Summary: With limited use I have manage to keep this junk going up to now. Not wanting to throw it away, I put up with this slow and infuriating machine. Even the hinge broke down. I can see why it is no longer available. Asus has too much competition for me to ever purchase another of their products.
Summary: Nice, light and power ready and power stored, convenient for moving around especially during a Google or skype chat from one part of an office or room to another quieter location. The inbuilt mouse or synaptics pointing device is horribly sensitive and really a pain in spite of adjusting to the most sensitive to finger touch, heavy or light!
Summary: Do not waste your money. The latch the holds the display screen to the keyboard broke after 11 weeks of use and ASUS will not cover it under warranty because they don't warranty the cheap plastic pieces that they use to build their products.
Summary: i dont do a lot of heavy computing. I download music, youtube, and facebook. i watch movies too. it just seems really slow after having it for a year. this could be my problem, but ive never had a computer that was so laggy after only having it a year. Ill keep it for another year before i get a new computer.
Summary: So far, I like this netbook. The one downside to this is that the spacebar is either very sticky or the spring/mechanism underneath is very tight. Many times I have to pound on it to get a space in whatever I'm typing which is very frustrating. Overall, it fits my needs. Hoping the spacebar issue is just getting the key to loosen up.
Summary: I’m an international buyer , I live in Turkey and I have a ASUS laptop. My ASUS laptop which I bought on 16.October.2012 by amazon.com showed several the failures. First, display hinge is broken and the screen to swing. Then, SD card slot started not to read media gadgets. After a while, VGA port, began not to transfer images to projection devices. Finally, the on-off switch stopped working properly. I left my laptop ASUS Turkey central service center 1 month ago.
Summary: I wasn't sure what to expect because there weren't a lot of reviews. I bought the returned/refurbished one for much less. This is better than new. Everything started right up; no problems and I love the keyboard and size. Very nice laptop. It was nice to find an Asus with Windows 7.
Summary: I bought this computer in november and in the first two weeks I used it I was very happy with it. The finish seems high quality and the body felt solid and well made. The monitor has really impressive resolution. For the price and size it is a powerful and highly mobile computer. After two weeks of use I put the computer back in the packaging and stored it securely for several months while I was traveling abroad. I did not take the computer with me.
Summary: I can count on one hand the number of reviews I've done for products purchased off Amazon. But after reading some of the negative reviews about this product, I felt I needed to contribute. First off, its small. Having gone from a 15.6 ASUS with which I was extremely pleased (moved it to work for a new assistant) this thing is tiny. But not in a bad way.
