Went to the Digital Mall at Section 14 last week because hubby needed to get a battery for his HP iPAQ PDA phone (used to be mine, hehe), a phone charger, and a laser pointer to be used during a presentation. Wanted to go earlier but was postponed due to the collapse of the ex-Jaya Supermarket building.
Thanks to the trip, I now found the next dream gadget to get my hands on – ASUS Eee PC 1000HE. 😛
Although I have been banking on the idea of getting a new laptop, mini laptops or netbooks never came across my mind until I saw it in one of the shops in Digital Mall. I was first looking at a pink Sony Vaio, which cost around RM3,300. Knowing that is not a price that I can afford, still I pretended to be interested and asked the sales personnel some questions, haha!
Then as I walked around the shop, eventually several small laptops got my attention. There were a couple of models from ASUS Eee PC range, but ASUS Eee PC 1000HE was the one that I am interested in the most, mainly due to its 9.5 hours battery life. Hence the tagline “One Day Computing”. Although it is a mini laptop, it has a large hard disk storage of 160 GB, plus a 10 GB online storage. That’s so much more space compared to this laptop I’m using! Light weight, nice keyboard, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions, this netbook is perfect for a lady who always suffer from shoulder ache carrying a heavy laptop. 😉 There is no CD driver though.
ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbook (1.66 GHz Intel Atom N280 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, 10 GB Eee Storage, Bluetooth, XP Home, 9.5 Hour Battery Life) Black
I don’t know if this is the best netbook to get, coz there are other mini laptops from HP and Acer as well. Guess I just have to check out netbook reviews on the internet. Then, I will see where on earth to add RM1599 into my pocket… 😛
