Reviews for the Asus Eee PC R052C-WHI002S
Let's Go Atom! The latest Eee PC is equipped with Intel's N2800 CPU which promises to save more energy and makes this model faster than most Atom netbooks to date. Can the 10-inch netbook face off against fierce competition from AMD's Fusion APUs? Find out in the following review.

The mono speaker gives fair maximum volume and is fine for casual use. The large 56W battery is one reason for the thickness of the Asus R052C, and on moderate settings lasts out a full working day. Certainly well capable of everyday tasks, the R052C isn’t quite there on demanding applications. With 4GB RAM installed it would be a different story.

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