"Great 10" Netbook...battery is okay."4.5 starson by harleyy2
160GB Hard Drive
Cons: 1GB RAM (easily upgradable)
The Windows XP Home Edition that Asus loads makes machine run slower
Summary: I bought this Netbook at Best Buy. I had the Asus EEE PC 900 Netbook with the 16GB SSD and 1GB RAM and it was just way too slow...so Best Buy was very nice and exchanged it for the Asus EEE PC 1005HAB.
I like the keyboard, mouse and performance on it. I did upgrade the RAM from 1GB to 2GB and threw on a brand new Windows XP Professional install on it because the Win XP Home Edition Asus put on it was just slow. After the 2GB RAM upgrade this machine runs much better and pretty smooth! I threw Microsoft Office 2007 Professional on it for work and it definitely hits the spot! The battery is okay...nothing good and nothing to complain about...roughly runs 2-4 hours. It has definitely decreased since I first got it a few years ago. It has been running slow lately so I may throw on a new Windows XP Professional install soon...I won't put Windows 7 or Windows 8 on it because Windows XP runs much smoother on it.
Overall great 10" Netbook! I would just recommend installing a clean Windows install on it so it runs faster and upgrade to 2GB RAM.
