The Eee PC 1000HE is one of the latest laptops in Asus’s ever expanding line of superportable notebooks, more commonly known as netbooks. What differentiates this offering from many of their other netbooks is the 6 cell battery included as standard with the machine… it is the real selling point for this model and purportedly offers up to 9.5 hours of battery life. We’ll find out later in whether the machine can come close to these impressive claims.
The 1000HE comes packaged in a compact box with various pieces of documentation, a carrying pouch and an AC adaptor. The AC adaptor is particularly tiny and will be easy to pack into your bag on the move.
