Performance

The 16GB SSD is slower than you might expect. I experienced long delay times in normal usage, most times a freeze lasting longer than 10 seconds. Turns out that NTFS is a terrible file format for this SSD because of the file-permissions associated with the write commands. Convert the NTFS sys volume to FAT32, and apparently things get quite a bit faster. I would think a SSD would be much faster than a normal hard drive, that's why I was dissapointed with the performance of the unit as a whole. Battery life was very good though.

-Russell W. quote

The price and features for this 900 series eeepc are outstanding. Asus builds a quality product that feels and looks expensive. This particular eeepc has the 16gig ssd card, and I found out later on forums that it is a slow card compared to the 12gig and smaller cards. You will notice some slow application loads, but overall when surfing, and typing on a word document its not very noticeable. I would recommend it for its value, but caution if you are looking for a zippy little notebook, I would look elsewhere.
