Summary: Very good laptop for the price but sometimes Ubuntu feels slow and heavy, more light-weight Linux distros may perform better. I think I'd rather install something like ChromeOS and side load Ubuntu for some tasks or go with Chrunchbang and such ..
I wished I had purchased my Laptop somewhere else.

Summary: Laptop returns are like pulling teeth from PC Parts Depot. Regardless of whether the box was opened or not PC Parts Depot charges a 20% restocking fee. Maybe the 20% restocking fee is an industry standard that is fair to the seller to cover for any losses resulting from opened items.
Summary: I had the original eeePC made by Asus and it was great. This model is a huge upgrade, super affordable, and linux is definitely the way to go. BUT I have now purchased two devices (same model) and both are defective. The first one had a hard drive failure. I'm a computer person so this can happen.
Excerpt: Изначально не планировала его покупать,но так как желаемой модели не было в наличии посоветовали этот.Очень огорчило время работы.В необходимом режиме для меня(интернет серфинг,скайп,плюс спец.программа) работает часа 3 максимум.
