Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Having a dual core processor (Atom 330) helps in multitasking and the inclusion of the Nvidia Ion GPU helps with gaming and graphic intensive tasks.
Bad points:
Very shiny - picks up fingerprints easily and screen is very reflective. Keyboard is okay although could be improved.
I found Windows 7 to be slow though, so would recommend either installing Windows XP or Linux (such as Ubuntu 64 bit version); also, the copy Windows 7 is only 32-bit and so can only handle upto 4gb of ram, the eeepc can be upgraded to 8gb ram, a missed opportunity I feel.
