The evolution of the netbook

22 netbooks in 18 months

ASUS Eee PC 1000H:
Every time ASUS released a new Eee PC, it took the netbook market up one notch. The Eee PC 1000H was the first Eee PC that we reviewed that included a conventional, spinning hard drive. It generated more noise and heat than the previous Eee PC 901 and 900 models, but it also gave it a little more speed than those solid state drive-based models. The 1000H had a 10in screen, making it bigger and heavier than the Eee PC 901. It ran Windows XP (Linux was available, too), had an Intel Atom N270 CPU (1.6GHz), 1GB of RAM, and had 802.11n wireless networking. Basically, it was a little closer to a conventional notebook than a netbook — and it was glossy — but it only cost $699!

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
