Pros: Battery life is fantastic in Windows 8 and debian based Linux distros.
Cons: Everything else. This is the poorest excuse for a netbook I've ever seen. Even web browsing is an agonizing experience with the default hardware. The Linux experience is hindered by a lack of video drivers, as the integrated gpu is made by an outside company (not intel). Upgrading hardware is a nail-biting adventure of popping plastic. The hard disk can be swapped out as well as the RAM, but even with the upgrades performance is still pitiful.
I bought this as a more portable note taking machine for class, but it even stutters and slows down loading Office (MS and Libre).
Words cannot fully express my buyer's remorse, so I'll just stop here with a reader's digest version: worst. purchase. ever.
Other Thoughts: This netbook is good at one thing and one thing only: being portable
Thank you for the positive review. I' sorry that you were dissatisfied with the netbook. The unit comes with WINDOWS 7 Starter Edition and not Linux. The netbook was designed for users on the go that requires light computing. It can do the following, surfing the internet, checking email and running basic Office applications, without slowing down system performance. If you need further assistance, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and write down service# 3124014 on the subject line.

Pros: This is a great machine. Long battery life and wonderful for working on the internet or papers. The battery life originally lasted 9 hours. 5 years later and it's time for a change out because I am only getting a few hours out of it within the last year. I highly recommend this computer if you are not looking to perform high powered processes.
Cons: There are very few issuesI can point out and usually I am a problem seeker when it comes to these things. It is terrible for gaming which can be a drawback for many people.
Other Thoughts: Since this is only a 32 bit processing system, it has limitations in how fast it is able to run. I highly recommend updating the 1 GB of ram up to 2 GB's

Pros: • Large Hard Drive (250 MB) • Battery Life • Keyboard • Built-in WebCam & Microphone • Plenty of USB Ports • Display • Windows 7 Starter
Cons: • Asus (mis-)advertises "750GB Storage: 250GB Hard Drive + 500GB Internet Storage", however after 1 year, Asus cancelled the "500GB Internet Storage" & said I had to pay for it if I wished to continue using it! • Within the first year, I am pretty sure it was a fan making a loud noise, so I sent it to Asus to be repaired under warranty: – I had to pay to ship it, even though it was under warranty – The problem still existed/exists after getting it back!! – They formatted my hard drive for no apparent reason!!
Other Thoughts: Especially at the time I purchased this, the 250GB Hard Drive is one of the largest I have seen in a Netbook. The full-sized keyboard keys are nice, along with all the Function keys. There is only one RAM slot, but I found a 2GB SODIMM for around $25, which has helped with performance. I also installed Jolicloud (Joli OS), a neat & extremely easy to use version of Linux, as a 2nd operating system. So, each time I boot up I can choose to load either Windows 7 Starter or Jolicloud.

Cons: This computer is so slow that I don't ever want to use it. I bought to watch movies, do internet browsing, and do occasional light work on Microsoft office. It is so frustratingly slow on starting up, updating, opening web browsers, internet searching etc that I do not have the patience or time to use it.
Other Thoughts: discontinued a little too late. Wish I hadn't bought it. Put your money towards something better.
