ASUS Eee PC S101 reviewed

We already knew ASUS' Eee PC S101 had it going on when it came to design, but how did it hold up under the stresses of everyday use? The critics over at Laptop Mag took the fashionable netbook into their testing lair, and while it was deemed "gorgeous, inexpensive, strikingly thin," users who opt for this one must be willing to "make some trade-offs in the name of fashion." For starters, the $699 machine shares almost all of the same internal components as the $449 Eee PC 1000H, so you'll have to fall awfully hard for the looks in order to justify the delta. Generally speaking, the palm rest and keyboard were both praised, but the critics did find the Shift key to be "awkwardly placed". In the end, there wasn't much here to discuss outside of cosmetic differences, and while this crew couldn't place its highest recommendations on the pricey S101, those with deeper pockets may certainly feel otherwise.

What is an inexpensive laptop?

An inexpensive laptop must have a price not higher then 600$, but even with this small price it must run Windows XP or Vista and minimum requirements must be at 1.5 GHz CPU and 1 GB of RAM.
These laptops are designed for small budget people who don't want to spend more money assuming that these laptops usually don't have a nice design and a lot of futures like: webcam, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Blu-Ray drive etc… so good luck at choosing the right laptop!
