5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps my best buy, ever! 18 May 2008
By B. Tovey VINE VOICE
I bought the Eee as a second computer, since my regular laptop is just too heavy to be portable. In contrast, the Eee fits in a large handbag and weighs less than a kilo.

Having configured an advanced desktop as opposed to the more personal-organiser-style interface that is the default, I find that the battery life isn't particularly great - but it's pretty rare to be far from a power source for very long, and the Eee has so many features that make up for this.

The screen seems very small at first if you're used to a normal laptop/desktop, but once you're used to it it's perfectly fine even for web browsing and so on. Equally, you may make more typos than usual for a little while as you get used to the keyboard - but it's a million times easier than texting on a phone, and we're all used to that by now!

The preloaded Linux (Xandros) operating system is very easy to use and configure, even for a lifelong Windows user. In fact, it convinced me to make the switch to Linux on my main computer too. The tools available, such as the OpenOffice suite, are comparable to their mainstream counterparts, and can save into standard file formats such as .doc and .xls. Added to this, the machine has the advantage of far more powerful tools for configuration and programming than is available to the average Windows user, and a little research can help you get more out of your computer than you might ever have imagined. There's a ton of free online documentation for both Linux and the Eee specifically, so you're never alone if anything goes wrong. (Which it hasn't for me so far.)

You'll need some extra storage for your files. The SD card slot in the machine means that you can add a few GB of memory which just sits in the machine, and you can add USB devices if you need to.

This is a fantastic machine, and I have been thankful on so many occasions that I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Machine 1 Feb 2008
Well you have to able to cope with a small screen and thereby a smaller keyboard, but this is a small price to pay for such a light and quite sturdy device. It is so quick and easy to use that I can rarely be bothered to use my main PC at home anymore, and it is so portable that it is a rare journey when you do not take the notebook with you.
Excellent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus EEEPC 28 Jan 2008
This is a brilliant traveling companion if you want to surf wirelessly and do some windows based work as the Linux programmes work quickly and well with Word documents. (I'm thinking of abandoning Windows OS on my home and work PCs). It is pretty intuitive and quick to get up and running and connected.
Films can be viewed comfortably on the 7" screen from USB sticks and the battery life is pretty good.
An ideal computer to take on holiday to allow you to keep up with your emails and the battery life is pretty good too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 17 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase
I feel a bit mean giving it only 4 stars as all the preceding reviews gave it full marks, but I am very pleased with it overall.

It's good points? Well it is small and light while still feeling robust - you tend to take it out and about more often than you do a laptop because it's not so much of a hassle. Firing up from cold is very quick, as is locking onto a wi-fi connection. There is plenty of useful software installed - the office features seem every bit as good as Microsoft - and the photo and video software seem to cope with anything I have needed so far.

It's bad points - well, yes it is small and fiddly and that affects the speed with which you can use it - scrolling across the screen on web pages gets annoying - you could reduce the size of the pages to fit but then you would have trouble reading them. Linux is not quite as intuitive for those of us brought up on Windows, but I'm getting used to it. You might think that with no moving parts battery life would be better than a full size laptop, but it isn't. Also remember that less software is compatible with Linux - it refused to recognise my Canon DSLR forcing me to buy a seperate card reader.

Overall, I would say that this is excellent value for money but remember it is not as easy to use as a full sized laptop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, ultra-portable laptop 15 Aug 2008
By Roger W
This is an excellent little laptop. In fact, "laptop" is maybe not the word - it's almost too small to fit well on my lap. Extremely handy for travelling.

The pre-installed Xandros OS is nicely optimised for boot speed, so it'll be up and running from cold in about 30 seconds. The packaged software's more than enough for office-type use, web browsing, etc.

I have mine set up to dual-boot, using an Xubuntu installation on an SD card. This works nicely with a little tweaking (boot isn't as fast, but you get more choice of free software from the Ubuntu repositories, and the Linux development tools I'm used to). I understand they can also run Windows XP (and possibly Vista), if you're that way inclined.

No real drawbacks I can think of - the small screen, and inevitably limited data storage space, are part of the spec. of such a device, rather than faults. I find it best to use external flash drives for file storage.
