Summary: I bought it to see if I could upgrade to Windows 7, but it's too small for the Windows XP and upgrading online. Looks like I'll need to erase the HD and try to fit a Windows 7 or 8 onto it, but I'm not even sure this is possible.... That's the fun of experimenting, though.
Summary: I cannot review this item because it has not arrived yet. It is a used item and uses an older Windows XP operating system. Also, it would also be unfair to judge such a unit without an extended history of use. For these reasons, I cannot recommend.
Good build Quality Small Keyboard, Small Screen, Good for some not for all.
12 September 2013
Summary: Pros : Low purchase price, low power consumption, light weight, small size, inexpensive replacement parts. Cons : Slow Processer, Small Screen, Normal Sized hands don't fit on the keyboard, Linux doesn't have as many options as other Systems. Overall I got this for my niece in the Philippines for her Collage and I didn't have much money to spend. It will use low power and her hands are small so the keyboard will not be a problem.
Summary: This is without a doubt my favorite of the ultra-portables. It's robust in construction, the Atom CPU has good horsepower and speed, it uses off-the-shelf 2.5" SATA hard drive and DDR2 RAM, both of which are trapdoor-access upgradable and standard SD-RAM cards for data exchange. The battery (mine is presently 4 years old) still lasts for several hours of enthusiastic use, and the charger is smart enough to power down when the battery is done charging. Flaws? Just one.
Summary: Great little machine. Has a large enough SSD to run windows on. Storage can be used in the internal SD card reader/writer and still has 3 usb ports for other items. Small enough to carry around and has a durable Solid State Drive for fast access.
Excerpt: Well, I bought this book because my old one can not work normally. My old notebook is also a ASUS one which i bought 4 years ago. It is a good one. I used it a lot in my work and studying. Aslo I played a lot of game on it. But electronic product always out of date no matter how excellent it used to be. But it makes me to trust the ASUS band. So i bought the new ASUS band.
Excerpt: This netbook is great for the money. It is small and very portable. The battery life is pretty good, you can get a good 3 hours. Only problem is the keyboard and screen are pretty small so if you have big fingers or bad eyesight this may not be for you. It comes installed with windows xp home edition, but you can install other operating systems such as linux. The picture quality on the screen is very good.
