Asus Eee PC vs Van Der Led Jisus Laptop

Updated on December 7, 2008

Asus Eee PC vs Van Der Led Jisus Laptop

Tiny laptops - not to be confused with UMPCs - are cracking into the PC market at a quick pace. There are some interesting features that put these small laptops in a space all thier own. With prices ranging from $299 - to under $600.00 each what do you expect to get? You may be surprised.

Asus Eee PC vs Van Der Led Jisus

 

  • Specs

Asus Eee PC - The Asus Eee PC sports a 7 inch widescreen display and a QWERTY keyboard. The hard drive is an SSD (Solid State Drive) and depending on which model you choose the size will range from 2GB to 8GB. Ram also will range from 512MB to 1GB (not expandable). The battery life will range from 2.8 hours to 3.5 hours. There is a built in card reader webcam, speakers and microphone. It only adds 2 pounds to your load.

Van Der Led Jisus - The Jisus has a 8.9 inch display and I assume there is a QWERTY keyboard under the lid. All photos I've seen has the keyboard hidden. There is a 4GB SSD drive and the battery life is suppose to be up to 4.5 hours. As far as the weight it will probably be a bit heavier because of the extra 1.9 inchs.

  • Operating System

Asus Eee PC - Linux users will love this little jewel. The Asus Eee PC typically ships with the Linux OS but they are also compatible with - and can be purchased with - Microsoft Windows XP. Included browser is Firefox.

Van Der Led Jisus - Linux seems to be winning out. This Laptop also runs Linux (Abuntu in this case).

  • Software

Asus Eee PC - Professionals and casual users alike will appreciate the pre-installed software. Open Office is compatible with Microsoft Office so files can be opened, read and edited. There is software installed for email and other productivity functions.

Van Der Led Jisus - I have not been able to clearly find what software titles are preloaded. Hopefully by the release date (May 25th, 2008)

  • Color Availability

Asus Eee PC - Small but they not shy. The colors read like paint chips and include - Pure White, Galaxy Black, Blush Pink, Sky Blue and Lush Green.

Van Der Led Jisus - They are not quite as small and also not shy. The colors include white, brown, green, pink and black.

  • Connectivity

Asus Eee PC - Built in connectivity is 802.11b/g WiFi so any hotspot puts you on the internet. An Ethernet port will get you connected as well. Sharing pictures, emails and uploading videos to Flickr or YouTube on the go with such a small laptop should be easy and convenient for anyone. Video chat and VOIP works well with the integrated Webcam. Other ports include 3 USB 2.0 ports,

Van Der Led Jisus - Also has 802.11b/g WiFi and Ethernet. No webcam is built in. Other ports include VGA output, audio jacks and 2 USB ports. Again, there is not a lot of information available yet with what type of browser or software is preinstalled or that can be installed by the user. I am not a Linux user so again I assume that the Linux OS would be similar to the Asus Eee PC.

  • Learning Curve

Asus Eee PC - The learning curve is small. The Eee PC was designed with a user friendly graphic interface so you won't need a user's manual. This is a great little laptop for the kids - tough and easy to use.

Van Der Led Jisus - I have not found much information on ease of use - I would assume that since it is Linux the same ease of use would apply.

Van Der Led Jisus Laptops

After reading this you may think that I prefer the Asus Eee PC over the Van Der Led Jisus laptop. That is not the case - exactly. It is more the case of lack of information.

From what I read elsewhere - the Chinese want the Jisus to resemble the Eee PC enough to get the write up but to be different enough so not to depend on design and technology such as chip makers like Intel.

I can see where either of these small laptops would be handy. Just like jewelry when you travel - wear things that function like the expensive pieces - so if you loose it or it gets damaged you lose less. When you zip around town these little laptops are eye catching and easy to use and carry.

      I think you nail it when you say "this is a great little lap top for the kids" That was music to my ears. As a computer dummy I have no idea what to get the grandkids as their needs go from toys to real computers. I just know I don't want to get an expensive delicate laptop for them to take to school and knock around like they will do even if being careful.

      Thanks for the good info.
