I like iTunes, Spotify, and games like Angry Birds.
Kevin A. Chavis
I know they have to be small because of the size and weight, but this one has an odd layout and the keys are a little mushy.
J. Thornbrugh
Don't know if I just got a bad system or what but right now I'm going to try Joli OS and see if it works better.

Netbooks fill two needs for me. First, I need to access the Internet when I am on the move. Most of the information I need to make a living is somewhere in the cloud and for all practical purposes my browser is my business desktop. I do, however, need to write as well as read. I am writing this on the X101 in Google docs. A tablet doesn't work for me; I must have a keyboard.

I also have to write when I am not connected to the Internet--something that happens to me fairly often. That means I also need a word processor.

To keep me connected and writing, or just writing when not connected, I want a throw-away machine that boots up and shuts down quickly. By a throw-away, I mean something I can ruin by leaving it out in the rain without feeling that I have suffered a significant financial loss. The quick boot is so that I don't have to leave the thing in sleep mode all day to avoid the pain of restarting it. I don't need a lot of computing power or storage. I don't use power hungry applications or keep information I care about on netbooks.

After a weekend with the Asus X101 with Meego, I have the following observations.

Internet: Everything is fine here. The Chromium browser works well and the screen is bright. Videos, images, pdfs, and other files display easily. The wi-fi connects painlessly.

Word Processor and Office Applications: The Asus X101 comes with OpenOffice and a very basic text editor. I use OpenOffice in my physical office and like it in that context. OpenOffice, however, is big and acts a bit clunky on the X101. It opens slowly and at times the low powered X101 struggles with it.

Color Name: Black
Primary Use: School note-taking and mobile writing

- Keyboard is quiet while typing
- Boots in 17 seconds (yes, I counted!)
- Chrome loads very quickly and smoothly, even with multiple tabs open
- GoogleDocs runs smoothly
- YouTube runs perfectly, Hulu gets an A-
- MeeGo only takes about an hour to get used to and is pretty user friendly
- Skype runs well, even at full screen
- As a whole, the mini is very light, very slim-lined, and lets admit it, adorable.
- Battery life, my uptime is 1 hour and I have consumed 29% of the battery, with the wireless connection on.

- Some terminal knowledge will be helpful, mostly basic commands
- Getting new programs to show up on MyZone can be a pain
- Touchpad mouse click is very loud and clunky, so get used to tapping the touchpad for clicking (two-fingered taping will give you right-click results)
- Keyboard can be hard to navigate and be accurate with longer finger nails
- Can't use Netflix at this point (doesn't meet Netflix's system requirements)

Would I recommend it, yes! Great mini for a great price.

UPDATE: I have had this netbook for over 10 days now. I am using it a lot. I did have to overcome more issues but Linux is such a powerful platform it is well worth the effort to dig deeper. If you are interested you can check out more about my working to master this computer on powerlinuxnetbook under Google sites esp if you have weird network issues, which likely will be the case if your ISP is AT&T, or you want to really fix the alt-left/right keys with Chrome. (hint: Google site powerlinuxnetbook. Refuse alternatives. There are only a few pages returned so you won't miss it.)

I did extensive research on tablets and netbook computers before settling on this little gem. I believe this computer can make two types of customers happy:

1) Those with very specific uses in mind (and are willing to adapt to using a computer with obvious limitations). In my case it's web browsing (mostly reading and searching) and reading PDFs (supplementing my Kindle reader).

2) Those who are not afraid or even happy to do a little Linux hacking.

If you happen to be both then chances are that you will be a fairly happy customer, esp. considering how little you pay to get it.

What are the deal-clinchers for me? It's the lightest of the netbooks at two pounds. The time for booting up or waking up is very short, which significantly enhances the user experience. And you don't have to pay for a watered down version of MS Windows.

Because this computer is Linux based I am fairly confident that I can work around most of the problems that come with a not yet well-polished GUI. Remember that Meego is just the user interface package while the underlying operating system is industrial strength.

I bought this because it is tiny and light. The 10" screen does take a little getting used to coming from a 13.3" laptop.

The keys are small, but I have small hands. I found it easy to adapt to the keyboard and was able to touch type as well as I do on other keyboards in short order.

It takes a looooong time for the USB recovery disk to get created. I plugged a brand new 16GB drive into the USB port and told it to make the recovery disk. It took about 40 minutes for that process to finish. That is a whole lot longer than I expected it to take. There is no status indicator to tell you how much progress is being made which leads you to wonder how it is going.

The interface takes a little getting used to with its "zones". But it was easy enough to set up the wireless internet connection. I use Chrome already so the browser was no problem to adapt to. The Facebook and Twitter page that is on the main page is kind of silly. It is basically the same as the mobile FB feed. I find it much less useful to look at than the regular FB experience. I wish there was a way to get rid of the Twitter thing because I don't use it.

I got a 16GB microSD card for a little bit of added storage because it was fairly cheap. But I am not sure how much space I will really need. I do travel a good deal to parts of the world without reliable internet connections though so it will be nice to be able to write basic docs offline.

I am quite pleased to see that there is a basic photo viewer and editor built-in. That was something I was wondering about. I shoot a lot of pictures when I travel. A quick test showed that it was easy to move files from an SD card reader to my portable Iomega HDD through the netbook to back them up.
