Asus Eee PC 1015PX Seashell – Premium Design with a Top Processor
The netbook Asus Eee PC 1015PX caught my attention by the fact that it is a rarity to come across a netbook with matte screen. I know some people are attracted to shiny things, but it is good to know that in this case, the matte screen offers superior viewing comfort for the glossy ones, precisely because they do not reflect light like a mirror. Another aspect I like about Eee PC 1015PX is the Intel Atom N570. It is one of the best processors dedicated to this type of portable computer that has two physical cores and operates at a frequency of 1.67 GHz (it is currently the best Intel Atom processor).
Overall design is impeccable, from the joints and ventilation to well spaced keypad and soft-touch material of which it is made. And restpad offers the same tactile feel pleasant while the back of the netbook is defined by a high-quality plastic with an interesting texture. Both surfaces are matte and categorically reject the fingerprints. The only fingerprints friendly area is around the display.
The system is helped by only 1 GB of RAM though. An upgrade is absolutely necessary if you want to work with multiple applications in parallel, and I do not mean browser or messenger but complex things in tandem with basic office and multimedia applications. Another purchase I would recommend is a spare Asus Eee PC car charger as I suppose you will be travelling a lot if you are thinking to get this netbook.

Conclusion: Asus Eee PC 1015PX is a premium netbook at least in terms of quality construction and the processor provided. If you want to use it to its maximum capacity you must have to get extra RAM module and more capable battery.
