This is emphatically not a ninja laptop, but for day-to-day web browsing, youtube, iplayer, spotify and so on, it works perfectly. Design and build quality are astonishing for under two hundred quid; it works out of the box; wireless reception is extremely good and the two-finger zoom-in on the trackpad is a useful extra. The sound output is very tinny from the built-in speaker, but the quality of the output via headphones or an external system is extremely good - better than from the much more expensive HP machine I use for work.
If you're looking for a netbook to stream music, manage your iTunes, catch up on blogs and email and so on - and it's going to spend 90% of its time in your kitchen, bedroom etc - this is a fantastic bargain. If you're a long-distance traveller, pay more for the bigger battery.
After initial charging up and using the netbook it was obvious the battery supplied was only a 3 cell battery and not the 6 cell extended as advertised. After contacting a very unhelpful Amazon rep. who said the only solution was to send the item back and it would be replaced, I was fubbed off to call Asus direct to see if they would send the correct battery.
Obviously Asus didn`t want to know as it was not their problem.
On recontacting Amazon I spoke to another rep who could not do enough to help. The outcome was that Amazon could not guarantee the next item would have the correct battery as their policy is not to open items as they have manufacturers seals on them (good policy) so I was refunded the price of a 6 cell battery to my account. I ordered a 6 cell battery through Amazon and it arrived a few days later.
Full marks to the lady I spoke to at Amazon on my second telephone call, she understood the problem and was prepared to look at the options that would be best for me as opposed to just send the whole item back and we will replace it.
This is a nice netbook, I hope other people who bought this item as described have checked the battery to see if it is the 6 cell one.
As a final note I see the item discription has now been changed.
holiday and used it for Emails and photo folders......Just the item to use mobile, good hard drive, did fit a second
memory to make 2Gb......Windows 7 Starter is very easy to use.....So Amazon thanks.........
All in all a great all round machine at an exceedingly good price and will serve you well.
