Reviews for the Asus 1015E
Overall, while the Asus 1015E is hardly a powerhouse, it offers a fair amount of power for a laptop with a 10 inch screen and a price tag of $300 or less. There’s really nothing else quite like it on the market at the moment. That’s not to say that the Asus 1015E offers a no-compromise experience. The keyboard and touchpad are on the small side, which can take some getting used to.
