SlashGear Week in Review – Week 9 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 9 2009

After cellphones had their way with the headlines the previous week, the past seven days have been an opportunity for netbooks to race back into the spotlight.  Rumors spread about ASUS' upcoming Eee PC "Shell" luxury follow-up to the S101, while we saw a slimline version of the Acer Aspire One.  If you want a machine in the more immediate future, though, the Samsung NC20 was made official, and Dell finally launched their Inspiron Mini 10.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 1 2009

We kicked off the week with a review of HP's MediaSmart EX487 Home Server, but after that brief dalliance with Microsoft it was Apple that caught most of the headlines.  Much of it is rumor, of course, about what will launch at Macworld next week - A new unibody 17-inch MacBook Pro with integrated battery?  A new Mac mini?  An iPod touch HD tablet? - but the Dev Team gave us something more concrete with the release of yellowsn0w.  If you've been waiting to unlock your iPhone 3G, now's your chance.

ASUS Eee PC 1002HA gets reviewed: stylish but at cost of battery life

ASUS Eee PC 1002HA gets reviewed: stylish but at cost of battery life

ASUS' Eee PC 1002HA promised an interesting blend of S101 style and somewhat more wallet-friendly pricing, with your $499 getting you brushed aluminum, sub-2.6lb weight and less than 1-inch thickness.  Underneath all that, though, there's the usual 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor and 1GB of RAM, raising the question of whether you're still just throwing money at design.  Liliputing have been finding out.

ASUS Eee PC 1002HA: $499 on December 1st

ASUS's Eee PC 1002HA - which boasts the style of the S101 but a price more in line with the rest of the 1000-series netbooks - has finally made a live appearance, with LaptopMag spending some time with a very early pre-production unit.  Although non-functional (there was no hard-drive inside), it does show off the new Eee's slick design, which is expected to land in the US come the start of December.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 45 2008

It's been all about the smartphones this week, with the long-awaited HTC Touch HD finally reaching our hands for one of the first full English-language reviews online.  If our initial video demos last week whetted your appetite, head over to part one and part two of our full review to really gorge yourself.  Meanwhile, to cheer up those in the US who are still smarting over HTC's decision not to offer the Touch HD there, we reviewed AT&T's newly released BlackBerry Bold.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

We kicked off the week with some high-profile reviews here at SlashGear, putting the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops through their paces.  If you're considering one of these slick new machines - or are wondering what style features other manufacturers will be copying over the next six months - make sure to check them out!  We also played with a more budget computing option in the shape of the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA.

Meanwhile cellphones have been on the test bench, with Sprint's pair of new Samsungs - the messaging Rant and the musical HighNote - squaring up against Velocity Mobile's 103 smartphone.  We had to leave our desks to try out Blackline's GPS Snitch, however, but were back in before curfew to play with some toys: WowWee's Bladestar remote control helicopter, for one, and a rather more unusual review of the WowWee Femisapien

Asus Eee PC 1000HA Review

The choice of ASUS Eee PC models keeps getting larger, and the company shows little sign of stopping until there's a netbook variant for every individual person on the planet. On the SlashGear desk today is the Eee PC 1000HA, part of the company's largest 1000-series netbooks but coming in at the relatively bargain price of $429.99. Could this be the best balance of budget and functionality to date?
