Asus Eee PC 1005P gets priced




Stores are now selling the refreshed version of the 10″ Asus Eee PC 1005P Seashell running an Atom N450 processor. Options for no OS or Windows 7 makes the pricing a bit interesting.

The one with Windows 7 Starter has a suggested retail price of Php21,900 while the one without any OS is just Php19,896.

The 2 thousand peso difference for the OS and the HDD upgrade to 320GB makes this model a pretty nice deal. I think it’s a good thing they offer options without any OS so consumers can save up a bit and just run some free OS like Ubuntu.

    It’s a very good deal. Those who have been looking for an affordable and capable netbook would find this model very attractive.

    I’d install Ubuntu on this one in case I buy it.

    This is the 12.5-hour netbooks right? Just what I really, really, really (yep desperate) need right now.

  4. Alps says:

    Where’s the PE variant? :(

  5. jerb says:

    @QWERTY nakawan mo din sila ng load pare tabla lang.
    @ryan i think its the 1005PE one.

  6. yuga says:

    I think this is also the 1005PE model.

  7. Alps says:

    @Sir Yuga: But the PE variant has chiclet style of keyboard, right?

    Or P and PE variants are really just the same at least here in the Philippines?

  8. Hubes says:

    AFAIK, PE version has a bigger battery and chicklet keyboard.

    That is why the PE version is rated 14 hrs on a single charge.

  9. yuga says:

    Will check it out in the store and figure out which models are out and if they are priced the same.

  10. archie says:

    Will just actually will inquire.

    Is Asus Eee PC 1000HG released here in the Philippines? I bought mine in Saudi Arabia.

  11. IanMedina says:

    Meron 22,900 may kasama ng TPLink wireless N router. good deal na yun =)

  12. how long is its battery life po?

    I’m still wondering if the asus 1000HE still holds the record for the longest battery life which is 7-9 hours…

  13. guyrony says:

    I love this! Does this come in any more colors?

  14. Mrs. G says:

    We got the one with Windows 7 Starter.

    Is there a way to upgrade Windows Starter to Windows Home Premium?

  15. manong says:

    have u seen the new e-machine netbook? it’s 15k yet have the same new specs Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66GHz Intel GMA 3150

  16. AlvinM says:

    San po pwede makabili nito??

  17. rolly says:

    i saw an acer emach n270 for 14k at virramall, and also this asus w/ n450 at p19k. is the diff in worth p5k?

  18. Renz says:

    Hi, pwede po bang palitan ang HDD into a SSD? Di ko po kasi kasi kailangan ng 320 gb sa isang netbook. Sayang lang.

  19. Josh says:

    I want to get one for my girlfriend, but how would i install an OS for the model with no operating system included if im going to install via USB??

    Sa pc kasi, automatic na pag nag boot gamit ang dvd drive, mag iinstall na siya. thanks!!

    • Gov says:

      You have to make a bootable USB drive . Then configure the BIOS to boot through USB.

      Plenty of tutorials on the net.
      If you’re planning to use Ubuntu, that procedure is also included.

    I just bought a unit at P13,440, with just about the same specs at 1GB DDR3 RAM and 250GB HDD. Netbook prices are really sinking these days due to tight competition.
