ASUS Laptop X200MA-DS02 Intel Celeron N2815 (1.86GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 11.6" Windows 8.1
  • Intel Celeron N2815 (1.86GHz)
  • 4GB Memory 500GB HDD
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • 1366 x 768
  • Windows 8.1

Pros:

+Big enough and not too small.
+1366x768 is good resolution in this 11.6" screen size.
+HDMI out drives a large 1920x1080 display fine.
+WiFi includes 5 GHz, a pleasant surprise
+Decent performance with WIndows 8.1, though I haven't done much on it yet.
+Keyboard and touch pad are pretty good.
+USB3

Cons:

-Battery is not removable.
-Screen color gamut saturation is not great, but there are adjustments. For $250 it's good enough.
-Playing a 1080p mp4 video on an external 1920x1080 monitor while also driving the netbook screen loads both cores to about 100%

Other Thoughts:

*Just had this a couple of days but I may order another.
*For $250, running Ubuntu, this seems way more useful than a Chromebook. For price/performance this seems incredible.
*Plan to install Ubuntu 14.04 as dual boot, which I am hoping has pretty zippy performance.
*Don't know about battery life. Will test more and add another review.
*Should be a perfectly fine family notebook - all we need is browsing, video (Prime and Youtube), access to Google docs, LibreOffice. Why pay more? I don't intend to edit video on this!
