Personal computing has never been so portable, or so affordable. The new EeePC, a joint venture between Intel and Asus, is designed to be your constant companion and your elegant yet affordable introduction to computing. Weighing in at only 2 pounds, with a compact and highly-readable seven-inch display, the EeePC is perfect little assistant. Running on a customized Linux operating system, it responds far more speedily than its Windows counterparts, but it’ll run Windows XP quite happily, if you like.

The EeePC offers two types of intuitive interface, to let you choose how you want to use it. Using either the “Easy” or full desktop mode, you can use the built-in WLAN connectivity to communicate on the run, share photos from your trip before you get home, or do almost anything else online. Flash storage keeps the weight low – without a hard drive, this micro-monster weighs in at 0.89 kilograms . . . that’s less than two pounds!

With the 40 included applications, high-speed internet capability, and exquisite sound, the EeePC could become your best friend – move over, Fido!

  • newegg Easy to Use The Asus EeePC provides two modes of intuitive user interface: a full desktop mode for experienced PC users and an easy mode for inexperienced PC users to start using the EeePC quickly without checking through the manual.
  • newegg 7” LCD Screen The 7” LCD screen accommodates the Asus EeePC’s compactness and delivers a bight and extensive view for mobile Internet applications.
  • newegg Built-in 4GB Storage The Asus EeePC features a built-in 4GB S.S.D (Solid-State Disk), sufficient for regular Internet applications, for reduced power consumption, quick system boot and less susceptibility to shock damage.
  • newegg Supreme Network Connectivity With built-in 802.11b/g WLAN, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and a 56K modem, the Asus EeePC offers comprehensive network connectivity for free surfing on the Internet and your local network.

5 out of 5 eggs"it just works

Pros: Great price, solid build, great programs preloaded, untouchable operating system, small size (given), amazing speakers, one step factory restore!

Cons: cramped keyboard (a given on machine this size).

Other Thoughts: this is the best computer I have ever owned, I am a young man going into the computer technician field of work and this is the only machine I have ever seen that has never given me any trouble, simply take out of the box, turn on, and go, that's it, no stupid programs trying to sell you junk, just a good computer, I love it move every time I use it, sadly I love it more every time I use any other computer too, I have suggested this computer to everyone I know that is look for a new computer, it is just that good, thank you for reading.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great little machine. Replaced my aging Dell C600 with this. Combined with a 2 GB stick of memory, a 16 GB SDHC card, and WinXP it works great for on the go. I use Eeectl to control the fan/clock speeds and mine has no trouble playing Warcraft 3 when running at the full 900 MHz spec. Great for carrying to/from class since it's so small and light. Battery lasts 3+ hours when the CPU is throttled down.

Cons: The keyboard is somewhat tiny and takes some getting used to. The display drivers from ASUS really do suck, do yourself a favor and get the drivers straight from Intel.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for school, very affordable

Pros: Excellent to talk to class; lightweight, portable. I can fit it into my purse even. Affordable. Pre-installed Linux interface is easy to use even if your computer knowledge is limited. Perfect for web browsing and word processing. Best buy I've made all year.

Cons: If you have large hands the keyboard is hard to type on and takes a bit of getting used to. Also, the eepc is finicky about connecting to closed wireless networks at times. Overall, however, an excellent machine.

Other Thoughts: Excellent as a secondary computer. If you use the computer daily or plan on doing more than word processing and internet, this would be hard to use as your primary machine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Great price
extremely light
bright screen
enough power for everything up to light gaming
perfect for travel
good for taking notes at school
plenty of ports
VGA/audio output works well
huge ability to Mod/upgrade
great support via "fan base" (

Cons: Linux system not very flexible
will have to buy some type of external Hd if you install XP
short battery life with Wifi enabled

Other Thoughts: The linux thing isn't really a big deal. but someone who doesn't know how to install windows with out a cd drive. The 4 gb isnt an issue either, even if you decied to use xp you can reduce the xp install to under 600 mb (instructions on via the forums). The only real con is the short battery life... but you can usually be plugged in anyways. There are also after market batteries you can buy on online if you look around. This also a great little comp if you like to mod. I'm thinking about adding a touch screen. But for anyone considering whether or not to buy, or which model to buy, I would really suggest checking out the forums at they really help me.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I Needed

Pros: This device has amazing portability! It can connect to the Internet with a connection wizard that allows for various wire connections (DSL, cable, LAN, or VPN). I like that it uses Linux, which gives me experience and uses much less system memory than Windows XP. The updated BIOS allows one to boot from internal solid state harddrive or the USB MMC Card Reader (which turns an ordinary flash card into a harddrive with a format under settings).

Cons: The ability to add additional software with Linux. However, if you plan on installing Win XP, then you are not at a loss. There might be a way with the Linux Console under the File Manager, but I am not that familar with Linux or its commands yet. The external video port forces an expansion to the output monitor that causes the internal screen on the ASUS PC to be constricted in view.

