Good laptop for the money
Pros: Great price! Bought while on sale for $399 with free shipping. 4GB of RAM! Nice screen.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Replaced Win 7 home with Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit. Everything works if you select the "download 3rd party drivers" while installing (downloads wireless card drivers). If it goes on sale for $399 again, it's too good a deal to pass up.
Doesn't charge my 5th gen ipod
Pros: Allows syncing of ipod properly.
Cons: When I plug this into my iPod I get the message "Charging is not supported with this accessory." The Apple manufactured iPod cable works fine, only this 3rd party one does not seem to function properly.
Overall Review: Not sure if this is a defective cable, or the product does not function as described. I am requesting an RMA.
Recertified Eee PC 1005HAB
Pros: Nice little computer for the buck. Installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix as soon as I opened the box, and everything worked perfectly. Runs pretty well, and can handle all kinds of basic browsing, watching youtube videos, etc. Screen is a decent size, and I like the keyboard better than most netbooks I've tried. Overall, for $200 + shipping, it's a good computer for its intended purpose.
Cons: If you're looking for a desktop replacement, obviously look elsewhere. This computer isn't a great multitasker, and I would strongly consider getting a 2GB SoDimm to double the memory.
