Summary: The netbook works fine although screen is too small for browsing the internet. But its fine for lectures at school very easy to carry around and does not take a lot of space in my handbag. However wifi is very poor. At university I hardly can connect and at home I had to install 3 repeaters.
Summary: The big brands have caught up on price, but Asus doesnt seem to have caught up on build quality. The exterior, specially around the screen, seems quite basic and makes the overall product look cheap.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Acer Aspire 2920 purely because of its battery life. I needed a battery to last at least six hours as my frequent journeys are about 12 hrs long. Asus is a slow netbook even after I have upgraded the memory to 2G.
Summary: I have had this product for about two weeks and it works fine. We will see as it gets older. I wasn't familiar with this brand before but after doing some research found it to be quite good. I enjoy it and really like its lightweight mobile structure. I can take it anywhere with ease!
Summary: Why did I leave Toshiba? The Asus 1005HA is nice apart from 2 things: the power adaptor and touchpad. The former stops working periodically and has to be put in the freezer for 30 minutes to get it going again. The touchpad: the cursor freezes sometimes, don't know why.
Summary: Bought my daughter this netbook for xmas and this is just what she wanted. Looks great, nice and light and the battery life is fantastic. On the slight downside. My daughter uses Microsoft Messenger or Windows Live Messenger as it is called now to talk to her friends.
Summary: Sorry to be the guy that rains on the parade of this otherwise beautifully designed and classy product. I love the thing but like so many many others I am having very serious charging issues. the forums are full of people who like me complain that the charger dies.
Summary: I bought this and it lived up to my expectations, it was really great until I switched it on and there was no picture on the screen! I think the back light was broken (it was used a lot until then with no problems).
Summary: Although I did review all/most contributors points of view of the Asus Shell on Amazon and I purchased it on the issue of the long battery life(which is very good), when I started to use it I found that my fingers were tending to hit more than the key I was aiming at.
