Asus Eee PC 1000HE now out and priced




Boasting a maximum battery life of 9.5 hours, the Asus Eee PC 1000HE is getting pretty good reviews (see full review at PTB) and local stores now have them in stock.

Prices vary between stores — PC Corner sells them for Php23,300 while Complink has them for Php24,950 (1GB RAM, 160GB HDD).

The biggest turn-on — an 8700mAh 6-cell battery that can last 9.5 hours. Of course, that comes with a price as the netbook is already 1.5 kilos (3.2lbs) heavy, about three-quarters of a pound heavier than earlier models. I’d say the 1000HE is way better than the expensive Asus S101 which is still priced at Php33,000.

    Got mine two weeks ago for P23K, grey market.
    This is by far the best Eee PC released by Asus.

    it’s starting to get closer to be a notebook. i guess function wise (being small and all) the features are very nice.

  4. TechLord says:

  9. Jhay says:

    With that battery life, the weight is bearable.

    I wonder how the other makers would respond?

    I bought one last Sunday (5/24/09) when my dinosaur laptop (pentium III that weighs a ton) would not boot up for days.

    Bought it at PC Live in MOA Cyberzone, where the sale personel are corteous, for 22+K. I had upgraded the RAM to 2 gig in the same store when i bought it. They accept all local major credit card (i used my SC visa for 1900+/month x 12 months at 0%)

    The battery life is great, i turn this thing on from 1pm, listening to mp3s w/o earphones , do the basic office work until 6pm. By then the battery never went down below 60%. And at home i turn it on again at 8pm for my net surfing and some take home office work. By 12mn, the battery rarely go below 20%. I do not know how the battery can handle connecting to wireless network though.

    I have not tried watching full lenght dvd movies though. Currently, i am downloading dresden files and the legend of the seeker in one of the popular torrent sites. Can’t wait watching those while in bed not being connected to any charger and without sweating like a pig because this netbook never heat up like my previous laptop.

    Btw, i found a much better media player (than windows media player) that can handle most if not all of the media format – the KMPlayer. This player suits the 10″ screen of ASUS EEE pc 1000HE. Here’s the link and check it out yourselves: http://kmplayer.en.softonic.com/

    This is the best among netbooks, check nyo video review sa youtube. If you are looking for something, eto na yun! Im personally using this, and I’ve tried several netbooks, so far this outstands everyone else kahit HP mini laos dito.
    I can compare to sa mac ko in terms of performance. Speaking of Mac, Leopard OS is running smoothly in this unit. try it yourself!
    Happy surfing!

  23. Hello!

    I just got my Asus EeePC 1000h as a father’s day gift from my dad :P.. We bought it for 20,700 at Silicon Valley SM Sta Rosa.. It works great and has decent performance for a netbook. I even play RA3 with it :D

    Thanks!!
