Asus 904ha Netbook


ASUS has been coming up with some really attractive netbooks in the past few years. The EE PC 904HA model is a perfect companion for professionals and entertainment freaks. This tiny machine has an 8.9” LCD screen that offers 1024 x 600 pixels resolution.

The key specs include 1 GB RAM, 160 GB hard disk and an Intel Atom processor. Compared to its predecessors this model is a little heavier and weighs about 3 lbs. It also has built-in stereo speakers, a microphone and a 1.3 megapixel camera. There are 3 USB ports, 1 VGA port and offers Wi-Fi connectivity. The biggest selling point of this netbook is that it has a 6.8 hour battery life. The OS can be Windows XP Home or Linux and this ASUS model comes in two attractive colors, pearl white and fine ebony finish.

Let’s look at some of the Pros and Cons of this ASUS model –

Pros

The model is affordable and the price is perfect for all that it has to offer.
Like most other netbooks, this too is a perfect companion for travelers and can fit into your luggage without any hassle.
The battery life is a big plus, as few netbooks offer 6.8 or more hours of battery usage.
The new 160 GB hard disk offers more space and is also faster than most other netbook hard disks.
The 1.3 megapixel web camera is an added advantage.

Cons

This model still uses the older N270 processor and is unable to compete with some faster processors in today’s market.

The keyboard is small and the right shift key is inappropriately placed.

There is no indicator for caps lock, so if you have to type an upper and lower case password, this can get annoying.

Though the new hard disk offers more space and speed, it also uses more power and gets heated faster.
Compared to other products, 3 pounds is a little too much weight to carry around.
