Good unit, but ....
 from Sierra Madre, CA,  Dec 27, 2012

It's a fine netbook however there are two glaring flaws - one created by Asus, one by Intel. The Asus flaw is that there's absolutely NO access to the disk or memory from the bottom of the unit. There are two other Asus netbooks in my household and they both have access panels for at least the memory. Without easy access it's impossible to upgrade the memory on this unit. I'm sure the omission of access was intentional. Shame on you Asus. The Intel issue is the abysmal GMA/Poulsbo graphics in these units. Intel have used the (third party) Poulsbo graphics in previous Atom CPU's and they are complete crap, absolutely horrible performance and close to unusable. I wish I'd done my homework a bit better and noted that the Atom N2600 uses the junk Poulsbo graphics. If I had I would have gone with a unit that uses the AMD chip. Shame on you Intel. Overall - take a pass on this one and find a non-Atom unit that provides adequate access for upgrades!
