Good points:
Small & light - battery life not as good as some other netbooks, but still great for travelling, and lighter than the alternatvies.
Nice case design.
Ubuntu OS works perfectly well - quick startup too.
Utterly silent - no internal fans.
Great value for money.
Bad points:
Can get a little warm - the downside of being totally silent.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
great value, the mouse with clicker keys on the bottom rather than the side is great (it is heaps better than the acer aspire that i have used), has great specs for the price, screen is super clear, has great full screen features to make the screen bigger so you can fit more on a page (task bar retracts). overall i'm very happy!
Bad points:
keys slightly small (though you get used to it), and can't quite tilt screen back enough, but don't let that stop you, its a great value machine
