Summary: I bought this unit to use as a datebook. There wasn't any software on it fir this purpose and the unit wouldn't let me add software that would do what I wanted. I played with it for a couple of weeks then gave up and sold it.

Summary: I purchased this item from you and I still havent gotten the power cord. Can you please provide me with such. I obviously would not be able to use the computer without the power cord. I also sent a message relative to such anomaly, and I have not even gotten a reply. Today is September 27th some two months later. I went and bought a power cord for the item, and to my surprise the item doesnt even work. Amazon, look what dishonesty you've orchestrated against me!
Summary: I have the ASUS Eee PC 2G Surf. While my husband chides me because I could have bought a larger notebook for just a little more, that wasn't why I bought my eeepc. I wanted little, I wanted portable, I wanted durable, I wanted to surf the internet. And all those features are realized in this tiny little computer. SIZE That is one comment I get from everyone, "That's the smallest notebook I've ever seen!" It really is small, under 9" x 6 ¼ x 1 ½".
easy to use and light to carry when your on the road or travelling. Also sturdy and perfect as a first laptop.

Summary: Bought for my sister for xmas, excellent laptop for her since it is so small and easy to just throw into your bag. She uses it for the internet and to play her iPod music. It is so easy and very durable when using. I would definitely tell anyway who needs a small laptop or an additional one for on the road to get the Asus eee PC.
Summary: I have looked for years for a laptop that was compact, no fuss and would do what I need (Word processing, and e-mail). This is it! Right from the box it was ready to roll. The WI-FI works great, networking in motels with RJ cord works great. The word processor melds seamlessly with MS WORD. Even the photo program is handy. Small (size of a trade paperback book), light (two pounds), it is perfect for my needs. Fits in a day pack without a problem.
Summary: I love my little asus. While it will probably never manage to be a workhorse, that's not why I bought it. It's fabulous for general net surfing and basic office doc uses, works great out of the box and is incredibly portable. The speakers sound good. I do wish that getting rid of unwanted/unecessary programs was easier, but they aren't really in the way, especially since adding external memory is so easy and doesn't really cause much slow down. It's also so *cute*.
Summary: I was pleased with the performance of this little wonder. First thing I did was increase the RAM to 2 GB and have never looked back. As the owner of several group homes, I keep the medical records of each resident on this machine (password protected) which beats the alternative of carrying their medical folders with me for doctors visits.
Summary: Although it's just a little slow compared to our main pc and laptop, it's convenience outweighs this factor. It's great for the kids to surf the web, pick up emails, do research for school, and even write their reports. It's compact size makes it nice to have out on the counter in the kitchen, relax in the family room with, or throw in a bag for traveling.
