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

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...
