- Love my netbook
I know very little about computers and fins this one very easy to use. It is very light and easy to take everywhere. It automatically signs on to the internet in Wii Fi zones, and is very fast. I recive many compliments on how cute my computer, it is really a good looking model. It is so light, I take it everywhere, and I love the webcab. I am a Pilates instructor and I make short video's of exercises to send my clents. ...more info
- Pretty good
Good notebook, full size laptop keys. Right shift is horrible though.
Format the drive completely, and reinstal an nLite version of windows xp, and you'll have a small, smooth running machine....more info

Good laptop for the price. Travels well on the plane. Full size laptops are too large in coach seating. Battery life is ok. Only negative is RH shift key is awkward to use....more info
- Few Flaws - Not Perfect!
I've had mine for a couple of months now. Few flaws I've found.
1) The monitor output doesn't work for my HD LCD TV (I thought there was something wrong with the current cable I have, but bought a new one and it still doesn't work!)
2) Battery life isn't what it claims... 10 hours huh? More like 3.5. I sent an email to ASUS and no response yet.
3) You'll find that some software won't work unless it's in XXXX x XXX pixels.
Other than that, it's convenient. It takes time to get use to the keyboard like everyone says. If I could, I might have gone with an HP....more info
- Constipating Performance!!
I'm not quite a computer pro but a adept user. So far I have used this product for 2 month and found really annoying!!
1. Long battery life, more than 4 and half hour in most cases.
2. Easy to carry around
1. SUPER FINGER MAGNET, every touch can get your eee pc dirty, and the design is ugly.
2. LOUD FAN, it's really annoying and after weeks of use the fans just keeps spinning till you shut the system down.
3. Windows XP SP3, I have many software issues with SP3, and other language apart from English is not installed when first time boot.
4. Very low performance CPU and graphics, what can I say about it about a 350 bucks computer, it just sucks, it took me the whole day to convert rmvb to mp4 for my iPod touch. And running iTunes is like constipating!
5. My eyes start to hurt so much because of the screen, now i regret buying this.
I'll never buy netbook again.
- After three months I have come to love my Eee 1000HA
I have had my Eee 1000HA for three months now and absolutely love it. The screen size is not a problem for me - that was my big worry but heck, I used to do software development using a Compaq "luggable" with an 8" diagonal black & white screen. (Now I do my development work on a stand-alone machine untouchable by the internet).
The misplaced right Shift key "problem" is not a problem to me since I have almost never used the right shift key except while one-handed typing. But since I have long been accustomed to a one-touch End key I looked on the web and found a real cool and free little program called KeyTweak that allows you remap just about any key to just about any other key by changing the Windows registry for you. I got it so I could change the useless (to me) riight Shift it to behave as an End key. Similarly I remapped the right Ctrl to behave as a Home key. While I was at it I changed the key between the right Alt and Ctrl to behave as a Delete key since a right mouse click does the same thing it did. Then I realized I never use the right Alt either so I changed it to be Backspace and It all kinda makes sense having the Spacebar followed by the Backspace, Delete, and Home. It makes it real nice not having to reach to the far right and top of the keyboard to do things I do a lot.
BTW, even without the right Shift key as such I can still do one-handed typing with my average man's hands for most keys thanks to the slightly smaller keyboard.
The full boot time is amazingly fast and to wake up takes only around 7 seconds to resume a couple of apps from sleep. Actually faster than I can pull the case for my readers out my pocket and put them on.
I finally found the instructions and settings for the Eee keypad. They are at the Options as a result of clicking the Elantech tab on the Mouse control item from the "Classic" Control Panel - on the "Folder View" of the Control Panel select "Printers and Other Hardware" to get to the Mouse control. I disabled the very sensitive keypad tapping function for when I'm typing and it works better better for me - I have a tendency to drag my thumb when typing and when I did it it redirected my subsequent keystrokes to the mouse cursor position....more info
- The bigger version of the original ASUS netbook
Bigger and heavier than my original ASUS netbook but has the additional memory that lets me download my normal work programs and can be used as a normal machine (bigger keyboard) if I need to do some writing. ...more info
- The Triple "E"
I guess I could consider myself somewhat of a pioneer of the netbook. My first one was the ASUS Surf. It has a 7 inch screen, 512 MB of memory, media card slot, 802.11 G. WiFi, 2 GB solid-state drive with a modified ASUS LinuxOS installed. The OS takes up about three quarters of the solid-state drive so you're very limited to what you can install. Usually after going online, I would have to delete the cache from the browser. As for e-mails, I would read them, reply to, and then delete them.
