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.

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...
