ASUS 1015E-DS03 Notebook Intel Celeron 847 (1.1GHz) 2GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 10.1
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well with Kubuntu (which I far prefer to Ubuntu and which is easy to install). Has webcam and built-in mic (for Skype, etc.), VGA connection for external monitor, HDMI connection for external monitor. Works well with Kubuntu (which I far prefer to Ubuntu and which is easy to install).

This is one of the better inexpensive netbooks for me.

Cons: Requires an external CD/DVD USB drive (I use the LG Slim DVD Writer with it).

HP G60-438NR NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T4200 (2.00GHz) 3GB Memory 250GB HDD Intel GMA 4500M 16.0
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Built -in webcam, mic. Generous hard drive, RAM. Works well with Kubuntu Linux Jaunty. 16:9 widescreen (slightly less desirable than 16:10, but good for movies). Intel graphics works ok with both Linux and games. Atheros wireless (B/G/N) works fine with Windows and Linux. Smooth, stylish, unobtrusive case.

Cons: Recovery disk overwrites entire hard drive and all data. Main keyboard and touchpad off to left (due to number pad on right). Buttons in odd positions due to same. Some buttons smaller due to same.

Other Thoughts: Once I figured out how to shrink the partition (from Internet advice, as the HP helpdesk (overseas) was absolutely clueless), create new partitions, and install 64-bit Kubuntu Linux, I was very happy with this laptop. All hardware works out of the box with Linux.

This is a revised review from my earlier review.

HP G60-438NR NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T4200 (2.00GHz) 3GB Memory 250GB HDD Intel GMA 4500M 16.0
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Built-in webcam, wireless, large hard drive and RAM pre-installed

Cons: Windows Vista (32-bit) installed, pre-installed HP junkware, widescreen, touchpad buttons difficult to use, no volume control knob/buttons, Intel graphics

Other Thoughts: 15 hour startup process required to remove/adjust pre-installed spamware and spyware. Difficult to add/adjust partitions for Linux due to HP software. If you are a simple-minded consumer needing a basic laptop and are willing to accept MS Windows and HP programs, this is adequate. For power users, this computer is a frustrating experience.
