Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM

Nuclear Fission. In the Eee PC 1015PEM, Asus presents its first netbook with Intel's new Atom N55 dual core processor. More power for a surcharge of only 20 euro? We've put the new components and the netbook through its paces.
An Asus Dual-Core Netbook
Source: Gadgetspeak English
A new netbook from Asus comes with two "firsts". One was to do with Asus while the other was a first for me. Overall I was impressed with the performance of the Eee1015PEM. It is a handy unit for those who are constantly on the move. The dual environment and use of USB 3.0 are big pluses and easily outweigh the slight discomfort I feel when using the netbook on my lap.

If you are looking for a netbook with long battery life and above average performance, the ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM is certainly the netbook to consider. It does come with a higher price tag with street prices of roughly $350 but for just a bit more money, it comes with a dual core processor considerably above average running times and a very attractive design.

70% Asus Eee PC Seashell 1015PEM review
Source: Pocket Lint English
A dual core Atom isn’t quite as impressive as you might expect, and we’d like to see faster graphics paired with it to improve the HD video performance. And while they keep the price low, the relatively slow hard drive and small amount of memory don’t let the Eee PC 1015PEM shine the way we’d expect it to, so it doesn’t break out of the netbook mould. If we were being picky we'd say it's a little heavier than we expected and we don't love the keyboard, the wrist rest or the sharp edges of the indicator lights scratching at our wrists. But these are quibbles; it's great to see USB 3 on a netbook, the battery life is very good and at this price the combination is great value.

ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM: A Lightweight Companion
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM is priced at Rs. 20,999, which is decent for a dual core processor netbook. You don’t get a whole lot more for the additional price but at the same time, it’s not much more than a single core processor netbook. We like the nifty features that ASUS has put into this product but a slightly updated design would be good to see.

The Asus Eee PC Seashell 1015PEM netbook is a mix of style and cutting-edge technology, let down by the installed Windows 7 Starter operating system and insufficient system memory. A good Intel Atom-based netbook. Not suitable as a business system as sold, but tweaks, such as ditching Windows Starter Edition and adding an extra 1GB of system memory, would redress this. USB 3.0 ports give much faster file transfer to USB Flash drives.

Asus Eee PC 1015PEM review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Asus Eee PC 1015PEM netbook sells for a price of £301. It's definitely not the cheapest netbook out there, but it's hardly expensive. The Eee PC 1015PEM packs in a dual-core Atom N550 processor and comes with some noteworthy features such as online storage, a quick-boot OS and a matt screen. However, it only has 1GB of RAM, and its battery life is below par compared to other netbooks in our Top 5 Netbooks list. More importantly, the dual-core Atom N550 doesn't offer any significant performance bump compared to the older single-core Atom N450 processor. Nonetheless, consider the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM for its features, if you're looking to buy a netbook right now.

The Asus Eee PC 1015PEM netbook sells for a price of Rs. 20,999. It's definitely not the cheapest netbook out there, nor is it downright expensive. The Eee PC 1015PEM packs in a dual-core Atom N550 processor and comes with some noteworthy features like online web storage, quick-boot OS (like HP Mini 210-1095tu), and a matte screen. However, it only has 1GB of RAM, its battery life is below-par compared to other netbooks in our Top 5 Netbooks list -- Dell Inspiron Mini 10, MSI Wind U160 and Acer Aspire One D255. More importantly the dual-core Atom N550 doesn't offer any significant performance bump compared to the older single-core Atom N450 processor. However, do consider the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM for its features, if you're looking to buy a netbook right now.

Internally, the line-up of components is as you'd expect, with one of the latest Intel's 1.5GHz dual-core Atom N550 processors, and 1GB of DDR3 RAM on board. Applications run smoothly in Windows 7, and the addition of the dual-core technology means that it's noticeably more responsive when running multiple applications than a single-core Atom. The overall benchmark score of 0.42 indicates, however, there still isn't much raw power on tap.

