Great for travelling because of the size but that is all
7 April 2011
Summary: Bought this for travelling abroad as it is so compact. Only thing I did not like is the penny-pinching that is widespread now and that is installing the Windows 7 starter edition as standard. It is too bog basic for me. The paperwork that comes with it is naff and you get what you pay for.
Summary: I have not yet tested the battery life, which was one of the main reasons for buying this unit, so I can't comment on that. 1. I find it runs extremely slow; time after time I sit wondering if the click had registered until finally the screen appears. 2. Only 2 USBs.
signif power cord issues on otherwise great netbook
17 December 2010
Summary: great little netbook. BUT- bought new from Amazon in July 2010. Powercord just failed after 4 months use and replacement power cord has also had the same problem! which effectively renders the machine unreliable as I can't use it when I need it most.
Summary: The internal connector pin inside the netbook breaks off into the battery lead. This happened to me twice within a few months. I was then sent another laptop that was a downgraded version and nowhere near as good.
Summary: The eeepc was delivered without installing the required Driver set. The audio quality was very poor. I was not knowing what to do. Then I had to approach Asus site and downloaded the driver 64MB size. Then I installed the driver. Worked fine. Great sound quality the hardware components have.
Summary: ... in Kombination mit grottigem Kundenservice von Asus - von dieser Firma werde ich nichts mehr kaufen. Das Netbook an sich war für den Preis in Ordnung, hat ungefähr gehalten, was versprochen wurde (lange Akkulaufzeit, eher mäßige Leistung - für Internet und Office reichte es).
Summary: Ich habe zwei von den ASUS EEE 1001P. Sehr schoene Geraete, wenn sie laufen. Aber nun nach exakt 3 Jahren hat bei einem die eingebauten 160B-Seagate-Festplatten ihren Geist aufgegeben und die vom anderen muckt auch schon.
