    Replacement for Asus Eee pc 1005HA

    I have an old Asus Eee 1005HA pc that I have been using with Windows 7. I love the size and ease of moving it around in my house. I only use it at home. The problem is that it is not powerful enough for some apps that I want to use. Do you have any recommendations for a much more powerful pc but one that retains the form factors of the Eee? Thanks

    I'd suggest a Surface Pro as it has a similar screen size to the Eee vs the ROG's 17" screen and at half the price. HTH

    Yep...my vote is with the Surface Pro 3 as well....but it's expensive. If you still want the Asus brand then the Asus Transformer Series is a very good option.

    One response to all of you: thanks very much. After looking at all your suggestions, I will probably be going with the Asus Transformer that seems to be basically the same size but with more oomph. It is also much closer to the price range that I can afford. I really appreciate your taking the time to help me.

    I have an eee 1007p. I know what you mean.

    I'd consider a high end Intel NUC like box. Gigabyte and Asus make comparable boxes. It is hard to have a serious CPU and impossible to have anything other than a mobile GPU (which none of them may have) in such boxes due to limited power output and heat exchange.

    If it uses a mobile CPU and you want a quad core make sure it is a quad core Faster is better. >3GHz is pretty good. You really want 8GB RAM at least.

    Thanks for the added information. The NUC will not do it for me because I want the convenience of a netbook since I often move it to different parts of my house. Iv'e looked at the Asus Transformer T100 some more and it keeps looking like it will be my choice.
