Pros:The Asus Eee PC 1025C Flare?has amazing battery life, and is probably the least expensive Windows 7 laptop you'll find.
Cons:Just about everything else is substandard. A machine like this was acceptable a few years ago, but it just doesn't cut it in the post-iPad world.
Overveiw:Asus brought Netbooks into the world, and with the last-gasp Eee PC 1025C Flare, it looks like it's going to take them out as well.
1. Ok, it's a dirt-cheap netbook, probably one of the last netbooks that will be made. It's really inexpensive. It's quite a bit faster than I expected it to be given the Atom processor. If you take the trouble to uninstall the bloatware they preinstall on asus n45w-01, it's even fairly usable for browsing and other light tasks in windows. The downsides: you can't upgrade the 1G of ram without completely disassembling it and voiding the warranty. Fine, but they don't really make this clear. The display resolution is stupidly bad. 1024x600 is barely more than the screen resolution of my phone. 600 pixels high is not enough for anything, really - with all the menu bars and task bars and all that crap, the actual content you are looking at is in a tiny narrow band across the middle of the screen. Not a great way to read or look at web pages. The other really really annoying thing is that it doesn't have a headphone/mic jack. You CAN NOT use a headphone and mic at the same time - there is only one jack, and 90-ok02sp10000q can be EITHER headphone OR mic, it's not actually a "combo" at all. This is really dumb because it means for instance you can't use it for Skype or phone calls with a headset. It's not a bad computer for the price, but dumb design decisions and misleading advertising just give a bad impression.

2. Why bitch about an inexpensive machine with hard drive, dual boot and etc?
I use it for web surfing, you tube, watching hd movies from my Canon camera, dual boot with Ubuntu and etc. At all time with McAfee and Skype running in the background. Plus more.
I am not disappointed for the price of $299. It is much cheaper than my Ipad II and ipod touch.
3. It features high portability and excellent laptop battery life for simple activities such as web surfing. It also pulls in exceptionally strong and steady wifi signals compared to the three year old netbook it replaced. At $299, I currently have no rational reason to complain.
4. First, it couldn't upgrade ram without voiding the warranty in the net-book which was a big disappointment. Second, anyone had this net-book should try on [...] to see if it froze on you because the netbook froze everytime I went to that website. For a programmer like me, I liked to use eclipse to code but this netbook failed to do that. It'll print a run time message outofMEMORY in a very small program around 500kb. I would mark it 4 stars if it could run half of my demand but 90-xb34n0pw00000y couldn't do any basic things like coding and surfing websites with full experience. I tried to install ubuntu to see the different. It could to the verge but it wouldn't compile eclipse program (waiting around 5min to run but just stop). I won't recommend this netbook for people who want to program and try fun things with computer. Asus should change the ram location or at least keep the warranty if you want to upgrade Ram for this netbook because this is not gonna work out. I gave it 3 stars because of its design, and hoped one day it could do something more than a beauty netbook. Then I'll buy it again until then it's a no go for me.
