Works like a mini desktop! Great for students, developers, and business professionals.
 
I'm an MIS (Management Information Systems) student. I needed a laptop or netbook I could take with me to the labs that was capable of decently matching the power of a desktop system and that didn't weigh 10+ pounds and break my student-sized budget. The ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1201N met and far exceeded my needs and expectations.The straight out of the box Windows Performance Rating and Information:Base Score: 3.3Processor: 3.3Memory: 4.6 (2 GB)Graphics: 4.2

A Brief Review for a Netbook that Gets the Job Done
 
I debated for about six months on what Netbook to pick up. My wife was using an Acer 8.9" 270n version with the 1024x600 res. and she loves it. I was sick of lugging around my 15.4" HP Laptop that is a powerhouse but a pain to take back and forth to work everyday. With an upcoming trip planned I had my excuse to buy a netbook and I found myself waiting and waiting for the next upgrade.My Big Concerns were Screen Resolution and Battery Life. I have learned slowly over my last 8 lapt...

Doesn't play Crysis, but it's the best netbook on the market today
 
As of the date of this review, the ASUS-1201N is the best netbook on the market today. This is my first netbook purchase, and I wanted a machine with the following characteristics;- at least 2 GB of RAM- graphics processor capable of playing 1080P media- decent battery life (willing to sacrifice battery life for performance, since I'm usually close to a wall socket)- Windows 7 Premium (offers improved battery life over Windows 7 Starter)- 11.6" to 12.1" size<...

Nice Design, Perfect Size, Just A Touch Slow
 
[Updated Aug 18, 2012]Well, I still have my 1201N and have grown to love it and rely on it regularly. I never sent it back to ASUS for repair and never upgraded the hard-drive. I have used the headphone jack several times without problem but usually listen to music on my Kindle Fire.I do run it on a laptop cooling pad with two fans as it tends to run hot. However, it does not shutdown on me anymore and has been a reliable workhorse now for two and half years.[Upd...

On my 3rd one, all defective
 
First the plus - it's a perfectly sized netbook with a very bright accurate screen. I bought it after giving up my Gateway 1435 which has an 11.6" screen. The extra 1/2" plus brighter and better screen actually makes a big difference in the readability of the screen.Now for the minuses. First of all the Atom Dual core processor is noticeably slower than the Celeron dual core in the Gateway. But the worst problem is the reliability. My first two units constantly lost their bios settings and...

Perfect balance between portability and performance
 
I am a huge gadget person and own numerous portable devices. This is my 4th laptop that I have owned and it is the perfect blend of portability and performance. All of my past laptops have been Dell Inspirons 15 inch machines that have treated me well, but I wanted something that I could carry around without the hassle of it taking up my entire travel bag. I played around with other 10.1 inch nebooks, but found them to be too small and not worth the hassle, especially since I have a Blackberr...

Powerful multimedia / gaming netbook
 
Thought a netbook could not handle the new games? Well wrong. The ASUS Eee PC 1201N is just what any avid gamer wants while traveling light. Granted the AUS Eee PC 1201N does not have the horse power to run CPU intensive apps ... but who wants that when you are on the go. Email, Web Surfing, Blogging, Tweeting, IM'ing and Video Chat are what you basically want to run in a netbook; and GAMES for those looking to frag and pwn whenever they can. A lot of folks tout about battery life. I'm gett...

Very powerful for a netbook
 
This is my first netbook, bought to replace the 10 lb monster laptop I used to carry around (including all the required peripherals). I was waiting for a certain amount of performance before I bit the bullet, having had firsthand experience with some friends netbooks, older generations with smaller screens. The performance of those left a bad taste in my mouth and I didn't want to sacrifice that much for mobility. After reading reviews and comparisons, the choice was between the HP Mini 311 a...

Asus 1201N Is A MultiMedia Powerhouse! How to Make It ROCK!
 
First things first, I disagree that the 1201N is a "netbook" straight away...it's bigger than a netbook, physically sort of anti-netbook with dimensions @ 3.22 pounds, 12.1" LED Backlit LCD Display, a battery that supports no more than 3-4 hours of constant activity of any sort; in short, this is a small laptop with a lot of positive things going on for it, but even when you change things like the 5400RPM HD to enhance its potential...it's NOT a netbook!I own two netbooks, an Acer On...

I love this netbook
 
Pros: Small form factor, Ability to play many hardware accelerated games, great wi fi, touchpad with multi touch is great, Nice keyboard for even big hands,Cons: windows 7 32 bit, glossy finish smudges easily, bloatware, and I wish the power plug was more robust though i haven't had a problem yet.Other Thoughts: I bought this unit for on the go computing and wi fi access. I also like to game. After playing with it for awhile I decides to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64, aft...
