Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1018PB

Asus 1018p review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Asus Eee 1018p is a netbook that packs every single feature that one would want in a netbook. The Asus 1018p is one slick-looking metallic netbook packing the latest Atom processor, 2GB RAM, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0. If you are not a hardcore gamer and do not want a core i7 processor in your netbook, this business netbook from Asus is a must buy.

The Asus Eee PC 1018P is a well-designed, slim netbook charging a premium for its brushed aluminum body and some unique features such as a fingerprint reader and USB 3.0 support. But like the Sony VAIO M, it doesn't offer any performance benefits compared to netbooks such as the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 or Lenovo Ideapad S10-3. The Eee PC 1018P has better hardware compared to the Asus Eee PC 1008P but lower battery life, and it's arguable which one is a better looking netbook between the two, in terms of style and design. If you want a slim netbook for a style statement with improved hardware, some unique features but average performance, look forward to the Eee PC 1018P.

The Asus Eee PC 1018P is a slim, premium 10-inch netbook with a brushed aluminum exterior. It has improved hardware and also comes with some unique features like USB 3.0 support and a fingerprint reader. However, it has unimpressive battery life.

As a computer maker, Asus is best known for its Eee PC Netbooks, which were arguably the first and most important minilaptops for the mainstream market. The basic plastic design of the Eee PC hasn't changed much over the past few generations, giving the series a look and feel in line with its entry-level prices, as seen in the rounded plastic bodies of the Eee PC 1001 and 1005 models. Asus reboots the Eee PC series (at least aesthetically) with this slick-looking metallic Netbook, the Eee PC 1018.

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).


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.

11.1": This is a quite small display format for subnotebooks. However, most netbooks have an even tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display 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, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 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.
