Netbook lovers rejoice! The ASUS EeePC 1000He seems to be another upgrade amidst the sheer amount of mediocre netbooks in the market.
The 1000HE model of the EeePC line is a very much welcome upgrade due to its looooong battery life of 9.5 hours according to their test using BatteryMark. The rated battery duration specifies that it is on power saving mode, 40% brightness, no Bluetooth, no WiFi, and the camera has been disabled. Usually, these rated hours by the manufacturers aren’t really the same in real life conditions. But even though you could manage to squeeze 7 hours of usage time, it is still nice for a netbook. Gone are the days that netbooks only mean portable due to their size and weight as they only last for about 2 and half hours like regular laptops, and they have to be connected to a power outlet again. With the increased battery life, portability now includes being away from an outlet. Also, it seems that the 1000HE doesn’t suffer from an extra hump below as can be seen in the photo.
Processing power is also one of the things that this netbook showcases. It has an Intel Atom N280 processor which is faster than the N270 processor. It is also equipped with a Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) technology that serves like a “nitro” button for PC. It gives the netbook extra power with a simple press. It can also tone down the processor to lengthen the battery life.
The ASUS EeePC 1000HE is already available for preorder at Amazon for just $374($25 instant preorder discount included).
