Summary: This is a great cheap super thin netbook. Having only 8GB of storage really limits you unless you are going to just use it for web tasks. I upgrade mine with an mSATA SSD to help with the storage issues. The build quality is good, however the keyboard has awkward key placements. The combination of the tiny backspace key and merger storage space make it hard to recommend.
Excerpt: I am impressed with this toy. Despite the RAM memory, i didn't notice a big difference in comparison to a same netbook with similar specs but with 2gb memory. i'm running windows 7 ultimate with no problems at all. Im also very impressed with instant on technology. It's really instant! and it...
Summary: This netbook has actually been pretty nice to use. There are two problems. One, setup is a little tricky because the organization of the operating system is a little different. Second, the Meego project is small and this netbook is not being keep up to date. It seems like ASUS has pretty much abandoned the whole idea... Which is to bad because in-spite of the learning curve I like this a lot better than Windows.
Summary: Great little netbook, thin and lightweight. I didn't like the operating system, so I put Windows 7 on it. This is not recommended for the average user though, because it required special configurations since the solid state drive is limited to 8 GB, but it works like a charm. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is slow with Internet Explorer. Chrome seemed to improve a little.
Summary: Taking online classes, I needed a netbook to easily do work while on the go. This netbook has worked out exceptionally well and is far cheaper and more efficient than a tablet or iPad. On a touch screen, you can't type many words-per-minute. It has more than served its purpose since I purchased it last October. Pros: -Word processor that can save in multiple formats -Excellent browser -Wide keyboard compared to previous netbooks.
Summary: For the price, you can't beat this netbook. Literally, in fact--I don't believe there is a cheaper one on the market. I've had the machine for 6 months and don't have any major complaints. It is sleek and incredibly light-weight. Meego is a little irritating, so I took another reviewer's suggestion and put Lubuntu on it instead. That made it run more efficiently, as well as extend the battery life a bit.
Summary: Just got this and liking it so far. Been poking at it and getting everything set up as I like it and wanted to share a few impressions: Meego is your standard Linux affair, more or less. For its purpose (lower-strength netbook), it's fine. Meego itself is a tad restrictive and I'm not 100% a fan of its default window manager, but, if you're not addicted to Windows, you'll get along just fine.
Summary: I liked the quality of the Asus product, but not so much the MeeGo OS. Best feature of this netbook is it's thinness. Really thin and light, pleasure to hold. All the other good things netbooks usually have are there too. Chromium browser on this netbook is pre-installed, which is nice. The rest of the OS is not that great in my opinion. It belongs on a smartphone, not netbook.
Summary: I picked up one of these at a brick and mortar store. I had ecently handled a friend's Macbook Air and was exceedingly jealous of its size and weight. So for 6 times less the cost of a Macbook Air I got exactly what I wanted: A thin netbook that is light as a feather. But to cost 6 times less, some compromises must be made. The disk size is 8 GB, which is big enough to hold your operating system and some documents.
