ASUS Eee PC 1000HE Netbook - A Home and Office Powerhouse?
By

In addition to changes in its keyboard and case, the Eee PC 1000HE has a new processor, Intel’s Atom N280. The N280 is clocked at 1.66GHz, as opposed to the 1.60GHz speed of the Atom N270 used in earlier models in the ASUS 1000 line. When linked with the 945GSE chipset, as in the 1000HE, the N280 offers a slight performance increase over the N270. When the N280 is coupled with the GN40 chipset, netbooks can provide HD playback and additional graphics performance. So, look for an N280/GN40 pairing from ASUS and others soon. And, of course, new Atoms and chipsets can’t be all that far away. So, life in the netbook lane is just about as exciting and complicated as life in any other personal computing lane.
