The Tech Lunch got to review the Asus Eee PC 900 this week. It is a neat little machine!

The unit that The Tech Lunch got to play with was speced at 900 megahertz, 1GB of ram, and a GMA 900 chipset. The unit was priced at around $400 and ran Windows XP. I was extremely surprised with how snappy it ran. The keyboard took some getting use to because the keys are smaller than average, but what can you expect from a netbook? We tried playing a few games with it. It wasn’t able to handle any of the newer games we tried, but it ran older games like Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun just fine. No Doom 3 or Left4Dead for you, Eee PC.

We compared the Eee PC to the Macbook as a size comparison. Even though the Macbook Air is not a netbook, it is Apple’s thinnest, most portable laptop. It is amazing how much smaller the Eee PC felt in your hands. It was a lot thicker than the MacBook Air, but the smaller dimensions made it seem more portable. Weighing in at just over 2 pounds it did not seem any lighter than the Macbook Air. Overall I was impressed with the Asus  Eee PC 900. It was remarkably cheap, solid build quality and powerful for such a small package.
