Asus EEE PC 4G review

just bought this oh so cute laptop last week.
it's pre-installed OS is Linux (i think it's customized by Asus) which is very user-friendly. it has 7 tabs (internet, work, play, learn, settings, favorites, and help) on the upper side so it is very easy to navigate. if you want to surf the net, just click the internet tab then web. it comes with a built-in Mozilla Firefox browser, Pidgin (messenger for yahoo, google talk, aim, msn, etc.), Skype, OpenOffice.Org (similar with MS Office), Dictionary, Webcam, Games, and so much more. if you want a notebook just for internet surfing, chat with your friends through IM, word, excel, and powerpoint (office) viewer and maker, play games, listen to music, watch movies/shows, and does not costs too much, well this Asus EEE PC is for you. it supports many formats such as DivX, WMV, etc. Screen--good (but not great) quality. Pictures taken from it's integrated 0.3 MP webcam are vivid though it has only low resolution (lower than VGA). It turns on and shuts down quickly unlike other laptops/PCs. you can also run Windows XP in Asus EEE PC but you'll need an external optical drive to install it because it does not have an integrated one. there's always a bad side in everything, Asus EEE PC has only a 4GB SSD, too little capacity. 512MB memory but upgradeable up to 2GB. so you should always have an SD/MMC card, USB flash drive, or an external hard drive for you to enjoy this laptop. good thing it has 3 USB ports, an SD/MMC card reader, an ethernet port, and a built-in WiFi. Asus said that EEE PC's battery can lasts up to 3.5 to 4 hours, but mine only lasted for 2.5 hours. i'm not yet sure maybe i can have my battery replaced. other reviews said their EEE PC works 3 to 3.5 hours.

overall, i rate this product 8.5/10
