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: 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: This laptop is great.It replaced an older 10 inch Asus with poor graphics and CPU with Windows 7 Starter. The 1225B model has good graphics and reasonable CPU speed and with 4 Gb of ram and Win7 X64 which allows seamless upgrade shortly to Windows 8 Pro X64. It performs well and there are no criticisms of it. It is meant as a lightweight travel machine with a good storage space.
Summary: I love my new netbook and have been using it constantly. I put a Kingston SSD in it and it is really responsive and boots super fast. I would definitely purchase this again. It is a pretty powerful little machine and I am very pleased with the purchase.
