Summary: Ordered this little laptop for my sister. I set it up for her, which included upgrading from windows 8.0 to 8.1, downloading and installing all of the updates (took many hours), and installing classic shell so she had a windows 7 like start button. I also have one of these myself, so the process was easy for me. The only negative is that this thing can be quite slow because the processor is a dated Intel Celeron.
Summary: This netbook is limited in what a computer can do .It is sluggish and gets slower with use until you defragment it , which is really a sluggish procedure. I like it for it's small size .I take it everywhere and find the wi fi works great .I do email and read the news where ever I happen to be.For me it works fine. It also is a money maker if you use the internet a lot for your business..
Summary: muy buena computadora, la parte exterior es hermosa, muy buenos acabados, traia 2 gb de ram, perfectos, un poco lenta pero es por el procesador, todo lo demas corre bien, si quiere una maquina para trabajar office, internet, esta es la indicada
Summary: All I needed was a laptop to carry around to class and take notes with. This does just that! It lagged a lot in the beginning and I really hated it, but after updating it to Windows 8.1 it seems to work a bit better, it's still a little slow upon start up but for only $200 I wasn't really expecting much. The batter lasts a really long time which is great! I can charge it up over night and it'll last pretty much all day long during school.
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: This would probably be 2-3 stars if there were anything else comparable, but since there isn't, I'll have to give credit just for making a cheap laptop without Windows available at all. The nice things about it are the decent screen (finally a cheap laptop with better than 1024x600 resolution, so at least all my applications will fit on the screen) and the SD card port which holds the card flush with the case (This being the main thing I hated about the Chromebook).
Summary: The 1015E with Ubuntu is the perfect combination of mobility and performance. Its 1366x768 display is on par with larger and more expensive laptops, and the 320GB hard drive is more than sufficient for everyday computing tasks. One thing to keep in mind is that the drive is non-upgradeable, at least without a lot of hassle. The included Ubuntu 12.04 LTS operating system performs reliably and makes efficient use of screen real estate.
More versatile than a tablet and smaller than a regular laptop.

Summary: Almost identical in size to the Eee netbook, and lacking a DVD drive, calling this a "laptop" is a slight exaggeration. However, screen size is usable, keyboard feels "right" and the mousepad is - - a mousepad. An external drive or flash drive will work in lieu of the DVD, if one is needed. Set-up was a snap, and the wireless LAN connects instantly to whatever access point you choose.
Summary: So far, I like this little notebook pretty well. Ubuntu is a bit different than Windows, but it does all of the things I need this unit for. I bought this notebook to replace and aging Acer netbook that really has served me well, however it's been running slower and slower, and with an upcoming motorcycle adventure trip in the works, I decided it would probably be better to have a little more of a serious amount of computing power available.
Summary: I got this netbook to replace an Asus I'd had for four years. Its power connector had gotten so worn after years of constant plugging and unplugging that the adapter no longer physically fit in the socket. However, I adored the long battery life, responsive touchpad, and excellent portability of the old unit.
