I'd bought it because I was going there, and all in all I'm glad I had it, but now it's just more trouble than it's worth.
What went wrong in Uganda;
- The wireless rarely worked
- The adapter stopped working
- When I replaced it the power didn't last long
- It didn't have all the programs it was supposed to
- The sound tended to stop working until I rebooted
- Getting keys (especially the space bar) to register was hard
- The left touchpad button sometimes stops working
- The right touchpad button doesn't work at all (you don't realize how much you use it until it's gone)
- Lifting they keyboard to check touchpad cable doesn't work
- When it's charging it sends out a painful, high pitched sound
- Installing certain programs such as Wine does not work
A great mix of software and hardware issues there...
I'll have to return it and I will as soon as papers and exams are over. I should probably start looking for a new laptop too - the eee was never meant as a full time kinda thing.
My advice to you?
Don't ever get an Asus eee!
