Brad didn’t sound convinced that a 1366×768 pixel high-resolution display would work on a 10-inch screen, but that’s exactly what Asus promised with the Eee PC 1005HR.

And now it’s been reviewed by our friends at Netbooked. Their verdict? It’s a well-built netbook offering excellent performance – and the screen doesn’t disappoint. Remember, just because you’re running a display at its native resolution doesn’t mean everything has to be small and hard to see. By tweaking icon and text size in Windows, it’s fairly easy to get things adjusted to a comfortable level while still taking advantage of the high-def goodness.

The 1005HR also scored points for being quiet and posted solid battery life – around 7 hours while browsing the web and 5 while watching looped 1080p video. Heat has also been kept under control, with the 1005HR registering peak temperatures of 42C on the bottom and 35C on the top (both at the bottom-left corner).

Have a look at the hands-on video after the break, or head over to Netbooked for the full review.

  1. I’d like to hack one of these screens into an n10j.
    Is it possible?
