PCWorld: Review: Asus Eee PC 1015PED Netbook

PC World gives the 1015PED ($349.19 – $411.52) three stars out of five. Performance is average and it doesn’t do video terrifically well.

“If you’re familiar with Asus’s Eee PC series of netbooks, the vendor’s $369 Eee PC 1015PED will hold few surprises for you. It has softer, more rounded appearance than previous models, such as last spring’s Eee PC 1001P-MU17 and Eee PC 1201N. Other than that, it relies on the same formula that the company has followed for the past few years with the addition of an Intel Atom N475 CPU and Bluetooth.

With a score of 38 on WorldBench 6, the 1015PED tested marginally better than the average for Atom-based netbooks. However, in my hands-on evaluation, it felt sluggish. Part of the problem might be that the netbook runs Windows 7 Home Starter with just 1GB of DDR memory and a relatively slow 5400-rpm 250GB hard drive.”
