Asus Eee PC 1001HA Seashell
Advantages: Small, good battery life, easy to use and ready to connect to the internet anywhere
Disadvantages: I honestly cant think of any
This is a brilliant netbook that is good at all the things it should be:
It is small
It is lightweight
It is fast
and it can connect to the internet anywhere, anytime, anyplace as long as there is a connection nearby.
The Eee PC Netbook is very simple and easy to use; all of the menus are set out so they are easy to understand and manoevere your way around and even the shrunk keypad is very easy to use and the buttons are surprisingly quite large so even those of us with larger fingers will be able to use this laptop with ease. The touchpad again is very easy to use and even those of us that are making the switch from computers to this notebook will have got the hang of it in seconds. This laptop really is that easy to use.
The built in wireless connection in this netbook also makes if easy and almost effortless to connecto to the internet, you turn on your Eee PC Notebook, it picks up all the local network connections and you select which one you want to connect to.
As with everything else this notebook does requite charging for 12 hours before use but so do most things that are battery powered these days so it ca be forgiven for this. Pick up your notebook get home, put it on charge, go to sleep and use it the next day when it is fully charged. Unlike most other netbook's and laptop's this ones charge lasts more than 2 hours !! I fully charged my notebook the day I got it and after the recommended 12 hours charging time it had 3 and a half hours battery life and this didnt drop drastically as I loaded the internet the battery actually lasts that ammount of time. Dont fret, if you didnt manage to save your work etc before the battery appears to die because the notebook puts itself into a standby mode meaning as soon as you get home and put the notebook on charge you are ready and rearing ro go again as soon as you have logged back in.
This is an all round great notebook that doesn't have any faults other than its relatively small memory size but it is a notebook so its not supposed to be used all the time as a main computer so it again can be forgiven for this. If memory really doea become a problem then it may be worth investing in an external hard-drive, this immeadiately resolves the problem, but to be honest I use my netbook for college and I havent had a problem with the memory yet.
Summary: A brilliant notebook that I would recommend without hesitation
