Let’s start with the Eee’s 1000H packaging. The box it is packaged in has a sturdy feel to it, a good thing considering there’s a computer in it. Notice that ''Eee'' now stands for Easy – Excellent – Exciting instead of the original Easy to learn, work and play. Apparently, it is an "excellent mobile internet device" and provides "exciting multimedia enjoyment." I'm a little doubtful about the multimedia claim, but I'll keep that for the testing phase.
Once the seal is broken and the box opened up, you are welcomed by the Eee resting inside a cloth-like bag. The netbook sits on a cardboard shell that provides extra protection against shipping damage. When I first took it out of the box, I realized how small it really was since I had never seen one outside of pictures.
Digging further into the box, I found a sleeve, a very welcomed addition for protecting the netbook when carrying it around. Under that, there is the usual stuff, a 6 cell battery, AC adapter, user manual, warranty card and a support DVD. There is also a piece of cloth included to get those fingerprints off the glossy surface.
Now that we've went through all that, let's take a look at the pièce de résistance!
