We have already reviewed Asus latest netbook, ASUS Eee PC 1016p. When ASUS announced about Eee PC 11016p at the same time it made announcement of another Eee PC that is ASUS Eee PC 1018p which belongs to 10.1” display family as well. Now let us see what the netbook has to offer.

In my previous ASUS 1015PED review I mentioned that both N455 and N475 processor package comes with Intel Graphics, Intel GMA 3150 which not suitable for power demanding jobs like gaming, compiling etc. However, elementary task can be done with help of the processor and graphics it comes with. There is no details about graphics; neither in ASUS website nor in Amazon the details of graphics have been mentioned.

Pros of Eee PC 1018p
Web storage 500GB
Long battery life
Features of ASUS Eee PC 1018p are similar to 1015PED. There are no significant changes you may observe. At $527.80 it available in Amazon which seems little seams expensive. The reason is the specification of ASUS Eee PC 1018-PU17-BK has no USB 3.0 port. You may get a notebook from Acer with same price and much advanced feature. However you might not get the long battery hour.
