The Asus Eeepc 900HD has now taken netbooks to new levels with its 160GB Hard Drive and with a price tag of about $249 it just makes this a great netbook. I have tried the HP Netbook, and the Acer Netbook and the Asus wins above those 2. I would recommend to go to your nearest electronic store and check them out so you can compare.

 

The 900HD differs from the 900 because it has now a 160GB 2.5 sata drive. The only thing that I can say negative about this netbook is that after a long period of usage it gets pretty warm since the hard drive generates alot of heat. This happens across the board with all netbooks I tried that had a hard drive inside of them.

The netbook is very portable and light weight. Below is a video that will show you all the features of the netbook and also links to where you can get a good deal for the netbook, where you can get more memory, and a bigger battery with 8hrs of usage. The extended battery does stick out some what but it is awesome if you are on the go and need juice to last all day.

    I’m keen on the design for what it lets you do. I would make several changes: take a pwm production and filter it to some dc voltage. Use this voltage and a comparator to create a controllable discharge current that you can set in a great deal of steps. Doria Pennycuff

    If you don’t plan for this while the hard drive is still functional, then you’re in for a bad awakening.
