Some customer reviews of Asus Eee PC 1005HA SeaShell N270 (Netbook)

Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The battery life is very good for a product in this category, namely Netbooks. Used simply for word-processing and review of Word and PDF documents, it routinely lasts between 8-9 hours, occasionally 10 hours depending on activity. When used for internet browsing the battery lasts between 4-6 hours. Impressively, when used for video - BBC Iplayer - it lasted over 6 hours, enough for 3 movies during long-haul flights. Music playing has lasted thus-far over 6 hours. I have not yet tested games requiring processing power but would imagine that the graphics power would slow them down.
Bad points:
The video play is rather slow, probably due to the non-optimal graphics card which can be jarring. Running XP can be frustrating at times, particularly if you are used to Vista or Windows 7 and the laptop sometimes has some of the delays that I've encountered with XP-era computers before.

Good points:
Brilliant build quality! Amazing quick to start up and get going. Packed with usb hubs and stuff! Lovely design.
Bad points:
Gets quite hot so fan cuts in fairly regularly. Screen should go to edges really so i would recommend a bigger size screen to anyone considering one.
