5 out of 5 eggsGreat, cheap netbook case

Pros: Holds my 10.1 Asus 1015E-Ds01 perfectly. Also fits the power cord, external h.d. and numerous flash drives in the 2 zippered pockets. All this for under $12.00. Not bad at all.

Cons: None what so ever. It does what it's supposed to do.

Other Thoughts: 1st reviewer is a complete idiot. If you try to put something that's too big in anything that isn't made to hold it, it's going to break. Does he/she try to put a gallon of water/liguid in a pint container, too ? Probably does. This case is sold as a 10.1" netbook case, not a 11.*" case.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied so far.

Pros: Definitely worth the price. Everything on work's well. I immediately upgrade mine to Windows 8.1, as soon as I got it. Thoroughly impressed with Newegg. I ordered it last Wednesday and received it Friday.Not a Atom cpu, fast for the money spent. Definitely worth the price.

Cons: Wish the ram was upgradable.

Other Thoughts: It's made by ASUS home of the ROG and definitely worth the price.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus 10-Inch Collector

Pros: - Lightweight
- Simple & Effective
- Windows 8 Lightweight OS
- 2GB's is plenty
- Great battery life (I typically get something around 6-8 hours if on power saver mode)
- I do full work projects on this little guy with Microsoft Office programs and it seems to handle it decently, as long as you aren't doing too much at one time
- Asus Customer Service (I don't care what you say I've always had great interactions)

Cons: - Heavy keys: I often find myself sometimes having to hit the keys a little bit harder than I do on the rest of my laptops/computers.
- Lightweight Processor: Come on you are buying a netbook not a power-horse (I wouldn't consider this a negative)
- Bloatware: Not too much but it does come with a lot of Asus software (like virtual webcam experiences) that are a little childish.

Other Thoughts: - I've owned Asus's netbooks since they came out with the first eee-family laptop. I've loved these things and they have always served a great purpose.

- Netbook vs Chromebook: So you may ask yourself what is the primary difference or benefit of one over the other? A Chromebook only has an SSD large enough for it's operating system and a few applications, most of the items are saved via cloud (online storage). Netbooks don't operate as fast because they utilize less expensive/slower HDD's with a larger amount of space.

- This thing is great for any light work you may need. I'm not going to lug my 17 laptop for a 3 day business trip or to utilize for an afternoon at a conference of some sort. I'm not much of a fan of the work tablets so these type of laptops are great for those who want the legitimate feel of a PC with all the Mobile benefits.

- Replacement parts: this is the downfall to 90% of all laptops. For these netbooks, the only issue I've ever ran into was the side fan burning out. I do have to admit that I often leave my netbook on for 12+ hours when I am on business for skype and what not. Asus sent me a new fan to replace the original burnt one but it was a completely different fan setting, after a few weeks they got the right one sent. It just sucked being in the middle of no where without a working computer.

- Webcam: the webcam isn't the greatest thing alive, but skype/ghangouts work just fine

I think it's important to tell you that I've dropped this thing countless times on concrete and hard tile and the poor thing still doesn't show a single scratch. My original mini had a quart of beer poured into it and after letting it dry it worked for 2 years after that before I upgraded.


Overall a great little machine that I would recommend to anyone looking for a lightweight device.

2 out of 5 eggsnot linux friendly

Pros: It has a nice-looking screen compared to my old Atom netbook from 2010. It works.

Cons: It is not linux friendly. My plan was to install lubuntu, but this turned out to be impossible since lubuntu does not support the new UEFI alternative to BIOS. So instead I am forced to install some other distro. I chose xubuntu 64.

Or at least I TRIED to choose it. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the darned wifi drivers don't work correctly with the latest (13.04) version! Fortunately when I downgraded to 12.04.2 LTS the driver problem was resolved. (Note: do NOT attempt to use the proprietary/restricted drivers!) So to the above person, if you don't mind downgrading to xubuntu 12.04.2 LTS 64, that will solve your problem.

I don't like the touchpad either, as it is awkward to use and interferes with my typing.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very disappointed. I wanted to go with an Atom netbook which would have MUCH better performance-per-watt, but I couldn't find anything with an Atom that looked good, so I chose this. I guess I should have looked harder, because from what I hear online, the Atom architecture is likely to be much more linux friendly.

Strictly speaking there is nothing "wrong" with the netbook. If you plan to just use Windows 8 (good luck with that by the way) then I'm sure it would be fine. But if you're like me and you need linux, then please be aware that this netbook comes bundled with a free subscription to headaches and hair pulling.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that you had issues installing Linux on your netbook. It seems like you had to go through quite a bit of hassle to get everything working the way you wanted. Of course, as you know, the netbook wasn't designed to run any other operating system other than Windows. With that said, it is good to know that everything is working for you now.

If you have any questions about your ASUS netbook or if you have any questions about ASUS products in general, please let me know. My email is Have a nice day!

3 out of 5 eggsIt's okay.

Pros: This laptop has good battery life, is very light and cheap. Unlike some other smaller laptops, the keyboard is fullsize, or close enough for me to not notice. I should also say that the hardware does not feel cheap.

It's not going to play modern games, but although I haven't tried, you could probably get away with games from 3-5 years ago. If you have a decent desktop machine and would just like to supplement with something to use for web browsing/messaging on the couch or while traveling, this is a good choice. If you're realistic about how a laptop this cheap should perform, you probably aren't going to be disappointed.

Cons: I want to install Linux on it, but the hardware is not very Linux friendly. You will have to mess around in the BIOS to disable secureboot. The WIFI chip is broadcom and the proprietary driver seems a bit flaky. It will only connect after suspend/resume. Even then it will not work sometimes and must be rebooted. The ethernet chip prevents the laptop from suspending unless the kernel module is unloaded and reloaded when resuming. I assumed, since this laptop is sold in Windows and Ubuntu varieties, that the hardware would be Ubuntu friendly. Not so. The Ubuntu version of this product must have different components. So if this is what you plan to do, this is just not the laptop for you.

It's kind of a shame, because in typical ASUS fashion, they included a bunch of weird software hacks in the Windows 8 installation that make it kind of buggy and annoying to use. I wish ASUS would just admit to themselves that they make good hardware that ends up sucking because they don't know how to do the software.
