Worked great, until it didn't.

Comments: Just over a year after purchasing the netbook, the ribbon cable to the LCD screen began causing errors. The display would violently shimmer neon green and pink. Not precisely the effect you want to see.

Luckily, the extended warranty I purchased through NewEgg has kicked in, and I'm now shopping for a replacement. I'll likely go with the 1215N-PU27, which has bluetooth capabilities.

Overall, until the recent graphical problems, I was very pleased with this netbook, and recommended it to several friends.

Cheap Power Pin on laptop broke

Comments: This netbook is a good choice if you're looking for something to browse the web, play videos or to do some light work in excel, autocad or photoshop. The atom processor is pretty wimpy though and will hold back the capable ion-2 graphics card, making most games unplayable. The processor is capable of 64-bit processing, though the system comes with windows 7 32-bit installed, apparently some of the drivers don't work properly in a 64-bit environment. I've seen a number of people mention a flimsy power cable as a problem, but I don't think it's as weak as everybody thinks. Also, i've seen people complaining about stiff touchpad buttons, but it actually broke in pretty quickly. I would note that the 1215B model is probably a better choice, since it has a little bit more processing power and a longer battery life in exchange for a slightly weaker graphics card.

Reliable and Fantastic

Comments: I bought this 6 months ago.

Upon opening the package, I immediately uninstalled the "bloatware" that came with it.

2 weeks later, I went to Volunteer in Haiti for 5 months. I brought this baby with.

While in Haiti, I worked outside - under an overhang. We were next to a dirt road, you could see the dust in the air. I used this computer every day, 12 hours a day, for 5 months, outside. It has gotten wet, dropped, covered in dust, and overall completely abused (tough living conditions.)

The power pin has held up fine, the screen has held up fine, the battery life is excellent.

The only complaint I have so far is that it needs a ram upgrade. 2 GB ships with it, but 4 GB can be installed on the cheap.

It also gets scratched easily, mine looks like it was through WW3.

** The touchpad works fine, some people have dry hands which will not activate the touchpad

one quick little guy

Comments: hard drive comes pre-partitioned. the 250gb hard drive is split into 2 drives. c and d. just a observation, no big deal

no cd drive, but its a netbook so that should be standard. i purchased an external cd burner and it works fine, just like if i had a cd drive built in

this netbook is the one of the fastest ones on the market. if you maintain it and keep it clean internally and externally, this netbook should last you a long time and run pretty much everything you need

Works in Linux, but beware

Comments: The decision ASUS made here was clearly in favor of performance over power efficiency. If you are looking to play games or watch HD video, this is a good deal. If you dont need that kind of performance, you will get better battery life out of something with a N-series processor like the N550.

I was using Fedora 14 for Linux on this. I was able to dual-boot just fine by deleting the second NTFS parition (which had no data on it).
