* Actual battery life may vary with the product settings, usage patterns and operating environment.

The figure stated is only indicative of 95% of the actual battery life because Windows enters Standby Mode when the battery level drops below 5%.

Ordinarily the the 1025c would be an attractive but average netbook (with performance at or below previous generation models but with less energy consumption), but the poor graphics rendering in combination with the lack of RAM options took the 1025c from a four-star netbook down to a one-star rating.

I can't think of anybody who would benefit from the ASUS 1025c. It is sub par out of the box, which means mainstream users will be frustrated. While it can do the things it advertises, it doesn't do many of them well. The geeky among us who are brave and knowledgeable enough to turn sub-par devices into something usable will also be disappointed. Manually providing the much-needed RAM upgrade voids the warranty and the drivers necessary to take advantage of many of this netbook's features in other operating systems are poorly supported or non-existent. To find out why I've come to that conclusion, read the details below.

Otherwise, consider a Kindle Fire or smartphone for a cheap internet device, an AMD Brazos-powered netbook for an energy-saving multimedia device, or... well... if I had another productivity netbook to recommend, I would have purchased that instead.

Quick Pros:

- attractive casing
- solid build and keyboard
- perfect size for me
- decent price
- power-sipper/battery life

Quick Cons:

- lack of productivity = low value, despite decent price
- Intel chipsets fall short/aren't ready
- Poor support for OSes outside of 32-bit Windows 7 Starter
- Poor Intel graphics within 32-bit Windows 7 Starter
- 1gig RAM is not enough to be productive in Windows 7 Starter
- no USB 3.0
- Did I mention that the Intel chips fall short?

It was a toss up between this Asus and an Acer model comparative to this one. HOWEVER, I chose this one of because of the extremely long battery life. I was hesitant because of all the reviews regarding how slow the netbook ran, but I'm soooo glad I chose this one. It's awesome! So small and easily portable. After removing bloatware and turning off Windows update and other various 'services' by going into the administrative tools option, it runs lightening fast. Im not sure why everyone is saying it's slow. Mine is NOT. I've also installed various word programs and 3rd party software. The Windows starter platform DOES use around 500mb of the 1 gig of memory, but I still have plenty remaining for what I need the netbook to do.

Overall, the battery life is phenominal so, as a writer, I can take it where I want and dont have to worry about dragging around the power cord. I love my new netbook!

Its good, but it would be five stars if Asus handled the memory upgrade better. I have not tried to upgrade the memory yet, Asus indicates it is not user upgradable, but I will try after a few months of stable performance before I open it up and sacrifice the warranty. There is a on-line video showing that if you dismantle the thing completely you can get to the memory slot. At that point I may go to an SSD to bump up performance a notch...since it apparently will be totally dismantled anyway.

I had glitchy netflix issues, but when I took it off HD mode in netflix it worked fine. Really... is HD needed on a 10.1 inch screen...? I find standard deff is fine even with a 26" monitor plugged in, and it displays on an external monitor just fine.

At first, with a light weight anti-virus program and after uninstalling the bloat ware, I got an amazing battery life -- two days unplugged, on-and off use, this included some hours of netfix watching and web surfing and was very impressed. Speed was certainly as good as expected from a low end computer/netbook. Now, after installing the full-on virus protection and phone sync software, both insist on having more programs in continuous residence, it is painfully obvious that it needs the additional 1mb ram to preform as well.. now it runs at 80% of RAM without anything else running ... so as you use it, it has to cache more to the hard drive, so then the hard drive runs most of the time and this drains the battery much faster..... but even still I think it should get you through an 8 hour plane flight.

Really Asus, would it have killed ya to put a little door to upgrade the memory and keep it upgradable... like every other laptop I've had... ? (The documentation indicates some models have a door)...

I'm a very picky and a very techy guy. I don't truly like W7, Facebook, and I don't tweet. That said...

I purchased my 1025C Black for $149 fulfilled by Amazon. It was labeled just as "Good" condition. I expected a few flaws, but there are none!. I purchased many used items "fulfilled by Amazon" and have always been happy :)

This machine is very zippy for a small guy, the HDMI works nicely by just connecting your display to the port. The machine does not have a lot of bloat-ware on it. I did remove the crippled Office 2010, Asus Vibe "Asus fun center", the eee Dock (a pull down that has a few bloat apps on it), but the rest of the system were items that were useful. This maybe one of the first systems that I was able to use the "stock" OS on without feeling I had "Clean out" the system. Thanks Asus! hmm.. much hardware I'm collecting seems to bear ASUS's logos on them?

Does look it's best in the 1024x600 mode but the panel can switch to 1024x768 with a tad of pixel tearing. FN+F4 offers 800x600, 1024x600, and 1024x768 modes. Nice brightness and contrast.

Wireless Lan Adaptor:
this is the first net/laptop I have used that REALLY performs well using a N router. Yes, there is a difference between the G and N using this netbook.

Wired Lan Adaptor:
Using the performance monitor copying files over the LAN (Cat5 100Megabit) yielded a consistent 96-99% usage rate. very efficient (remember this is a netbook).

System is preloaded with Windows 7 Starter OS x86 (32 bit version). The Boot disk for a x64 version of W7 Starter will refuse to load the installer.

USB 3.0 Ports:
using a Patriot memory systems 32G USB 3.0 thumb drive, I was able to image the C:\ (12g data) to a image file in 12 mins.
