Photos: Eee PC 901 vs. Acer Aspire One
We happen to have them both in the house, so we thought we'd stick them side by side and write a few words that'll help you choose which is right for you.
We already know you want an--everybody does. But you also want the , don't you, you Internet-loving fiend? We happen to have them both in the house, so we thought we'd stick them side by side and write a few words that'll help you choose which is right for you.
The Eee PC 901 has already wowed us. Its 8.9-inch screen, 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and 20GB solid-state hard drive--plus 20GB of free online storage--is pretty much perfect for this sort of product, as is the 4+ hours of real-world battery life from the 6600mAh battery pack. The Aspire One is available in a wider range of configurations, but here's how it stacks up against the Eee PC 901, pound for pound: 8.9-inch screen, 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, and an 80GB mechanical hard drive.
Which is best? It's a close call, but we reckon the Eee might just have the edge--provided you're not typing anything. Anyway, enough with the words. Have a look.
