Some time ago I need a mobile computer to support my work in the field. What I need is a simple device for the need to make a report or just browse the internet and receiving email.
After looking at a wide range of products on the internet I finally decided to choose the ASUS Eee PC Netbook 1015BX. This netbook caught my attention because it has a pretty good specs for the netbook class and it also cheap.
Asus Eee PC 1015BX use AMD C60 processor with 1GHz clock speed and ATI Radeon 6290 graphics card with up to 384MB shared memory and dynamic clock speed 200MHz ~ 400Mhz which already supports DirectX 11.
Installed harddisk capacity is large enough with WDC 320 GB, while the 2GB of DDR3 memory capacity is sufficient to meet the needs of today's applications.
I tried some 3D games on this netbook and most work well even on minimum or medium setting. At least this netbook can run those games. Quite satisfactory when compared with the Intel Atom netbook.
I have tried Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and Need For Speed Shift 2. Both are capable of running well.
Disappointing to me is the sound quality is not so good. The voice is too small to listening music or watch movies even use the headset though.
But with the price $ 270 I think the ability of this netbook is more than enough.
