Summary: This is my third netbook. I would have to say i am extremely impressed. The graphics card nividia Ion really sets this netbook apart. I can watch hulu full screen HD without lag. Something that most netbooks can't do.
Summary: Ok, the title is actually Asus's motto. Basically, I love this computer so far. I have a larger Dell 17" laptop but was looking for something with close to laptop power, but a smaller form factor and waited 3 months for the 1201n to be released based on it's dual processor and nVidia graphics chip.
Summary: [Updated Aug 18, 2012] Well, I still have my 1201N and have grown to love it and rely on it regularly. I never sent it back to ASUS for repair and never upgraded the hard-drive. I have used the headphone jack several times without problem but usually listen to music on my Kindle Fire.
Summary: First the plus - it's a perfectly sized netbook with a very bright accurate screen. I bought it after giving up my Gateway 1435 which has an 11.6" screen. The extra 1/2" plus brighter and better screen actually makes a big difference in the readability of the screen. Now for the minuses.
Works like a mini desktop! Great for students, developers, and business professionals.

Summary: I'm an MIS (Management Information Systems) student. I needed a laptop or netbook I could take with me to the labs that was capable of decently matching the power of a desktop system and that didn't weigh 10+ pounds and break my student-sized budget.
A Brief Review for a Netbook that Gets the Job Done
8 June 2010
Summary: I debated for about six months on what Netbook to pick up. My wife was using an Acer 8.9" 270n version with the 1024x600 res. and she loves it. I was sick of lugging around my 15.4" HP Laptop that is a powerhouse but a pain to take back and forth to work everyday.
Summary: Thought a netbook could not handle the new games? Well wrong. The ASUS Eee PC 1201N is just what any avid gamer wants while traveling light. Granted the AUS Eee PC 1201N does not have the horse power to run CPU intensive apps ... but who wants that when you are on the go.
Summary: Slow as molasses! It takes 10 minutes to boot Windows, and you cannot play streaming videos nor listen to streaming audio, it just can't handle it. Other than that, it's a great little notebook. Quiet, reliable, with plenty of storage capacity, and good battery life.
