IntroductionIntroductionEee PC 1000H is Taiwan's version of the latest Eee PC launched by ASUS late in 2007. Since then, like a wildfire the Eee PC revolution has burned asunder all competition before it. There is literally no other genre of PC like it. However, that being said, I have to say the look and feel of the model we are looking at today is a lot different from the first Eee PC we originally exposed in all her innocence a while ago. view here, the content is slightly risque.Here we have the box as she was bought; not much from the outside, but when you lay everything out, you can see a much more appealing set of assets.
The Seductive TeaseThe TeaseThe Eee PC 1000H is a mature product; it should be classed as a laptop in my opinion, and is certainly not something you want to take lightly. It's built with the all new Intel Mobile Atom CPU and chipset, an 80 GB HDD, 1 GB DDR2, WiFi 802.11b/g/n as well as 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, integrated speakers, a microphone, and also a 1.3M camera; all this working with Microsoft Windows XP. The blissful glossy black paintjob and the workmanship give her an upper class feel. I would expect to find her nestled in some loving arms in a sophisticated restaurant, a bottle of the finest red wine on the table, and a connoisseur of all things fine such as touching her lightly from time to time.
Delving DeeperDeeper We Go
The Chipset and CPU DetailedIntel Atom Processor with Mobile Intel 945GSE Express ChipsetAtom is the new Intel CPU for mobile platforms, formerly called Diamondville. It works in conjunction with the M 945GSE controller chipset which has a controller hub based on the ICH7 south bridge chipset, originally prevalent on larger ATX platform motherboards. According to Intel, the Atom processor is a completely new hafnium-based 45nm microarchitecture design to combine energy efficiency with super processing power.This first generation of the Atom is single cored with hyperthreading, meaning that it simulates two cores inside its single core. These processors will become more prevalent as more and more Mobile Internet Devices (MID's), UMPC's and mini-PC's get launched over the coming weeks and months. Intel believes it will be the best choice for all consumers, and the main reason for that is the performance per watt advantages. Those advantages are a sub 1 to 4 watt thermal power envelope for web browsing based applications; the second benefit is the scaling of power usage, which can switch anywhere between 800MHz to 1.86GHz. Lastly, the FSB is set at 533 MHz, enabling faster data transfer rates between the core subsystems.The Eee PC has tapped into the Atoms capabilities by enabling button controlled power scalability. Thus, at just the touch of a button your Eee PC can be at full power or sleeping contently, waiting for your next wake up call. Basically, she's a partner that dreams are made of.You can view the CPU in the picture below; this is a 1.60GHz Atom with 512K cache, running on a 533MHz FSB.
The LCD, 1.3M Webcam, Mic and SpeakersThe LCD, 1.3M Webcam, Mic and SpeakersThe 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.
Final ThoughtsFinal ThoughtsThe Eee PC is sexier, more mature and certainly more endowed than ever before. The features are similar to predecessors, but the performance is much higher with the Intel Atom CPU and chipset. We even managed to install Microsoft Vista, and for those of you who missed it, you can see the video clip and news item here.We have been duly impressed by this sultry seductress, and in freeing her of her black clad embodiments, we learned a few things about her deepest darkest secrets which we shared with you in all their refinement. Our next step will be to do some benchmarks on the Vista platform. That being said though, I'm first going to have to put her all together and pray that she works as she did before. The trouble with taking something apart is that it is always easier than getting the pieces back together. Well done ASUS; yet another top notch product geared for a hungry audience. I expect these to sell well with a MRSP of US$650, and no doubt with more DDR2 memory she will fly even further.We cannot rate her performance for you, nor give her any awards as this is an incomplete review. Please come back for more when the benchmarks are out.
