Briefly about the main thing:

Asus Eee PC 900AX - updated configuration of one of the most popular 9 "notebooks. One of the main advantages is the low price of the device. In the review, we will consider the configuration of the computer, as well as its appearance, characteristics, advantages and disadvantages.

Outwardly Asus Eee PC 900AX seems very small - this is due to the fact that a display with a diagonal of 8.9 ”, a matrix resolution of 1024x600 pixels and a high level of backlighting was used, due to the use of LED backlighting. The netbook with a lithium-ion battery weighs close to 1.2 kg, and the maximum thickness does not exceed 34 mm. The model is made of black plastic with a beautiful matte finish. Gloss is absent even on the screen: the surface is absolutely matte, does not glare, which makes it very easy to use a laptop on an airplane or train, where it is not always possible to hide from direct sunlight. The case is sturdy: the panels don't flex and the display is held in place by a large hinge. The webcam and microphone are located above the screen.

Keyboard, touchpad and acoustics:

In terms of ergonomics, the laptop loses a lot due to the fact that the display is small. Therefore, the netbook suffers from a compact keyboard, since small buttons are made and it becomes inconvenient to work with texts. If a child uses the keyboard, this is not a disadvantage. The touchpad also suffered, and unlike the keyboard layout, which you can still get used to, the mouse pad is so small that it is a little annoying at first. Manufacturers have tried to mitigate this shortcoming by introducing multi-touch functionality. There are no complaints about the design of the control keys - they are made conveniently. Since the manipulators take up the entire space of the working surface, the sound is installed in the front edge of the case.

Cooling, battery and interfaces:

Asus Eee PC 900AX differs in completely invisible heating of the case and quiet operation of cooling. Warm air comes out from the left side of the laptop. The netbook is equipped with a 4-cell battery, which lasted 4 hours of battery life in tests - this is an excellent result for a computer at a low price, which allows you to use the device for a long time in places without constant power supply.

Unsurprisingly, there is only one wireless module in a netbook - Wi-Fi ™ 802.11 (b / g)... Absolutely all interfaces, inputs and connectors are placed on two sides of the device. On the left side of the computer, you can see the network adapter (LAN) jack, one USB 2.0 port and a universal headphone or microphone jack.The right side also looks rather poor: one more USB 2.0 connector, VGA connector, Kensington lock, card reader with support for SD and MMC cards.


Given the low price Asus Eee PC 900AX, don't expect high performance even for a netbook. The computer is built on the basis of a processor Intel® Atom ™ N270, and its clock frequency is 1.6GHz. The computer is equipped with RAM with a volume of 1 GB DDR2, and a hard disk capacity of 160 GB with a disk rotation speed of 5400 rpm. The integrated graphics module Intel® GMA 950 adds a good configuration.

Tests in the program: PCMark05 scores 1549 points... This result suggests that the netbook is sufficient for working with office applications, simple games, watching DVD movies and photos, blogging and correspondence, watching Internet videos and reading news on the Internet.

Overall impression:

Asus Eee PC 900AX - the most affordable netbook with a medium configuration and a small screen diagonal. The device is ideal for carrying and using on trips and trips, for those who need a computer with no extra frills for work or if you are looking to purchase a device for your child.

Pros and cons:

+ Affordable price

+ Compactness

+ Convenience when traveling and long trips

+ Capacious battery

+ A good gift for children

- Very uncomfortable manipulators. The keyboard and touchpad layout features take some getting used to.

- There could be more interfaces

- Poor performance
