I wish everything that I bought gave me this much value for the cost. This device is very light still pretty darn tough. It’s suited for kids or students, for travel and anybody looking for a small device that runs Windows and the well-matched software. There are generally trade-offs between performance, price, and weight etc. And this is no exemption, however there’s a good balance here. In my restricted use so far it runs pretty snappy. I haven’t done anything intensive with it still, however for web-browsing, word processing, media streaming, etc. I haven’t detected any sluggishness. I wasn’t used to the chiclet keyboard at 1st, however it didn’t take long to get comfy with it. The device features a technology called, & 8220;connected standby& 8221; that you may use to swiftly resume your machine in about 2 seconds from its standby time. When the battery shows less than 5, it can backup data automatically so you will not lose it. Integrated GPU for tablets and notebooks, so clearly this isn’t for any kind of heavy responsibility gaming. Only basic games and some 3D games with low demands are playable with the types of laptops. With it is included one year subscription to Office 365 Personal and 1 TB of cloud storage, this must be the best Windows notebook deal in this $200 price range. I do not know how they can make a profit on these. Note: Some reviewers recently said that theirs didn’t come with Office 365. If you purchase this laptop you’re ENTITLED to it since it’s a part of the listed features. If you don’t get it, then the seller MUST accept a return and give you a full REFUND. Amazon generally protects their customers in my experience.
MINE didn’t COME WITH MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 claim/key (UPDATE: BUT you may be able to GET IT HERE http://www. Service. Asus. Com/ Asus-x205/c21g1 ) This was my experience with Office: When I tried to install Microsoft 365 from the asus app part from the tiles on the start screen, the program told me that ‘no office claim found on device’ so I referenced help page from microsoft –> http://support. Microsoft. Com/kb/2987490. I then contacted the maker and after going around with some people, one useful person provided me with the link so I filled it out with my information and I should be to get my office key soon. This little netbook is small, fan-less, light, and lasts about 12 hours, and takes a micro sd card without sticking out of the side and it runs office and windows. From the many reviews I have read about this system the RAM and eMMC memory is soldered on, so it can not be upgraded that way, I have still to verify this. Windows 8. 1 looks to run quite well and makes me really like how it performs on this tiny little machine. Using the tiles on the start screen is a delight, it’s easy to move up, down, and right and left with two fingers across the track-pad. If you have 8. 1 already you may be able to have everything linked from your other system, your tiles, your wallpaper etc. The specifications seem to be 2 gb ram / 32 gb emmc (hd)/ 100 GB (edit) onedrive storage/ 500 gb asus cloud storage. The cloud storage has a set expiration with alternatives to renew. The best part of this machine is that the battery outlasts just about everything, 12 hours is amazing Just be cautious with the propriety charger, now you can not seem to find them without going through the warranty.
Edit June 2015: Still loving it. Best thing is the small size. Worse thing is the proprietary power jack. One time I could not find the power plug and thought I could have to purchase another one before being able to use this again. —————————————-The two extremes of laptops are big ones which gives the closest experience to a desktop or small ones which is intended for portability. I have owned many laptops over the years as well as small ones but this is the smallest one I have owned. This is not just small in size, it is thin also. In size it nearly feels like an iPad, however heavier. I am not especially fond of the finish, which seems it may be scratched easily. Separately from that, with its rounded edges, color and futuristic look, it is quite beautiful. It has two USB2. 0 ports, a mini-HDMI port, sound, flash card slot and power socket. It uses a power plug that I am not familiar with and wish it had a more regular plug that could be interchangeable. USB is only 2. 0. Why mini-HDMI? I do not own this and will have to get one. But at least the minimum prerequisites for slots are there. I can generally get hubs if I need more slots. On powering on, the light that tells you the laptop is on is on the bottom of the front and hard to see. On occasion it takes a while to power on or I do not know if I pressed the small flat power button so I have to wait or press the power button twice, accidentally turning it off. But after the initial set up, it turns on and off much faster than my other laptops. The keyboard is nice and I like the buttons. The touchpad is responsive, however I favor a mouse when possible. The sound is nothing to write home about but may be projected from small laptops.
