Good: nice and small
Bad: can be slow
Comment: The eee pc 901 is a nice small netbook , what for me is the best thing is the inbuilt 3g card slot, no need for a 3g dongle
Good: Size, design, portability, ruggedness, battery life, wow factor
Bad: small C drive, maddening track pad
Comment: I have had the 901 about a year now. To all intents and purposes, it suits my needs perfectly when I am away from my main computer (Mac). Everyone comments on it, I love it and it's great - except. The C drive is only 4Gb. Every programme I download I direct to the larger D drive (8Gb), but somehow there are applications which attach themselves to the C drive and I frequently get the "There is not enough space left on the C Drive". The over-sensitive track pad is infuriating, and I have tried all the adjustments suggested, downloaded patches and so forth, all to no avail. I use a mini mouse, which is fine at a table, but often I am outside, so the track pad needs to be used.. Because of the limited hard drive memory, my music is on a memory stick, but file memory is not an issue, as there is an SD card slot for additional memory. It's the space for applications that is a major issue. As you can see, a kind of love/hate relationship!
Good: Speed , boot time, applications, design
Bad: keyboard is a tad tricky (but not too bad)
Comment: I'll keep it brief, but ive been using this laptop for 24 hours and i am completely in love with it, i havent put it down and my lap hasnt been empty in that entire time, it is just too fun to play with and type on, having said that I'm still going to do my college work on my dell inspiron, but for general surfage you can't really go wrong with this!