Other Thoughts: A great buy!! This device is great for surfing the Internet, downloading files from the Internet or another PC. I wouldn't reccomend using it as a gaming PC with Win XP. However, it plays video (avi, mp4, SVCD...) with the memory upgrade. I reccomend getting a cooling pad for this device, if you plan on watching streaming video from the Internet with it, especially at full screeen.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value, but wait if you can

Pros: Price, size, weight, battery

Cons: The keyboard is small but it is functional. It took me about a day to master typing on the keyboard. My biggest beef with the keyboard is that you must press the keys firmly or sometimes they won't register. Light taps on the keys don't register most of the time even though the key seems to go down.

The operating system is somewhat restrictive for power users. If all you need is the internet, office software, and a few other things, it's fine. Install Windows XP or another Linux distribution if you want to use it beyond that.

Other Thoughts: I gave it a five because it is very good for the price.

I installed Arch Linux on it and it does things like play zsnes flawlessly. There are guides on intalling XP or other Linux distributions on EEEPC scattered around the internet.

I thought 800x480 resolution would be more of an issue. For me, it's not that annoying. I use 1440x900 and 1280x1024 on my other computers. Most websites render fine on the EEEPC and most applications work.

But I think you should wait as competitors like MSI, Dell, etc. are coming out with similar competitive products. If you give subnotebooks a year to mature up you will likely get a much better product for the same price. I got the EEEPC now because Summer classes are starting up soon and I wanted something to do notes on, etc.

But if you are considering purchase, I highly recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: -Size
-Speed (for price)

Cons: -Battery life less than I expected (Asus's high capacity battery, or some third party battery will be purchased soon.)
-Screen gets dirty fast
-Speakers are AWFUL
-The headphone jack leave deep gouges into my headphone's plug... I don't want to plug in my nice headphones, for fear of damage. Is this a problem with just mine?
-Runs HOT after a few hours of use. (Won't do that again...)
-Could have used one more USB, two are taken by my mouse adapter, and bluetooth adapter. (Why no built-in bluetooth, Asus?...)

Other Thoughts: I upgraded the RAM to 2GB before turning it on, and installed Windows XP before booting to Linux, so I have no comments on the default OS. This thing is being used as my main computer right now, perfect for surfing the web, use in school, and light gaming. (I've got Frets on Fire, Audiosurf, Counterstrike and Zelda Classic running with no lag whatsoever. The resolution could be better, but I can live with it. Hard drive performance is great, but size could use a boost. The 8G isn't worth the price difference, in my opinion. The SDHC slot is a godsend. :) An external CD/DVD drive is a must, if you don't have one already, as is an external hard drive. I know that for the total price that I've spent on this laptop, I bigger, more powerful one could have been bought, but I think that it being so incredibly tiny is the most important thing. I don't know how people have trouble typing on this laptop, I have rather large hands, and became used to it after about five minutes. Buy it NOW!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little pc

Pros: I'm writing this review from my eee. It is an awesome little machine. I had starcraft running under wine within 24 hours of receiving it. Right now I am streaming videos from in a hotel on a wireless connection while writing this. I love the functionality. I have installed vpnc and gnome-terminal after adding a debian repository to apt. I have everything I need to do work, it plays music and all my videos with no problem, and it runs games.

Cons: No complaints, it's great. I should mention that I find the remarks by other people amusing. "the screen is small" um duh?
"the keyboard is tiny" once again, duh. "only 4 gigs of space" what is your point? "i don't like linux" then why would you buy the one that runs linux? they sell these things with windows on them too.

Other Thoughts: Thanks Asus for another quality product. It's surprisingly rare to find new technology that truly does what you need.

4 out of 5 eggsportable and useful

Pros: small, light, integrated wireless, factory linux installed, ram is easily upgraded, integrated gpu works well with accelerated desktops in various linux environments. easy to hide in my employer's wiring closet with an external hdd for torrents to maximize use of bandwidth during periods of reduced business.

Cons: atheros wireless is difficult to get functioning w/most linux distros, cpu appears to be underclocked to 630mhz, xandros is severely limited for the advanced user (except, installing a new os is nothing new for most linux users), i can't seem to boot from the sd card

Other Thoughts: ubuntu installs and works well, except for wireless; sabayon 3.5 has an eeepc install that supports ALL hardware but lacks most necessary libraries, so emerging anything new is difficult. overall, the only thing that i find frustrating is that i cannot boot from the sd card; that would give me far more freedom to experiment (maybe i'll find an answer, eventually).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat ultraportable

Pros: Excellent lightweight linux machine. I am very pleased with its performance for having such an underpowered processor. The SSD is very fast and boots the OS quickly.

Cons: Small keyboard may be a problem for people with larger hands, this doesn't apply to me, I think its perfect. Screen resolution is 800x480, I am fine with this, but that is small if you are expecting to be able to view large webpages fullscreen.

Other Thoughts: I have been very happy with the eee over the past few months, my only real regret is that it doesn't have built in bluetooth. I picked up one the the cirago micro bluetooth adapters on newegg to solve this until the atom based eee's come out.
