ASUS Eee PC 1000HE available for $374, gets a hands-on

eeepc100helead1 ASUS Eee PC 1000HE available for $374, gets a hands onASUS’ Eee PC 1000HE was official as of yesterday, and Laptopmag already has had the chance to get some initial impressions of the new netbook with a hands-on.

The 1000HE is the first netbook to use Intel’s new Atom 1.66 GHz N280 processor, but despite having a slightly faster clock speed than the N270, its Bus Frequency is slower at 167 MHz as opposed to the N270’s 133 MHz.  Laptopmag didn’t notice any noticeable improvement in terms of day-to-day performance, and 1080p video playback was just as choppy as the predecessing 1000H.

The 1000HE also has the same chassis and clunkiness as the 1000H, but the new netbook has a massively improved keyboard.  The 1000HE’s chiclet-style keys are sturdier, the island layout eliminates flex, and the infamous Shift key has been moved to the left of the up arrow rather than above.

The cheapest price I’ve been able to find for the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE is $374 at Amazon.  They’re still not in stock though, so it’s just a preorder, but they should be in very soon.
