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: A general all round great machine! Good name ... good components... good quality. Systems installed easy and software set-up not any issues. Excellent network connectivity. Plenty of options with all the ports available.
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 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.
Summary: I was looking for a more powerful netbook, but not quite a notebook. ASUS lists this as a netbook, even though Amazon shows it as a laptop. I was able to play Wizard101 with high resolution and little, if any, impact on game performance. If you're looking for something to do more than the basics but don't want to tote a full laptop, this should work.
Summary: Only had the ASUS 1225B-SU17-BK 11.6-Inch Laptop (Black) for a little over a week, but so far everything is working perfectly (knock on wood). I'm not a gamer, merely a writer, so this sexy little machine is everything I want in a small travelling-companion computer. My favorite feature is the battery life.
Love this little sturdy machine that does it all for travel - work and pleasure -

Summary: I bought this so I could work while traveling for 2 months under somewhat difficult conditions in Asia - very cheap hotels, transportation, backpacks, unreliable electricity, internet. I needed a machine that was small, light and allow me to run my most basic applications. I hadn't expected much at all, reading those gloomy forecasts of the 'end of the netbook', and thinking that it was mostly good for surfing the web, as netbooks were meant for, and that I'd be lucky if...
Summary: I have had this computer for 3 weeks. It seems to be running great. I took off all the bloadware and it boots and runs much faster. I purchased a SSD but have not put in in yet. For my money this is a great computer. My only complaint is the "onboard" memory that is soldered in and not upgradable.
Summary: I bought this netbook for 2 reasons: Portability and Power. The price point is ok being under five hundred bucks. I think it could be offered lower if supply could reach demand. Overall I am happy with this purchase and use this netbook daily.
Pros: Light wieght, semi-powerful, matte finish exterior, full 1080p movie playback, HDMI port, dual core, 4g memory and decent graphics.
Cons: Price this netbook is more expensive than the Asus equivalent 15.6" laptop, Battery life, but with higher performance you eat up battery power. High gloss screen and glare, but with a matte screen you wouldn't be able to enjoy HD playback as much. Touch pad has some glitches when trying to highlight something to cut and paste. The touch pad works though. Still can get bogged down when trying to play music and work on documents at the same time. It comes with bloatware...
