The Eee PC 1005PR-PU17-BK Seashell Netbook Computer from ASUS is a netbook computer with a wide 16:9 10.1" display. It features a native resolution of 1366 x 768, capable of displaying 720p HD video with ease. Thanks to the Broadcom Crystal HD Accelerator, you'll be able to output 1080p video via the computer's VGA port.
The sleek, stylish, and compact system features ASUS's stunning Seashell design, and weighs in at a scant 2.8 pounds. Despite its small size, you'll find that the system is comfortable to use thanks to a 92% full-size chiclet keyboard and a touchpad with multi-gesture support. The computer is capable of operating for an amazing 11 hours between battery charges.
It features standard 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, allowing you to hop on to wireless networks and hotspots with ease. The integrated Bluetooth 2.1+EDR module allows you to use wireless keyboards, mice, headphones, and other Bluetooth devices with the system. The system boasts a spacious 250GB hard drive, and you'll also have access to an additional 500GB of ASUS online storage.
The system is powered by a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU, which provides solid performance while using very little battery power. It is loaded with 1GB of RAM and the integrated 0.3MP webcam is perfect for online video chat. An SD slot and three USB 2.0 ports are present for external device connectivity.
A wired Ethernet port is available for those times when Wi-Fi is unavailable. Audio is provided by stereo speakers, and the system also features an integrated microphone. Windows 7 Starter (32-bit) is the installed operating system. The computer also features Express Gate, a bare-bones OS which lets you access the web, IM chat, photos, and Skype without having to boot into Windows.
The Eee PC is an excellent choice for anyone else who requires a compact, yet usable, system. It will allow you to check e-mail, perform basic office tasks, watch videos, and play games. Most importantly, it won't weigh you down.
