This review is from: Asus Eee PC X101CH 10.1 inch Netbook - White (Intel Atom N2600 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 320GB HDD, LAN, WLAN, Webcam, Windows 7 Starter) (Personal Computers)
Writing this review on my Asus Eee PC X101CH 10.1 inch Netbook - White.
After deciding on a netbook over a tablet having used my brothers netbook i wanted one.
I went with this product because there was no other netbook in the market that was at this price.
This product out of the box without upgradeble ram is slow. Do not let that discourage you on buying this product. Read further to understand why.
Design is solid and very pretty, lightweight and useable.
Out of the box like previously mentioned first inital use the netbook is slow.
My first step - Get Windows 7 updates (will take a while)
My second step - Remove bloatware that comes with the Netbook.
Remove bloatware that comes with the netbook. If you don't know what to uninstall from the programs list in control pannel. This link will show you what you need to uninstall.
After doing this the difference? Very noticeable.
My Third step - Readyboost.
After reading about readyboost and understanding it i purchased a Sandisk (ULTRA) Class 10 SDHC Card with 8GB Size @ 30MB/S. I then recieved this badboy and inserted it into the netbook and formatted it to NTFS @ Max capacity. (Right click on the drive and click format in my computer) Then right clicked properties on this badboy and selected Readyboost and put it on full capacity (all of the card).
I then inserted my 8GB Crucial usb memory stick and formatted it @ NTFS and then again set it to readyboost.
Both devices are running at full capacity on readyboost and the computer is multitasking and running software with speed and no problem.
Enjoy this product there is nothing wrong with it and for the price its a bargin. Thats of course if you know what your doing.
