I've had about a week to play and work with my new ASUS Meego X101 and I must say that I am quite impressed with it's quality for costing only $200.

Right off the bat, I want to point out that I threw out the built-in Linux Meego operating system in favor of Ubuntu 11.10. Meego is a great, user-friendly OS for those who are not familiar with Linux; however, for those who want more, I can confirm that Ubuntu operates smoother than ever on the X101. Both OS' come with pre-installed full versions of office, mail, and entertainment software that are fully compatible with a Windows and Mac machine. I've heard you can run Windows 7 on this netbook as well but why would you want to go and do that?

The most amazing feature of the X101 is its size and design. It's roughly the same size and thickness as a Macbook Air with a textured outside that resists smudges and fingerprints. The battery pack is easily replaceable as well as being small and unobstructive. Not everything is perfect about the design, though. The X101 loses a star for its keyboard and mouse which are not ergonomical to say the least. The keys have to be small; I understand that. But the layout of the keys cause you to frequently mistype, especially considering the Back Space and Delete keys are small and virtually next to one another. Furthermore, the mouse buttons are not really buttons at all. They are built into the touchpad, meaning you often have to guess whether or not you're clicking or accidentally making a touch gesture. Nonetheless, these blemishes are not deal-breakers, they simply require some getting used to.

As far as performance is concerned, the X101 continues to impress me. It comes equipped with the latest Intel Atom micro-processor.

I picked up one of these at a brick and mortar store. I had ecently handled a friend's Macbook Air and was exceedingly jealous of its size and weight. So for 6 times less the cost of a Macbook Air I got exactly what I wanted: A thin netbook that is light as a feather. But to cost 6 times less, some compromises must be made. The disk size is 8 GB, which is big enough to hold your operating system and some documents. It is solid state though and you can upgrade via any mini PCIe SSD. 32GB disks go for about $90 as of this writing. I keep a 16 GB MicoSD card in the MicoSD slot that holds my music and movies. The OS is Meego, which is a Linux system recently abandoned by Intel and Nokia. It has a little app marketplace, but I didn't explore it for more than a few minutes. I uninstalled Meego and replaced it with openSUSE 11.4 which not only runs faster, but gets better battery life. Linux Mint 11 was also tried with great success. The CPU is the Intel Atom N435, which is a budget CPU, even for netbooks. It is single core, dual threaded, with a clock speed of 1.00 to 1.33 GHz. It won't break any speed records, and high def movies on the web will likely studder. However, standard definition movies play just fine. The display is bright and crisp. It has a matte finish which makes it better for using outside as compared to glossy screens. The sound is delivered through a single speaker on the bottom. The speaker isn't too quiet, but the placement on the bottom muffles the sound somewhat. The laptop itself feels somewhat cheap and plasticy. However unlike the Macbook Air, the case won't dig into your hands. The keyboard feels cheap and is laid out funny. Gone are the F1 to F12 keys at the to row. They are now function keys which are accessed by holding down the Fn key.Read more ›

I purchased this little computer for my travels. I'm a frequent traveler, and I wanted something that could play videos and surf the Internet. I also wanted it to be *light*- I travel with only one carry-on-sized backpack, so any additional weight goes straight on my back. Given these requirements, the X101 comes through beautifully. It is thinner than many magazines, just wide enough to accommodate the USB port (although a bit bulgier at the battery), and unimaginably light. The (8GB) solid-state hard drive ensures that the OS won't be borked by being jostled around, which is important when you're tossing your bag on and off public transport, or riding re-purposed school buses around Belize and Guatemala (which is what my summer should look like.)

I want to make clear that there are a few caveats here. First, the click buttons (really, sections of the touchpad) are loud and take significant force. Get used to tapping the touchpad, and I find it's often easier to use the context menu key for right-clicks. Second, the keyboard will take a little getting used to. It's laid out slightly differently, and it seems to take a bit more force on a keypress than my usual laptop. I've gotten used to it over the course of the last several days, however, and can now manage nearly full typing speed on it (although I wouldn't want to use it for extensive data entry). Third, I have no experience with the included MeeGo OS. I wiped it in favor of XUbuntu, which runs quite snappily on the device. It's quite easy to do, and I recommend it. All you'll need is a blank USB drive, or USB CD drive. Every piece of hardware works 100% out of the box with Linux, so geeks like myself can rejoice.

The matte finish is a nice touch.
