ASUS Eee PC 1215B Review

 

Netbooks are made to address the basic needs of netizens out there. The hardware specs are made just right for browsing the net, checking emails, editing documents, listening to music, and other light stuff that you can do with a netbook. But then we...

Doesn't work

 

I bought this netbook for my mother. She just wanted something simple so she could surf the net. From the first day we got error after error. All sorts of problems with display drivers that caused it to freeze and shutdown. No use taking it to get...

great netbook great price

 

This netbook is great, i mainly use it to watch bluray rips, surf the web, netflix, and play games like starcraft 2 and devil may cry. In my opinion this laptop is built very well, and after upgrading the ram to 8gb its even faster. I have not had any...

touchpad issues make unitunacceptable

 

Like other reviewers, I've had touchpad issues from day one. I haven't had the opportunity to ask ASUS about the issue but for the time being this laptop is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too frustrating to use regularly.

The best deal around if not for two problems

 

Picked this up recently on sale for under three Benjamins. Love the 720P resolution, long lasting battery life, USB 3.0 and HDMI ports! Hate the spacebar that requires you to press only from the middle, and the trackpad that randomly fails but can...

The Good the Bad and the Ugly

 

The Good: Comes with Windows 7 Home and Full 720P resolution flat panel. Compact and light weight. Includes USB3 port. The Bad: Why windows 7 Home 64 bit version? Unit is limited to 4 GB memory. The processor is very slow. It took forever to load...

There are problems with this netbook

 

Well I had great expectations from this netbook. It functioned well for about a week and then the touch pad started to behave erratically. Stopped to move the mouse as directed, a click to open a link closed the page or flat out jumped to a different...

Better than a netbook.

 

I bought this for my wife to replace a 5yr old laptop that the battery died and always had to be plugged in. She just uses it for web apps and videos. I liked this unit because it wasn't a netbook and already had Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on it...
