For the last 3 months, I have been enjoying the best netbook ever, the Eee PC 1000HE. It’s the very first netbook I’ve bought but I can say that there’s enough cool little features that it allows me to be practically everywhere. I am no longer stuck in my home to get my work done. A lot of times, you will find me near Ocean Beach in San Francisco, firing away more blog posts. (Yes, I do setup my tent too.)
Anyways, let me tell you “everything” you wanted to know about this little Eee PC beast.
First off, this Eee PC 1000HE has a battery life of over 5 hours. (The specs say 9 hours but I found more along 5 hours, which is still great over conventional laptops.)
Second, this Eee PC 1000HE’s touchpad is just like the iPhone, you can scroll with two fingers, zoom in and out, and more. Just this feature let’s me do things with a 1024×600 pixel screen, much faster than traditional touchpads or even an external mouse. I just love the fact that I don’t have to carry a separate mouse to get my work done fast.
Third, Eee PC 1000HE is cheap, only $383.94 on Amazon. I don’t have to worry if I drop it or lose it, I can always get another one as it’s about the price of an iPhone.
If you are a road warrior, I highly recommend you to get one of these for those short trips where you do not need a full-fledged laptop. I also carry a Sprint USB broadband modem, which lets me connect to the internet practically everywhere I go where there’s a cellular connection.
Every one of my friends I have showed my netbook to are amazed and more amazed when I tell them how much I bought it for.
I even took it to Disneyland last month, all blogging away while I waited to take pictures with Mickey Mouse. Yes, you can actually computer while walking too because it weighs only 3.2 pounds.
This IS the best netbook on the market right now. ASUS practically “invented” netbooks and I don’t see how you can go wrong with this one.
I plan on actually getting a couple more, 1 for my bedroom, 1 for my bathroom, and another one for couch-surfing.
Price: $383.94 on Amazon
