ASUS 1015E-DS01 Notebook Intel Celeron 847 (1.1GHz) 2GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 10.1" Windows 8 64-Bit
  • Intel Celeron 847 (1.1GHz)
  • 2GB Memory 320GB HDD
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • 1366 x 768
  • Windows 8 64-Bit

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.
