Summary: It is a good netbook for everyday use, such as online gaming, word processing and internet browsing. Able to use Adobe Photoshop with fewer crashes. I didn't like the button below the trackpad, too bad to use, better use with a portable mouse. For the price, is great.
Pros: - Good battery, - Plays videos in full HD, - The processor is fine for everyday tasks, - It's compact and light weight, - It has a good design
Cons: - Button below the trackpad aren't soft, it's a little bit uncomfortable, - The netbook came with Windows 7 Starter
Summary: Before I bought this netbook the specs seem very nice, I also read many reviews but only if you are the owner you can have a true opinion about it.
Pros: 12.1" Inch Monitor, USB 3.0 Port, Latest AMD E-450 CPU, ATI 6320 Capable of basic 3D Gaming, 4 GB RAM & 500 GB HDD, Can be upgraded to 8GB, Bluetooth, Fair casing for fingerprints, Good quality of external plastics, Good Webcam, Good Wi-Fi Range
Cons: Cheap LCD Screen, Bigger/thicker than other netbooks, Lack of design, Awful keyboard, Mediocre touchpad, Jack of AC adapter is small/fragile, Screen does not tilt back to 150 degrees, Stereo Speakers could be louder, Access is not easy for upgrading RAM/HDD
Excerpt: A few days ago, a friend asked me to recommend a laptop at a good price and well built. And I remembered about the 1215N Eee PC from Asus, a model that has been sitting on my couch for two days waiting for an honest review, but I managed …
Excerpt: Is it a laptop or a netbook? Frankly, after weeks of owning an Asus EEE PC 1215T, I’m still not quite sure. One thing I’m certain about is that this portable piece of technology simply kicks butt.
Summary: So much worse than my expectation. Horrible drivers make the ION2 graphics almost worthless. After trying more driver versions than I can remember, I had to settle with an outdated version from the ASUS website. When playing any game, the GPU will never use more than 50% of available clock/mem meaning that performance is poor. Even games like AOM or CS:S are unplayable. Hundreds of topics open on NVIDIA forums explaining performance issues and yet none of them addressed.
A speedy, compact, portable laptop for all your needs!

Excerpt: "...across a range of different ASUS laptops. As someone who had never heard much, if anything, about ASUS as a company, I decided to do a little research into the company. On their website they describe their laptop range as being 'a well established and respected brand for both home and business users. These laptops have the right balance of quality specifications at excellent prices.' I found this to be quite a nice introduction into the company, and ...
Pros: Small size, quick speed, attractive appearence
Cons: Gets a tad slow at times, and could do with a bigger memory
Faulty touchpad, hard keypad and very reflective screen

Summary: I'm returning this laptop because the touchpad didn't work - it freezes after a couple of minutes of use and the only way to use the computer is with a mouse. But other than that, the keypad is not great and the screen is ridiculously reflective. I'm fed up and going for an macbook.
Excerpt: This netbook uses Intel Atom D525 (1.8 GHz) that has "Dual Core" technology, so it's faster than average netbooks. It's also faster than its predecessor, ASUS 1215P, that use Intel Atom N550 (1.5 GHz). This netbook has 2 GB DDR3 RAM, faster than average netbook that use DDR2. The downside is that you can't upgrade it. The real strength of this netbook is its display. It uses 12.1" "WXGA Glare LED" screen with 1366 x 768 resolutions.
Summary: I ordered this as an early Christmas present for my wife who needs to be able to work on the move sometimes and her old laptop, whilst perfectly good, is a nuisance to carry about.I spent a good few weeks researching the options and was initially put off of this one by some reviewers who mentioned the springy keyboard but decided it was probably not that important and I can confirm that it isn't, the keyboard does give a bit but that's only going to be an issue if you...
