Asus Eee PC 1015BX

RH Recommended Medal

This Asus machine, which uses the 1GHz AMD C-60 chip, is different from many other AMD-based netbooks: it has a 10.1in rather than an 11.6in screen. That makes it compact, though at up to 26mm thick, it's one of the chunkiest netbooks here. But with an eight-hour busting battery life, it's a long runner. Only 1GB of Ram, of course, but then it's only £230. The choice if you want an Intel-size netbook with an AMD-CPU.

Asus Eee PC X101CH

RH Numbers

The X101CH sports the standard spec for an Intel Atom-based netbook as listed in the Acer D270 entry, above. A netbook pioneer, Asus however differentiates this machine with a rather stylish, slim casing - it's just under an inch at its thickest point making it one of the thinnest machines here. The downside is a usable but unimpressive five-hour battery life - there are long runners here. Still you can't argue with the £200 price point.
