Some customer reviews of Asus Eee PC 1005P (Netbook)

Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small, but with very easy to type keyboard. Looks very nice, and have had no problems with the operating system, and the software provided with the netbook lets you change the desktop background which is normally not possible on windows 7 starter. Perfect for simple internet browsing and word processing
Bad points:
When you have the screen as far back as it will go on a flat surface the netbook will lift up and balance on the midpoint between the screen and the keyboard, meaning your keyboard will be tilted and in midair. Also it isn't very good for looking at videos in full screen over the internet, as even those in normal definition are quite jerky. But you expect that sort of thing with a netbook, so that problem isnt really a big issure.

Good points:
Great piece of hardware, keyboard much improved over early eee models
Bad points:
Windows 7 starter edition is useless - can't even connect to network shared drives for backup - it is so limited it's hardly worth supplying

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, light, battery life is about 5-6 hours streaming video over a wifi network. Web browsing, playing full screen video works perfectly.
Bad points:
Playing games is a definite no no.

Performance is very slow for any CPU intensive task.
