It is great and so fast.

I've loaded it with Office Professional, Quicken Premier, Acrobat Standard and a host of other software to make it a very capable and highly mobile business computer.

Seek out previous-generation Pine Trail Intel chipsets if you want a reliable Linux netbook immediately.

Negatives:
- No memory access bay. You need to tear it apart to upgrade the ram
- Base product under-spec'd at 1 gig of RAM
- Takes some extra cash, physical effort, and warranty voiding to upgrade into a phenomenal mobile device

Picky Preferences:
+- Keyboard a little "soft", kinda wished key's had more "click"
+- Sorta wished physical mouse positions were on the left and right side of trackpad ala the original hp mini's.
+- 2 Finger scroll for track pad not very effective. 1 Finger scroll would've been better.

Positives:
+ Intel N2800 supports up to 4gigs of ram (need to upgrade windows to take advantage of this)
+ Very responsive machine even in default configuration.
+ HD upgrade to SSD relatively simple after opening chassis
+ Runs 720p vids smoothly. 1080p varies, but mostly good. Supposedly will be 100% smooth once intel gets around to updating drivers.
+ HDMI Output
+ USB 3.0 + USB Charger (very handy as a backup phone charger)
+ Bluetooth
+ Amazing battery life (8 hours+ average)
+ Purple

Would've rated it a perfect if it kept the same price but was easier to upgrade or if it was a little more expensive but with all the upgrades as a default option.

Update #1: If you install a SSD and discover that your netbook randomly freezes because the SSD falls asleep and isn't recognized when it wakes up....try uninstalling the intel rapid storage driver...seems to have worked for me.

ninja edit: bumped review up to 4 stars because it isn't a bad machine by any stretch in its default configuration. It just tickles a funny bone in most techies that a modern windows computer would come stock with 1 gig of ram without a way to easily upgrade.

Not a Windows Home Premium - it has the Starter edition! The seal on the ASUS box was open. Having received from Amazon, I had a weird feeling about opening the box knowing that the seal was open (had an open arrow-shaped `flap` of the dark green sticker pointing up). In a well-lit room discovered that the LED screen has an interlaced whitish-gray line pattern on the whole left half of the screen (makes almost impossible to read text on websites), touching/pushing the bottom part of the lid takes care of the problem until I move the lid (to adjust an angle or to see better). Unfortunately, the LED issue has been discovered after I [carefully] installed 4GB of RAM and voided the warranty. Heck, never bought anything but Toshibas before. OK, at least 4GB memory has been recognized by BIOS! I found instructions on u-tube `Upgrading an Asus 1025C RAM to 2GB [HowTo]` except I put in a 4GB stick (a SINGLE stick everybody). Blaming myself for screwing up the display by installing the new RAM I have opened the netbook again and literally found nothing wrong, so .. having zero warranty coverage, I had unclipped the plastic frame around the LED screen to expose wiring and discovered that of the 2 sets of conductors leading to the LED panel the one on the left is completely wrinkled, so no wonder that by pushing on it I was reinstating conductivity - poor wormanship (or cheap parts)! As stubborn as I am, I decided to order the replacement LED replacement panel and `hopefully` in 3 days and 60 bucks later will have my .. check this .. PINKiSH netbook ready. Needless to say that to enjoy the installed RAM to the fullest I had to upgrade away from the Starter edition.Read more ›

I purchased a returned 1025CE here from a Canadian vendor and it arrived on 18 October. It is a fabulous, highly mobile and very capable netbook. The installation of a 4GB RAM module took about 25 minutes. Then I upgraded it to Windows 7 Ultimate x86. The GMA 3650 prevents it from accepting the installation of 64bit Windows 7 so I can only get 2.99GB of usable RAM.

This is an excellent value for the price. I've loaded it with Office Professional, Quicken Premier, Acrobat Standard and a host of other software to make it a very capable and highly mobile business computer. The line Asus has replaced the Eee netbooks with is over twice the price of which you can currently buy 1025CE returns at Amazon.

Amazon is getting the returns due to the 1GB RAM module, the upgrade of which requires limited disassembly of the netbook. Just follow the Italian movie on YouTube to install the 4GB RAM module. WITHOUT THE 4GB RAM UPGRADE, I would not recommend purchasing the 1025CE.

If you need an inexpensive mobile laptop, this one is at the head of the value pack, even if 64bit drivers are never released for the GMA 3650. The Windows Experience Index is 3.4 broken down as follows:

Processor: 3.6
Memory (RAM): 5.3 (with 4GB RAM)
Graphics: 5.9

This netbook uses the Intel Cedar Trail chipset, which is (unlike other Intel graphics chips) outsourced to an open-source-unfriendly manufacturer, PowerVR, who reluctantly provides very poor driver support. It is extremely difficult to get native resolution under Ubuntu. It makes this netbook essentially useless.

PowerVR has to date only "released" binary-blob graphics drivers, and their release process is to modify the MeeGo distribution. Users of other distributions will have to hope that those blobs can be extracted by experts and added to their own. There may be some open-source 2D support coming in kernel releases >3.6.3, but that will provide only framebuffer support, none of the fancy features this chip advertises.

I have read on some forums that installing MeeGo on this machine will have working graphics, but will have trouble with some other hardware, like wifi.

Seek out previous-generation Pine Trail Intel chipsets if you want a reliable Linux netbook immediately. Or, wait for Intel to start making their own graphics chips again, like the "Valley View" in 2013.
