Asus Eee PC 1005PE review: Asus Eee PC 1005PE

The system's battery life is where the new Atom platform really shines. Asus has always had some of the longest-lived Netbooks, and the new 1005PE ran for 8 hours and 25 minutes on our video playback battery drain test. That dwarfs the competition and, coupled with the system's low energy consumption, makes for a great all-day solution for road warriors.

Asus covers its laptops with a standard, one-year, parts-and-labor warranty, and it offers online Web-based help and a toll-free phone number. The company's confusing mix of support Web sites is a bit of a mess, but after digging around on three different related support subsites, we did manage to finally dig up the U.S. 24-7 toll-free support number, which is 888-678-3688.
