ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB-RBLU005S Midnight Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60 GHz) 10.1" 1GB DDR2 Memory 160GB HDD Netbook
ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB-RBLU005S Midnight Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60 GHz) 10.1" 1GB DDR2 Memory 160GB HDD Netbook

Pros: Price, for 200 is a great little netbook to throw in my backpack when I go to class. Plenty to use office products, browse the web, and play older games.

Cons: Battery is not the one advertised. Has about a 5-6 hour life under most circumstances, so it is enough.

Overall Review: Originally came with a faulty keyboard. Newegg is great, and quickly got me a fully functioning unit. First time I ever had a problem with a refurb, and ASUS was completely useless on the phone.

ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB-RBLU001X Navy Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60 GHz) 10.1" 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook
ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB-RBLU001X Navy Blue Intel Atom N270(1.60 GHz) 10.1" 1GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook

Pros: It seems to be working now

Cons: After setting up windows, the keyboard was behaving as if control was stuck. After trying to press both ctrl buttons, tapping each 5 times, ensuring nothing was stuck under the keys, the problem would not go away. I called Asus customer support, and the guy told me the buttons were broken and to take it back to best buy (even after I explained I bought it on newegg). I did some digging, and ended up changing the keyboard layout to English Malaysia. Seems to have solved the problem, will report in a week or two.

Overall Review: Extremely annoying setup issue, other than that seems good so far.
