Asus Eee PC E1004DN… Don’t Call Me a Notebook
I’m still struggling with this netbook concept, I admit that owning a compact sized underpowered and cheap notebook could attract many of us. Today netbooks are more similar to the average notebook, but still with the lack of a proper CPU, like the new Asus Eee PC E1004DN, its 10” LCD, 1.45Kg, Atom N280, Intel, GMA 4500, its ridiculously slow 120GB HDD at 4200rpm, Bluetooth, Wifi…. an ODD (Optical Disk Drive) for a price around $590 USD…
Yeah, you know what? I’d rather get a Core 2 Duo Notebook a little bit bulkier than this Eee PC for the exact same price and get a real computer rather than an underpowered ATOM piece of plastic.
Taipei, Taiwan, March 28, 2009 – Versatile, Intuitive and Elegant. These are the qualities found in the Eee PC™ 1004DN, an ultra-portable mobile internet device which provides mobile computing flexibility through intuitive interfaces and input methods while shrouded in an avant garde style. The Eee PC™ 1004DN is the first in the Eee PC™ range to feature a Super-Multi optical disc drive, enabling users to read and write optical discs for convenient data back-ups. A power-efficient Express Card slot provides expansion capabilities, along with plug-and-play compatibility and auto-configuration access. An ergonomic keyboard provides users with a more comfortable typing experience—even for prolonged periods—and the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) technology lengthens users’ entertainment and computing experiences by providing them with extended battery life while on-the-go.
