Asus Eee PC for Eli?

asus eee PCI’ve been reading a lot of blog posts about Asus’ cute little notebook called the Eee PC. I even have an office mate who bought one couple of weeks ago. Though I heard there’s a pink one, she bought the white cute little one.

There are lots of hacks and programs and things you can do with the Eee PC. But let’s talk about the hardware and specs…

All the units have a 900MHz Intel Celeron processor. They also have 802.11b/g wireless LAN. It has an Intel GMA 900 graphics processor (integrated) that I’ve heard can run quiet number of games or videos.

The screen size is 7-inch 800×480 LCD with LED backlight. I haven’t tried using it in different lighting, word of mouth says that it does a pretty good job too.

It also has a built-in webcam, microphone, and stereo speakers. It’s like really having a desktop or a real ‘grown up’ laptop.

For other hardware connectivity, Asus EeePC has several ports and outlets into the right and left sides of the unit. It has three 2.0 USB ports, VGA out (for projectors and stuff), Ethernet and modem ports, microphone input and headphone jacks, and an MMC/SD card reader.

To sum it all up, the Asus Eee PC has the following cool specs:

  • 7-inch 800×480 LCD display
  • Intel mobile CPU (Intel 910 chipset, 900MHz Dothan Pentium M)
  • 512MB RAM Memory.. but there is a choice for a laptop memory upgrade
  • 8GB flash HD
  • 300K pixel video web camera
  • 3 hours battery life using 4-cell battery
  • 2lbs: weight
  • Dimensions: 8.9 in x 6.5 in x 0.82 in – 1.37 in (width x depth x thickness)
  • 3 USB ports, 1 VGA out, SD card reader, modem, Ethernet, headphone out, microphone in

So, what do you think guys and gals? For a price range of Php 16K to Php20K, should I consider buying one or should I just spent my hard-earned, bucket-of-sweat-earned money of an equivalent priced desktop PC?

Considering also that a 16GB Asus Eee PC is on the way this year….

    So have you bought one yet? If you ask me, it depends on your needs and how you’ll use it. If you’re always on the go and use your computer in several places then I think you should go with the Asus Eee. But if you only use it at home, or at the shop then a desktop would be better. :)