Asus' Eee PC 1015PEM packs in as much new technology as you'd expect a netbook to offer, but the result is underwhelming. There's no real improvement in performance over previous generations, though the battery life is better. But netbooks like these are going to have to become considerably more lithe if they're not to be quickly out-evolved by tablets.

Review: ASUS 1015 PEM Best Dual Core Netbook of 2010
Source: Netbooknews.com English

The dual core N550 processor lets Windows 7 run like it was meant to so performance wise is an easy choice over a single core netbook. Its price is extremely reasonable for what you get; an elegantly built machine with all day battery life and zippy performance. Streaming HD content isn’t going to be on your to do list but playing native HD content won’t be an issue. Its also not every netbook that comes across our table that we can say 2 members of Netbook News are opening up their wallets for purchase as their personal netbooks.

If you want USB 3.0, Asus' Eee PC Seashell 1015PEM is one of the first netbooks to offer it and therefore an easy choice. If not, there are plenty of other options around, though this Seashell might still be worth picking up if you don't mind its keyboard.

ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM: The Champion
Source: Inside HW English

After five days spent with ASUS' netbook, eight hours of meetings, four PowerPoint presentations, hundreds of lines of Word text and an excellent episode of Family Guy, we can only say that this is the best netbook we've had the chance to try out so far. None of its usage segments was disappointing, and with its price in mind, one can only wonder what is wrong with ASUS' marketing department. A mere 360€ will provide you with one of the currently fastest and most reliable netbooks on the market, a gadget that no businessman should venture out without!

Late in 2009, Asus brought us the Eee PC 1005PE, one of the first netbooks built on Intel’s Pine Trail platform. The system offered exceptional battery life, although its single-core processor hindered performance. With several improvements over its predecessor, including a dual-core processor and a lower price, this 10.1-inch netbook is a suitable supplement to a full-size laptop.

Visually there's nothing to distinguish the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM from the 1015PE. Inside however, you'll find a new processor, the Intel Atom Dual Core N550. The Asus Eee PC 101EPEM signals the arrival of the N550 CPU in netbooks. Dual-core, it brings better responsiveness and efficiency. Comfortable to use, the 1015PEM suffers, however, from slightly disappointing battery life.

This is one of the few netbooks to employ the dual-core Intel mobile Atom CPU, so we were a little unsure of what to expect with the Asus EeePC 1015PEM. We were pleased to say it performed decently well with almost all tasks. There did seem to be a detectable improvement over single-core netbooks when it came to launching applications, browsing with multiple pages open, etc. Don't expect to be able to do things at the same speed you would on a desktop or laptop computer, but for the things you'd expect to do on a netbook, it does a respectable job. Battery life with the Asus EeePC 1015PEM is rated by Asus to have an amazing 13 hours of battery life, but with real-world use, expect to get around 7-9 hours, which is still extremely good.

The $369 ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM offers better overall performance than single-core netbooks at a reasonable price. Its good looks, robust software bundle, and long battery life are also points in its favor. The keyboard is a bit cramped, and you don't get smooth 720p video playback (at least online). But for shoppers who want a netbook that's zippy when performing everyday tasks and lasts all day on a charge, the 1015PEM is a very good choice.

Asus 1015PEM reviewed a winner with N550 and good price
Source: Netbooklive English
All in all, the Asus 1015PEM manages to meet my expectations. I was expecting it to be the fastest 10 inch mini laptop and it is. I was not dreaming for insane performance boosts, but I wanted an affordable device, snappier than average in everyday tasks and with good battery life. And this is exactly what the Asus EEE PC 1015PEM offers. That's why this notebook is now a part of my list of recommended 10 inchers and I consider it the best option for a mini netbook available right now on the market.

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).


N550: Dual core Atom with a TDP of only 8.5 Watt. Because of the slow clock speed of 1.5 GHz it may be sometimes even slower than a N465 Atom CPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


1.25 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.
