The 320 GB HDD is partitioned into two partitions. One 99.9GB and the other 183GB. Not really sure why they did that but not really a negative.
The Netbook also comes with a TON of bloatware. Tons of ASUS apps such as a top dock, a special media sharing app, a BIOS updater, E-CAM (adding effects to the webcam) and a trial of TrendMicro AntiVirus. There might of been more that I forgot because I uninstalled most of them as soon as the device booted up.
Interestingly it also has a built in OS that you can quickly boot into by pushing the button next to the WiFi button. Good for quickly checking something on the internet.
The Netbook as a whole is very solid. The Keyboard is a little cramped but not bad seeing as it is a 11" screen. The backlight is very bright and crisp. The tracpad is a little over sensitive out of the box for my liking and the uni-button on the tracpad takes time getting used to.
The webcam is the usual low quality webcam but has a physical switch that blocks the camera and also a digital zoom button along with a on light for the paranoid.
Under the tracpad there is a on light, charging light, HDD light, WiFi light, and a caps lock light.
It has a app for sending media over WiFi to other devices but I don't have a device that supports it to test it out on.
Good - Excelent battery life (5+ hours of actual use), Decent keyboard, great performance for the price, built in operating system
Bad - Amount of bloatware
Weird - Partitioning of HDD.
I will update this review is anything breaks or goes wrong.
The Good: I love this little netbook, far more capable than a tablet, long battery life and portability are just a few of the upsides. Built in SD reader, VGA and HDMI connector, you can pretty much do anything you need with this little machine. Thanks to the AMD APU, it will run most current games, low settings, but its better that playing minesweeper if you have time to kill. The WIFI reception is great, better then most I have had. The camera has a privacy cover, it has blue tooth and enough hard drive to chock full of movies and shows to survive a stay a the relatives. The 5.5 hour battery life is not a gimmick, you can stretch it out even longer with the brightness turned down. This is pretty much my ideal, light duty, everyday mobile computing buddy. The long cord is about double what other makers give you, they did not skimp it. The matte finish does not show fingerprints like the cool shiny toys all the TV adds have, this is a working machine.
The Bad: I never liked the tiny plug on the power adapter, always figured I would bend it. Never did but it is very slight. there is only 1 USB 2.0 plug, I figured they guessed if you needed more that you would have a hub handy. It was always a little flexible where the hinges connected to the frame, flexed too much for my liking.
The Ugly: Ram is soldered on, no chance of upgrading that. The HINGES broke! and when it did, it shoved up against the delicate card that connects the VGA, SD Card and Power button and broke the solder connection between it and the motherboard. Upon dis-assembly, the culprit is the weak hinge connection.Read more ›
