4.0 out of 5 stars Great device and does what it says on the Tin, 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great device and does what it says on the Tin. I have now used it to travel to and from France using my Nexus 6 and the TomTom app, and it works perfectly - better in fact than the TomTom dedicated device I have been using for years.

If you have a Nexus 6, than this will do the job for your car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little additional device, 28 Nov. 2012
I'm most definitely moving more to using cloud applications , and using an iPad was part of that move, but when you want to type a more substantive post, then the iPad keyboard does run out of steam. This device is a great compromise, as I keep it in the lounge for fast access to the web and it has excellent battery life - over 7 hours so far. You can just close the lid and open it again later, and your up and running in seconds. The look and feel is that of a cheaper version of a Mac Book Air. To be clear though, at £700 less expensive, it isn't an Apple. The track pad is good and very usable and the gestures work well. I really like the way it links into the Google infrastructure, with gives you immediate access to all the apps you have already installed with Chrome. It will work though with any standards compliant web applications.

The Google Chrome browser is renowned for speed, and although this certainly is not designed to be the fastest kit on the block, it is perfectly respectable. I always have multiple tabs open, and the experience is good.

This device is not designed to replace a full machine for really heavy duty applications, but then in reality, how often do you need those? With virtual machines in the cloud, this is becoming less important by the day anyway.

I think for most people, who just want to browse the web and use cloud applications, this unit is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an extremely useful and productive device, 14 Aug. 2008
I took delivery of this little unit yesterday, and have been impressed by it's performance and new applications.

Asus have added an auto 3G detection utility, which worked perfectly with the T-mobile USB stick I tested it with. They have modified the office suite to Sun's Star office from Open Office, and included a dictionary application amongst other new applications.

The new Intel Atom processor is faster than the previous under-clocked Celerons in the earlier versions, and all the applications are faster. I also like the bigger screen which allows full page web browsing, and the font size is easily modified. The screen appears bright and clear, and is also an improvement over the previous 701.

The new keys at the top of the keyboard offer instant suspend and modifying the level of performance you want, speed for applications or extra battery longevity. You can also launch Skype with a single key press. I managed 5.5 hrs of battery life while using the wi-fi adapter but dimming the screen slightly. The keyboard is also a massive improvement on the 701, and typing a document with it will be a breeze.

This is an ideal machine for someone looking for a very simple interface but a reasonably powerful machine. It offers easy access to the Internet with Firefox, a good wordprocessing facility, good music management, good photo management etc. There is also plenty of storage available with the 40GB solid state disk. I'm glad I purchased the SSD version over the hard disk version, as the hard disk will reduce battery life considerably.

If you are looking for a netbook/mini laptop I would definitely put this on the short list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent laptop for mobility and new users, 4 Jan. 2008
I bought this laptop for it's mobility, but have found its versatility to be very useful. It has a very simple interface that anyone can use within minutes, it has all the apps installed that you would require on a laptop, and everything works perfectly out of the box. It for instance offers pdf and ebook readers, which are very useful for information access on the move and the inclusion of an SD card reader is also handy for digital photo usage and manipulation.

It has very fast start-up and shutdown speeds, and suspends and resumes without any major issues.

The battery offers between 3 and 4 hours if you shut down services you don't need on the move ie wireless.

I would recommend one of these without hesitation for many different types of user, from people who want an ultra mobile to children for use in the house.

1.0 out of 5 stars An extremely poor Windows NT/2000 security book, 2 Oct. 2001
I bought this book with particular interest on extra security ideas for Windows 2000. The title would lead you ,to the incorrect, conclusion that there is some coverage of windows 2000.
The book deals with the ISO stack, and beginners TCP/IP, Cisco router access lists, firewalls, and scanners, everything but Windows 2000.
Then we have the Windows chapter, which is exclusively based on NT 4.0, with the odd minor mention of Win2k. This book was published in 2001, and the author comments that the latest version of IIS is version 4.0.
The title of this book is incorrect, and if I could get my money back, through mis-representation, I would.
The chapters on access lists and TCP/IP are fine for beginners, but then why not call the book, Network security for beginners.
Unless you are very new to network security, I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for security information on Windows 2000.
