Awesome value for money and unbelievable battery life
13 March 2013
Excerpt: I had the choice of either buying a portable DVD player or a netbook to keep my toddler entertained for long drives. I decided on a netbook mainly because its just a few dollars extra and serves many purposes. After reading multiple reviews, I narrowed down on this one mainly for its battery life. Even while playing video, with bluetooth and wireless off and screen at maximum brightness, I still get around 6 hours of life. With regular browsing I get around 8.

Summary: The computer works OK. However it was advertized as having Windos XP in it (that matched my needs). But in reality it had Windows 7. So I had difficulties in adapting my software to it. Luckily it did work, but not without troubles. For instance, I still could not uninstall TandMicro antivirus software despite multiple attempts and advices from all over the World.
Excerpt: Have had my little notebook for a good year and just love it. Did some major research before even considering which netbook to purchase, especially when I have used nothing but HP computers for quite a long time. The reviews and the price of this little gem couldn't be beat. Basically got it for traveling due to the size and weight. I also use it in my kitchen as well, while I enoy my Chai.
Excerpt: The Asus Eee PC 1005HA-EU2X Netbook is compact and perfect for a frequent traveler. It has a long battery life so is you don't have access to an outlet you don't have to worry too much. It seems to do a good job finding wireless connections for you and connecting to them so if you are ever in a pinch and need to use a public unlocked internet connection, this netbook will find it if there's any signal at all. The keyboard takes a bit of getting use to.
Excerpt: I bought this netbook when my brother asked for a portable light weight laptop that he could carry with him since he goes all over the place so often. I knew a laptop was out of the option since they can become really heavy after carrying them for a prolonged amount of time, plus they're just too big. This netbook was a great choice. The Atom processors aren't the best CPUs and the 1GB memory isn't ideal, but it gets the job done.
Excerpt: I Purchesed this laptop to do reports on and keep up with inventory, for THE SONS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION, markiting commitee. It serves the purpos that I bought it for, I am very sasitified with this product, for what I use it for.
