Overall pleased- few things I'd change in my "perferct netbook"
18 November 2012
Summary: Overall a very nice sturdy netbook, with a decent sized screen and keyboard. I wish I would have waited and purchased one just like this with a dual core processor. The graphics are nice but the processing speed just isn't enough to handle them. Compared to my mother's dell 10" she purchased, my computer still runs much faster. My major problem that I dock a star off, and almost a 2nd off, is that ASUS customer service is horrible. And why do I need their help?
ASUS Eee Seashell 1201N-PU17-BK Netbook are of good use

Excerpt: This laptopis very durable for one. Ive dropped this computer on many occasions its still functioning with no extream scrathes. For a small computer it is very powerful. The webcam is quite clear. The internet connection often takes a while to assist. I have the 10in Now on the bad side. I recently have found that the mouse pad is unresponsive. It could be a settings error or human error but I had to hook up a mouse through the USB port.
i love the ASUS Eee pc im actually typing this review on it now.

Excerpt: Ok i have been uswing this ASUS Eee pc for about nine month's now and i adore it. It's great for a first laptop and it has the biggest keyboard the desingers could fit on it. Im actualy typeing this reveiw on it now. The Eee pc has ok ram for its size mine has about 1.7 gig's of ram on it at the moment. The machine is exeptionaly fast great if you just want to surf the web, but if u would like to use a graphic's software you might have some problems.
Excerpt: People say that netbooks are small and should/can only be used for email. that you cant play any major games on the computer (wrong because i play sims 2 on mines) and that the batterie wont last long, and just that it dosnt do as last as much as laptops do. Well with this netbook they couldn't be more wrong. The netbook allows me to do much more than just check my email.
The ASUS EeePC 1201N is the best little netbook around.

Excerpt: This netbook has a relatively large 12.1 inch screen and very responsive keyboard. It also has great battery life going almost 7 hours between charges. It's great for people on the go. Very light, yet comfortable to use, you don't have to squint to see the screen. It slips into your carry on bag very easily for travel and fits comfortably on your lap or airplane tray. I like it so much I use at home too instead of my bigger, heavier laptop.
Excerpt: My husband and I purchased this laptop when our old Dell laptop died on us. We wanted something that not only could we take with us when we travel, but also that we could easily take room to room in our house. At the same time, we wanted something that could double as a dvd player for our daughter when we travel. This laptop had the highest ratings for the price and battery life. It works great. While it is heavier than I would like, it isn't too heavy to take with...
Summary: I've had this netbook for a little more than a year and use it almost everyday. It really takes its time loading up applications or programs. I tried using Photoshop on here. It works, but lags sometimes. The battery life is more like 3.5 hours. And it can really really overheat. Besides its slow loading times, I like how it's really portable and light. The 12.1-inch screen is a decent screen size to watch some netflix.
Summary: I ordered this item for Christmas. I got it in under a week. It has good performance. The only problem I have is that it's only a single core while the 1201n has 2. I had to reinstall the OS due to constant BSOD's.
Summary: This is great netbook with nvidia ion gpu chipset, My wife uses this laptop for over 1+ year, good for office usage, later i topped up ram to 4GB(2x2gb modules), i know it supports 8gb, but didn't bother increasing more than 4gb, since 4gb single modules are ridiculously expensive. I installed Linux in it, works well.
Summary: This is a very portable netbook. Great on battery life and lite enough to carry around unnoticed. Where the 1201PN lacks in cpu power it makes up for in gpu power. The intel Atom core is fast and has two threads to help will multitasking but don't try playing any cpu heavy games like Left 4 Dead, or Mass Effect 2. The ION2 is strong enough to allow you to run the games but with so many things happening under the hood the games are sluggish.
