Asus Eee PC 1015PEM Review. Late August, Intel launched the presence of their first dual-core processor designed specifically for the Atom N550 netbook platform. The processor is the first dual-core Atom processors are aimed at netbook.

Along with the presence of these processors, Intel said a number of partners they directly deliver their products that utilize netbook Atom N550 into the market. One of them is Asustek with the Eee PC netbook series 1015PEM.

Asus Eee PC 1015PEMDesign and Specifications
From the design, netboook 1015PEM Eee PC is similar to the Eee PC 1015PE who had already been present in the market. This netbook also use matte plastic casing and keyboard design chicklet.

Keyboard with these designs facilitate those who have larger fingers than average so as not to slip pressing a button next to the button he meant. Unfortunately, there are several buttons that have a small size to keep raises the risk of one push.

To move the cursor, Asus provides a touchpad measuring 7.6 x 4 inches. Wide enough for a netbook. To click, though there are no buttons left and right, because both are fused into a button, you can still click as usual. The following is a brief specification of the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM.

Eee PC 1015PEM have the same completeness as netbooks in general. VGA port and a USB port on the left side and two on the right allows the user to connect a USB modem or an external hard drive while still recharge the battery cell phone and MP3 player, for example.

To do video conferencing, Asus provides a 0.3 megapixel camera at the top of the screen. Interestingly, there is a 'door' slide in front of the camera lens. It's quite useful to ensure that the camera will not catch the user when he is not ready.

This netbook also has a facility called Express Gate. Feature is application 'instant-on' Linux-based operating system that can be directly used in about 5 seconds after the button is pressed. If users only need to surf the internet, chatting, communicating through Skype, simply press the button on the left corner to activate this feature. Now if you want to get into the operating system Windows 7, the button is on the right hand corner.

Performance Test
Using the Express Gate feature, less than 10 seconds we can immediately surf the Internet. Unfortunately, when we try to explore, we need to connect the ethernet cable to the LAN port. Unable to use WiFi.

In terms of performance, dual core processors are used, despite their lower clock that is only 1.5 GHz and the system makes the application more responsive when running.

Through the application of RightMark CPU Clock Utility, noted that the battery on this netbook has the full capacity of 56.305mWh. If used continuously, the application estimates that the battery can last up to 5 hours 26 minutes.

The test battery life we do use the application Imtec Battery Mark. When tested, and by enabling the CPU load, carrying batteries can last for 4 hours 46 minutes.

From a brief experiment that we do, Asus Eee PC with dual core processors we can recommend to you who are looking for compact portable computer, with a somewhat decent processor in terms of speed. Battery that can last up to 5 hours or more, depending on how to use a netbook, too bad.

This netbook will be marketed in three colors namely black, white, red, and blue in the price range of $ 440.

  • Dual-core processor, better performance
  • Battery durable enough
  • Some of the buttons are smaller, less comfortable when worn
