Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact and lightweight, good battery life (nearly seven hours!), works superbly well with OCZ SSD disks. HDMI and Wireless N are both good features.
Bad points:
Inability to disable camera/bluetooth in BIOS. My old EEEPC 1000H let me do this and get the battery life up by another hour or so.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's a great little product and does what it was supposed to. I've never liked the very flat keyboards of laptops, but at least the size of this one is OK. 6 months on and there is still nothing on the market that would beat the spec of this machine including all the 12" machines out there. Solidly built and working well.
Bad points:
My only real gripe is the strange screen resolution of this and all other 10 inch screens so you can't get enough on the screen at a time, especially web pages.

Keith , Drogheda

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Most comprehensive amount of hardware options for its size, in the netbook class - nvidia 9 series gfx + intel integrated vga (the ability to choose between them for different purposes is excellent idea and very useful be it for playing games or saving power and doing business stuff) wifi, bluetooth, usb ports, vga out, pci-express slot, card reader and external cd-rw. Excellent design, light and portable. And keyboard is very good for the size of the unit, better than other netbooks by a mile.
Bad points:
Battery life as expected and in the spec manuals, for gaming you will prob only get 2+ hours, but switch to intel integrated to save power and its not a problem for low end gaming (older gaming titles) and business apps and web browsing (prob around 6+ hours)
CPU Atom is a little slow, but not bad overall, use overclocking utils to give it a bit of a kick now an then - especially for some games.

Ian, Malta

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight and easy to carry around. Very portable but yet has a very good battery life. Comfortable keyboard to use. Handles graphical intensive programs and games very well for its size. 2gb of ram means you can open several programs at the same time. It also has a stylish design which sets it apart from all the other netbooks out there. Comes with a lot of items in the box along with pre installed software which, most of are very good.
Bad points:
CPU leaves much to be desired. 1.6ghz struggles with certain applications. Although it has been designed to work with Vista, the operating system feels a bit sluggish sometimes. Start up times aren't so good with Vista. Best off using XP with this netbook.

Tim, Gillingham Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
At time of buying, only netbook with a decent graphics capability (GeForce 9300M). Gaming is possible on this netbook, especially with games that are over 4 years old.
Can just about run Vista adequately. XP would be faster, but Vista looks nicer and won't go out of date so fast.
Bad points:
Screen a little too small. ASUS could have, and should have, fitted an 11.1 inch screen in this netbook, IMO, not just a 10.2 inch. The bezel around the screen is thick enough to accommodate a slightly larger screen. A 1024 x 768 standard resolution would have been a lot better than 1024 x 600.
Atom processor is the bottleneck in the system, it's really a little slow for a Vista / Gaming laptop, it holds back the video performance. I have to overclock the Atom to get a useful speed out of it - however, it overclocks very well. Cuts battery life down to 2.5 hours, but it's worth it for the speed and smoother graphics.
Would have appreciated a little more RAM too, 3 Mb would be a lot better than 2.
