So this thing might not be perfect for if you like to play a lot of ...

Emma Constance, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: So this thing might not be perfect for if you like to play a lot of video games, but for me, who just does a lot of writing and reading, it is perfect. I got it with Linux so obviously it runs without a hitch 24/7 and, being a broke writer, $324 was precisely what I could spare when my old laptop kicked it. It doesn't have a DVD drive, but, again, that's not something I really need on my laptop. Streaming all the way. Definitely love, definitely recommend.

Great little Netbook

Timothy, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: I started shopping for a laptop, mostly for use as a college student for notes, looking stuff up, etc. I was looking for something cheap, small and lightweight, with hardware that would run Linux. This little unit fit the bill perfectly. This particular model includes Ubuntu out of the box, but I am not really into the pure Ubuntu experience.

Just what I wanted

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 is great. There's a learning curve but nothing too extensive. There are tons of info including videos on how to use the Linux software on the net. I had a problem with my wifi dropping so upgraded to 12.10, and that seems to be working better. If it doesn't I'll upgrade to 13.04. I like ASUS products and wanted to use a non-Windows-Apple-Android OS. I use and have used open source programs so that wasn't a big switch for me either.

Cheap and good

Leon, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: I love this PC. The spec's aren't good, but after installing Windows 8 on it, I got what I wanted, a quick, cheap, lightweight and super portable PC to get me out of any hurry. Of course it won't run a lot of really demanding software, but it get's the job done. For the next buyer, consider buying the one with the touchscreen. If the touchscreen it's not for you, then this is the one.

Perfect computer for a frequent traveler

J. Lawson, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: I had heard that changing from a windows xp os to a windows 8 would be very difficult but I have found that it was quite easy. I needed to replace my ASUS net book that I had used for 4 years as my traveling computer. I chose the ASUS X201E because I had been happy with the ASUS that I had been using. The X201E is an 11.6 inch model which means that I have a bigger screen and a bigger keyboard which is a definite plus, and the larger size has not meant a heavier weight.

Fabulous Little Laptop

sneilk "sneilk", Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: Fabulous machine. I bought it for my niece to start college. She needed something light and trustworthy. We looked at many and compared reviews and prices. We decided on the ASUS. We bought it in the US but she studies in Europe and it works perfectly in either country. Amazon did a great job with the delivery. It came early and exactly as described..

ASUS X201E-DH01 11.6 Inch Laptop (Black)

Peter J Sinclair, Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: I am very pleased with the purchase. It has performed exactly as advertised. I bought it primarily to write e-mails "on the go" and it does that very well with the 11 inch screen - being much larger than a smart phone. But It's also a lot easier to carry around than a full sized laptop. And because its running Linux (Ubuntu), it's fast, without needing a really heavy duty processor.

  • Summary: Needs adapter for broadband. I'm using a T-Mobile 3G Jetstick and there are no drivers for it. WiFi good and boots up from sleep in 10 seconds. Cold boot 1 minute. Lets see Windows do that !

Well-made and Ubuntu works fine

Tom, Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: The computer works just fine. It's solid, fast, good battery, attractive and light. I didn't know if I would like Ubuntu but wanted a simpler, faster OS. When I first loaded the OS and began to use it, it seemed slow. Then I let the system update itself online. This turns out to be absolutely essential and should not be postponed. Once all the (200 and something) updates were complete and I rebooted, everything worked as it should.
