Questionable compatability and match for Asus Netbook.

Summary: Difficult to insert and computer wouldn't recognize the battery. No light lit when charging and no meter on the battery once installed. Upon reading notes from other purchasers, I jiggled the battery once in place and recognition took place.
4 adapters and 2 batteries later, still no computer power

Summary: I love this computer. All my files and pictures and family videos are on it. But it is dead. I really do not know how many adapters and batteries I have gone through. However I am sure I spent more on replacements than I did on the netbook in the first place.
Summary: even when priced way down, this computer is worthless. no matter how simple the task--whether it be checking email, listening to music, or downloading files--the asus has a knack for crashing.
Summary: I bought this item and had trouble with the wifi card. Be aware! The wifi card is defective and dies sooner than anything else in the computer. It would suddenly not access the internet and therefore, I could not even update my security software or get automatic downloads or anything.
Summary: There were a few netbooks I considered but I chose this to try the ASUS brand products.I have used this netbook on 3 trips overseas. Never again will I purchase an ASUS anything .I've never owned a netbook so I am comparing it to my old HP laptop from 6 years ago.
