Sascha at Eee PC News.de has posted a short review of the Datacask Jupiter 1014A netbook. Like many other netbooks on the market today, the Jupiter 1014A has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, and runs Windows XP or Linux. But how does it stand up against the competition?
According to Sascha:
- The netbook’s glossy cover is attractive, but it’s also a fingerprint magnet.
- The trackpad is much smaller than the Eee PC 1000 trackpad.
- The keyboard is a bit smaller than the Eee PC 1000 keyboard, but easy to touch-type on. For some reason the Fn key is to the left of the left Ctrl key, and the right shift key is to the right of the up arrow, as is the case on so many netbooks.
- The Eee PC 1000 is nearly two inches wider than the Jupiter 1014A.
