This Asus Eee 1018P-PU27 is an amazing 10.1" netbook. As a grad student in global health, I use this Asus 1018P for class notes. As a journalist I use it for interview notes, and for viewing short news videos. On-the-go internet browsing is a breeze.

This netbook is pre-loaded with Windows 7 Starter and Microsoft Office Starter, which I immediately and easily upgraded to Windows 7 Professional and Microsoft Office Professional. Spend the $24 and upgrade to 2 GB RAM memory (it comes with 1 GB.) This Asus model is significantly faster than others with its N550 dual-core processor; the two USB 3.0 ports and Bluetooth 3.0 add to its speed and efficiency, not to mention the optimized 10 hours of battery life. I get 8, good enough.

Consumer Reports rates the Asus #1 for 10" netbooks (Amazon offers a newer model, which I purchased). At this writing the Asus 1018P has received 18 international awards. I spent considerable time researching and testing netbooks of all kinds, brands, and processors. The most annoying problem was too-touchy touchpads, with cursors jumping around the screen. No problem, so far, with this Asus model. BTW, I also bought the magenta neoprene sleeve to protect and carry the Asus. Looks cool.

I'll be traveling and will need a reliable machine that can slip into my purse. The Asus 1018P-PU27 fits--not only in my purse--but also fits the bill.

I purchased this netbook for my everyday use. (I carry it everywhere) I spent hours and hours reading thousands of reviews, specs, etc and finaly decided to go with Asus 1018p.

The things that made me hesitate are:

1. 1018p does not have HDMI output. There were some models with new motherboard that are capable of faster graphic processing. They claim that it can be used to play some graphic intense games. But my main use was not for video paying or gaming. I have my other computer for that and netbook has only 10 inch screen! All I needed was 420 resolution.

2. No dedicated media control. My old Dell notebook has dedicated play, stop, next, prev botton and it is so convinient to have them. Lets say you are writing someting using Words or just browsing internet while your music is playing and you want to change music. If you don't have dedicated media button then you have to find right media screen and change music then go back to the page you were working on. I went to Fry's electronics and checked all the netbooks available and I found out that only netbook with dedicate media control is Fujitsu. No Dell, No Sony, No Asus... So I gave up on this. I am glad I did because I usually have to see the music list before I change to next song. With shortcut keys it is not that difficult. (I still wish I had dedicated buttons though..)

3. ONlY 1 Gig of RAM medory. I tested few netbooks with 1 gig memory and oh boy... you need patience. Some people say they are ok with that but it takes 20~30 seconds to load a program... come on... So I ordered Crucial 2GB 204 pin DDR3 memory from Amazon for $24 and I think that was the best $24 I have ever spent. Changing RAM is so easy, no tools required.

This is a very nice netbook! First the good:
Fastest and thinnest netbook I've used. It can multitask quite well. Videos play very smoothly, boots up very quickly. I use it for programming on the go and it can handle big IDEs and large office programs like netbeans and openoffice without ever hanging. I'm glad to have usb3.0, it is extremely fast and great for copying large files from here to my desktop. Haven't had the opportunity to take advantage of the wireless N or bluetooth 3.0, but I'm sure they are fast as well. I love that I get 8 hours of battery life yet the battery doesn't stick out of the bottom like most other netbooks. It is so light and thin, I barely notice it in my backpack. I can type just as easily on this laptop than any 15 inch model (as long as I don't need a 10-key). The screen looks great, I would certainly categorise it as a matte screen. I only booted into Windows twice before I wiped the hard drive and installed linux, but there didn't seem to be much bloatware on the original install. The extra asus programs that were added seemed like they would be useful to a windows power user. It includes fast access to the asus cloud storage and a few other neat utilities. The netbook seems very solid, I think it is really built to last.

The bad:
The buttons on the touch pad are very very stiff. You have to press surprisingly hard, but this will probably get easier with just a little bit of use. I had planned to dual boot and leave the windows installation, but it had partitioned the hard drive very stupidly. It creates two 100 GB partitions and wastes the other 50 GB on a boot partition and for the instant access. It boots a full installation of Ubuntu in less than 35 seconds, how more instant do you need?

Than all of the other netbooks I have ever used. Got the white version from amazon and it arrived today. I really like this netbook because of the processor. It has more cache than many other netbooks at 1 mb of L2. I am extremely impressed at the graphics capabilities. I know a lot of reviews online say that the video cards are not up to par. This is true if you want to watch 1080p videos on YouTube. But on such a small screen 1080p is truly unnecessary. It runs 720p perfectly. At one point in time today I was running as well as a YouTube video in 720p. I did this is super performance mode as well as power saving mode and it was the same quality.

Only bad thing about the computer is the fact that there were a few things on amazon that they messed up in the description. The computer I revived did NOT have a matte screen. It is a glossy one so glare is an issue for someone doing outside computing. The next thing is that the computer says 8hrs of battery life amazon says 10hrs.

Other than that it looks like it will be a promising netbook. I am a college student and I really am happy with this purchase. I will use it every day.

Also the design is amazing. The keys are just like on a macbook pro except the fact that they do not light up. Also it is one of the first computers shipping with USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0. These are extremely fast and I can't wait to get to use them.

I hope this helps you decide that this netbook is quite amazing.
