This week I got a new netbook. An Asus Eee PC 1000. It’s great because it’s very light (just 1 kilo), and easy to bring along. I chose this one because of the great reviews that it got.
The screen is 10 inches, it has 1 gig of memory, a 160 gig hard drive, 802.11n Wifi, and a 1.66ghz processor. Good for what I use PCs for (internet, media, etc.).
Plus the really great part is the battery last for around 7 hours. It’s the first time I’ve used a laptop that didn’t have to be plugged in after an hour. It had Windows XP in only Japanese on it, but some hackery on my part fixed that up and now it’s completely in English. The best part is, it only cost me 30,000yen ($300)! How can you beat that.
