Summary: Right click desktop select properties settings tab advanced turn to dpi settings select custom settings; make it 150 % for better results : run the recovery disc once from a usb dvd and set the resolution to 1024x 768 instead of the 1200 x 800; This allows a 12 inch effect for the entire thing ; you can scroll the window up and down and it will seem as if you are seeing the active part of a greater screen most of the time. Quite ingenious!!
Summary: This is a great product, and in the first few weeks of use I have had little problems using it. I travel alot for work and purchased this for my work and I have not been disappointed. In fact, I am shocked at how convenient this laptop has been. It is small enough for me to carry around with me while I go from meeting to meeting, and lasts for a full day on one battery.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Compact, Fast, Good Battery Life
Summary: First, I'm definitely NOT a tech guy but I'm a big time gadget guy :-) This machine is perfect for what I want it for - PORTABILITY. It seems to be of decent quality and works right out of the box AS IT SHOULD - unlike the Aspire One I bought previously (which would not even boot up completely the first time I turned on the power switch). What I like least about the machine is that you have to keep moving the screen around with the mouse to view the screen.
Summary: AFTER A FRIEND GOT THE ACER NOTEBOOK I WANTED ONE SO AFTER A BIT OF RESERCH I THOUGHT THE Eee UNIT WITH THE BIGGER BATTERY WAS A BETTER DEAL FOR LESS MONEY...i.e. MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK... I HAVE NOT BEEN DISSAPOINTED AS I SIT HERE ON MY LANI IN FLORIDA ON SUNDAY NIGHT 2/15 TYPING THIS IN... THE KEYBOARD IS A BIT SMALL BUT I HAVE GOTTEN USED TO IT QUICKLY... I TAKE IT WITH ME ALMOST EVERYWHERE...
Summary: Read about all the available "netbooks" and haven't been disappointed yet with my purchase. The right shift key position was and issue but solved it by using someone's suggestion - a freeware product called SharpKeys - which allows you to remap your keys. Swapped the PgUp and Shift keys and am now much happier.
Summary: I just received my 904-HA yesterday, and so far I think it's the best purchase I've made in years. The only minor issue I've had is the power adapter stopped working for a bit, but it's working again now. I think the warranty on the adapter is shorter than the warranty on the unit itself, so I might contact Asus or B&H about this.As for the netbook itself, it gets 4 stars on both performance and portability.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Compact, Good Battery Life, Lightweight
Summary: I purchased this item to be more productive in my writing and it has truly paid off. I did more writing in my first three days of receiving this item than I did for the past three months on my desktop. This item is so convenient to carry around that as soon an idea comes up, you pop it open and you're doing work. The issues that I have is that my thumbs tap the touch pad as I am typing and wherever your cursor is located, that is where you are going to end up.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Compact, Fast, Good Battery Life, Lightweight, Many ports
Excerpt: You can get free access to the internet without needing a service provider to pay for. The ASUS Eee PC 904HA is in fact perfect for students and for ladies like me who constantly travel and value time. The ASUS Eee PC 904HA is also not hard to maintain. The quality is excellent. It’s fast and is cheap as compared to those laptops that range higher. I recommend the ASUS Eee PC 904HA to ladies like me who like to consider convenience when doing purchases.
Excerpt: The only real downside I’m experiencing is the lack of a CD drive (as is probably the same with most netbooks). I guess that is the sacrifice you pay for the compactness of a netbook . For the most part I can transfer files via USB. The problem arises when I want to install software that comes on CDs. Overall I’m happy with my Asus Eee PC 904HA Netbook. It’s convenient, compact and has given me no problems over the last 8 months or so.
