Avid readers of TweakTown will know that we like to run hoards of tests on our enthusiast desktops and the other hardware that we review. However, notebooks and especially netbooks require a different approach. The fact of the matter is that our normal benchmark regime simply won't run on a netbook nor will it run on the majority of notebooks we will be looking at.
With that in mind, we decided to go about our net/notebook reviews with a different approach. When appropriate and supported, we will run some synthetic benchmarks including various versions of 3DMark, PCMark, SYSMark, and MobileMark. However, we will try to rely on real world tests that focus on things that your average notebook user will be doing with the machine, should they run out and buy one.
Examples of the real world tests we will be using are encoding of an album of MP3's to AAC format with iTunes and encoding of a video to run on a PC with Windows Media Encoder. These real-world benchmarks will provide a great way to compare the performance of different notebooks and netbooks as time goes by.
For the ASUS Eee 1002HA, I will be testing the machine with MobileMark 2007, PCMark2005 and both the iTunes encoding and video encoding tests I just mentioned before.

MobileMark 2007 is a test that gives us the run time of the battery in a notebook, one of the most important factors that many consider when shopping. Considering that the ASUS 1002HA, like other netbooks lacks an optical drive, I ran MobileMark 2007 at default settings along with the Reader test rather than the Movie test. With Wi-Fi turned on, the battery in the 1002HA lasted 3 hours and 54 minutes.
That's low compared to some of the other Eee netbooks on the market, but when you consider that I performed all tests of the 1002HA with the Super Hybrid Engine turned to maximum performance, the runtime is actually pretty good. Turning the SHE to the mode for saving battery life will result in better runtime, but as always with batteries your run time will vary greatly depending on many factors.
