1 out of 5 eggsNever again

Pros: It was at the time a cheap netbook with a large screen. For the most part it still usable, but is collecting dust in my closet.

Cons: For my cons on this, over a year of owning it.

All three USB ports are dead. If I want to use a USB device I have to try and wiggle and then tape it in place, and only one port lets one do this.

The construction of the device is very poor and is now being held together with super glue. I have tried just tightening the screws but it seems that the plastic over the year + has just given in.

Other Thoughts: Over all it lasted me a little bit. I do take care of my devices as they do cost money. So I am a bit disapointed in how little this netbook lasted me. Sad to say just like ASUS's motherboards their netbooks don't last. I do have another smaller netbook also an ASUS and the screen went out on that three months in. I will never again buy ASUS.

3 out of 5 eggsThe last dying gasp of netbooks?

Pros: Lightweight, slide-cover for the webcam, good initial battery life, graphics sufficient for basic games, acceptable ram, low cost. Came without a costly operating system (Windows) but the shell was annoying to remove.

Cons: The graphics takes about 300mb of the ram, dropping total available for general usage down to 1.7gb. The front casing began to split near the mousepad; I used electrical tape to hold it together and it hasn't spread too far but is disappointing to see shoddy manufacturing. I bought this on 3/9/2011 and the battery broke on 9/3/12 leaving me with ~50% battery life (approximately 2 hours). I would like to get a replacement but the warranty on batteries are usually only a year.

Other Thoughts: I specifically purchased this because it was the only non-windows netbook (with at least 2gb of ram) on Newegg at the time. I would like to get a new netbook but all of the recent models have low ram and are way overpriced. Tablets have killed the netbook market - very disappointing.

5 out of 5 eggsFull Review - A+ Certified

Pros: 45NM CPU, HDMI, BLUETOOTH, Wireless N, Very Nice and Bright Screen. Battery Life 4hr+, 4250GFX, WEBCAM, SDCARD SLOT, 320GBHDD, VGA OUT, DDR3, PRICE, Did i mention Price?

Weights 3.2lbs, which is amazing, I didn't know how much I hated lugging my laptop around until I starting using this netbook. Its smaller, lighter, and just as good for what I need.

Runs Windows 7 with out any issues AT ALL. If you read otherwise, they either don't know what they are doing or are lying. Not only that, it runs it quite well and Asus supports this laptop with all the Windows 7 drivers.

Keyboard feels good, not cramped like other netbooks that I have used.

1366x768 resolution allows a full web browsing experience. In my opinion, anything less than 12in screen is something that you should carry with you in your pocket. I had a 10in netbook and I was constantly frustrated with trying to read the whole screen. This netbook actually feels like a lightweight laptop.

Cons: Poor Audio. The speakers are underneath the netbook which hurts the quality, seems fine with headphones though.

Webcam is not the best, gets the job done though.

Like others have said, the power adapter does get pretty hot and the plug that charges the laptop is rather tiny, unnecessary in my opinion.

Fn Keys are a pain to get working properly (most do work however and I don't use them much myself)

Mousepad gets in the way while typing which can be annoying, however on a slightly plus side, it is larger than most regular laptops which is a good thing when you actually want to use it.

Webcam has a slider privacy cover that seems to open and close in the wind, I finally got annoyed with it and just taped it.

It does get a lot of fingerprints but I'm a guy so it is nothing to cry over.

The hard drive does click, but it is normal, people may think that it is cheap but that is not the case, it is a "green" hard drive that is $45 by itself.

Other Thoughts: Alot of people downplay the performance of this laptop. If you are unsure about buying it because you don't want something slow, let me give you an idea of what I do on it.

Connect it to my 46in 1080p HDTV to watch movies

Play Oblivion, Fallout 3, Half-Life 2, and Portal 2.

Write papers using Office 2010, Browse with Firefox 5 and Internet Explorer 9, and use Winamp like there is no tomorrow, usually all at the same time. :)

I'm writing this review on it right now and more often than not, I forget that it is a "netbook". To me it is a laptop without a DVD drive.

For the price, this netbook cannot be beaten for the price. I don't think it can be beaten for $450. It is simply amazing to see all the features it has, and at $350 shipped, you are really stealing from them legally. Would I buy it again? I would buy one for everyone I know if I had the money. Despite a few flaws, this laptop offers so much that it is easy to overlook them.

Thanks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Netbook for Price

Pros: large beautiful screen, 5 hour battery life on windows 7 x32, fast processor considering its a single core, perfect for internet and email, full size keyboard, decent webcam, hdmi output, price is amazing for this product.

Cons: installing windows from USB was a little tricky, (the hit escape on boot tip helped), had major problems with windows 7 64 bit (did manual install of most drivers off cd, used the new egg reviews recommended x64 wireless driver, and everything seemed to be ok) but... started having freezing issues. the entire computer would lock up randomly after an hour of use. This problem was solved by switching to 32 bit windows 7. 1080 HD struggles, 720 HD works well. hard drive is a little loud and clicks randomly, but nothing to distracting to cause concern. screen and shell picks up fingerprints easily.

