Its Light for travel, attractive, has good key layout for a smaller laptop, the battery lasts 4-5 hours, dust covers over the ports, compact. I enjoy it quite a bit.. and was also able to put Linux on as a system which is working flawlessly.

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This little gem is for my young daughter to help her learn word processing/spreadsheets etc and communicate with friends via MSN, facebook and all the stuff kids like to do (under supervision) and obviously its not aimed at high end multi media users, its child sized but with the usual Asus quality, stylish design, clear bright screen, the battery lasts longer than the claimed 5 hrs even surfing the web, does everything you expect from a laptop at more than reasonable speed, she's totally in love with it and I'm very happy with my choice.
Bad points:
Hesitate to call this a bad point but there is no optical drive due to its compact size so needs a USB DVD/CDRW drive for those backups and installations, small price to pay for such a neat little device IMO.
