Despite Asus' best efforts the endless slew of new Eee PC models and configurations has probably served more to annoy customers, rather than excite them, while new announcements from the likes of Lenovo have generated rather less buzz than in the early days. Only Dell's hand is yet to be played fully, but even that saga is feeling a little tired.
Hollow complaints aside, we're returning to familiar territory today because we're looking at the Asus Eee PC 1000H, the Windows XP version of the Eee PC 1000 that we've already reviewed in its Linux form. When we originally reviewed the 1000 we found that, though a useful addition to Eee PC stable, the Linux version was, with its 40GB SSD, just a little too expensive to recommend - noting that the 80GB Windows version was cheaper and had more storage space. So bearing this in mind, will this version fare any better? "
