Product Details and Features
Both models of the ASUS Eee PC 1001 PXD come complete with Windows 7. They are powered by and an Intel Atom N455 processor (1.66 GHz) and Intel GMA 3150 integrated graphics. A 1GB DDR3 RAM (max 2GB, 1 slot) and 250 GB hard drive is also included. The netbooks have a 10.1 inch WSVGA Matte Finish LED backlit screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution. Also included is Wireless-N Wi-Fi, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a 0.3 megapixel webcam. The MU17 comes with an impressive 6-cell 48Wh battery and the EU17 comes with a 3-cell 23Wh battery.
The ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD not only looks good, but it also manages to pack quite a lot into its sleek form. For surfing the web, Skype calls and day-to-day use, it’s sufficient in power to meet your demands. The webcam and built in microphone are good enough to support quality calls. There’s an SD card slot on the side so it’s easy to import your pictures onto the machine without having to use the USB cord.
The ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD has a fantastic battery life averaging around 8 hours on a full charge. This is great as you don’t need to worry about the netbook dying in the middle of a class whilst taking notes and you also don’t need to worry about carrying a charger around with you.
You may not find that the 1GB of RAM is sufficient for your needs but if you wish, you can upgrade it to 2GB. Some have also found that the speakers can sound a bit ‘tinny’ but when considering the size of the computer, this is hardly surprising. The sound quality will be far better through headphones. It also only has two USB ports when most netbooks have three USB ports.
The ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD comes loaded with some software that you may not deem necessary, so you might have to do some uninstalling before you get to work. The machine comes with a very basic version of office, supplying you with Word and Excel only. This is enough for a lot of people but if you’re using it for business purposes, this might not be sufficient for your needs.
The ASUS Eee PC 1001PXD machine is arguably very portable and very efficient so for what it costs, it’s a great deal. It is light enough to carry around without feeling weighed down and the battery life – especially on the MU17 – will support you throughout your working day. If you’re looking for a machine on which you can do some lightweight out-and-about browsing, then this is the machine for you. If you need something with a little more power and capability, you might need to go for a high-end machine – which will cost you more, naturally.
