ASUS Eee PC 1005PE Netbook with Intel Atom N450

Read on as we compare the Eee PC 1005PE running Windows 7 Starter with previous netbooks.

The ASUS Eee PC 1005PE is based on the same external design and features as our previous favored Eee PC, the 1005HA. While the external shell is nearly identical, what lies under the hood is a whole new platform from the improved power consumption of the Intel Atom N450 CPU and slightly improved graphics with the Intel GMA 3150 integrated GPU. When we began testing the ASUS Eee PC 1005PE, we quickly realized the new Pineview Intel Atom processors and platform were all about further reducing power consumption in order to continue to increase battery life. We were impressed to see the ASUS Eee PC 1005PE was able to meet the same battery life duration as the ASUS UL80Vt notebook which featured an Intel CULV SU7300 processor...

How is the touchpad in relation to the 1005HA? I ask because I own the 1005HA and I hate the touchpad.

Both the 1005PE and the 1005HA have the same touchpad.

I am not a big fan of the dimpled trackpad and the single mouse button either, but i'm actually used to it now... Rumor has it that ASUS is considering moving away from this in future designs. I wish they sent netbooks and notebooks with two button types so we could pick, but then again you have to pull apart nearly the entire notebook to change that out.

Just read this as I'm looking for a netbook for a friend. It's nice to see the battery life improve! So many choices though...
