Excerpt: The compact size inevitably means that the keyboard gets a little cramp, but you will get used to it. You may also find that browsing at certain sites may not give you the full screen luxury, as in some parts look as though it has been “cut off”, and you need to scroll over. This is really due to the small screen. However, smaller screen also means it works better with trackpad mousing. Overall, it is still a neat piece of portable machine at a remarkable price.
Excerpt: And if you are bored, it has games in it–sudoku, pinguin and many others. When I tried it, I really enjoy playing with the games, specially the pinguin skateboarding. When I handed it to my little sister, she was somehow confused of what it was because it was really small. I explained to her on how to use it. She really loved it and really find it useful. Honestly, I am thinking of buying another one for myself.
Excerpt: There were a few things that I wasn’t very happy about - for instance, the unit tended to get hot very quickly, so it’s really good to use the unit on a table rather than having it on your lap. And the keyboard is kind of cramped, and it takes a few days to get used to it, but it’s definitely better than using your thumbs to type, like using a SideKick or another Smartphone. For the most part, this is a great unit for a great price. I suggest getting one today!!
Excerpt: I like its being light weight and small because I can carry it anywhere I go. Even the guards at the airport can’t believe that I am carrying a notebook with me because I just put it in my mini backpack. Its their first time to see such small notebook at that time. I really love this notebook and even if my mom told me to sell it and buy a new one or a bigger one, I can’t afford to do it because it is something that I want to treasure with the memories that I had with...
Excerpt: Also the Linux operating system designed by Asus for the laptop, although stable and user-friendly doesn’t have the variety of applications that Microsoft Windows offers. To sum up the Asus Eee Pc 701 4G is a great laptop for traveling and web browsing while you are sitting at the cafe, But the small hard drive renders it a little bit ineffective for other activities.
Excerpt: It connects to the internet quickly, too - just wait a bit after you turn it on and after a few seconds you’re connected. All in all, I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for an easy and cheap netbook for word processing and internet. This is great because if you don’t need something advanced you don’t have t pay the extra money for features or storage space you won’t use. Perfect for every age, especially for a middle school or high school student.
Summary: I got this to carry in my briefcase rather than hauling around a full size laptop. I wanted something to get email, occasionally SKYPE, check the net, look at photos and be able to read documents and make simple edits. Its met every expectation. The battery life is fine for that type of use, though, when its plugged into house current and running the more power demanding applications, the power supply gets very hot as does the unit itself.
Summary: I wanted a 7" netbook for taking away with me so I have access to emails, etc. I did not need all the features of an ipad and wanted something smaller. Although the screen is 7", the overall width is nearly 9", it is very heavy and very thick. I loaded some anti virus software onto it and it ground to a halt with not enough virtual memory. I have now bought some more RAM and it is a bit better.
