Top Customer Reviews
UPDATE: They replaced that first unit with a Netpal that works, though it took a few weeks. My daughter is enjoying it so far (she's just had it a few days). I find it a little harder to use than my old reliable Asus; the fancier OS adds a lot of steps to everything. But I appreciate that it has age-appropriate games she can use off-line; Radio Disney, which she likes a lot; and that it has all those parental controls.
Update 7-23-11 (warranty service):
In June the Netpal's keyboard stopped working and I contacted ASUS for a warranty claim. I received no response for several days, then a rep informed me "the warranty expired in September 2010". After several e-mails stating that I had only bought the computer in August 2010 and that ASUS's website lists that the computer has a one-year warranty, I was finally issued an RMA. I sent the computer in and three weeks went by with no word from ASUS. Finally yesterday FedEx came by with the repaired Netpal. My little boy is happy and in the end ASUS did their job, but I expected a little less resistance and more communication from the service department.
