Asus Eee PC 1001P: The Cheaper Seashell

The introduction of the Asus Eee PC 1001P is somewhat a bit of an odd thing because the earlier Seashell models (1005P, 1005HA and 1008HA) already completed the line-up.

Besides, if you based it on the SKU, this model seems like an older one.


The specs aren’t any much different too:

Asus Eee PC 1001P
10.1″ display screen @ 1024×600 pixels
Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66GHz
Intel GMA 3150
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
1.3MP webcam
Windows XP Home
Price: Php19,995

Aside from the lower price (~Php2,000), the only big difference between this one and the Eee PC 1005P is the smaller storage (160GB vs. 250GB) and the pre-installed operating system (Windows XP vs. Windows 7 Starter). Maybe that’s where all that savings were passed on.

      I’m a fine arts student. I’ve used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign CS4 on my EEE PC for plates and other assignments. It can be slow when saving files. The monitor isn’t good for graphic design, though, as it does not display colors as accurately as more dedicated monitors. I tried installing InDesign CS5 but it crashed.
