Hands on Impressions of the ASUS Eee PC 900HA NetbookASUS Eee PC 900HA Netbook. These miniature laptops offer power and performance in a tiny package at a fraction of the cost of standard notebooks.
I recently had the chance to get my hands on the Eee PC 900HA and I am extremely impressed with what ASUS has done. The netbook itself is a little larger than a paper back book measuring approximately 6” by 8” inches, and about 1.5” inches deep. The system weighs about 2 or 3 pounds and is very compact and easy to travel with. For my review I have been taking it to and from work each day, and it is easier to carry than my bag lunch.
The system comes with a nice little carrying case, but can also easily fit into a bag, most purses, and even some cargo pockets. But don’t let the size fool you. ASUS has included enough power in this little system to do everything a standard laptop can do and then some.
The first thing that caught my eye was the Intel Atom processor which runs at 1.6ghz, along with the 1gb of DDR2 memory and the 160gb hard drive. With all that storage and an 8.9” WSVGA widescreen display it makes the Eee PC 900HA the perfect portable movie player for travel.
With a beautiful display and quality speakers in a portable system the 900HA offers a great multimedia experience. But in addition to that the system is also capable of 3D gaming through the use of the onboard Intel graphics controller.
