Best Netbook in the market.
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) Got it 4 days ago and I've been playing with this puppy everyday. Just make sure you update to the new flash 10.1 and also update the drivers for the Broadcom Crystal. It plays youtube HD @ 720p or 1080p without a sweat. Battery time is as advertised. I even upgraded to a Kingston V+ SSD and this thing flies. I have tried several netbooks and even the "magical" ipad, and this ...

No support from Asus
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) I got the 1005PR yesterday (10 May 1020), so it is a bit early to give a thorough review, but I felt compelled to comment on my experience so far.At the end of the Windows installation, the Asus software says configuring system, I thought it was hanging, but after about 20 minutes it eventually completed.I found the machine to be a bit slow, at least sl...

Media friendly netbook
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) This netbook has a great feature set and works well, despite a few niggling flaws.PROS: Bright, full resolution screen, great battery life, HD accelerator, bluetooth, smudge-free case, kinda decent speakers, nice touchpad, very light.CONS: Noisy keyboard, keyboard flex, takes some tweaking to get the Broadcom card to work well, bad speaker placement (un...

Great computer, probably the best netbook
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) With the latest broadcom drivers (3.3.0) and flash software:pros:- sleek and well built. Not the thinnest around but the battery is almost flush with the body (not promiscuously hanging in the back as most). - bright HD screen. You can work as you are used to on a bigger laptop, plenty of room. The fonts are not too small (also can be increa...

It's nice to have a netbook finally with lots of screen real estate
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) I just received this 1005PR yesterday morning, and after reading these reviews here, I checked in my 'Device Manager' list of this unit and confirmed that I DO have an installed Broadcom CrystalHD Video Decoder listed under 'Sound, Video, and Game Controllers' category, and my HD plays smoothly on the included Arcsoft Media Player, but does not play sound, I assume since my so...

Do not order until Broadcom Crystal HD issue is resolved!
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) I received this yesterday and I too have the problem of no Broadcom Crystal HD chip in the unit. You are getting a 50/50 chance of getting one with the chip if you were to order one now. Wait until the issue is resolved on the manufacturing end.

Nice Hi-res screen and keyboard. Touchpad a bit sticky
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) This is my first netbook. Ordered and shipped on May 12, just before Amazon put a halt on selling this machine. When received, checked to have th broadcom HD card in device manager. After upgrading to 2GB ram and updating the Adobe flash to 10.1 RC4, things work fine. I just use the stock Win 7 starter. Played around for 2 days.The good:The hi-res screen...

Excellent value!
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) I got mine yesterday (purchased from Amazon) and after some tweaking everything works fine for me. It came with THE CARD installed (not missing like some of the early reviewers) and it also came with the Broadcom driver installed. I didn't bother to update the driver. Only thing I had to do was to uninstall Adobe Flash player and reinstall with the Flash 10.1 beta....

WAIT! Yet another missing Broadcom Crystal HD decoder...
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) I went against the advice of everyone on here and ordered one of these anyway, taking a chance of a bad or missing Broadcom HD card. Windows showed it as a listed device, but it was not functioning properly (I installed flash 10 and tried updating the Broadcom drivers too.) Upon reinstalling the drivers, it could no longer find the card! Bummer.Amazon is amazing...

Not ready for release
 
This review is from: ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005PR-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers) Seems like it's hit-or-miss in getting a correctly configured 1005PR; mine was a miss. I do not know if ASUS got a bad batch of Broadcom HD cards, or simply did not install those cards in half the systems, but do not purchase this system yet until Rev 2 is released.
