Asus Eee PC 1025 Series

Asus Eee PC 1025C-GRY041S

Asus came out with the first netbook about four years ago and from they have been leading the market in that category. However, it has come to a time in which consumers do no longer need a cheap, tiny laptop as travelling companion. Tablets and smartphones now play the role of these mini laptops.

Asus is still pushing the netbook category with one of the lasts of its kind, the Eee PC 1025. It is an improved version of the older and slower netbooks that ran on single core processors. One could say that this is the second generation of netbooks but that’s as far as it goes. Even with a dual core Intel Atom processor and 2 GB of RAM, the Eee PC 1025 still feels slow and laggy.

That’s just half as bad as the exterior quality. The entire chassis is made of plastic and feels like it could break apart with the slightest fall. Even keyboard and touchpad are a huge let down. The touchpad is made of the same material as the interior chassis and it isn’t smooth enough. The keyboard is too small and the key travel is too short. As a result, it can be really hard to get any typing job done on it. Suddenly, a touch screen keyboard doesn’t seem so bad anymore.

The 10.1-inch matte screen isn’t that bad outdoors but truly isn’t made for your multimedia needs. That’s one of the main points though, if you’re looking at a 10 inch multimedia device, any tablet out there will do the job for you with at the same amount of money. If it is an ultraportable laptop that you’re looking for, ultrabooks already do the job perfectly but at much higher price. The good parts about the Eee PC 0125 are its battery life and selling price. Hence, the only reason to get this netbook is if for some reason you need a cheap windows based, portable laptop that has a long battery life.

60% ASUS EeePC 1025C Flare Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The last of a dying breed, the ASUS Eee PC 1025C Flare demonstrates why tablets have superceded netbooks as the lightweight computing device of choice -- pound for pound, slates offer faster performance, sleeker designs and more intuitive touch interfaces. Still, if you're in the market for a compact laptop that costs a third of the price of an Ultrabook, the Eee PC 1025C is worth a look. It can handle basic tasks with ease, weighs only 2.4 pounds and lasts more than three hours longer on the charge than the average netbook. Not bad for a laptop that costs less than $300.

Once upon a time, cheap, tiny laptops ruled the land, acting as travel, backup, and kids' computers to millions, and completely upending what consumers expected to pay for a PC. Asus brought Netbooks into the world, and with the last-gasp Eee PC 1025C Flare, it looks like it's going to take them out as well.

Asus EEE PC 1025C review – solid 10 netbook for every buyer
Source: Netbooklive English
As I’ve mentioned at the beginning of this review, the 1025C is going to be Asus’s work-horse in the netbooks’ segment in 2012. It brings most of the features Asus can squeeze on these machines, a latest generation hardware platform and a good overall price, although I’m sure others will be able to beat it for on-par configurations (and yes, I’m thinking about Acer, with their D270 Aspire One).

Asus 1025CE review – best 10 inch EEE PC so far, but…
Source: Netbooklive English
In the end, I feel like the EEE CP 1025CE is a solid mini laptop, one of the best, if not the best netbook I’ve ever seen. Hardware and specs wise, Asus did a great job: the mini laptop is solid built and looks good, the screen is surprisingly good for this class and the keyboard/trackpad combo aren’t bad either. However, there are some issues. The biggest is the hardware platform, which is also the big novelty. Like I said in the Hardware section, the CedarTrail platform is no revolution, so you shouldn’t expect a huge boost in performances from the little fellow. It does offer better graphics in an efficient pack, but that’s basically all. And only to some extent actually, as drivers are an issue that might not get solved that soon, as Intel is said to focus more on getting ready for Windows 8, than developing drivers for netbooks on Windows 7. Of course, I might be wrong here, only time will tell.

If you've turned your back on netbooks in favour of tablets, you're making a serious oversight. These fantastic little machines offer supreme portability, great value and the reassuring usability of a keyboard and touchpad.

60% ASUS Eee PC 1025C Netbook review
Source: APC Mag English
ASUS may have invented netbooks, but today its offerings like the ASUS Eee PC 1025C-GRY041S simply aren’t that impressive. It’s got a decent enough new processor, but overall the small battery capacity and poor input devices render it a mostly uninteresting option. The 1025C is built solidly enough, but the tiny keys on the cramped keyboard can make typos reasonably frequent and the touchpad is intermittently not very sensitive.

Asus reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3650: Integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2800) without dedicated memory. Most likely based on a PowerVR design similar to the GMA 500 but with higher clock rates.

» 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).

N2600: Dual core Atom CPU with an integrated SGX545 PowerVR graphics card and a video decoder.

N2800:

Dual core Atom CPU with an integrated SGX545 PowerVR graphics card and a video decoder.


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.


1.1 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.

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.


68.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
