Asus Eee PC family tree (2009-2010 edition) (photos)

For purposes of historical interest, we've rounded up the past few generations of Eee PC Netbooks for easy perusal. This particular collection doesn't include every Eee PC model we've reviewed; instead, we've chosen to focus on versions from the past 12 months, all of which are still available for sale (we'll dig deeper into the archive in a future roundup).

Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N

As one of the few Netbooks with a dual-core Atom processor and Nvidia Ion graphics, the 12.1-inch Eee PC 1201N has superior performance compared with most Atom-based machines, but any higher-level ULV thin-and-light will still do better.

Asus 1005HAGB

The Asus 1005HA remains one of the best overall Netbooks available, but this model, even with a 3G antenna, is starting to feel a bit long in the tooth.

Asus Eee PC 1101HA

Swelling the ranks of 11.6-inch Netbooks, the Asus Eee PC 1101HA impresses with its design and battery, but having to overclock a slower version of Intel's Atom CPU is a dodgy workaround.

Asus Eee PC T91

Asus does a good job combining a Netbook and a touch screen in the Eee PC T91, even if the system hits a couple of first-generation snags.

Asus Eee PC 1000HE

Asus practically invented the Netbook market, and the Eee PC 1000HE is an overdue overhaul (from February 2009) that offers a new CPU and great battery life, but misses some of the competition's bells and whistles.
