Since the launch of Microsoft Windows 7, there has been a steady stream of new netbooks from everyone. The problem is that with every new model, there’s only a couple of minor changes. The new Asus Eee PC 1005HR has the same internals as all the netbooks out there, except the screen. The 1005HR has a 10.1 screen with the resolution of 1366×768. That’s right. This screen is capable of displaying hi-def video at 720P.
Other than that, there’s not that much difference from every other netbook out there.
The key to purchasing the right netbook is to know what you’ll be using it for and how much you want to spend. Most people buy netbooks thinking it is a small and cheap laptop computer. Yes it’s very mobile and the price is low compared to a regular laptop, but it also does less. You can’t really play games on netbook or expect high performance from the Intel Atom N280 CPU. It’s best to evaluate all the different brands of netbooks of out there and determine which will fit your needs.
Will I replace my 1000H for a newer model with a better screen? Nope. If anything, I’ll get a new full size laptop instead.
