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.

Series:

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.

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.

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).


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.


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.
