Summary: I know I get what I pay for, but I didn't expect this netbook to be basically disposable. I had problems with the touchpad and click keys not responding within the first couple months. I sent it in for repair and got it back without anything seemingly having been done to it. After a few more months, add to this that the computer would intermittently behave as though the shift key was stuck (I think you can't realize how many problems this creates unless you try it- very...
Excerpt: I cannot express just how badly I view this product. We purchased the Eec PC 900 for our son through his school last year as they were using them in class & we have had nothing but trouble with it. We are now on our third one!!! The first had a problem with the screen from day 1, the replacement was ok for a coupl of months until the space bar started to lift & then the touchpad click button fell off & we had to glue it back on!
Summary: Don't get why I should have to pay for something that requires so much work just to get it doing what it says on the box? It is a mini laptop, therefore I charge it up and get to work. But with this machine, after finding it ran out of space as soon as it came out the box, first I am supposed to download an autoc2d, which required a cd which I didn't have and the machine doesn't have a cd drive! Then something to do with 'BIOS'....
Pros: Light and small but usable size keypad
Cons: Hard drive too small to even get the machine started!
Summary: Just bought an EEE PC 900 nothing but garbage can surf the net almost OK but don't even bother to try to work with Windows... every second window I try to open takes forever or just freezes..... I've used 400mhz cpu computers with 512ram that work better over 5 years ago.... I am not happy with this laptop? Craptop!!!!!! My old HTC – Touch Phone can out perform this computer...
Pros: Screen color
Cons: slow slow slow slow oh did I say it was slow
Summary: This is a nice mchine but it is rendered useless by the prtition for the C Drive being too small to support XP. Min continuously run out of memory evn though the only extra programmes are Norton Basic AV and Money. Could be my fvourite machine ever if I could sort this out.
Pros: Screen and size
Cons: C Drive keep running out of memory making it useless
Summary: I got my asus eee from mobileIT on here in this page. Unfortunately the battery they supply you with is the 4400 as such I will need to spend more to upgrade and actually get a decent battery life out of this thing!!
Summary: I bought a Linux version for all the reasons the other comments gave. The central problem was that wireless didn't work, and ASUS were of no help in fixing this. In fact, the instructions they gave (to recover system) led to the whole system crashing. I was told that the solutions that didn't work for me, 'usually work'. I'm about to take it back. I'm by no means a computer expert, but I'm pretty literate.
Excerpt: mauvaise pioche. cet ordinateur est trop petit, touches impraticables, processeur nul et capacité de stockage nul également. meme les mises à jour de sécurité sont impossible vu la place qu'elles prennent.
