How to get Optimus working on your 1015pn
 
Great netbook, great battery life, limited OS, should come with 2GB of DDR3 installed by default.---I've noticed people are having some difficulty getting Optimus working on this netbook after installing Windows Home Premium or better, so, here's how I did it.You'll need three* files to get Optimus to work. The latest nVidia Verde drivers, the ASUS Graphics Switch utility, and the Intel Graphics driver from the ASUS 1015PEM laptop (for some crazy reason ASUS d...

Memory Upgrade
 
The Asus 1015PN is a good choice for someone looking for a small reliable netbook for email and internet access. I am writing this review so that everyone knows, and understands, not to buy the 2Gig memory upgrade recommended by Amazon. Do your self a favor and go directly to the Crucial web page, enter the manufacturer, product line and model number. Buy the memory stick that they recommend and you will not have any problems. The price is right and delivery was quick and painless. The hardest p...

Best netbook out at the moment (December 2010)
 
This netbook has the footprint of an iPad, but it is about an inch thick at the thickest point. I thought the tapered design would be a hindrance, but it actually makes the netbook easier to pack away in my backpack. You will want a case for it because it looks like it will easily pick up scratches and dents if left to tumble around in a crowded bag.As a result of the high performance features of this netbook, the battery life suffers a bit. I can easily get 6 hours when only browsin...

Good netbook but...
 
First of all, I do like this netbook. I got it for my wife and she is very happy with it. For such a small device it is rather powerful and seeing HD videos up to 1080p run (almost) flawlessly from a netbook is rather impressive.So, why only three stars? Simply put, it is too expensive. I did not even bother to switch on the computer before changing the 1GB memory module for a 2GB Crucial one (the one recommended by amazon). Fortunately that worked fine for me but I read other review...

Excellent base
 
Just got this netbook a few days ago and I must say, out of the box, it's pretty disappointing. First off, Windows 7 Starter. This computer was not meant to be used with this extremely limited os. You're definitely going to want at least Home Premium in order to get Optimus (automatic graphics switching) working. Second, only 1gb of ram. I don't think I really need to explain why this is a shortcoming.Good thing I already had my Windows 7 upgrade from my old laptop. First thing...

1015PN netbook is great!
 
It seems that a lot of people were disappointed when the specs were released to show that this netbook doesn't do 1366x768, but instead the usual 1024x600. Now really, on a 10" screen, how can anyone read text at that high of resolution anyways? Windows 7 starter is kind of a joke, but after I popped on a W7 Ultimate upgrade with the convenient instant update utility (which was really easy), things went back to how I wanted. I haven't tried 1080P video yet but high quality 720P runs great with...

Avoid this netbook and avoid ASUS
 
I shall tell you my story of disappointment and troubles in hopes of helping others: I was very excited about this netbook when I bought it, but it has been nothing but a disappointment. Although it appears to have some nice specs for a netbook the performance has not been up to par. It ships with windows 7 starter which does not allow you to utilize nvidia optimus. For those who don't know what optimus is, it is a platform by nvidia that switches between the basic integrated graphic...

Serious Video Resolution Problems
 
After turning on and booting this machine it goes into a video resolution of 1024x768 and cannot be changed while using the ION graphics controller. Since the screen is 1024x600, it cuts of the bottom of the screen hiding the windows control bar. This is completely unaccepatable in a brand new product for me, so this unit is going back.I am not going to waste my time uninstalling/installing drivers on a brand new machine when the manufacturer made production mistakes.

Can't upgrade RAM; Webdrive is useless.
 
I've purchased 2 different RAM sticks with the correct specifications, and the machine will only boot with the RAM it came with. I can't find a compatible RAM upgrade. I called technical support, and they just argued with me that I was reading the wrong serial number to them. ASUS technical support is abysmal.Also, the ASUS WebDrive is completely useless. The 500GB of Web space that comes with the machine is a gimmick. I started uploading about 22GB of music to the drive on Saturday,...

Very disappointed!!! Read on...
 
I actually read some reviews before I placed the order, and it turned out a disappointment. The 10-inch screen is a bit too small for web browsing. If you try to use google map, you will notice that immediately. May be ok for normal use. Even I upgraded to 2G ram, and installed Win7 professional, the performance is not very good. Web browsing is a bit slow, comparing to my 4 years old Dell lattitude. Video is doing a decent job, I have no problem with that. A 12-in should make me happier.<...
