Pros: BIG screen, BIG HDD, fast processor, LOTS of RAM, lots of pluses.
I'm not sure about the other complaints about the WiFi not working, mine worked straight out of the box. Everything else is working perfectly, this is easily the best laptop I've ever bought for the price. Refurb or not, you wouldn't even know.
Newegg is awesome, delivered the laptop to me one day early (as usual).
Cons: Other than running with WIndows 8 (not a fan) there are no cons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its got a nifty albeit useless LCD screen on the front
Cons: Wow, where to start. WELL, I've been a VERY loyal D-Link customer up until this point. The router worked fine for about a month (despite the overly-difficult setup for wireless). But then, without warning, the whole network started slowing down, then pretty much came to a stop. And that was with the WIRED connections. The wireless radio was working fine for about 2 months, and then it stopped working ENTIRELY.
Don't bother going to the website or trying to get some tech support or customer service. You will be wasting your time. So much for telling all my friends about how great D-Link systems are. Now I need to find a RELIABLE system.
Other Thoughts: What else is there to say?? Other than don't waste your hard earned money on this router, and this company?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice, boots up fast; seems to run great with Office 2010, and other software I use in the course of my work. HDMI output is great especially for hooking up to TV or other monitor to show videos to clients. Overall great netbook. Fast customer service response too (see below). The picture on NewEgg doesn't do it justice, as the picture is more "pinkish" as noted by another reviewer; it's actually a nice almost metalic red.
Cons: LOTS of pre-installed junk (aka bloatware) that had to be uninstalled. Not a big fan of pre-partitioned hard drives either (250 GB drive is partitioned from the factory as a 100 GB and a 150 GB split). The biggest foul (and the reason it only got 4 eggs) is the fact that the documentation, manuals and even ASUS's own website is completely devoid of any technical data that would be useful to a buyer. Most notably, the complete absence of upgrade information such as RAM type and speed, and maximum supported RAM. It comes with 2GB of RAM; but that is the maximum that it supports to begin with. It would have been nice to know (BEFORE I bought a 4GB stick of RAM) that it was already maxed out, coming out of the box. I figured this out after working with ASUS's customer service. Again, that's not so much NewEgg's fault as it is ASUS's fault for not providing detailed information about it's products to the consumer.
Other Thoughts: This is the second netbook from ASUS that I bought from NewEgg; the first one still performs great. This machine (the 1201PN) would be so insane if it could take advantage of 4GB of RAM (or more). I don't know what it would take to make it possible (a BIOS update maybe?)READ FULL REVIEW
