Single Review, online available, Very Long, Date: Power efficient single core CPU with a very low performance. The high resolution inch display, larger keyboard, and easily overclocked processor make this little laptop a compelling option if you’re looking for a cheap travel companion. Rather than the typical smooth inset pad we are used to, Asus kept the touchpad flush with the wrist rest, using only a series of tiny raised bumps to differentiate the two.
The keys on this netbook keyboard are still slightly smaller than the keys on an average notebook and the spacing between the keys is a little cramped. Asus hits nearly all the marks in the HA, the latest version of its iconic Eee PC, highlighted by a 6-plus hour battery.
The touch pad is perfectly usable, but the texture on it–made up of tiny raised bumps–isn’t everyone’s favorite, although it gives good tactile feedback as you move across the touch-pad surface.
