Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1005PR

60% ASUS Eee PC 1005PR

Of the three netbooks we’ve tested with the Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator, the $399 Asus Eee PC 1005PR is the best of the bunch on paper because of its longer battery life. While the less expensive HP Mini 210 gets slightly better frame rates, it has a smaller hard drive and lasts two hours less on a charge. And the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 disappoints because of its finicky touchpad. Overall, though, we’re not too convinced of Broadcom’s value. Yes, you can watch high-def video, but it’s still pretty rough compared to Ion netbooks. We also don’t like the 1005PR’s noisy keyboard. This netbook isn’t a bad deal if you want an HD screen, but if you want multimedia muscle in something highly portable we suggest that you wait for Ion 2 systems to hit the market.

In general, those who buy netbooks know their limitations, especially when it comes to high definition playback. The Asus EeePC 1005PR ships with a Broadcom decoder chip and a higher screen resolution, which address these shortcomings, but you're paying a premium for a feture that's not essential to your every day needs. I would look into the Asus EeePC 1201N if you're interested in boosting netbook performance. If you want an all-around, inexpensive netbook, the Toshiba mini NB305-N410 and HP Mini 5102 (which also has a Broadcom HD chip) are better alternatives.

Now that Asus has a solid entry in the basic $299 category with the Eee PC 1001P (previous entry-level Eee PCs were closer to $350), it's time to see what the company that essentially created the Netbook market can do with a reasonably priced premium model. A rare 10-inch system with an HD display, the Eee PC 1005PR also adds HD video playback hardware for a well-priced step-up Netbook experience.

When we associate media playback and computers, netbooks don't come to mind as the ideal merging of the two. Intel’s Pine Trail–powered portables support limited resolutions that lack support for HD video. On many netbooks, 720p videos play like slide shows, and you can forget about 1,080p. Equipped with a Broadcom Crystal HD video decoder, this competitively priced netbook offers improved Flash playback and decent battery life for users who watch a lot of video on the go.

Comment

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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).


N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


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.
