I’ve been chatting a bit with good buddy Brad Linder over the past few days; he runs the popular Liliputing site that’s devoted to small netbooks and computers. He took note of my recent MSI Wind order because he opted for the Asus Eee PC 1000H. Spec-wise these two devices are pretty darn similar and some readers here have asked for a head-to-head comparison between the two. Luckily, Brad and I are just a short drive from each other, so we’ll be collaborating in a week or two for just such a "Netbook Deathmatch". ;)
While I wait for the Wind, Brad offers up his list of pros and cons for the 1000H. There’s plenty to like in his list, but a few "gotchas" that are present as well. Have a look-see if you’ve been thinking about Asus’s offering with the 10.2-inch display. Most interesting to me between the two devices is the weight difference even though both have a 6-cell battery: the Wind is nearly a half-pound lighter, but we’ll have to do a formal weigh-in between the two contenders.
