Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1018P-BLK076S
Source: Trusted Reviews
The Asus Eee PC 1018P is very good at being a netbook. It's particularly slim, otherwise small, light and more pleasant to use than some cheaper alternatives thanks to its aluminium clad interior. However, you do pay for such luxuries and with a single-core Atom processor and no HDMI output, it can't handle video nearly as well as some similarly-priced netbooks from other manufacturers.

We were extremely impressed by the Eee PC 1018P. It's great to look at, great to use and offers commendable portability. The only slight shame is the touchpad, but don't let that deter you.

In conclusion the Eee PC 1018P is a great little netbook. It isn't the cheapest around, but the fantastic build, usability and wealth of extra features more then compensate, making this one of the best available.

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.
76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
