Summary: This computer is just so slow, the specs look good on paper but this machine just can't do anything! Takes so long just to open programs and windows. This gives me a bad taste of ASUS, we seriously don't ask much of this computer and it really struggles.
Summary: This gem of a notebook has now been available for over a year yet still nothing else can match it in terms of performance, weight, screen resolution and portability. It might not seem much but 2 gigs of RAM and a 1.8 dual core atom makes all the difference compared with the standard (and woefully...
Summary: I purchased the ASUS 1215N despite the warnings about the erratic Touchpad behavior some were experiencing. When the ASUS arrived, I was disappointed to find I was having the same problem described by others. The TP will start/stop working making it unusable.
Summary: I've looked for a 12 in netbook for a long time and finally decided on my 1215B-MU17. I didn't want to carry around a big bulky 15in, and 13in laptops didn't seem that much smaller. Ten inch was too small, so 12 inch is a perfect compromise.
Summary: Just purchased a Asus 1215b laptop and have had numersous problems with it. 1. The space bar needs to be pressed heavy for it to work. Asus recommended updating the chipset - this did not work, next they recommended to restore the laptop to factory default - ive spent 8 hours installing ram and...
Summary: I'll just jump into it! great great little computer, i play alot of video games on my desktop and i wanted something to play older games and just to chat or lug around the house so i'm not stuck in front of my computer nonstop.
Summary: If all you need is to type an email, this might work for you, but put any nominal demands on it and the system slows to a crawl. Add to that an incrediblly unresponsive touch pad which after hours of recalibration is still so worthless that an external mouse is absolutely required.
Summary: In general this netbook is great. The 1366x768 resolution for the 12.1" screen is ideal giving a high quality picture and decent pixel density. The graphics were great on most games I use. I couldn't believe how well Age of Empires III ran. I was getting 30 fps on medium settings.
Did not live up to 'Best Thing Since Sliced Bread' title, but it wasn't terrible

Summary: I bought this because on paper it looked like the best sub-$500 netbook with both performance and graphics potential. It had a GPU capable of light graphics work, it had a decent processor(according to reviews) and it came in a 12" package which was supposedly the middle man of 11" and 13" screens.
