So what's not to like? The computer graphics are no better or worse than those on my HP I have been using. That computer had Intel enhanced graphics & a top of the line Samsung monitor new in 2008. I expected the Asus to run circles are the old computer but they are about equal which is excellent graphics rendering.
And the Asus-with its Atom processor dual core still strains in ripping CDs. It has a nice internal speaker system-better than average but not exceptional.
So the bottom line is that this computer is aethetically pleasing but its performance is nothing special. I guess my expectations were higher than what was delivered. But the kicker was that the computer's over all performance was no better than what I already had. So the computer is fine but so is my software cluttered old computer.
UPDATE: When I reviewed this computer-I was unaware that the C Drive Partition on this computer was 40 Gig. The Data Partition was 250Gig. That is How this computer was set up by Asus at the factory. By defualt-Programs you download go to the C- Not the D partition. Who cares? If you own this computer-you will. What happens is that the C partition is way too small, and overflows. Asus Tech support stinks and they offer no remedy. You can repartition but you need to download third party software. I would NOT buy this Asus model under any circumstances. One star if I could re-rate this review.
Before I bought it I looked at the 2 reviews that were there and they are correct (thank you guys): this PC is not a super-killer beast, but it does the job fine. Beautiful screen, brights graphics, nice look (my wife who is on the Mac side was expecting a gray industrial box and was I think pleasantly surprised - and the kids as well). The price is right . It installed very easily (meaning, the kids - 9 and 7 - turned on the power, put batteries in the mouse and keyboard, and it went). It even recognised my printer without me installing drivers etc... The camera works very well, the loudspeakers and mic we attached as well. Only good surprises. ( I might have low expectations - my background is 20 years of usage of various unglorious corporate PCs and their "liberated" cousins that we bought back from our employers to use at home. So I might be easy to impress!)
Btw, it is not mentioned in the specs, but of course it comes with a wifi adapter. It also comes with Windows 7 (apparently there was debate on that at some stage).
My only grudge is that - as stated in another review - the disk partitioning is indeed insane. It goes beyond the problem of storing programs : because all the Windows users are in the C: partition, all the docs are piling in a small C: 40Gb and the D : 250 Gb partition sits unused.
Anyway, I rate it 5 stars, for less than $600 it's a good deal and here at home we all like it.
This is critical part. This model comes with a beautiful wireless keyboard and mouse. They're cute, and some say they got some kind of design award. I can agree on that. But one day they stopped working. I tried every way I can find on the web, but they never got back. I could send them back to ASUS support, but I know them. It takes more than a month to get my computer back. And they don't tell us anything about what the problem was, and what they actually fixed. I suffered it with my ASUS netbook. When it comes back from the support, it gets another problem. No, I'll never send my computer to ASUS support unless I have a real critical problem with it. So I just bought a new keyboard and mouse.
Otherwise, it's fine. Bright wide display and good performance with reasonable price. What else do you need?
No this is not a gaming pc, as one can see by looking at the basic specs this is not high performance hardware. But if solitaire and facebook games are your style then you're set.
The hard drive partition is great, maybe would of went to 60gb for the OS but if you're going to be running a windows OS then you DEFINITELY want your programs and data on a separate partition. That is if want to keep them after the inevitable crash/virus that requires the standard microsoft re-install strategy. It is very simple to install a new program to a different drive, 99% of the installs give you the option of what path to install in. and of course saving pictures, videos, and downloads to another drive is as easy as not selecting c: as your save point. I can't recommend how much you should at all cost never save anything to the c: drive (OS drive) that you want to keep.
Includes everything a standard user needs and in a nice thin package; pleasant vibrant screen, very nice built in camera, memory card reader, etc. The HDMI input is a very nice feature so the monitor can double as a TV (if you use a separate box of course, no tuner card here)
