The new Eee PC 1000 has a 10.2" display and measures 10.5 x 7.5 x 1.5, slightly larger than the original, and much blacker.  Inside is a Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB of DDR2-533, an 8GB SSD for storage along with a 32Gb internal SDHC card.  See what The Tech Report thought of this Xandros-based Linux netbook.

"I quite liked the first Eee PC, but despite its infectious novelty and honest-to-goodness utility, what is now known as the

700 series is hampered by too many limitations to be a viable notebook replacement for most folks. Asus' new Eee PC 1000 40G,

however, is another beast entirely. Perhaps the most mature of this latest crop of netbooks, the 40G sports a 1.6GHz Atom

processor, a 10" screen with 1024x600 display resolution, a 91% keyboard, 40GB of solid-state storage, and a six-cell battery.

Of course, the Eee PC's form factor has grown to host this new goodness, and so has its price. Read on to see whether the

result strikes a good enough balance between value, functionality, and portability to make you reconsider your next netbook—or

even notebook—purchase."
