Asus EeePC 1000HE, should I or should I not?

I’ve been really wanting to buy a netbook ever since I saw the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 but I didn’t think it was worth the P27k price tag so I decided to hold off.

Now I’ve been reading anything I could on Asus’ latest 10″ netbook, the EeePC 1000HE. It received favorable reviews from and even got an Editor’s Choice from PCMag.

The two features that got me thinking hard on getting the 1000HE is its Lithium-Ion 6-cell battery (7 – 8 hrs) and its chiclet style keyboard which is similar to that of the Macbook and Sony Vaio. Not only that but the pre-order price will only cost me $370 from JR Electronics ($374 from Amazon) with free shipping.

If there’s something to hate about the 1000HE, that would be its 3.2 lb weight which is 2 ounce heavier than its rival the MSI Wind. But that’s because of its extended battery. Besides, who can beat that price?

My blogging gig can pay for the netbook so should I or should I not? Whatcha think? Text CALVINSHUB [yes|no] to 2332. Hahaha.
