The LCD, 1.3M Webcam, Mic and Speakers
The Eee PC had a plethora of features; the one thing missing was definitely an optical disc drive, although if you have a USB DVD reader handy, it makes life better. Once I had satisfied myself on the lower regions of the Eee PC, I moved up to see if I could find any tid-bits worth noting. What is not immediately apparent is the maker of the sensor for the 1.3M webcam, and I was not surprised to find an Omnivision sensor.
They are a company who is always behind the scenes, but I was surprised to learn that they are in fact the world's number one supplier of CMOS sensors for digital cameras in the world. I guess it would be for the mainstream cameras to be found in most models of mobile phone. Getting back to the Eee PC, I also noted a microphone mounted in the LCD panel and the panel itself being a 10" display.
The built-in stereo speakers are mounted either side of the mouse pad, and a two button mouse pad is decidedly better than the previous single mouse button in the older Eee PC 701.
The device has an MMC(plus)/SD(HC) card reader, nice sized keyboard, mouse pad, 10/100 Mbps ethernet, 3x USB ports as well as jacks for a headset and microphone should you wish to use them.
The battery is Al23-901 rated at 7.4V / 66000mAh.The battery will only last 8 hrs if you make extensive use of the Super Hybrid Engine, which is basically a selectable power performance rating depending on your performance needs. If you are using a lot of graphics, then the power should be higher, and your battery life will be shorter. If you are just browsing the web, reading or writing texts, then on the lower setting theoretically you can get 8 hrs of battery life.
