Asus EEE PC 1000h

We had torrential rains during the weekend, but it didn’t stop us from going out. We headed to Yongsan Electronics Market, which is the most convenient place for us to go on a rainy day. The subway station nearest us is only about 20 meters away and arriving at Yongsan station doesn’t require any use of our umbrellas. We visited the bookstore first on the 7th floor of I’Mall. Then we headed down to the 5th floor where the laptop stores are.

I posted before that I’m interested in getting the MSI Wind. It’s a good thing that I waited since the Asus EEE PC 1000h is now out in the market. Its specs is identical to the Wind, but it’s priced more at 642,000 won compared to the MSI UMPC at 589,000 won. However, the newly released Asus has a 6-cell battery and a Dolby sound system. Great!

I didn’t see any MSI Wind yesterday and the seller said that they are sold out! I got a chance to test the Asus EEE PC 1000h and I like how responsive the trackpad is. I usually hate using trackpads on laptops. My husband was urging me to buy the 1000h yesterday but I told him I could wait for ten days more or just before school starts. Who knows what will come out next in ten days?! πŸ˜‰

Oh, a Bluetooth headset would be perfect!

    I used to hate using trackpads too, but when I got a mac, the double-finger tricks to scroll really won me over. Now it makes no difference to me!

    Congrats on getting an EEE PC. Since it’s the most popular, there’s the most support for it, so you won’t have to worry about it, hehe. =P

    I was at Yongsan last Sunday, I also got a chance to see the Eee Pc’s, I’m not really a Windows fan, but the screen is a lot better than the previous Eee Pc’s. I’m still waiting for an Apple UMPC or tablet.

    It’s a very cool netbook and already has competitors like MSI and HP though they can’t really beat it for now.

    There are better and way cheaper netbooks out there. It’s sad to know that the netbook that started the craze are now carrying price tags enough to get you a fully-functional laptop.
