my desk

Yeah, I’ve got a backlog of netbooks to review. The next week or two should be fun. I’d like to thank Samsung, Gigabyte, and Lenovo for sending me these models to review. The little guy in the back of the second row is my Asus Eee PC 1000H. That’s right, I’ve actually managed to hang onto the same netbook for nearly a year. It’s a dinosaur, but it still gets the job done.

  1. That shot must have been a staged, photo-op –
    Nobody could work on a desk that clean!

    Now if we where to see “the real desk” (probably in
    the next room) – –
    The one with the wild stack of intermixed product
    brochures, sticky notes everwhere and NetBooks. . .

    But a nice “photo-op” shot just the same.

  2. Nice way to cover a desk! At least when they all have similar performance specs you can focus on the other details of the machines when you review them.

  3. A YEAR ! What a dinosaur !

    Maybe even out of warranty now, too.

    Things move faster and faster, uh ?

  4. I don’t know why you are calling it a dinosaur.

    I keep wanting to upgrade my 1000H also, but besides the exterior, most netbooks out there have similar specs. I am looking forward to the ten inch touch screen from asus and pineview, but besides that nothing out there nowadays shouts ‘upgrade’.

    1. Oh yeah, that’s exactly the reason I haven’t upgraded yet. But in a
      market that’s only existed for about 2 years, I still think of a year
      old computer as ancient.

      My trusty old 1000H has a 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU, and 1GB of RAM just
      like all the new kids. And it’s got 802/11b/g/n, and Bluetooth which
      is nice. But it has a 4-5 hour batter while the newer versions can
      often get 8+ hours. And it’s kind of big and heavy as netbooks go.
      It’s also saddled with the small, awkward right-shift key, but that’s
      never bothered me as much as it does some people.

      I might pick up an Eee PC 1000HE battery soon to give it a little more
      life. Or I might break down and upgrade before the holiday season.
      I’ve got a 17 hour plane ride planned in November and it would be nice
      to have enough battery power on hand.

  5. what version of the lenovo s12 have you got, i really want to see a review of the ion version of this or the samsung n510? i think its the n510, the one with ion in ith at any rate to see how these compare battery life wise

    1. This is the Intel Atom/GMA 950 version of the Lenovo IdeaPad S12.
      Lenovo hasn’t released the ION version yet, although I’m going to see
      if I can get my hands on the VIA Nano version at some point.
