Asus Eee PC 1000H Netbook


Before we go in too far in each component area, it's best to have an overall look at what we're dealing with here. The EeePC 1000H is more or less a moderately powered notebook which is half-way between a small laptop (13-14" screen) and an ultra-portable PC (6-7" screen). It's the largest EeePC notebook to date, and also one of the most expensive, but it's feature-set is significantly beefed-up compared to prior models. Here's how Asus describes it.

The retail box is extremely small and matches the expectations of a notebook which is largely targeting the budget market.  The EeePC is nicely packed in a form fitting box - the accessories all sit in a separate area below the notebook unit. Don't expect much in terms of extras - as you receive the notebook itself, an A/C power charger, a thin (but surprisingly nice) carrying case, and some install CD's and manuals. It's actually refreshing to not have tons of added extras which you may or may not ever use, so long as the essential components and peripherals are still there.
