unrealistic. Large high resolution screen and low price, low weight are incompatible. 3G and low price are incompatible.

Re-designed keyboard. Very Macbook'ish and alot better than the 1000H most reckon.

Bigger battery, yep. 1000H has a 6600mAh and the 1000HE has a 8700mAh IIRC. Claims to give 8-9hours battery life, but again, from what I've seen/heard, the improvement is marginal.

Also has the N280. 60MHz faster than the N270 in the 1000H. Doubt you'd notice the difference tbh. All the little improvements are nice, I'd maybe spend the extra £50 for them, but you pays your money, you takes your choice... and probably end up with a Saumsung NC10 lol!

This was 6 weeks ago so not sure if it's something they do all the time but I think it might.

Go to the homepage and register, with me they sent an email with code for the 10% discount.

Hope it works for you, they also have a buy now pay later deal, not sure the ins and outs of that but might be worth a look if funds are tight

To be honest, this is pretty much the same Laptop as the version that costs £50 more. UNLESS you need the keyboard to be as close as perfect as it can get for touch-typing, and will really need the extra battery time (bearing in mind that this 1000H version averaged at nearly 6 hours under typical load), then you really won't be losing out on anything by saving yourself the £50.

I personally don't touch type, won't be requiring an extended battery time of more than 5-6 hours, can't see any reason why I'd see an improvent with the slightly faster cpu, but would love the saving of £50 :D I bought a value system from overclockers.co.uk for £250 that gace me an Athlon XP 7850, 4GB Kingston HyperX ram, 500GB hdd etc.. all highy quality components, along with a Dell monitor that was featured on this site the other week. If I was to get this netbook, I'd have spent a grand total of £635, which is an excellent deal for a widescreen HD monitor/TV (if I use my tv card), powerful pc for general use, and a very well equipt netbook that I can take around with me and use for hours on end. Beats and single laptop or PC combo imo.

I bought this in black from Amazon for my daughter a few weeks ago when it was on offer for £245. Screen was scarred with vertical lines straight out of the box so had to return it. Reviews on Amazon suggest I'm not the first to experience problems from the outset.

Amazon were unable to offer a replacement but I tracked it down at ebuyer for £249 so bought it again. No problems with the new one though.

This is a great machine and we're very pleased with it. The lack of an optical drive is a bit of a pain at times - installing music onto iTunes means ripping it onto a portable hard drive first (as we don't have an external optical drive) but that's a small price to pay, and is one of the main sacrifices you have to make with a netbook anyway.

It boots up quickly, although that was slowed down a bit when I installed McAfee, but is still quicker to start than my laptop.

The screen is a decent size for a notebook - we looked around before plumping for 10" as, for our purposes, it offers the best compromise between visibility and overall size of the netbook. It is of course horses for courses though, if portability is your top priority then a smaller screen would be better.

:? I'm not surprised. Commercial Anti-Virus applications these days seem to expect top spec machines to run!
Try installing Avira instead (apparently it is a bit lighter than the rest and is free) and remove any components you might not need, it will kill the system otherwise :-(

I've just bought the Asus and will probably go for an external CD/DVD drive later.
Just browsing Amazon and I saw a CD drive on there from about £18 if your interested.
