ASUS Eee PC 1008P tested – great design, poor battery life

February 8, 2010 at 10:36 am

ASUS Eee PC 1008PThe Asus Eee PC 1008P-KR edition certainly looks different to most other netbooks out there. It marries the slim chassis of the previous generation 1008HA Seashell netbook with Karim Rashid’s exterior design influences.

Engadget put the Eee PC 1008P through its paces and found that it suffered from “performance issues at the expense of better design.” There’s no denying that the netbook is attractive and should appeal to the fashionistas out there, the brown model in particular. However, given its $499 price point, it offers less battery life than its cheaper peers including the Eee PC 1005PE. The model tested comes with a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 2GB RAM and a 320GB HDD.

The 10-inch Eee PC 1008P has a 3-cell 31Whr battery and lasted for three hours and 20 minutes in a video loop test. This is 5 hours less than the Eee PC 1005PE. I suppose one positive point is that the 1008P comes with a removable battery (the 1008HA didn’t.) They confirmed that the US will only see one battery, despite some European countries getting two in the bundle.
