It has been almost exactly one year since we saw the Asus Eee line of notebooks hit store shelves and it has been quite a year for this little side project from Asus. The original Asus Eee PC lineup, even with its flaws, turned out to be a massive surprise hit, as Asus hit a price and form factor that the market was finally ready to adopt for an ultra-mobile notebook. The Eee PC, while not truly the first of its kind, cemented the 'netbook' product category, which has encouraged potential buyers to accept this genre of products. Since its release, we've seen nearly every major OEM produce a similar product to compete with the Eee, although Asus' six month lead in this arena has helped them flesh out their product lineup even before their competitors got their first notebooks out.

The result of all the demands for a business-class Eee PC model have led us to Asus 1000H, one of the latest members of the Eee family. In comparison to the original Eee, almost everything has changed, however, the core ultra-mobile Eee feeling remains more or less in-tact, even for those who require a larger screen. Has Asus hit a sweet spot with usability, size, and price, or have they just made the Eee PC into a big, bloated monster? Let's find out!

>> Interestingly enough, Asus bundles 2 GB of system memory for their Linux-based version, but 1 GB is standard for Windows XP systems. It certainly seems like the opposite memory / operating system scnearios would have been a better fit. <<

Looks like cost-cutting on the hardware - just like replacing the SSD with a normal HDD. This is why the Windows version cost the same as the Linux-based 1000 model (or less?). Window's ain't free. :)

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
