Summary: It's a very funky small well made computer with a decent hard drive but its so SLOW. I only used it to surf the net and as a spare backup hard drive but with mcafee installed if took literally 30 seconds to do anything. It's so bad I've had to I've if to my brother in law as. Christmas present!
Summary: I had this for couple of years and then the screen died. It was a good concept but totally useless due to under-performing hardware. Don't bother investing in netbooks now as they are clumsy. I was so frustrated with speed that I trashed the XP and installed Ubuntu on it but even that was slow (and this really is a shame). My original motivation was to use it as a media player for long haul flights but in hindsight I think an iPad would have been better.
Summary: The cutest little laptop...I still love the design and ease of use. Can't fault it as a general item. Bought it soley for internet use and harddrive space for my travels for 4months (photos and music). I did the obligatory online research and decided this one sounded perfect for me. So got it a few weeks before I left for my travels and had time to play with it and see it was all working ok.
Excerpt: I originally ordered the Eee PC 1005HA seashell as a Christmas gift and then decided to return it, due to a few irritations. The netbook is no cheaper than it's competitors products and does have very good reviews, apart from a defect with the charger that means that the battery won't charge, that was noted by a few reviews.
Summary: hi, i bought this netbook a couple of weeks ago. it was going all good. but when i bought it said it has 10 and a half hours battery life and the the second i got it i read all the instructions and followed along then when i charged it (fully charged) i clicked on the little small icon at the bottom right and it said 100% charged and it said 8 hours 30 minutes left , i wasnt happy so then a week ago a few buttons got stuck and that was enoying but luckily i fixed...
Summary: The Asus Eee PC is an excellent netbook PC. Light and compact. Easy to use. Window XP is pre-loaded. BUT BE CAREFUL - when you purchase this item through Amazon, they will suggest you buy a Kingston 2GB memory chip as well. DON'T!!! Both the netbook version of Microsoft Windows XP and the 16 bit operating system mean that the Eee PC can only use 1GB of RAM thus the extra memory chip is a waste of money.
Summary: While I agree that this is a fantastic product I do have one serious problem with it. If I plug an external usb device in then explorer locks up. I can still click on things but if I move the mouse over the Start button I just get the egg timer. Interestingly, if I attach the device (and I've tried a few different ones) before booting up it works fine. I can't find any help on the official Asus site.
Excerpt: Я покупала этот нетбук около 1,5 лет назад, в Связном3, в рассрочку. Очень нужен был интернет на работе, а с рабочего компьютера это было невозможно ввиду трафика и постоянного палева со стороны Ит-службы. Привлек он меня несколькими вещами: размер, вид, вес, удобная клавиатура, конечно-цена. Вместе с ним пришлось купить и милую сумочку для переноски, ну и само собою беспроводной интернет.
