Brad over at Liliputing has posted a review of the 10.2″ Intel Atom-powered Asus Eee PC 1000H. He’s been using his 1000H for around four months, and has even been dual-booting other OSes in that time.
In addition to the hinge, a few other areas in regards to the build quality impressed him:
If you can get over the bulky size and relatively heavy weight of the Asus Eee PC 1000H, thereâ€™s a lot to like about the build quality. The keys are nice and responsive, and there are four user customizable buttons above the keyboard that you can use to quickly launch programs, toggle the screen on and off, or adjust the computerâ€™s CPU speed.
He was also impressed with the wide touchpad and multi-touch capability, but acknowledges the placement of the right shift key and the problems it may cause for some:
Since itâ€™s placed to the right of the PgUp key, itâ€™s difficult for many users to press and hold the right shift key while hitting another button on the keyboard. I find that I typically use the left shift key more than the one on the right side so this doesnâ€™t bother me very much. But if youâ€™re a big fan of the right shift key, this may not be the netbook for you.
