Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1015B-MU17

40% ASUS Eee PC 1015B Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ASUS Eee PC 1015B proves that AMD can play in the netbook space, and this machine certainly benchmarks better in the graphics department than most Intel Atom-powered machines. However, for just $20 more you can get the 1015PEM, which offers a faster dual-core processor and two more hours of battery life. This $279 netbook is worth a look, but it's not the best value.

30% ASUS Eee PC 1015b Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The ASUS Eee PC 1015b's main attraction is its $289.99 price point; this is one of the most inexpensive netbooks on the market with Windows 7. Even at this price, however, the 1015b is tough to recommend. The number one concern is usability; it is simply not there. The small screen and its low resolution, the limited functionality of Windows 7 Starter Edition, and the exceptionally sluggish performance of the AMD C-30 processor and 1GB of RAM make computing a frustrating experience. The keyboard is easy to type on but rattles; the touchpad’s buttons are too loud; the build quality could be better; lastly, the small fan makes too much noise. Spending another $50-150 can buy much-needed improvements in all of the areas mentioned above. Unless price is a paramount concern, there are better choices out there.

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.
