Asus Eee PC 1000H vs S101


With all the different Eee PC models released by Asus recently, you might be getting lost on which model is really for you. That’s when an article like this being useful to you: Asus Eee PC 1000H vs s101 Comparison by PortableMonkey.

Here are some highlighrs from the article:

  • As expected, the S101 is much thinner and lighter than the Eee PC 1000H.
  • The SSD used in the Eee PC S101 is faster than the solid state disks you’ll find in cheaper netbooks like the Eee PC 901. It also supports faster read speeds than the hard disk in the Eee PC 1000H, although not faster write speeds. But that’s good enough to ensure that the premium netbook boots faster, shuts down faster, and may perform some other tasks faster.
  • The S101 has a fan, but no hard drive, which makes it quieter than the 1000H.

Prime Note Cartina UM Netbook from Dospara


Weird enough, Dospara, a Japanese company has announced to release their own netbook called Prime Note Cartina UM which will be available only for 30 units. So this netbook will be a limited edition, and the specs of the netbook is pretty standard:

  • 8.9-inch WSVGA LCD
  • Atom N270 Processor
  • 120GB HDD
  • 1GB of RAM
  • WiFi
  • Linux OS

We suspect the netbook will be rebranded and sell under a different name in future. If not, it really doesn’t make much sense for a company to produce just 30 units of a netbbok.
