The computer really is small. It easily fits in a medium size purse, and is very light weight.
The battery lasted well, although I haven't put the battery life to the test. It charged up quickly. The wireless worked great.
All the programs I tried worked well, and seemed to run as fast as they do on a regular computer. I downloaded some free photo-editing software (from Google), and was able to do some preliminary editing of vacation photos while traveling. I also downloaded "Open Office" so I could use it to compose a letter or a note, and Google Chrome for web browsing. (And I downloaded Angry Birds on Chrome.) I haven't used it extensively - just while traveling, but all the programs I mentioned worked just fine for me.
The keys are well marked, and there are some "FN" shortcuts for volume, brightness, etc that are easy to find.
Also, apparently some netbooks are very shiny and hold fingerprints - this one is a matte surface (I got the red, which is more of a brick color) and it stays clean looking.
I didn't do any "customization" - no changing the operating system, changing the memory, anything like that. For my purposes, it worked great right out of the box.
Cons (such as they are):
There are really no cons that I can think of. Keep in mind, I would *not* use this as my primary computer, but frankly I don't think that's what it was intended for.Read more ›
We have used this unit to watch movies off the hard drive on plane flights and in hotels (using head phones) and found it to be very nice for travel (or typing from bed as I am using it right now).
In practical terms; battery life is from 4-6 hours (5 is decent average) running Ubuntu as the OS.
The newer Ubuntu 11.10 runs like a champ on it, so Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04 and 11.10 all work without needing any drivers.
Lastly, the memory upgrade to 2 gigs was not really necessary for a Linux distro; the orignal 1 gig would have been fine. I can run 4 or 5 applications and still use only 350 megs of RAM.
*** End of update; you will now be returned to the original review ***
Let me begin by saying the Windows 7 that comes with the system by default worked better that I expected (Slow, but it did work); but I bought this as a Linux portable small enough to haul to meetings and carry with me without lugging my massive laptop.
The 1015PX was approved by Asus to run Ubuntu 10.10; they had planned to offer it for sale that way, but that seems to not have happened.
I loaded the more recent Ubuntu 11.04, and everything works without loading a single additional driver. I am expecting the Ubuntu 11.10 release will run just as well (I have a test install of it running on another box).
I will let you know that Ubuntu 10.04.03 LTS (Long Term Support) did not support the trackpad off the live CD, so plan to install 10.10, 11.04 or 11.10 if you are Ubuntu inclined.
Reviews of this netbook on other sites mention it runs the current Fedora fine, but I have not tested that myself.Read more ›
