"The ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM rises to the top as one of the best Netbooks on the market. Its got a sleek and slim profile that is inline with the Seashell lineup of Eee PCs. The attention to detail in design makes it rise to the top like cream, this is the netbook that Peter here at Netbook News is planning on buying and I am picking up the ASUS 1015PN which has a few tweaks including USB 3.0 & Nvidia Ion."
One of ASUS' Seashell netbooks, the 1015 PEM has gotten a good but somewhat inconsistent review, but to me it seems pretty ordinary. With one of the touted features being a matte finish 1024x600 screen, and speakers sounding 'only a tinge tinny,' the system does sport a dual-core Intel Atom N550 running at 1.5GHz. Performance is above average for the class of netbook. With an 8+ hour battery, this should be a good travel system. Anyone still buying a netbook with 1024x600 resolution?
