Summary: I love this PC, it's portable yet sturdy. It is a great investment for the money. The only thing I dislike is that it doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, but I can purchase that separately. Also, the battery it came with holds a good charge for a used computer.
Summary: I have several of these computers. I use Kubuntu Linux on my desktop, with a mix of applications for web browsing, accounting, software programming, and so forth. I use a 1080p external monitor and add-on DVD, keyboard and mouse, all connected through a powered USB hub. All of this works all the time. The only issue with this computer is, that ASUS moved from replaceable so-dimm memory to non-expandable 1 Gb soldered on the motherboard. Hence the "former" in the title.
Summary: I got this netbook in white and I think it's really awesome! It's my first computer, and the delivery was fairly speedy. The price is just right for what you get. There are some periodic freezes and if you have music playing when it freezes it make a horrible noise until it unfreezes. So just don't have your volume up too high! You can't change the background but I downloaded something so that I can. I use it for social networking, blogging and occasional YouTube videos.
Summary: This is my fourth Asus netbook, and until the previous one, I was always very happy with them. One of them I dropped and broke its screen, and one of them I spill coffee on, but both had done me good service until then. The first one I ever bought, a 7-inch one with Linux installed, is still working, and my granddaughter has been using it. My previous Asus netbook, though, a 1015, had Windows 7 on it, and the 1 gb of RAM was not sufficient by a long shot.
