Summary: Works great with an external Apple keyboard and a mouse. The built-in touchpad is sensitive to proximity as well as touch, and it does not shut off during typing. As a result, the cursor is continually repositioned during typing.
Summary: This laptop is perfect for school related things. That is what i needed it for and along with my specific internet connection, the internet is quick and the laptop delivers. What i dont recommend it for is viewing youtube videos or downloading lots of things.
Summary: I love the laptop it preforms extremely well for what I paid. The brushed aluminum finish looks amazing and keeps clean very easily. My biggest complaint is that the mouse buttons are way to loud.
Summary: I bought this because of the pricepoint and the size. It replaced my wife's netbook. I wanted a macbook air but settled because I was low on $ at the time. PROS: -Decent size/weight, though definitely no macbook air -APU = good lightweight graphics -sleek brushed metal look -solid battery life...
Summary: ASUS customer support is horrendous, have a problem? "re install windows". Their drivers often check for operating system version and OEM status, quite a few would not install when I upgraded to Windows Ultimate. More importantly, I updated the BIOS and BROKE SUPPORT FOR SLEEP.
Summary: I needed a new laptop for a few basic things: internet browsing, email, video calls, and movie/live sports streaming. I was looking for something under $500, relatively light and small, decent battery life, and an hdmi out to use with a home cinema/projector.
Summary: We needed a basic laptop to replace our old Dell which continuously overheats and shuts down on its own but didn't want to break the bank. Found this deal and have heard about quality of Asus products. Basic needs were for surfing and word processing for my wife's work.
Summary: I've been waiting to replace my trusty eeepc 1005HA for a while now, and while looking for another ASUS netbook with a 12 inch screen, all of a sudden Amazon offers this a 13-inch model for very little more than I paid for the 10-inch netbook almost 4 years ago.
Summary: Serves its purpose of Surfing the web and handling email. Good bargain but with a great deal of ad-ware and malware to eliminated. needed to download Ccleaner to eliminate the unneeded programs. Fast enough for its limited functions at a very good price. Avoid using ASUS help.
