  • Summary: I've not had a Netbook before. I followed the advice of others and bought an SD card to boost performance. However, it is still petty slow on even the most basic tasks. Also, the search engines are in Polish!

Asus Eee PC X101CH 10.1-inch Netbook (Purple) - (Intel Atom N2600 1.6GHz

Mr. B. Wicks "Mac Man", Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: This was the chosen tool for being on the road, it needed to be small and light weight and this fits that criteria. I am not sure why manufacturers insist on installing loads of useless software on their products, it slows the whole thing down and bearing in mind this little Asus has only 1GB of ram that cannot be upgraded.

Handy netbook although it can be slow

Absinthe_..., Ciao
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I'd wanted a netbook for a while, to take out and about instead of my heavy laptop. I also wanted something to take home when I visit my parents: trying to carry a large laptop as well as other bits of luggage on a three-hour train journey isn't fun! I couldn't find much choice available, but I was attracted by this ASUS X101CH-PUR019S Netbook in purple, which I saw at numerous stores, including Argos.
  • Pros: Cute, compact, lovely colour, easy to use
  • Cons: Can be slow

Not great for typing

Saturno, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this netbook to replace my old Dell Inspiron. I wanted something very basic on which I could type - pure and simple. I'm writing a novel and don't need or want lots of fancy gizmos or distractions. This netbook is great on size and weight, truly portable, and the battery life is pretty good too. My only gripe is the keyboard. I find it very frustrating to use indeed. The keys just aren't responsive.

Tiny keyboard difficult to use

daphne von achten, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I only opened the box and tried the keyboard. Keyboard is probably fine for two finger typists but as a touch typist with around 40 years experience of many different machines I found it difficult to use. Therefore I returned it without setting up/connecting the machine so I cannot comment upon performance etc. Otherwise it was a good compact machine, lightweight and would be easy to carry about. Cover was attractive and didn't feel flimsy.

Not too bad.

Magdalena Kowalczyk, Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: Well, I read some other reviews and know that this is not the best netbook that someone would think of but it's not that bad too. My laptop broke down and needed something cheap and good quite quickly so decided to go for this one. I didn't want to buy the cheapest netbook because that would be pointless, besides I read a lot of reviews saying that the cheap one are rubbish.

User Review

8 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought one for £135 used and I am relatively happy with it after cleaning it up and turning everything off that I just do not need. I optimized it for performance, got rid of all auto updates, added four gig to Windows Ready Boost and removed any unnecessary software that I will not need. I got rid of AVG, instead I installed MBAB, hooked up a monitor to the vga, connected a screen via the hdmi.
  • Pros: slim and slick and lightweight
  • Cons: performance
