Asus EEPC 901 Netbook with Linux Review

I wanted a small PC that would fit in my purse and would power up fast. I didn't need a full blown computer. I just wanted something that I could carry with me and check e-mail and maybe work on a story.

I found the Asus EEPC 901 Netbook with Linux installed.

It had to fit in my purse.

The Asus EEPC 901 Netbook fits great. At 6.9 x 8.9 and less than an inch thick, it fits in my purse with lots of room to spare.

But, even though it is small, it has plenty of power. With 20 GB internal memory and 1 GB RAM, it's got enough memory to keep me going. It has built in Wi-Fi so I don't need to carry anything extra. Three built-in USB ports allows me to connect peripherals if I want.

It had to power up fast.

Since it doesn't have to load the Windows Operating System, it takes mere seconds to power up and be ready to surf. I love it!

It comes with Open Office installed which works well with Windows Office (.doc) files.

Battery Life

My battery life isn't as long as I'd hoped for. The manufacturer claims seven hour battery life. Mine is about four hours. But I can live with that.

Getting used to the small keyboard wasn't a problem, but I do have a small issue with the spacebar. Sometimes it doesn't register that I've hit the spacebar and I need to go back and insert spaces between words.

Bottom Line:

I love it! I purchased it so that I could carry it in my purse and quickly check e-mail whenever/wherever. It has proven to be exactly what I was looking for.

An added bonus is that it is powerful enough that I occasionally power it up while I am watching TV to "check something real quick". No waiting for Windows to load. Not quite "Instant On" - but close.

Find the ASUS Eee PC 901 8.9-Inch Netbook (1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 20 GB Solid State Drive, 20 GB Eee Storage, Linux, 6 Cell Battery) Pearl White on Amazon.com
