This review is from: ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM-PU17-BU 10.1-Inch Netbook (Blue) (Personal Computers)I just got my 1015PEM on Friday. I created a USB install of Ubuntu and installed a 2GB DDR3 stick of RAM I had.
I'm running the latest Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 64 bit beta, and it's fantastic! Everything works buttery smooth and is working right off (for those of you also using Ubuntu/Linux, the wireless drivers use the Broadcom STA drivers, just install via ethernet connection at first)
The keys and palmrests of smooth, not shiny, and extra comfortable to type on. I transitioned from a full-sized Mac keyboard to this little guy and had no problems adjusting.
The speakers are LOUD at full volume, for such a little thing. Far outshine my Acer 3810t with 'Dolby Experience'.
The power supply is superbly small.
I've been able to watch hulu, etc, just fine.
Last but not least, youtube 720p flash is a little jittery, but some updates in the future may fix this (this is after all, linux. Flash runs MUCH faster in... Read more

This review is from: ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers)I've been in the market for a netbook, decided to bite the bullet when these became available with the N550 dual core processor. This is my first netbook and only experience with one, so take my review for what it's worth. Had it a few days before I upgraded to 2gb (no questions asked, absolute must) and immediately upgraded the BIOS after setup and running.
Nice little compact size. Relatively thin and not too heavy. The black matte has a rather odd hue, it seems almost having a blueish tint, which I thought was rather peculiar. It attracts finger prints more than I thought it would, maybe not as much as a gloss finish, but they do show up.
Screen seems alright, didn't notice any dead pixels. There is some bloatware, but not an excessive amount. I removed the majority of it including most of the asus add-ons. The key board takes a little getting used to as I'm accustom to a full size standard board and this lay out has a few different things about... Read more

This review is from: ASUS Eee PC 1015PEM-PU17-BK 10.1-Inch Netbook (Black) (Personal Computers)I'm guessing I fell within a small percentage of buyers, and happened to have a bad luck streak with this netbook. All the reviews were very great, but my experience was not.
The first netbook I ordered, upon opening, the entire keyboard panel (the panel that attaches to the base of the netbook) was dislocated from the base. Luckily it just snapped in place, so I dismissed it as a rather small deal. After using the netbook for a half hour or so, I realized that the left mouse clicker on the netbook had to be clicked really hard, or clicked in the very center of the button in order to work. I figured I had a defect, so I sent it in, hoping for a better replacement.
I was happy to see that the clicker for the left mouse function was working on this one. Also, the keyboard panel was properly attached to the base, so no "snapping" required. Everything seemed perfect with this model and I was happy. However... When I started... Read more