Other Thoughts: avoid the program that comes on cd that controls the CPU. It claims to save battery but I believe it may have been causing the lock ups. I worry about the quality of the hard drive. but hey, for 350 bucks this netbook cannot be beaten.

5 out of 5 eggsEEE not to be confused with EZ

Pros: Alright this is a nice, light, powerful and inexpensive netbook. Great for just surfing and minor programs, I picked it up specifically for college notes, etc.

Cons: Didn't come with OS, tried Ubuntu, had problems getting the right wireless, installed Windows 7 [had to wait and buy the external USB drive, on sale, yay newegg :)] once again wireless problems it would not detect windows 7 64 bit, so I had to go to asus website with a hard connection and download the old drivers, and now wireless is detected :) a bit of a hassle, but nothing a decent mind or patient person can't work out, especially if you consult friends or forums, maybe this review can help a few of you :)

Other Thoughts: None so far, I like it especially for the price, great feel, only real issue is i hit the touchpad frequently while typing so sometimes it reverts to where the mouse left off in word and messes my paper up :P

1 out of 5 eggsBattery doesn't work?

Pros: Matte finish

Cons: -Accidentally hit track pad a lot while typing, screws up whatever you are typing.
-Smudges very easily on track pad and inner casing
-Laptop arrived, plugged it in as instructed and then later installed windows 7, 8 hours after plugging it in. I removed the AC cord and it powers off immediately. I thought it just hadn't charged yet so I made sure it was off and charged it for another 12 hours. Still flashing the empty battery light, can't unplug it or it turns off. If I wanted that, I would have bought a desktop, not a netbook. Asus tech support is of no help and the manual nor website has any troubleshooting related to batteries.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: Size, resolution, boots quickly

Cons: Lack of a true operating system- Asus Express Gate is not an operating system like you expect from Microsoft Windows.Strongly suggest you think twice before you purchasing this. There is no manual included with notebook. Asus customer service is the worst in the industry- maybe any industry for that matter. They are useless and technical support pretends that they understand your issue but they don't. Do not buy an Asus product.!!! If you are still considering it after reading just try to call their customer service unit and ask a question.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little rig, easier than ten inchers

Pros: Compared to the dual-core Intels that cost more money, this is fine little rig. Its not like you'll be running Autocad on it, its not a desktop replacement, but for web surfing, checking emails on the road its fine. It is a crossover between a netbook and a notebook, I really like the screen size and bigger keyboard - and it still is lighter and has fantastic battery life. Much better than any notebook.

Cons: Touch pad is, well, a netbook touch pad. Not that great and the buttons are almost unuseable. You'll want a USB mouse for this. Glossy build materials are fingerprint grease magnets. After 10 minutes of us the gadget looks like you drug it through a cesspool. If Asus would quit making these glossy and add a texture finish, I'd pay extra for it. Get some sort of skin or covering for your gadget, it'll need it.

Other Thoughts: Since this is strictly a web surfer / email checker / media player, I installed Ubuntu 11.04 (Or whatever distro you like). This isn't really a Win7 machine,, but Ubu runs fine and everything works great - much snappier than Win7. Follow the directions to load the Ubuntu disk image to a USB drive, then set the BIOS to "Boot from Removeable" and you'll boot up the Ubuntu image right from the thumb drive, and you can try it out before installing. You'll want to go to the login preferences and set "Classic" as the default session, because the Unity interface is terrible on this machine.

Once installed though, everything worked fine on the stock Ubuntu 11.04 install. WiFi, sound, video display etc. all working so far. Just remember to enable the restricted drivers in Ubu.

Install a 4GB ram module (204 pin DDR3) and you get an even better experience.

So far this is a great machine and everyone in our house is playing with it and liking it a lot.

4 out of 5 eggsGood netbook but HDMI beware.

Pros: Reasonable price for an Asus 12.1 netbook. I could have gone with an AMD K325 or E350 netbook but finally I choose this one while it was on sale. For heavy stuff, I have a Core 2 Quad desktop so that this one really serves its purposes with its light weight, not too small screen, not too hot on your laps, reasonable 6 cells battery life, quality in video and sound. A little difficulty with its HDMI port but it works at the end. Windows Experience Index in Windows 7 gives a mark of 3.0 which is OK for me.

Cons: With the difficulty in connecting to the HDMI port, I expect a little bit more from Asus technical support but finally I end up resolving the issue myself. After a few e-mails exchanged when the netbook did not recognize my Sharp Aquos LCD TV LC40E77UN, I was suggested to issue a RMA that I did not want to do. Trying different things, it ends up that I have to upgrade the firmware for my Sharp LCD TV which solves the problem. A little difficulty as well with the on/off button size and location but it's minor.

Other Thoughts: If you try to connect to HDMI port and the netbook did not recognize the host display, try to look for an upgraded firmware for that host.
