Fantastic netbook with 40GB SSD - not hard drive.
1000 is the top of the range version.
1000H has 80gb hard drive and windows, but is limited to 1GB of ram (but is strangely more expensive at ebuyer...)
( http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/laptops/2008/08/25/asus-eee-pc-1000/1 ).

Good price, would prefer NC10 though for a few pounds more. Heat from me.

Wow 40gb Ssd!!!

nice :thumbsup:

I am looking for something like this - BUT - I think we will hit deflation from March/April after the February credit card bills from Christmas hit the mat.

I can wait!

HOT otherwise

Good price, thanks qpan :thumbsup:

NC10 still beats this in everything.

I prefer the Asus models to the NC10. I have a 901 (running Ubuntu) and it's the bees-knees.

Sorry, voted only warm, since it's been this price on Amazon for ages:-

And definitely agree the NC-10 for a few pounds more is a far better machine. (I tried both and bought an NC-10 which is by far the best netbook I've ever owned - and I've been through many!)

You are wrong. It has a 40GB SSD drive, which is way better than 160GB harddrive.
Great price.

Thanks for that, still hoping for it to go a little cheaper still......:p

unless you have over 40gb of data :)

Whilst the the Asus Eee PC 1000H may not be as svelte as the NC10 - it has a better screen and speakers!

Also many NC10 owners have the blotchy screen problem - search for NC10 blotch and be afraid!

I'd like to see the benchmarks that prove that statement.

Please stop tempting!

compare this to the Acer Aspire One which lasts around 2 hours


I have an Aspire One, it lasts around 3 hours actually.

With regard to an SSD being better than a HD, it's certainly not better in terms of speed, but it is perhaps more suited to a portable machine due to its durability.

This machine is too big for a netbook imo, it's almost the size of a normal laptop. Save some money and get an Aspire One, or go for the NC10 if you need the longer battery life.

Don't SSD drives have a limited number of writes?

Eh ?

You must have missed the pound yesterday being at it's lowest level for 25 years against the dollar.

Imported electricals like this are only going up in price - and it's likely to be a substantial rise.

Yeah, but these days they're good enough that you're unlikely to wear them out before you replace the laptop. The main problem is that SSDs are slower and tend to have less capacity, yet cost more.

The only real advantage is they have no moving parts, which is kinda nice for a portable machine as it's less likely to get broken if you throw the machine around.

I see a lot of comparisons here with other netbooks, i think i'm quite qualified to talk here as I have the eee 1000H, wife has the NC10 and my son has an aspire one.

To say the 1000h is almost the size of a normal laptop is nonsense, it's only just bigger and slightly heavier than the NC10. Battery life is on par with the NC10, getting around 5 hours in power saving mode. The screen, imho, is better than the NC10, seems brighter and less washed out. Also as mentioned before it has better speakers, they're not brilliant but not as tinny as an NC10 or Aspire One. It's also easily upgradable, adding memory or a bigger hard drive is very easy (added 2gb memory and a 320gb hd to mine a couple of days ago) , unlike the aspire one where you have to take the unit apart. As an added bonus it also comes with wireless-n, although I doubt at the moment many would take advantage of this, but at least it's there.

Don't get me wrong, I think all three machines are great, but I'm quite happy with my 1000h and think I made the right chioce when buying it.

Doesn't always work like that as the price of electricals in pounds did not fall when the pound was at its strongest. In fact, converting the price to euros and dollars and after allowing for vagaries in tax the price of electricals in the UK was often much higher leading to the "Rip-Off Britain" tag.
Even if the component cost of electricals rises because of the unfavourable dollar exchange rate, Asus et al can only price their products at what the market here will sustain. The relative price in stronger economies may rise to compensate, i.e. Rip-Off Britain will probably become Rip-Off Some Other Country.

Which in turn is slightly bigger and heavier than the Aspire One etc... I guess it all depends what you want the machine for. I wanted something I could just sling in a bag, rather than lug around like a laptop, and for this the Aspire One only just qualified - I certainly wouldn't want anything bigger.

True to some extent but what the manufacturers are already doing is producing cheaper items - look at Acer whole new ranges of cheaper laptops. They hope people will not fully understand how much lower spec they are getting and still think its a good deal.

If the pound falls too far some manufacturers will simply either sell cheap and nasty or top end stuff where the purchaser wants the best and cost is not such an important factor

Acouple of things that as an owner of an eeepc 1000H i should clarify.
The Ram Memory is not limited to a 1 Gb. It cmes with 1 Gb, but it is the easiest thing to upgrade to 2 Gb of ram,(and fairily cheap tp, i did mine for £14.00)
As mentioned before in comparison with the NC10, it has better screen (which believe me on a 10" screen you really apreciate) and better sound to. It has same graphics, cpu, and even better battery life (i get 6 hours out of it without any problems. So can anyone tell me why suppose the NC10 be better?
#26
Just add that is not just me who has this kind of opinion. Check this forum if you are interested in buying it http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=53960 One thing that i should mention that this offer is for the SSd model (not hard drive) the problem you will find is that the SSD Model that comes with (apart of being a really shy 40 GB) is not fast at all (i didnt want to say it is slow, but it is). In comparison with the eee model with hard drive is even i abit more slow. If you want to buy a faster SSD (and maybe bigger) be prepare to forecast around the £160 figure for fast drives. If you do that , this notebook is unbeatable exepct for one reason... Its price would make it really unatractive.

Ah, ok, cool, glad to see the RAM is upgradable to 2gb, I had got that info from the first review (bit-tech) but they were probably misinformed. True, the 1000 SSD is slower than the 1000H hard drive, but only in writing - reading is equally as fast. You get the benefits of shock proof, however, and many of the reviews for the SSD version of the eeepc 1000 showed an impressive 8 hour battery life (none of the HD versions have acheived this).

The trackpad buttons on the 1000 are better than the NC10 as they are actually two buttons as opposed to the single button on the NC10 (which still acts as two mouse buttons - you can press each side individually).

I really do wish they had touchscreen netbooks already... I hate using trackpads! Have an archos 605wifi portable media player with a touchscreen, and its such a great way to browse the internet!

There are many benefits to an SSD over a HDD - we have an NC10, Wind and Aspire One in our house, and we did have an EEE 701 aswell.

An SSD doesn't have any moving parts, that is correct, which also means it's allot more durable. It also means that you get better battery life because its solid state, and should run cooler too. Furthermore, read speeds are usually quicker as you don't have to wait for the optical disc to be read. You won't get any longer battery time because during the time when a HDD is spinning, the processor is idling, whereas with the SSD there is less power required to access the data yet the processor is always working because there is next to no wait time. So you don't get much better battery life, but you spend less time sitting around waiting for stuff to happen if you see what i mean. Generally, the Aspire One SSD boots the Linpus OS nearly 10 seconds quicker than the HDD version, which doesn't sound like a lot but it does this in 20 seconds so it is a considerable difference.

It's not all good news though; read times are fast, but write times are allot slower. Your operating system will move page files out of RAM onto your SSD/HDD when you start to run out of memory, and with an SSD this can slow things right down. Also, because it's so expensive you don't get much cpacity for your money.

Personally, i think an SSD is a good choice - i run Linux so i can adjust how agressively the OS swaps page files out of RAM. I'm safe in the knowledge that my netbook is efficient, unlikely to break and the storage limitations are of no concern because everything is on my server.

Just don't go SSD if you plan on running Windows, it doesn't play nicely with them at all.:w00t:
