Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a handy little machine, nice looking, with great battery life. It copes reasonably well with basic computing demands.
Bad points:
Obviously it's much slower than a mid-range PC - even moreso than I expected.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cracking battery life. Super small foot print with a decent keyboard. Asus gate is useful. Overall very happy needed it for travelling around Australia booking flights hotels etc.
Bad points:
really niggles rather than bad points.

Screen not being 720hd is noticeble but can be partially offset with with mozilla light addon to maximise screen real estate. Installing Skype manually on the hard disk - cpu's may not be totally up to holding voice convos (even when mains plugged in). I can't be totally sure on this point just first impressions. I am very hopeful that the asusgate linux partition (8sec boot time!) which has skype installed will correct this.

June, Loughborough Often on the move

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I like the battery life which is more than adequate for my purposes. I also like the appearance and styling. The screen is a good size.
Bad points:
I think performance would improve with another slice of RAM, but for the money it is still good value. The zoom feature on the screen seems to activate itself when moving the cursor with the pad but that could just be me not being used to the keyboard yet, however it is easy to correct.