Now a few years later a ASUS comes out with the 1000 AH. This little wonder comes with a 10 inch screen, one gig of memory, media card slot, 802.11 G. WiFi, 160 GB hard drive installed with Windows XP Home. It even comes with a soft padded case that you can stuff with foam instead of the computer and use it as a pillow. ;-)
The netbooks have come a long way and this one proves it. It is so convenient to use around the house I can't imagine ever being without it anymore. It definitely doesn't have the capabilities of a gaming machine but for what it can do it is unbeatable. I even read an article in a computer magazine that they installed Photoshop on it and the results were pretty remarkable. There have been a lot of reviews on this little wonder so I'm sure I can't top any of them but felt it was necessary to write a review to tell you what a great little machine this is. I think one of the amazing things to me is that this little wonder outperforms some of the computers I had just a few years ago.
While I'm writing this review I would like to thank the other reviewers for telling us how to upgrade from 1 GB to 2 GB of memory and how to make Windows recognize the extra gigabyte. Thanks! :-)
One thing that concerned me in purchasing this is if the web browser would fit into the screen. It fits in there perfectly, just like it was a big monitor. Also, one reviewer mentioned that the buttons at the bottom of the touchpad were stiff. And they are. But not stiff enough that I would ever trade this for any other netbook.
In closing I will mention that I have in ASUS G1 gaming laptop that I bought a few years ago and given the chance I think this netbook would have been my first purchase rather than the G1. Granted it doesn't have the horsepower as the G1 but then again the G1 doesn't come with all the mobility and fun....more info
- Nice computer
This was my first netbook computer and it has been really nice so far. I've had it 2 weeks and I've been quite happy with how quickly it boots up and shuts down. I find that typing isn't so difficult even with a slightly smaller keyboard. Overall, I would recommend this to someone looking for a netbook....more info
- Review of Asus Eee PC
Well worth the money! Could have a larger hard drive though. There's a 500 Gb drive that will work in this machine. Overall good purchase!...more info
- Fits The Bill
I purchased the Asus Eee 1000HA back in December of 2008 and absolutely love it! The shift key is a little lower, but that is not a major factor. So far I have not had a problem with this netbook. It is great for traveling and that's what I purchased it for. I got what I paid for. The netbook is not a laptop. If you want a laptop, get a laptop, but if you are looking for something to get online to do a little surfing or check email when traveling, this is the one for you. The only thing I would recommend is to purchase a external cd/dvd drive, if you need that accessory. But if I need that I can use my laptop. The Asus Eee 1000HA fits the bill....more info
- Love my Eee
The keyboard is much more comfortable than the 8" netbooks, which must be made for spider monkeys. Love the 160 Gig hard drive, tons of space to save music and photos. Surfs the net a lot faster than most laptops. Card drive is very handy. Long battery life is the deciding factor. Only drawback is no internal dvd player/writer. Adding an external isn't bad though. ...more info
- GREAT COMPACT COMPUTER, ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE
I bought this computer to take with me on trips instead of bringing my bigger laptop. It easily fits in my backpack and I like the fact that it doesn't weigh as much. It does the basics, emails, word processing, spreadsheets, videos from the internet. This is all I need when travelling.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the left shift key is not in the usual place and this takes a bit getting used to the position. I understand that they have corrected this in later models.
I would recommend this computer to someone that wants to have a laptop with them when they travel...more info
excellent service, the only thing is that I feel that the battery lasts a short time about 4 hours only....more info
- Great 2nd Machine, but not perfect
After looking at quite a few other Netbooks I settled on this one because of the screen size and keyboard. The Netbooks with 9" screens are just too small.
It does everything I need it to, including video playback and light web surfing. The 160GB hard drive is nice to have as well.
While the keyboard is nice, touch typists (like myself) might have issues with the placement of the right shift key. I've been using this machine for over a month and I'm still not used to it. Also of note is the mouse, which can only be described as hyper sensitive without any way to adjust.
While I don't think this would be acceptable as a full time PC, it gets the job done if you don't have to do anything too processor/screen size intensive....more info
- Buyer Beware
Had my machine just under 3 months. Great when it works but I ended up losing everything. This machine needs to be backed up constantly because when it dies its dead. Customer service is a joke. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a computer with service possibilities and potential for reliability....more info
- Great Travel Buddy
This is my first netbood and I love it. Yeah,the screen is a bit small for my aging eyes. I don't like to have to scroll right/left to see the whole screen, so I keep in in "compressed" mode, which requires - for me - reading glasses. I don't have this problem at all on my son's ibook or daughter's ThinkPad. But this is easier to transport around and has fantastic battery life. The built-in SD card reader is a bonus, especially when traveling. It's so easy to slide the card out of your camera and straight into Eee PC and give friends and family updates on your trip each day (without the need for an external card reader).
