We overview and review the Asus Eee netbook PC laptop computer. 

The Asus Eee Netbook PC

asus eee netbook pc 1000heThe Asus Eee PC is a netbook style laptop computer by Asus and a part of their Asus Eee PC line of laptops. 

The Asus Eee PC netbook was introduced in late 2007 and quickly became popular because they were light weight, ran a light and efficient Linux operating system, had new tech solid-state hard drives and sold at a sub $500 price range.

As the Asus Eee PC netbook progressed over the years newer models have added the option of the Windows XP operating system so they were more accepted by mainstream users.

So despite their storage capacity limits of the SSD style hard-drive, we will surely see them offered into the future. 

Newer Asus Eee netbook PC models have increased in price, though they still remain relatively inexpensive as laptops, and most notably inexpensive for ultra-small laptops. These super small and compact line of low cost ultra-compact laptops are actually referred to as netbooks in the tech world instead of the traditional laptop designation. 

Asus Eee Netbook PC's and Competitors

Quick Tidbit - The word netbook is a term originally coined by Intel for a specific kind of sub-compact notebook that emphasizes on power management features, uber small size of course, and basic operating systems. 

Netbooks use processors requiring the least amount of power to run effectively.  A common processor used in netbooks such as the Asus Eee Netbook is the Intel Atom line of processors. 

The Intel Atom is a special purpose ultra-low voltage processing brain designed by the processor industry guru's over at Intel Corporation. 

In a nutshell Asus Eee Netbook PC and other netbooks on the market are small laptops designed for basic usage such as internet access, occasional word processing, and other light duty computing duties. 

While Asus Eee PC Netbooks have small screens because of the super compact nature of netbooks, Asus offers a slew of screen size options to meet the needs of just about anyone. Asus offers 7, 9, 10, and 10+ inch netbook models at the time of this writing.

Popular Asus Eee PC 10-inch netbooks include the Eee PC 1008HA, 1005HA, S101H, S101, 1002H, 1002HA, 1000HE, 1000HA, 1000HD, 1000H, and 1000.

Popular Asus Eee PC 9-inch netbooks include the T91, 904HA, 904HD, 901, 900SD, 900HA, 900HD, 900A & 900.

Last but definitely not least are their 7-inch line of netbooks.  Popular models include the 701SDX and 701SD.  These models are very easy to use and offer some extreme mobility according to Asus and we can vouch for them in regards to this claim.

We see the Asus Eee Netbook PC's vastly growing over the next few years as netbooks are further taking over the mobile landscape like crazy and Asus has set the bar early on with the original Asus Eee PC 901 release in 2007 and we don't see Asus netbook laptops going anywhere anytime soon. 

Since this netbook form factor was first introduced by Asus the overwhelming success of the netbook in the world market has led Asus to greatly expand its line and other major manufacturers including Dell, HP, Sony, Samsung, and many others have released many netbooks of their own.

We have been big fans of the Asus Eee PC since their 2007 inception.  I mean who wouldn't want a super small cool looking laptop for under $500?  Exactly!

In the end keep in mind that the Asus Eee Netbook PC's are truly marketable towards computer users that need basic computing on the go, or even more advanced computer users who are simply looking for a secondary machine to compliment their primary desktop workstation or laptop. 

For most users we can't honestly recommend a netbook as a primary computing machine, though many of the newer models will make a great primary machine for a young tech adventurer.

We also feel the Asus Eee PC netbooks will make a great semi-cheap though super cool valentine or birthday gift for anyone.
