    The new Asus Eee PC model is here and the 1000 is looking better than ever thanks to a redesigned keyboard, chassis-filling screen and new Atom processor. Is the new model really a step forward for the line though, or an incremental disappointment at best?

    :eek:

    had my eye on one of these for a while, finally getting some money soon so will be purchasing one.

    its worth noting that £330 is for the hard drive xp version and the ssd pushes the linux version up to around £370 (prices are inflated due to a lack of stock at the moment). worth the premium imo as a netbook with a hd seems pointless to me

    Am I just blind or do I not see battery performance numbers?

    Is it just me or is the "low cost" UMPC market becoming a high price and cram as many features as you can, battle?

    ....904? must have missed those.

    aaaand: availability.


    the 900 20G isnt
    the 900 12G is available...but not in linux
    the 900A 8G is available.
    the 901 12G is available...but not in linux
    the 904 isn't even listed

    (Is there a difference between the 901 and the 900A anyway?)

    They don't need new features...they need actual products!

    ok so there is an element of that happening.

    at the end of the day tho i am 6' 5 and have massive hands, a 701 or 901 would never have catered for my sausage like members.

    Joe, Acer have just announced a new model out that comes with a 6-cell battery at $400 (no UK price yet), and has dropped the price of all other models by $50. This means we may have an Aspire One with the same battery life, for £100 less still. :D

    Sadly, nothing Asus has released since the original 701 has even remotely piqued my interest. These new models are either too expensive, or not portable enough...

    IIRC, the 904 is a 901 with Celeron CPU (and may not have launched yet).
    The 12G machines are XP only equivalents of the 20G Linux machines, due to XP costing actual money to install.
    XP 900s have 4G on mobo (like 701) & 8G SSD. Linux have 4G on mobo & 16G SSD.
    I think the 900A is a 900 with Atom CPU.

    'Crack attack'
    that game's name almost sent me into a fit of laughter after reading it. strait away I was thinking of 'crystal meth: nightmare killing spree' or something similar...

    oh, and I'd rather have a standard laptop over one of these nettop/netbook things. I have a bad enough time making things out of a 19" 1600x1200 screen under good lighting conditions (and I'd like to be able to do at least some light 3d gaming).

    7 hours 45 minute battery life. I've added a quick paragraph just before the conclusion.

    Any chance of a side-by-side size comparison with the original 701?
