Pros: Computer works great now. The home router Dlink N300 is incompatible with this computer using Windows 8.1. It came originally with Windows 8 and the wireless used to work. I can hook up to my hotspot and it's great!!
Summary: It comes with Windows 8.0 and I generally like it a lot. However, it is so TOUCHY. If you don't do everything just right, it whisks you off to another site, which diminishes some of the enjoyment of being online. The 8.0 is not big deal.....easy to get accustomed to; it does not come with any form of word processing software. No Microsoft office, etc........they told me I could use Wordpad, but my grandson installed something better.
Summary: Would of been nice to have a little more ram, but 2gb works if you have swap space installed. Like mentioned above just add SSD and you will have a good Netbook that will last years.
Pros: This makes a wonderful Linux netbook, if you need to safe a few dollars just get this version same as the Linux version and hardware is supported. Just put your favorite distro and it will work well.
Cons: Comes with Windows big negative as you have to pay the Windows tax, but it was cheap. Bios was not the most current version, but updated works fine.
Excerpt: I have this Asus EEE PC laptop with me for just around 6 months, but one thing I can say is that I can be with it forever. With its different features and the advantages it gives me really makes me a satisfied owner of this laptop. I had a different laptop before, but when it broke, I had to buy another one. I chose this new EEE PC 1015PEM because of different reasons. First was its size and weight.
Summary: I wanted to like this computer and I did for just about a month before the keyboard failed. Since it's a column of keys I'm guessing it's the keyboard matrix that has failed. It has all the hallmarks of a hardware failure since an external USB keyboard works fine. I really did like this computer once I got used to the funky touchpad mouse. I also put a fair amount of time into getting it all configured just right. I'm hoping Amazon will issue a full refund.
Summary: Buying this was my first negative experience in over a few dozen newegg orders. This product says it is a touchscreen tablet pc... What I got was just your standard Asus netbook, not a tablet pc or even a touchscreen. I asked newegg what happened and they could not even tell me if it is labeled wrong on their website or if i received the wrong thing by accident.
Summary: Bought this for organizing photos on a 3-week trip. Within a week the SD slot stopped ejecting SD cards. Also this computer is so weak it can't play movies in iTunes because there isn't enough memory to keep up with both sound and video. (You end up with a lag and movies become unwatchable within about 20 minutes) Except for these two issues it has worked OK, but given what I bought the computer for, I find the first issue is bad enough to make the computer unacceptable.
Summary: while the size fits the need that was there the keys keep freezing & the wireless seems to be having issues staying properly connected k keep getting limited access while my cell phone gets good signal. windows 8 only makes sense with touch screen k that was my error.
Summary: We bought this computer for our travels but it's so slow that we had no time to actually use it before leaving one place and going to another with Wi-Fi connection. Besides the letters are too small and when we enlarged the text it didn't fit the screen.
