4 out of 5 eggs Great little netbook for the money. :) 11/11/2013

This review is from: ASUS Laptop 1015E-DS03 Intel Celeron 847 (1.1 GHz) 2 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 10.1" Ubuntu

Pros: - Nice keyboard (overall)
- Inexpensive
- Decent battery life
- Powerful enough for real work

Cons: - Bad touchpad
- Small right Shift key
- Problems upgrading to Ubuntu 13.04 because of wireless card

Other Thoughts: If your needs are moderate, this is a great little netbook. You shouldn't expect to do heavy video editing or hardcore gaming on it, but you can do word processing, some development, and number crunching like a champ (along with any GIMP work you need to do). I have MySQL, PHP, and Apache running on it, and they all run fine. If you require more than a Chromebook can give you, but an ultrabook would be overkill, it's a great little laptop.

Just be aware of two things (referenced in the Cons section of the review):

1) You'll want to pick up a pointing device. The trackpad on this thing is just bad.

2) If you upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04, you'll probably experience a problem with your wireless card. explore the problem beforehand or research it on another machine when your wireless card is inaccessible. The wireless card problem isn't insurmountable, but you'll need to google for the solution. (If I could, I'd post a link to it here.)
