    I'll probably pick up a 1000H if it is priced decently. But if I can get a better full sized notebook for the same price, it isn't worth it to me.

    I still think these are very nice computers, but they kinda killed it with the price.

    That probably kills battery life. But on the plus side you could put in a 1tb drive...

    So 1/3 of the weight of the entire machine will come from the 3.5" drive?

    ASUS' press release states a 3.5" drive, but I think it is a typo on their part. I really don't think a 3.5" drive would fit in the machine, and the SDD drive they use is 2.5", so it makes sense that they would use a 2.5" HDD in its place. All the news post are just quoting from ASUS' press release, and you can't really blame them. However, I have no doubt ASUS is actually using a 2.5" HDD.

    There's no way that little thing could use a 3.5" HD. The thickness of the drive itself is the thickness of the lappy when closed :rolleyes: Its just a typo that began @ the source.

    So besides the bigger screen it does have a bigger keyboard also ? The 1000 series compared to the 900.

    Also how much Ram does it have? it says up to 2GB but its still 1GB right ?

    Found the 901 very interesting cause of the better chipset and the intel atom compared to celeron, but if the 1000 has all that and a bigger screen + keyboard might be a winner, although i wonder what prices will be in europe, starting to be a bit hefty and close to other "normal" laptops that only lack the small size.

    It's very simple to see its a typo. A 3.5" weighs like a brick. They are quoting only 120g more for the HDD over SDD. So that is either 1.8" or 2.5", but certainly not 3.5. Also the dimensions of a 3.5" wouldnt fit in the case.
