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: Bought this ?four-five? years ago so that my kids could use while on a trip to Hawaii during the school year. This would allow them to do their homework. Since then, the 2G has been only used minimally (probably less than 200 hours total). I was curious to see if they were still being sold...which they are and hence why I decided to write this. - Pros: Small/Light for travel. - Cons: Battery would never hold charge and would leak down.

Summary: ASUS Eee PC 2G Surf (7-Inch Display, Intel Mobile Processor, 512 MB RAM, 2 GB Hard Drive, Linux Preloaded) Galaxy Black The Firefox and Flash software are so out of date that they are useless in many instances. According to ASUS because this is an "old model" it cannot support most software updates so there is nothing you can do about 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.
