Summary: This netbook is excellent in all aspects that I have made it go thru. Lightweight and function is like a high dollar desktop, Wish it had a dvd drive and if it came with a longer life battery although the standard battery has a 3 hour use time the 9 cell li ion has a much longer use time,8 plus hours! between recharge! Great netbook and used is great at around $100,some $80 some $110. Highly reccomend for anyone,novice or expert.
Summary: It is quick it is easy to use.the start up is so quick you don't have to wait. they are easy to replace parts if something breaks.they also take a lot of abuse. I have two of them which I would not part with them. I bought the second laptop because my wife had one. when I used hers I loved it.there is nothing that I dislike about this laptop. I have a dell and after using the toshiba i put the dell to rest.
This is the best purchase I made this year, so far.

Summary: I initially purchased the ASUS netbook for my daughter (college student). She was looking for something to research on the internet, something fast and dependable, and portable. With the ASUS this is all rolled into one portable netbook. It is easy to operate and she easily completes her reports while on the go. I am considering one for myself.
Super sturdy machine. Very dependable as one would expect from ASUS!

Summary: Been dealing with PC's for 20 years. I've found ASUS mother boards in every brand of computer and, they are made very well. Don't hesitate if you can get a nice ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB because of their performance, dependability and durability. The "H" means it has a real hard drive (about 160GB) inside instead of a tiny ssd (about 4GB or 8GB) and the "A" will assure it has the Atom processor by Intel. Not sure what the "B" indicates.
Perfect computer for small tasks, and browsing the internet.

Summary: Perfect net book for the cost. Ultra fast boot up time and very easy to reformat. If you want a gaming laptop this is not for you. Pros: Great battery life, Super light weight. Cons: No Cd-rom.
Excerpt: I got this netbook for a second computer for when our laptop was in the shop. It is so lightweight that I can take it anywhere. The screen is a little small so sometimes it is hard to see what I am used to seeing on the laptop, but it gets me by in a pinch. Have had no problems with it in the few months I have had it. The brand was recommend by more than one salesperson at Best Buy so I got it since it was the cheapest brand they had.
Excerpt: About 3 years ago I bought 1005 Asus netbook. I heard good reviews about the Asus brand, so chose this one over a different brand netbook. I am very glad I did. I am currently writing this review on my netbook and I love it! Even after 3 years, my netbook is running as well as it did on day one. It has a 10.1" screen and a HUGE 11 hour battery life. Since I use my netbook daily I no longer get 11 hours out of my battery, but that's to be expected after daily use.
Awesome economical practical product for this time in technology!

Summary: The ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB is a great product. Not needing a lot of technology to run my business I use it as my primary computer. Finding this model on EBay now between $100 & $150 makes this a great product for someone who doesn't need the latest gizmos. Pros:being portable & the option to add larger screen & keyboard, watch movies w/external dvd drive, & adding kindle for pc, You Tube shows how to disasemble & change components, Asus has 24hr free tech support, Operating...
Summary: What an outstanding netbook! Great keyboard with a very nice touch pad mouse. Worth every penny I paid! The screen is has fantastic resolution to it for the size, you barely notice that it's only 1024x600! Runs windows starter with no problem and windows 7 home like a champ! Definitely would purchase this again if I needed to replace it. Pros: Actual 8 hours of battery use! Fantastic keyboard & mouse. Great interface and size ONLY 3LBS!
