The next test I ran on the computer was PCMark05. We always prefer to run PCMark Vantage at TweakTown, but Vantage doesn't support computers running Windows XP which is what the 1002HA uses.
PCMark05 is an application that simulates different types of workloads from editing graphics to watching video and all sorts of items in between. The long and rigorous test provides a simple score that is great for allowing direct comparison between different computers. The Eee 1002HA scored 1495 PCMarks on the test. That is an average score for the netbook class considering that all netbooks offer virtually the same specifications.

Now we will get into the tests that will be of more interest to most people shopping for a new computer and show how well the system performs as a whole on common, real-world usage scenarios.
For the iTunes test I took a set of 12 MP3s and copied them into the latest version if iTunes. Once the tracks were in iTunes I used the software to convert them to AAC format and timed the process with a stopwatch. It took the modest 1002HA a full 22 minutes and 2 seconds to encode all of the tracks.
That number is vastly less than the performance you can expect from full notebooks. For example, the Alienware M15X (a much, much more powerful and expensive notebook) encoded the same MP3s in slightly under 6 minutes. However, as I stated before, the vast majority of netbooks on the market are running the same exact hardware so you can expect the 1002HA's score to be average for the netbook segment as a whole.

If you are a fan of video content and want to encode something to be downloaded from the Internet or sent to your iPod or other device, the overall performance of your notebook or netbook will greatly affect how fast you can do this.
This test directly measures the performance of the computer systems for encoding video content using the free Windows Media Encoder application. The movie file I encoded in the test was a total of 45.32MB and took the 1002HA 26 minutes and 11 seconds.
