Summary: This is my day to day personal computer, low energy usage, acceptable performance in Linux, no problems at all. It can get a bit hot because it doesn't have a fan intake, just an exhaust. Also, the hard drive is difficult to replace, requires to open all the case.
Summary: This is typical Asus, top quality and workmanship. The only problem I has had was with the touch pad but once I adjusted it there have been none. My touch pad was set to maximum pressure when new now it is set in the middle sensitivity and works well.
Summary: Much has already been written in other reviews so I'll just mention some of the extras: 1. Mine was advertised as 32-bit Windows 7, but arrived with the 64-bit version. So, you could say it wasn't as advertised, it was BETTER than advertised. 2.
Summary: Maybe I'm just a lucky man but OOTB the EEE 1215B has been a charmer. i get over 5 hours easily watching HD videos with Wifi and BT on, kill the Wifi and BT and I can add another hour, and I would point out that if you want even MORE time, and all you are doing is surfing, listening to music, or...
Summary: I bought on two occasions, and these brought defects. The first hard disk and the second LED screen. Asus does not have global warranty, this is a problem because I have to pay for the repair. With respect to the operation, it has a good processor. This is a great netbook.
Summary: I got this EEepC for about 3 months! been great... screen is good 12" much better than the 10" that I replaced. put in 8gb of memory and change out the 2.5" drive to the new Seagate momentus Hybrid drive .. its great !boot up is quick and fast, application runs ok!
Interesting super netbook with a quality control problem

Summary: I purchased one of these (in red, for just over a third of a kilobuck). I almost instantly had the reported trackpad issues and was preparing to do an RMA to get it fixed. After some serious Google searching, I decided to try to fix it myself, with total success.
Summary: I'm currently on my third 1215B --returned it to the store first and then for repairs to Asus. Each of the three have had defective touchpads, which, according to various websites, is common with this model. Do not buy this machine.
Summary: Similar to earlier comments, my touch pad does not work and the space bar requires a very hard press. Called ASUS and twice they had me reinstall the drivers. This is clearly not the problem. I asked if this was a known problem and was told "no" both times that I called.
Summary: This is a top shelf netbook....it's not a laptop but is very comparable to one. It has great graphics, pretty fast processor, lightweight and easy to use/setup. I use it for college and it's great because it connects to the wi fi easy and light.
