Default Asus Eeepc

Hey guys I have access to an Asus EeePC for a reasonable price.
I was just wondering what type of history they have. Do they breakdown often? Are they built strong?

Thanks ahead.

My System Specs


Define "reasonable price".

I personally wouldn't consider paying more than $50 for a netbook these days, and even then, my android tablet takes care of any functions that a netbook would fill.

I prefer hard keyboards too. One thing to do is research the model number. Asus made a huge array of models in the EEE line. Some could upgrade the memory easily. SOme were a PITA, some were impossible to do so due to it being soldered in - also variations in drive sizes and types and screens. How good a deal really depends on the model and how old it is and if the battery is still healthy.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
