Summary: ASUS makes nice netbooks but, they process at a crawl when all 3 USB ports are being used. I will use it only now for watching movies and listening to tunes. Nice entry level laptop. If you want more powerful PC look else where
Summary: This netbook is light to carry, fast, and the battery lasts a long time between charging. I thoroughly detest Windows 8. This isn't a touchscreen unit, and Windows 8 is basically a useless operating program for this model.
Summary: It's a competent netbook, and works great as an ultra-portable Linux system. Installing Xubuntu on it was easy. My big complaint with it is that the touchpad is pretty terrible, but it's fine when used with an external mouse.
Summary: Most of the things about the laptop has already been covered by many other reviewers. So, I won't do that here. Since the item I bought is an Ubuntu OS version of ASUS, I want to mention my experience it as one product. I received this laptop and have been using it for 6 hours.
Hardware okay, but the installes Ubuntu is just too heavy!

Summary: The main problem with this device is it's operating system. The installed Ubuntu is just too heavy, especially when it comes to Unity. I've installed Xubuntu, an Ubuntu which uses another desktop (XFCE instead of Unity). Now it runs at least 5 times faster and you are really able to work with it.
