I wanted a very light laptop with long autonomy. Performance was not my priority to take notes in class in go on the web. So for the price I am very satisfied with my EEEpc 1011PX. It so small and light you don't feel it on you bag and I can use my laptop last 8 hours on battery with Linux Ubuntu. The keyboard is really better than my girlfriend's Acer Aspire One and the build quality is far better too.

But yes, this computer is slow, forget multitasking or gaming. The screen is small as it poor resolution. You can't upgrade the memory and the access to hard drive is very difficult.

If you can live with it you have a cheap laptop to do basic works with great autonomy or if you can afford it just buy an ultrabook.

Exactly what you need from a netbook March 3 2012
By breezeylee - Published on
If you're in the market for a netbook, then you already know what you're NOT getting: don't expect a disc drive, high gaming capabilities, or a significant amount of memory. I didn't add multitasking to the list, because to my surprise this little PC can handle quite a bit more than I expected-- I often have open multiple word documents, multiple adobe documents, dozens of internet tabs, and both spotify and skype running in the background. And the storage capacity was much more than I expected to get out of such a tiny pc. These were all just added bonuses-- the real reason I purchased it was for it's portability-- I literally walk around with it in my purse and don't even notice it-- and the brand, of course-- I will never buy a computer that isn't an Asus. So if you're in the market for something light, compact, and relatively simple-- this will definitely suit your needs.

Not as advertized April 15 2012

The first problem I noticed with this unit is you can't upgrade the memory. Amazon gave me a 25% discount (I could have returned the unit).

The next problem is a little more serious if you are expecting 10 hrs battery life, as Asus claims.

Initially I didn't see to be getting anything close to the 10 hrs so I sent the battery back to Asus, thinking I'd got a bad one. When I got the new one back things did not seem to have improved.

So I did a test: With the display turned to minimum and the wi-fi turned on, I edited a document in Word. Some of the time I just left the machine alone. I got less than 5 hrs before the machine shut down.

When I contacted Asus they said this was 'normal'. I wrote back suggesting that this was anything but. They have not replied.

Gave an error as soon as I turned it on! April 17 2012

I took the computer out of the box, turned it on and immediately showed an error. Called Asus customer support and it was so bad that even the representative said to return it as there was no way they could help me get it fixed. I'm returning back the computer tomorrow and requesting the refund.

I'm going to start with the Cons, because I like a happy ending...

Cons: The 1011PX ships with Windows 7 Starter and 1Gb of RAM. So the natural thought is "I'll buy a second stick of RAM and up it to 2Gb running in Dual Channel Mode." WRONG! ASUS has created a Quad-Core mini-laptop with 1Gb hardwired to the motherboard and NO EXPANSION SLOT. There is a door for it, but when you open it up, there is no slot to put your second RAM into. This is an unspeakable offense in the world of laptoppery. Windows 7 needs 2Gb minimum to run smoothly, everyone knows this, but in their efforts to extend the battery life to ten hours, ASUS decided to reduce the power needs of the memory PERMANENTLY. There was some chatter about Microsoft only allowing Win7 Starter to ship on 1Gb units but that's BS. I sent a raving email off to ASUS suggesting that the Design people immediately do the right thing and commit group suicide... Then I got to thinking...

WHY is 2Gb so important? Well, because of the amount of paging the Operating System does, and a standard rotational drive simply cannot provide the throughput to keep up with demand. Even a 15K Raptor couldn't give you enough speed to compensate for the lack of ready memory, not to mention the power consumption and heat... but a Solid State Drive can. Of course, this unit ships with an oversized Western Digital disk to distract from the fact that you can't play an HD video without stutter due to the paging load; you can store a hundred of them, but you can't watch them.

Pro's: This unit is literally held together by plastic snaps around the edge. Undo the four screws under the battery and you can just yank the keyboard right off (being careful of the connectors of course). Then unscrew the touchpad plate (end of warranty) and there it is. The drive is a standard 2.5" so it is REAL easy to pull out the rotational disk and slap a lil SSD right in there. Now the paging delay goes away because an SSD is driven by the CPU and is almost as fast as RAM anyway! So I am writing this review on a 1011PX with no warranty but using a Vertex II 64Gb SSD, making good use of the Quad-Core and acting like a very snappy little laptop indeed. Battery time has been dropped to about eight hours because of the increased CPU load, and so what?

These units are getting returned by disgruntled buyers by the thousands, so there was never a better time to pick up a cheap, barely touched mini and make it sing. ASUS dropped the ball on this design, but left a window just big enough for a competent tech to pick it up and go yard for a huge win.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the extra RAM stick I bought. I might just mail it to the ASUS design team :)
Insanely slow Aug. 14 2012

The hard drive is constantly scratching, even with just a light browser such as Opera or Chrome.
Takes ages to shut down, really ages.
Tons of useless services at startup.
Seriously considering upgrading from 7 to XP.
Battery autonomy is ridiculous: 3 hours max. with screen at min and just a browser.
Multi touch is not responsive at all: two fingers for scroll triggers after a while and then goes too far; zoom with two fingers not suported.

The keyboard is not too bad, but a little cramped.

Try another machine.
