Asus 1015PX Review

Asus 1015PX Review

    The Asus EEE 1015PX is the latest netbook of Asus, powered by the Intel Atom N570 processor. It offers a faster cloud computing experience as well as enhanced usage experience with its new seashell design revision.  

The keyboard of the 1015PX changed where its from a full flat level before now they keyboard or should I say the body panel itself shifted a bit more downward to make the keyboard look like its raised and pops out from the body itself. 

The touchpad also changed where its now a seamless smooth panel, not like before it has graded texture that you can feel. But now the touchpad is also bigger than the previous version. 

The EEE Seashell design of the 1015PX is more defined where the plastic surface is Matt, not like before its glossy. Giving more detail to the curves and bevel of the netbook. 


Basically the 1015PX is advertised as 25+% faster than the N450 processor, in my test the 1015PX does gives more punch than the previous netbooks. But still don't expect too much in increase in performance. In my estimations the upgraded processor can give around 4-5 more internet tabs as well as opening another application at the same time.

With the rating of 2.8, the 1015PX is a very good cloud computing tool to do some MS office work, internet browsing, Social Networking as well as some music and 480p video playing. Although today its the trend of HD capable devices the 1015PX is still not that strong enough to play 1080p videos especially when its via youtube cause you will encounter jumps in playing, as for 720p contents its quite capable in playing but only when few applications are opened. 

The 1015PX is built for people who are on the go, where cloud computing is essential since they can access their file via online or just surf on the go. The portability of the 1015PX, with the compatibility to be used with mobile broadbands is the ideal situation where the 1015PX is best at.

Speakers of the 1015PX is still the same as the previous seashell netbooks where its still powered by SRS. Overall the speakers can kick but not that clear when in high volumes

Battery Life

The 1015PX claims up to 11 hours of mobility, of course here in the Philippines its obvious that we don't use our LCD brightness in 30% and run on power saving all of the time. In my test, I used the Auto-High Performance of the Super Hybrid Engine of the 1015PX, it is where it controls automatically the CPU when you need more power.
In my test I got a total of 7 hours and 44 minutes using the Wi-Fi on, surfing for youtube videos and SNS at the same time. 


  • Battery Saving Mode - Auto Power Saving
  • LCD Brightness - 40%
  • Wi-Fi On
  • Bluetooth Off
  • Using Earphones

The Asus 1015PX is a very good netbook as its now capable in playing 720p videos, upgrading the multimedia experience of the consumers. Even though its not 1080p its not that significant since the resolution of the 1015PX can't reach 1920x1080.

Overall the 1015PX is an outright perfect mobile companion, suitable for the everyday on the go persons.
