MUCH better than other reviews claim
 
First off, this is the best value of a netbook you'll find. The AMD Fusion e-350 is definitely the best CPU/GPU combo you'll find in a netbook, especially at this price. The e-350 is a dual-core 64-bit CPU that runs at 1.6 GHz (it's 60% faster than the AMD c-50 you find in the top-selling Acer netbook). This is the usual frequency of the Atom processors, but the e-350's clocks are more efficient, making it more equivalent to an low-voltage Core 2 Duo. I tested out the CPU/APU by playing a bl...

Should be recalled
 
I dont normally review anything but this was an exceptionally awful experience. Thank god amazon takes excellent care of their clients as asus's quality control is sub par. Ive ordered 3 of these now. Not because I wanted 3, but because each had problems that a new CPU should not have.Each had a trackpad that didnt work consistantly. I cant believe that asus allowed these to leave their factory. I have bought asus cpu's before without incident and hoped when I had trouble with t...

Worst mouse ever!
 
The mouse, and pad are almost un-usable!It seems that the processor can't keep up with your finger sliding across the pad.....I picked up this computer for my girlfriend and was expecting that the unit would in some way resemble a Mac in build quality. I was told that ASUS was the same company which assembled most of the macbook computers. What a disappointment!This is a cheap, 12" version of a 10" net-book......and the scroll pad, and the click keys are virtually worthl...

Overall a Great Netbook... May Have Touch-Pad Issues.
 
I shopped for 2 years for a netbook and finally decided on this one. I replaced the hard drive with a 64GB solid state drive. After about a week, the touch-pad stopped working. I determined the issue was hardware related. According to a quick Google search, this model is prone to touch-pad issues. I opened up the unit and used tape to keep the touch-pad out of contact with other metal inside the unit. I have had no trouble with the touch-pad since.I thoroughly enjoy this netboo...

Great little laptop!
 
This is my second ASUS laptop. My first ASUS laptop was a Linux netbook. I still have it and use it when I'm travelling. Now I have this ASUS Windows 7 laptop and love it too! It boots up fast and has a nice keyboard layout. The only thing I would improve upon is the mouse "keys." The single metal "key' at the bottom of the touchpad doesn't seem to stay clean. Oils from my fingers leave lots of finger prints. That's th eonly downsize I've sound so far. The video camera is great for Skyp...

Best 12" Fusion laptop.. SLOOOOWWWWWW...Shipment!!!!!
 
UPDATE: I lowered to 2 stars just because the delivery was slow and delayed due to "External Factor"...what the hell??? Unacceptable!!! UPS better not make me wait "at the end of day" like they always do.This is going to be my second buy for this 1215b model. The red model I bought for myself for $299 is sold out. This silver one is for my friend. I'm happy with the red model I've been using. It's not the thinnest or the most handsome notebook, but very practical. For it's pric...

good for the price
 
Pros: good price, good speakers, decent keyboard (other than a small issue. see cons) pretty fast as for a netbook, not heavy, USB 3.0, HDMICons: the same trackpad issues as other people reported (looks like it's fixable), Backspace button had a small piece of plastic underneath it so the button did not go all the way down. I've removed it with a sewing needle.Does not do system backup on DVD. Requires external DEDICATED(!) USB drive with at least 16 GB capacity for system backup. I...

It has been almost 3 weeks now and still waitng for it to be fixed they say it may take another week but at this point I am pretty much giving up on this computer as it seems to ...

Hardware Issues/Bloatware
 
Since day one the track pad on this hasn't worked... It will work great for a few minutes and then will stop moving up and down and will just start randomly not move the cursor at all. I thought this may be a driver issue or a software related with all the bloatware, but I installed Ubuntu on it and the exact same problem occur there. It works great for a few minutes and then just stops working. Contacted ASUS support and they were not helpful in the least. On top of all that the computer has mo...
