via Amazon

ASUS 1015E-DS03 10.1 inch is small yet powerful, highly mobile, light and slim, efficient and great value for money. It uses the Linux- Ubuntu operating system which you may enjoy even more than Windows 8..

Intel Celeron 847 processor at 1.1 GHz with 2 GB DDR3 RAM comes with dual-core power for easy multitasking.

320 GB at 5400 rpm speed hard drive and a complimentary 32GB x 3 years ASUS Cloud based WebStorage to save your files and access from any device and wherever you are.

10.1 inch screen is a little bigger than netbooks and resistant to glare- you don't see yourself on the screen while working.. 1366*768 pixel resolution and Intel Integrated Graphics offer bright images and vivid colors.

Big speakers for its size and sound tuning as well as Asus Sonic Master System gives you great quality of audio that you will enjoy.

Relatively large keys for the keyboard space but the keys are close to each other. Still quite good with a well functioning touchpad.

Asus 1015E-DS03 comes with the pre-installed Linux-Ubuntu, which is a strong, safe- free from viruses, efficient operating system and it doesn't take long to get used to Ubuntu, even probably easier than Windows 8 for some. Unity is the name of the interface you will work on and it is quite user friendly.

You will find Firefox pre-installed on it or you can choose to use Google Chrome or others. LibreOffice is kind of the free Microsoft Office substitute on Linux-Ubuntu, which is also completely compatible with Microsoft Office Word, Excel etc.
