Reviews for the Asus Eee Pc 1004DN

ASUS Eee PC 1004DN presents complete solution that has much more functions compared to previous netbooks that we tested. On its path to success there are few obstacles. First of all we don’t know the retail price, so in case it is close to some notebooks it cannot be recommended. Secondly, new chipset did bring new features, but it also had impact on autonomy. Our sample did get slightly warmer than we liked it to be, and autonomy is good but thanks to huge, back sticking out, 6-cell battery. There are netbooks with smaller batteries and better autonomy, which is one of the decisive factors when it comes to netbooks. Final judgment can be made only after acknowledgement of retail price. For now we can say that ASUS with Eee PC 1004DN made a step in right direction, and that this new concept definitely deserves our award.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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).
Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors. Compared to the N270, the N280 is only minimally higher clocked and offers a higher FSB.

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
