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.
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 But electronic product always out of date no matter how excellent it used to be.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: Not very fast, not a high resolution screen; not designed to be either of those. Well worth the price. Linux distribution that comes with it breaks on attempts to update; replace with Ubuntu Netbook or other OS.
Summary: I have had my netbook for around a year, running often at over 100 hours at a time. In all of this time with constant use, I have come across very minor problems. Around four months in, the A/C adapter that came with it had burned out, but I replaced it for relatively cheap with an off-brand adapter. Aside from that, my netbook has occasionally stopped responding to its volume commands, but I found that restarting fixes it.
Summary: This netbook is my new travel machine, as I bought it to take the extra weight and bulk of my Macbook out of my carry on. As a Mac user, I opted for a netbook that doesn't have a hard drive in it because I do not need to be saving documents, etc. on multiple machines and I can easily plug in my external to one of the three USB ports.
Summary: I bought it for my father who is a businessman and I took it with me when I travel to Japan and China. It is light. I brought it everywhere and I took it out of my packbag frequently to look for wireless internet. The battery can work for 3 or 4 hours. If you just close the lid, it can stay for longer than a whole day. The keyboard is small but you may adjust to it after hours use. It is enough as a netbook.
