  • Summary: Apart from not being able to install programs easily if at all, this little machine has it all. And the pricetag is unbelievably small for such a giant worker. Internet access, Skype, no problem installing printer drivers. Everything was so easy to do and all programs one normally uses are on it. It will not replace your desktop but for travel it is marvelous. Best money I have spent in a long time!!!!.
  • Pros: Weight, portability, ease of use
  • Cons: Installing other programs not easy if at all possible

Not bad, and made it a lot better

  • Summary: Great little device, perfect for travel. Shame about the as-delivered OS. Luckily, dead easy to replace, I shoved Eeebuntu on it (never done it before, took about 30 mins), lovely. Upped the RAM to 2Gb and shoved an 8Gb SD card in it, too. Main reason for changing OS: as-delivered OS (Xandros) was not connecting to my BT HomeHub using WPA. Eeebuntu dead easy (all instructions off www) job done.

  • Summary: I purchased one of these super little machines and i have to say i instantly loved it. Great for internet browsing and pc portabilty on the move. Surf the net on a train, plane or automobile, at a railway station, in a supermarket or simply just for the kids bedroom. These are great little pcs and they boot up and shut down very quickly. The keyboard is small but functional and the 7" screen is bright, clean and efficient.

Excellent for what it does

  • Summary: I agree with the consensus of favourable reviews; it is incredibly light, fast and small. But I would note that the mouse is fiddly, the screen can be a bit shallow for complex web viewing; and the screen can break very easily indeed if you press it accidentally.

  • Summary: In this Price, the Asus Eee PC 4G offers an impressive package for portable Web surfing and basic productivity, as long as you keep expectations tempered. The incredibly approachable price outweighs any shortcomings; it's a near perfect choice for a highly portable second or backup laptop.

  • Summary: I bought an eee pc 2GB white one back in February this year, and have loved playing with it some much that i've needed to format the drive at least 3 times. I love that i can use it as a portable media player with a decent sized screen, i know all you other nerds will disagree because of the 7" screen, but find me a DVD or MP4 Player that is wireless, and lightweight for £200..... I thank you...
  • Pros: How light weight it is.
  • Cons: Lack of Bags for it...

  • Summary: This is the best piece of computer technology since the BBC micro in the early 80s. Everything just works, email, web, office, internet radio. It has some really fun games, but thankfully no MS Windows (with associated spyware, viruses etc), and it just looks damn sexy. All for around £200!
  • Pros: Great feel & design
  • Cons: Battery life 2-3 hours
