With the nature of my job not providing me the luxury of sitting in the office, reading newspapers while having a cup of coffee on my free hours, I need one of these to at least utilize my little free time to blogging instead. There are times I come earlier to schools where I teach but the computers are so darn protected so I can’t snag a chance to blog or else. But if I have my own little e-notebook I can sit comfortably in the corner of a room sneaking time to blog. At least this is what I can think of to normalize the flow of posts on my site cos I really feel bad about not having so much time to update and bloghop. Anyway, these are the small ones I’m talking about. The mini-laptops that’s been catching my attention for quite some time now.
Acer Aspire One Blue
This Acer Aspire One is really cool and comes in colors blue, pink, white and brown. And sure it’s handy with 0.995 kg. Processor type Intel Atom N270, harddisk maximum is 120 GB Serial-ATA, memory maximum 1.5 GB, display is 8.9 inch Crystal Brite Led and with a resolution of 1024 x 600 bp. The webcam is not much appealing with 0,3 megapixel but useful. OS is Windows XP Home.
I don’t know much about this brand but the e-book is quite tempting to make a hole in the pocket. The specs include 80 GB harddisk, 1 GB RAM, a VIA C7-M 1.6GHz processor, display is 10.2 inch, Windows XP Home as the OS, a web camera and more. It’s as light as 1.3 kg but not lighter than Acer Aspire One.
Asus Eee 901
Darn I fell for this when I saw one in Berlin, but the keyboard contains the German alphabet. It’s been taking time to release it here but it’s on the way with Windows XP Home, as the first versions come with Linux and I’m not so comfortable working with Linux though. The specs include Intel Atom as the processor, memory DDR II 2GB maximum, harddisk 12GB SSD, 8.9 inch WSVGA display, resolution is 1024 x 600 bp, Open Office, web camera 1.3 megapixel and about 1kg in weight.
Which one of the three above should I go for? The price is not that exorbitant so anyone who would want to have any of these can sacrifice an amount from his/her salary, lol! And for me who already have loads of paper to carry everyday, I need the lighter one for this matter. I don’t know if it helps me to be a blogger on the go but it’s worth the try.
Nice notebook. I’m saving the money I’ve got by blogging to buy such a nice notebook. Wish I could buy it next year. 😀
Hi Ecko, I’m sure you can buy any of these notebook. They’re not that expensive, hehee! Thanks for dropping by.

Hey i got mine two weeks back – its cool HP Presario.
Oh, good, Shanker. Now you can blog anywhere. But I’m looking for a lighter one, below 1kg or just a little over in weight. 🙂
I’m more attracted to the black elonex webbook. iba ang appeal ng black sa kin. besides palaban din talaga ang specs nya. if it becomes available here in ilocos norte, i’ll get one like that.
Jess, bigatin din talaga itong Elonex. Kaya lang mabigat sa kin magbitbit ng more than 1 kg dahil sobrang dagdag na ito sa bitbit ko papuntang school, hehee!
I also like the black elonex webbook. Meron din ditong small notebook less than P20K. Maganda nga sya kasi super gaan. Meron yung pinsan ni Francis na ganyan, forget ko lang anong brand. Ang cute, parang laruan lang. 🙂
Meron din akong napanood sa TV few months ago, sa isang High School lab ganyan kaliliit mga gamit nila, hindi kaya mawala yun? Kasi pwedeng ilagay sa bag ng ‘malikot’ na estudyante eh! 😀
Amor, murang-mura talaga ang mga mini-laptops na ito. Siguradong maraming makaka-afford nito diyan sa atin. Pero kung estudyante na mahilig ng computer games ay di yata ito tatagal.
Yes the joy of laptops! You should get one especially if the school doesn’t have any restrictions para sa ganun eh enjoy mo every minute of your time. Anyway, our gas problem is still prevalent. Tipid na nga ako sa bahay, pati gas tipid pa din! aba ewan ko, lipat na lang kaya kami jan!
Maricris, i’m waiting na lang for the Asus kasi ang lumang versions pa ang nandito. I want to see the difference of these three, hahaa!
Mahirap ding walang gas, di ba. Parang nawalan ka na rin ng tubig. 🙂
I like the Elonex Webbook Mhy..ang ganda ng specs.
Binawasan din pala PR mo nang isa..cheers..haha
Joy, you’re the third to notice that Elonex seems good. Pero hintay ko muna Asus, coming next week pa.
Yes, binawasan nga ng Google. Kung di sinabi ni Amor, di ko malalaman, hehhee!
wow, looks like someone has an eye for something thin and gorgeous?! LOL
I need a very small one like this to enjoy blogging everywhere, hahaa!

I went on a business trip right after getting this laptop. It’s proven to be very mobile. I charge the laptop at night, and take it to work with me in the morning, without the charger. The keyboard feels very natural, and overall work is smooth sailing.
This is the model that I’m looking for Acer Aspire AS1410 , smooth for video and also work well for gaming but i’m not gaming so not expect very high graphic. Normally, i use for internet and play video like youtube, bigger screen is great