It's got a nice keyboard, it's very user friendly with easy to use functions. The pre-loaded office software (MS Works) is nice (basically a watered down version of MS Office). If it's not enough, you can always load more. Not having a full functioning version of PowerPoint (currently has a read-only version) is a negative, but again, you can always load that.
Overall, I think it's a great machine and it's getting a ton of use. ...more info
- Good for students
This is an perfect size for me to bring to school,the only thing that I don't like ,is the mouse not sensitive....more info
- Great Laptop
I looked at this Device, the Asus, the Dell Mini 10 and the HP. This is the best one out there. Great battery life, etc. The 1000He may be a good deal too depending on Amazon's price at the time. (Better battery life, wireless N and Bluetooth) You can't go wrong either way)...more info
- Worthless tech support
I had this item for 1.5 days. It charged fine the first time and worked very well. I was happy with it for the price for sure. But then my power cord failed. I called tech support and they answered promptly with an almost working english accent. But they then wanted me to ship my power cord to them for repair. Forget that, I will RMA it back and get my money back. They could ship me a cord and have me ship the defective one back. How hard is it to troubleshoot a bad power cord??? Not very. ...more info
- ASUS EE 1000 HA
I bought it for my friend and she loves it. I gave 3 stars because Amazon did not mention the next version is due for release within 2 days. So, I ended up buying an older version....more info
- So far, so good!
So far Ive been very happy with this computer. It does everything I expect it to do....more info
- New redesigned keyboard for 1000 series only
Probably in response to the criticisms about the position of the right shift key, ASUS has replaced the keyboard on the 1000H series only. The new keyboard is a "chicklet" type, used by Apple and several others, and the right shift key is now in the desired position. The new model number is BLK-O26X, and no longer BLK-001X. I don't know if Amazon currently is selling the new model, but others are.
I do not find the 2 touchpad keys hard to push. They seem to require the same pressure as on my older Dell and newer Toshiba laptops. However, as mentioned in a previous review, the pressure to push forward with the thumb is easier than pushing down with a finger. That also may be something improved with the new keyboard design.
I have not upgraded to 2GB memory yet, because I'm not dissatisfied with the speed with 1GB. Also, I can barely hear the fan running. It is certainly much quieter than the fan in my Dell desktop.
I am very satisfied with the 1000HA; fortunately, I already owned an external CD/DVD USB drive to load software. Attempts to load several commercial programs from a network CD drive were unsuccessful because of built in security checks in the software....more info
- As Good As It Gets
At first blush this litle gadget does just what I'd expect, and does it very nicely.
It's really best for handling emails--that's why I got it--and for Web browsing. Sort of a larger iPod touch, but with a keyboard. I also plan to take it on job interviews (if I need to).
The keyboard is small, of course, but I found I could install Dragon NaturallySpeaking which really helps with text input.
As for SW, I'm used to Outlook but the EeePC's email program is lean and has a few nice features (including a spam trap). Microsoft Works has always been good SW to have and plays my Word docs and worksheets just fine.
I'm still exercising the battery to "break it in" and so far battery life is 4 to 5 hours.
I expect to discover more nice features, but from the beginning I have a good feeling about this product.

- It does everything I do with my macbook
This is a great little netbook. I originally bought it to as a companion to my 1st gen. intel macbook which I use primarily at home and for use to work while commuting on the train. To my surprise, I found that despite it's lower processor speed, smaller screen, and windows OS it does everything my trusty macbook does, over a wireless connection including:
- logging in remotely to my work machine
- playing steaming video (netflix and hulu)
- calling friends and family using skype
- web surfing, online banking, etc.
- creating and editing word docs and excel spreadsheets using Open Office
- downloading and responding to email offline, then uploading my email when I have a wireless connection
- storing and playing my itunes library
- storing and editing my photos in iPhoto
Obviously this machine is not a powerhouse -- if you're a gamer, graphic designer, doing video editing or using applications that require a video card, a lot of RAM and a lot of processing power, then this is NOT the machine for you.
For the price, the 6 cell battery is excellent. It holds up for about 5 hours when using wi-fi and 7 hours when not. More than adequate for watching a film on a cross country plane trip or listening to your music on itunes. If there were books that were formatted to this screen, I'd love that as well.
To my surprise, I had very few problems with the small 10" screen. Since there are multiple resolutions (800 x 600, 1024 x 600, 1024 x 768), it's not hard to find something comfortable to work with.
I fixed the infamous "shift" key by remapping it to the page up key. In fact, I'm typing this review on my EEE PC 1000 HA right now. My only challenge has been working with the touch pad which, while sensitive, is also programmable. Other than that, it's worked like a charm.
I look forward in 5 years, when these machines will weigh less than a pound, have slightly larger screens and cost less than $300....more info
