ASUS Laptop 1015E-DS03 Intel Celeron 847 (1.1 GHz) 2 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 10.1

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great little laptop for the price. A good introduction to Linux and Ubuntu, and light weight.

Cons: Firstly the mouse. It is super touchy and the right click function is nigh impossible given that. But I can handle that, and even bought a mouse to go along with it.

The Wireless card on the other hand... now that's another story.
The Broadcom 4313 has absolutely TERRIBLE performance with Ubuntu software Just google BCM4313
. In 12.04, default Ubuntu package (think Windows 7 instead of 8) the Wireless card was able to pick up my home network no problem, but as soon as I traveled I lost connectivity to any other network. First the networks wouldn't show up, then the card wouldn't connect. I did online trouble shooting, Ubuntu software fixes. Tried a variety of different drivers. The thing just didn't work anymore.


Other Thoughts: Its a perfect little laptop but I think its a bit disingenuous on Asus' part to package a wireless card with KNOWN issues with Ubuntu. RMA'd

Asus, I love your stuff. I bought a x401a instead and am looking forward to getting it in the mail. But seriously, come on.
