[ Music ] ^B00:00:03 >> I'm Dan Ackerman, and we are here with the Asus Eee PC 1018. Now, I know you're used to hearing a lot of numbers after Eee PC model numbers, like the popular 1005, or the less expensive 1008. By bumping the number all the way up to 1018, Asus has actually gone back to the drawing board, at least aesthetically, and come up with a new design for the super popular Eee PC line. The internal components haven't really changed that much, but from the outside, it's a whole different animal. Now, it's kind of brushed metal. It's thinner than it used to be. It's got a much more upscale, sophisticated look. We like it a lot. It feels a lot more sturdy than the kind of plastic netbooks that you might be used to, even though, at $350.00, it's only 50 bucks more than the super entry level $299.00 model. But even though it looks really cool, inside it's kind of the same system. It's still got a 10-inch display at 1024 by 600 resolution. It's still got the some Intel Atom N450, one gig of RAM, Windows 7 starter, so not anything really new there. It's got the island-style keyboard that Asus has been using lately. We like that a lot. This model has a new touchpad. It's a little bit bigger, which is great. And the left and right mouse buttons, even through they're on one bar down here, they're at least textured kind of big, definitely better than we've seen on previous Eee PC models. The new Eee PC still has the same great battery life you're used to from Asus Eee PCs or even other netbooks. Performance-wise, it's still going to give you that netbook experience. You have to really temper your expectations. You know, good for web surfing, basic productivity, some very light multimedia playback. That's about it. As long as your expectations are modest, you can definitely get away with using a netbook some, most, or even all the time if you're not doing anything too intensive. Since netbooks are essentially commodity products in a lot of ways because they really do all have pretty much the same components inside, you're really buying based on price and based on look and feel. So because they're keeping the price down, and they've got this really cool, new design, there's a lot to like about this new version. I'm Dan Ackerman, and that is the Asus Eee PC 1018. ^M00:01:59 [ Music ]
