Summary: Excellent quality and price. Works great. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 almost immediately. I especially like the fact that it is light and small. This will be a great travel buddy, as I am not very fond of tablets and touch screens.
Summary: It's not the fastest computer in the universe but if you just want to do some general internet browsing it's a good deal for the price. Ubuntu is a very useable operating system, especially for people with a little bit of Linux knowledge to begin with, and you can always switch to a different desktop environment if you're not a fan of the default one.
Summary: This laptop, or "netbook" if you prefer, fulfilled my simple computer needs such as video/filesharing, low graphics gaming, emailing, file organization, watching/streaming/listening to media and much more with competance. The wirless adaptor built in to this machine kicks ass. If you are tired of the touchscreen craze and you just want a computer that "does the job" this one does it, and well.
Summary: I previously had a 1015E-DS03 (see also my review there), but spilled a glass of coke all over it. Despite its age, there still doesn't seem to be anything else similar to this little machine when it comes to Linux compatibility so I bought a new one, only to find that the model number had changed slightly. The only change from the DS03 that I can see is that the lid has a matte finish. As with the DS03, OpenSuse 13.1 installs fine.
Summary: This is a very nice laptop for the money. It is perfectly fine for a little web surfing and email and that's all I need. I've had it for about a month and had no problems. It has the Ubuntu operating system so you need to have a little "geek" in you. Ubuntu isn't quite ready for prime time, in my opinion.
Summary: I wanted to like this product. I've purchased an Asus 1000HE netbook and I love it and still use it. I wanted a Linux netbook so I gave this one a try. The wireless connection kept dropping out, even when I was located 2 feet from my wireless router. None of my other wireless devices worked so unreliably. The mouse/touchpad was awful. Nearly impossible to cut/paste anything without it jetting off of the needed field.
