Any ideas on what the eeepc 1001P performance is like compared to say an Inspiron 9300 1.6Ghz both 2Gb memory.
I might be looking for one as a travel laptop and wondering if it can handle the same amount as the Inspiron.
Bit worried by the fact that it only has 1 VGA port. VGA will be done away with by 2015 if it lasts that long
"The real question here is, "How does that dual-core Atom perform compared with a regular, old single-core?" The speed of the included Atom N550 CPU is very similar to its single-core brethren, so there's no appreciable bump in any single tasks, such as streaming video or converting MP3s. This isn't a panacea enabling silky-smooth video on a Netbook. Hulu and Netflix viewed full screen exhibited the same choppy-yet-somewhat-watchable video we experienced on the 1015P. Most everyday tasks will feel exactly the same as they do on any other Netbook. The difference comes in multitasking: if you like to download and Web browse and stream audio and do other things all at once, the 1015PEM will feel less chuggy."
Any idea what they mean by choppy video, anyone used this on the eee?
