Reviews for the Asus EEE PC 1015PED
Asus Eee PC Netbooks have diversified into a sometimes numbing range of options, but when they're boiled down, most of them have nearly the same components. Case in point: the Asus Eee PC 1015PED. The Asus Eee PC 1015PED is the definition of standard 10-inch Netbook, with little to distinguish it despite its solid overall performance: we've seen it all before.

This stylish netbook has great battery life, but it doesn't handle high-definition video well.

All in all, the Asus EEE PC 1015PED is right now on of the best mainstream 10 inchers. And by mainstream I mean devices with great features/price ratios. It is also a part of the best 10 inch netbooks list here on the site, where you can check out the other top picks available at the moment. Like you can see, this is not exactly a review of the 1015PED as this particular version is not actually available in my country yet. Still, I'm trying to get my hands on one of them and in the mean time, you can see the reviews it scored with buyers via this link.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
N475: Upcoming Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated DDR3 memory controller (as the difference to the N470 with DDR2) and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the CPU should be only minimally faster than a current Atom Z450 with 1.86 GHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
