UMPCs Part 1: Asus Eee PC

Wow. It's been a while since I last posted in my blog, I can't imagine how much I miss writing. Well, for the past few months, I've been silenced in blogging as I tried concentrating on matters quite more important.. So much for that, I want to begin my comeback with ULTRA MOBILE PERSONAL COMPUTERS or simply UMPC.

For the past months, this has been the hotest topic in mobile computers. Who in his right techie mind can get away with these super small and compact notebooks? No one. It has simply conquered the mobile computer industry with a touch of style and a few pounds ofconvenience. These machines are the most suited student and traveler companion. Not boasting its humble power, the UMPC's geared to mobility like no other laptops have ever engaged before. This is why they are the most talked about topic in the computer world today. But the question is, which UMPC is for you?
Let's begin with the one that really started it all, the Asus EeePC. Its been a year now since Asus launched this UMPC in the market, and there are already a lot of improvements since their first model. Unlike the first generation Eee PC (700-series), the 900-series and the 1000-series EeePC answered its predecessors critics. The 900-series now has a legitimate 8.9-inch display while the 1000-series has a bigger 10-inch display. Now that's a lot compared to the previous 7-inch EeePC. Also, the newer EeePC now has an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz processor, which is a lot better than the the previous Intel Celeron. Another improvement is the slightly bigger keyboard, but I think it is still relatively smaller compared to other UMPCs out in the market. Wireless LAN, webcam, USB, Ethernet are still the standard, though the newer ones now has a 2.5-inch hard drive as compared to the smaller capacity Solid State Drive (SSD) of the older versions.

Well, the improvements of the EeePC really made a strong hold in the top position in the UMPC competition. With this as the barometer of the other UMPC's, I really can't deny that the Asus EeePC is the most popular netbook available in the market.

Coming up next: HP Mininote, Acer Aspire One, and MSI Wind.
