Why is HP mini-note out of competition? In the article, the author says the reason is its price. However, given the price of EEE 900 being equal to that of HP M-N ($549 vs $499-599$), and the specs of mininote is better than EEE 900, I don't see the reason recommending EEE 900 over HP Mini-note. The SSD on the EEE might be faster than 5400rpm HDD, but since it's a UMPC, it is intended for light computing tasks.
All of You sad PR type-in-every-forum people.... You really don't get it, do You?? It's the SSD FLASH HARD DRIVE that makes the eee 10 times better then any other of these eee-wannabe's(only the classmate has any merit). it 10 times faster, eat's 5 times less power and is 100% drop, kick, fall, slam-your-mother-in-low-on-the-head proof. amateurs >:?
Having used many of these mini-notebooks, the entire product category could have some issues for different reasons for different consumers. There are big trade-offs between a mini and a full notebook at the same price.
i checked the chart.... the best feature IMO about the asus eee pc is the ssd. So many people keep bashing around their lapotps then getting upset because they don't work anymore... SSD is a must in sub notebooks in my opinion because they're just durable, they're faster, and more reliable. Why would you want anything but flash in something this small? extra storage? what's the point of having it if it's just going to break? These companies products will likely fail, or not do well due to this lacking feature. under the durability logic, anything mobile should have an ssd.
Asus Eee PC 1000
If anyone has noticed, the display is 1024
x 600, normally this resolution on all the computers I have seen have 1024 X 768! There is 168 horizontal pixels missing! What were they thinking? Well, maybe that's why they (big maybe)get 7 hours battery life. From what I have ran across, you might be lucky getting 5 hours. Where is the honesty in advertising? Why is America the LAST to get anything here with these notebooks?
