Well, that’s what The Gadget Showwere trying to decide yesterday by putting the two gadgets through their paces. In usual Gadget Show style, the team were set a number of challenges to use the tech to the best of it’s abilities and ASUS’ Eee PC Seashell 1005PEG did a dam good job!

The first challenge revolved around ease-of-use and connectivity when it comes to finding, downloading and playing music. Now, the plucky Suzi Perry did start the challenge with the Archos 5, a fully functional media player that could download music via wi-fi, but there was no wi-fi connection available! So, enter the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PEG, with 3G capabilities, 1G Ram, 160GB hard drive and a built in webcam. The challenge was lost, but showed the capabilities of the Eee PC.

The full Qwerty keyboard proved to be a winner for challenge two, and the 10” LED Backlit screen and smooth, quick 3G connectivity aided in further victory for the third challenge.

Check out the full episode of Channel Five’s The Gadget Show for more challenges for the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PEG below.
