Asus Eee PC 1005PEB

The Good Smart design; reasonable price; excellent battery life.

The Bad You could find similar systems for less; the sheer volume of different Eee PC models can be confusing.

The Bottom Line This retail version of the popular Eee PC Netbook, the 1005PEB, hits the required notes, and is a little less expensive than many other retail Netbooks (but more than some online models).

Review

Asus Eee PC 1005PEB

Editors' note: This review is part of our , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

It's nearly impossible to walk through an airport or coffee shop without seeing an Eee PC. That's in part because there is a confusing array of overlapping Netbooks that all carry the Asus Eee PC name, despite having different components, prices, and even screen sizes. For $329, the retail-only 1005PEB-RRED01S hits all the major notes, including Intel's current Atom N450 CPU.

Compared with other retail N450 Netbooks we've seen, the Eee PC costs a little less, but savvy online shoppers can find largely identical configurations (such as the Eee PC 1001P) for as little as $299, if they're willing to trade a little hard-drive space.
