If you want a small smart netbook for emails and websearching this is perfect. Comes with a carry pouch and cloth bag for the power cable - all in a 'gift box'. I bought the chocolate one and as the review said "it's as lickable as a snickers".
This computer has the exact same hardware as almost the whole eeepc brand, including the wifi n card, thus it's very reliable and efficient.
The SSD is a bit surprising at first, for it has low loading speed, but high writing speed. Not a problem, except when you want to transfer files. The hardware capacity (2 * 16 GB) is OK.
Of course, the battery doesn't last long compared to newer models, but 5 hours is sufficient for using the computer in the transports, which is after all its purpose.
The real surprise comes from the touchpad : it's much more enjoyable than on an eeepc 100X ! It is clearly delimited on the computer, it has plenty of funcions including the "double-finger scrolling", which is VERY VERY useful.
I am really impressed with the S101. I installed MSOffice, Trend Anti Virus, Chrome, Irfanview, Axcrypt and various other software tools in the solid state drive and parked my archive files there as well. I use the 16GB SSD card for my work files - documents, spreadsheets, Outlook data files and other stuff including some videos all without any problems. I brought an 8GB USB memory stick for extra storage but I have yet to find a need for it. The S101 sits on my desk hooked up to a full sized screen, keyboard, mouse, printer and scanner most of the time but it is a lightweight joy to unplug and carry off in my briefcase. Even the power supply is light. On the other I have found the eeestorage inoperable so far.
Very light to take abroad. I have just been to Canada and America and it linked in to internet effortlessly and speedily. Can also link into work files. Brilliant for keeping in touch - I love it. It arrived very quickly (next day) from the suppliers.
The quality of this netbook is outstanding. It's beautifully engineered and the technical specifications do not do justice to the performance of this small but perfectly designed computer. Prior to purchasing this item I had not uses an Asus product being a long standing fan of Apple laptops. I currently own the new Apple Macbook which is too heavy to be really mobile. I am more than happy to use the Asus laptop as the solution to my mobile needs. Purchase a spare battery if you can and try not to load software you really do not need to use whilst being mobile as the disc space is a little limited.
