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.
Summary: I had trouble with this item, it sparked when i turned it on. This happened 4 times. I also had trouble conecting to the internet. When i was advised to return the netbook by Eclips, they refused to refund my money. This is not worth 1 star and the conpany are not trustworthy either. They have caused me a great deal of distress with their product and their attitude.
Summary: I have had one of these for a while now and the machine is probably fine, but with Linux, you get what you pay for, i.e. NOTHING. Absolutely nothing works on it. I am lucky if it even boots up one time in ten and none of the applications on it actually work without falling over in a heap every second time of trying them.
Summary: So it looks good and the build quality is good. It works really well until you try and connect to a wireless net work that requires a pass word ie a WEP key. At first I thought it was just me but no. Go to the Eee PC forums and nobody can get the thing to work. It does work fine on an unsecured network but is useless for anything else.
Summary: Have tried using two of these Asus 701 machines. Both seem to have the same problems. Firstly they do not seem to be able to print from OpenOffice to either a Epson Stylus color400 or a HP 5500. This is despite installing the printer drivers and adjusting every thing to A4 size paper - They do however print a perfect Test page. Neither of the Asus 701,s will detect a Three-mobile USB modem - they either hang-up and wait and wait OR say no modem is detected.
Excerpt: Neuf il devait peut-être être intéressant de l'utiliser. Je ne sais pas si c'est la marque ou si la précédente utilisatrice l'a malmené, mais je mettais, disons environ 15 minutes pour - éventuellement - accéder à la page Google ou à un site. Inutilisable, bref j'ai perdu de l'argent sur ce coup là...
