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: 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...
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: 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. It also means it can be stored easily taking up virtually no space. When starting up it takes a matter of seconds.
Pros: quick, easy to navigate, simple instructions and help given is easy to understand, battery life
Asus Eee PC 4G: Great value, functional little machine
28 September 2009
Summary: 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. Whilst the screen is smaller than it is on many netbooks these days, I do not see this as a problem as it keeps the size of the unit small.
Pros: Boots up quickly, comes with everything you need, easy to operate
Summary: 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. The linux software on it is fast, simple and more than you need for a notebook and the size is great to slip into a handbag.
Pros: Small practical, fast, simple to use
Cons: Feels a bit cheap, doesn't have all software.
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
Summary: I own and regularly use the Eee PC 4G netbook. I think this netbook is brilliant to use when commuting and for light tasks. It is light enough to carry regularly to and from work. I like to use it to watch tv programmes and films from the memory card. I've got it running on an 8GB HDSD card. Although it comes installed with a word processing package, it is not great for word processing for long periods of time because both the keys and the screen are so small.
Excerpt: "This review looks at one of many netbooks to be released in the UK over the past few months, ASUS's EEE PC 701 SD. The model I have is fitted with Windows XP and has an 8Gb hard drive. I bought it on special offer for £155. Appearance The 701SD is absolutely tiny. It weighs around a kilogram and is roughly the same size as a hardback reading book when in the closed position. It comes in a neat box along with instructions,a mains charger, a protective ...
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.
