Summary: I bought this PC a while ago, and have slowly grown a cultivated hatred for it. It is portable and cute and lightweight and pretty sturdy, but do NOT buy a linux-filled version, even though it is cheaper than a Windows option. I am not a computer programmer, but I really know how to troubleshoot on both PC's and Mac's, problems that stop other people and make them give it to their techy geek friend usually just take a few minutes for me to figure out.
Summary: We live in a rural ranch community in the mountains of Colorado. The mini laptop would not work up here even though we have satellite internet connection.?? I ordered and returned 2 and then the 3rd one worked downtown only also, but since it was for my son-in-law is temp down there for work, it works for him...he loves it!
Summary: I purchased the Linux version of the 701sd as a compact writing machine and traveling emailer. I expected to have some configuration issues with the hardware, but everything worked right out of the box. I was connected with my network with in minutes. The stock interface seems childish, but then it is marketed to people who have never used anything but windoze, and it can be used right away by anyone.There are other Linux versions that can be placed on the 701, but I am...
Summary: Not much to say about this product except it is perfect for travel. Small, lightweight and connects very easy to the internet. If your need is to be able to get online for e-mail, etc. when on a trip then this can not be beat. No disk drives, not a lot of processing power but if you need that then lug the heavy bulky laptop around. This is a netbook and perfect for its intent. UPDATE: Simply Broke on my third trip to Europe.
Summary: When I bought this laptop I wasn't sure exactly what options it had because of the lack of a good summary but I went ahead and bought it anyway, at least I'd have something to take to class like all the other college students. It was great deal for me but I'll let you make your own decision.
Summary: I gave this computer as a Christmas present and didn't see my daughter for two days after she opened it. It is an excellent learning computer for kids. My only problem is the inability to provide a safer surfing experience. Overall, an good product.
Summary: If you think buying from Target through Amazon and getting Target service, think again. This Eee PC was purchased as a Christmas gift for me. The battery pack would not charge so I took it to my friendly local Target store for a replacement. I was told that even though someone had purchased it from Target they could not replace it for me because it was purchased through Amazon. It would have to be shipped back to Amazon for replacement. Well how about them apples?
Summary: Very desirable laptop in very small package. If you are looking for something to browse the web, get and send your email, and write letters, this will do it. The installed operating system is OK for people new to computers, but for more experienced users will want to install a better version of linux such as Ubuntu.
Summary: An interesting product at the low end of the "netbook" category. Very compact and lightweight. This computer would easily slip into any briefcase or a large purse. Comes with a neoprene sleeve. Charger is about the size of a cell phone, so much, much easier to transport the netbook and charger than a fully sized laptop. The keyboard is a bit challenging. Smaller than a full sized laptop, but much larger than an iPhone or Blackberry.
Summary: Read all the online reviews, this little PC does what it does very well. It is small so you cannot complain about the small screen and the cramped keyboard, both of which are perfectly serviceable, BTW. I had never used Linux before and I had this thing sorted out in less than 5 minutes. I have not found a wireless LAN that it will not connect to, but I am still looking. And it really cooks along when plugged into a 100 Mbps Ethernet.
