Summary: i just got it for few days, and i like it so far!! The small size is perfect to fit into my bag. I can carry it anywhere. The performance is good too!! The computer can be turned on and off in a very short time.
Pros: small size, light, performance, fantastic voice command
Excerpt: **Disclaimer - this is not intended to be a full technical run down, this is what I think and feel about this netbook with regards to how I use it - primarily for the internet!** I absolutely adore my Asus Eee PC.
Pros: Small, hardy, user friendly
Cons: Not much storage space, best used for surfing only
would you think a 7year old would be ok with this?

Excerpt: I have brought this my daughter for christmas, she is 7 years old but very advanced in technolgy and knows how to use computers i.e logging off ect. I havnt used it myself as dont want to open it as its a gift.
Summary: I bought the Asus Eee PC 701 for my daughter's 10th birthday. Being familiar with Linux based systems (I use Ubuntu on my PC), I thought this device would be just the thing for her. It wasn't until I started using it that I realised just how good it is.
Excerpt: To the best of my knowledge this great little netbook is now only available as a second hand purchase. So rather than repeat the already readily available info n specs etc in this review I'm looking at whether the asus EeePC 701 still makes a good buy.
overall a great product but could be improved, especially with the addition of microsoft

Excerpt: After receiving this tiny netbook for my Christmas last year it quickly became involved in my day to day routine being far quicker and handier than the house-hold computer. Its small stature allows you to multitask efficiently, carrying it around the house as you go.
A great little machine for basic tasks, just don't expect too much from it.

Excerpt: I bought my Asus EEE PC just over a year ago. At the time there were not as many netbooks on the market as there are today. Despite the lack of choice of other options, I have not been disappointed with this machine, even after seeing other people with their more modern netbooks.
Excerpt: I have had my eee for about 18 months now and its served me well. its is very simple to use and all software was on it so i didnt have to do anything to it apart from turn it on which was great.
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.
Pros: Weight, portability, ease of use
Cons: Installing other programs not easy if at all possible
Excerpt: You could not believe such small portible computer could be as good but it is. I have been looking for a laptop like this, checked alot of asus eee-like computers and couldn't find anything better.
