Good: Light weight. Clear screen. Nice Keyboard.
Bad: Highly reflective Screen, the case attracts those finger marks !
Comment: I have been using this netbook for 9 months now. Generally I find it very adequate for the sort of use a netbook is made for. Shame about the oh so shiny screen,which makes use in certain light conditions very trying. Also the Hot Key operation of the Volume Control lasted about two weeks before throwing in the towel, it's annoying to have to keep accessing the control in the Task Bar.The flaps covering the USB ports etc, seem rather flimsy,but haven't broken off yet ! With a 250 gig hard drive & Win 7 Basic it's a good machine,but would be better with more Ram. Battery life can be eked out with careful use of the settings, if you can get 4 hours,you're doing well. For the money it's a good buy.
Good: Excellent design, price, portable generally good performance.
Bad: Performance CAN sometimes be slow and sluggish but only for a short period, volume keys stopped working very quickly.
Comment: An excellent netbook, one of the best out there at the moment, so easy to carry around (ideal for school) The Screen is very nice, and if you get the windows 7 edition, you can get a 250GB model with 500GB online storage, which is obviously extremley handy. The biggest complaint i would have is sometimes performance drops and becomes slow, btu generally it's a good one, especially if you upgrade the RAM to 2GB. Another really quite anooying thing is that the fn volume keys stopped working after about three weeks of usage, which can be a seriously big pain, having to click ont he volume button on the taskbar often takes a while and can be extremly annoying. generally an awesome product and thoroughly good purchase!!
