  • Abstract:  I was selected to be one of a group of bloggers who’ll get the use of an ASUS Eee PC 1008 netbook for a year. This isn’t quite the typical netbook though, as this is a “Seashell Karim Rashid Edition” … and before you ask, no — I had never heard of Ka...

  • At the end of the day, the Karim Rashid Collection ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1008P is a beautiful, if not, spectacular netbook. As a matter of fact, this little netbook is so lovely that it resembles a luxury gadget. Overall, the Karim Rashid Collection A...

  • Attractive looks, 2 GB RAM which is twice the amount of typical Netbook,
  • Expensive, you pay more for the looks and not hardware components, doesn’t come with some of the high end features that you’d expect in a $500 Netbook,
  • Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Collection makes you pay more for the looks and the components inside are typical of a standard Netbook except for the 2 GB RAM and Windows 7 Premium. We will recommend you this Netbook only if you want to grab attention...

  • Nice design for a Netbook; twice the RAM of typical Netbooks
  • More expensive than other Netbooks, but lacks some high-end features
  • This sharp-looking version of the popular Eee PC Netbook has more RAM and a bigger hard drive than entry-level models, but it features the same CPU and low-res display.

  • More expensive than other netbooksTerrible viewing angles Short battery life
  • Unfortunately, we think we have to add the 1008P to the list of laptops that suffer from performance issues at the expense of better design, like the HP Envy and Dell Adamo. While we love the textured chassis (in brown!) and think it's one good looking ne...
