Asus Eee PC 1000 (Linux) Review – LAPTOP Magazine

Asus Eee PC 1000 LAPTOP Magazine has published their review of the 10.1-inch Asus Eee PC 1000. The 1000 is powered by an Intel Atom and this version comes loaded with Xandros Linux.

LAPTOP Magazine lists it as one of their favorites (although as they point out, it’s the largest netbook / mini-notebook to be released, slightly bigger than the 10-inch MSI Wind U100).

In addition to physically being the largest in its class, it also has the largest Solid State Drive (SSD) in any netbook to date, with a 40GB SSD. In addition to the 40GB of onboard storage, it also has 20GB of online storage through Asus’ YoStore (which simply acts as another drive on the system, similar to Apple’s iDisk available through their .Mac/MobileMe package).

They were impressed, able to get over five hours with WiFi on, and gave it four stars out of five.
