Summary: I am a 1st year medical student and needed an inexpensive laptop, with good battery life that I could use to take notes. I researched netbooks and small laptops for over 3 months and after reading probably one hundred reviews decided on this one.
I coulda been somebody, I coulda been a contender!

Summary: Yup. This is a great little laptop, but minor niggles and annoying design choices keep it from being the perfect notebook/thin-and-light computer. The pros, as so many others have written it down before me: light-weight, powerful-enough for most purposes (I haven't tried running my Igor Pro codes on...
Summary: I have been using laptops for close to 20 years. This is actually the most powerful and the least expensive laptop I have owned. The interesting thing that this machine has is the "express gate" boot up. If you don't read the intro instructions you might miss that it has 2 "on" buttons.
Ideal laptop for its intended purpose at very resonable pricing

Summary: Having owned this laptop for about 3 months now. It is a nice laptop that fits well within your laps and its light for everyday portability. Its well suited for someone like myself who needs a light notebook to work on and do daily simple task: email, documentations, spreadsheets, surfing the wed,...
Summary: I was afraid I would be compromising performance coming from a fully loaded Dell XPS M1330. My Dell system was lightning fast but was not dependable. Within one year I had to have it serviced over 12 times and finally had the whole system replaced under Dell's warranty.
Summary: ok I've had this laptop for about... 3-4 months now and I have my personal thoughts about it (I'll make it as short and to the point as possible). Pros: -biggest wow is the battery life, I'm on campus ALL day without a recharge.
Summary: So after reading through all the other reviews I have a few minor things to add or suggest. First, the touchpad is not that bad. I have had the laptop for 2 weeks and after a few minor tweeks to the touchpad settings, it works like a thing of beauty. multitouch is excellent.
Summary: If you're like me, you research hours and hours before deciding what kind of laptop you want to get. It's a big purchase no doubt, and you want to make sure that you're getting a great laptop for your money, which is why you've taken the time to scroll all the way down the Amazon page to the...
Summary: After 1 month of ownership (as of tomorrow), I'm extremely impressed. However, I'm giving it four stars simply due to a few things that ASUS could easily change to make it even better. First, before you consider buying one of these, you should realize what it's designed for.
