4 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: Installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix and it just flies. Keyboard just feels right. Screen is nice and crisp. Speakers work good enough. It is great to take to conferences. It gets a lot of looks.

Cons: No bluetooth. Linpus Linux by default. Under Ubuntu and Cheese, taking pictures is fine, but recording video does not work.

Other Thoughts: Small, Stylish, Linux = great. In fact I have stopped using my desktop and just use it most of the time

3 out of 5 eggsWindows is SO slow with an SSD

Pros: - Webcam
- Boots quickly
- SSD read speed
- Clear screen
- Linpus does what it's supposed to do

Cons: - When I installed Windows XP Home, performance went down dramatically. Anything that requires data to be written to the SSD slows the netbook dramatically. I wish I had gotten the HDD version.
- Trackpad takes time to get used to

Other Thoughts: When I bought this, it was $240 on Newegg with free shipping. At that price, it was worth it. At the current price of $300, it's worth it as long as you're willing to stay with Linux or replace the SSD.

Unfortunately, it's hard to find 1.8" hard drives...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little netbook

Pros: *Price. At $240, this thing was a steal
*Performance per Power. The Intel Atom270 has turned out to be an awesome little low power processor. I can play 720p x264s, light image editing, word processing, browsing, light game playing, etc on it with no slow downs. I was a little weary of it at first, but I have no complaints
*1gb of ram for this price is great
*Read speed from the SSD is acceptable
*Expandable memory
*Screen - bright and crisp. It may be small, but the 1024x600 screen has plenty of resolution for on the go computing. You can also hook it up to an external monitor at decent resolution.
*Very moddable. (though voids warranty). It's expandable to 1.5gb ram, and you can replace the harddrive using compact flash, a 1.8" ipod drive or a few other ways. You can also add bluetooth and other devices.
*Keyboard has been shrunk with focus on keeping used keys large. The keyboard is very funcitonal, but takes some getting used to
*3 usb ports

Cons: *Linpus lite - it may be ok for the casual user, but is based on an older version of fedora (old version of open office, firefox, some other software) and lacks a lot of features for power users. I almost immediately installed Ubuntu 8.10, which works great
*Write speed to the SSD. The write speed is known to be terrible. There are a lot of tweaks you can make to keep writing to the ssd to a minimum (use the ram for tmp). The slow write speed is unnoticeable for most normal use, and is tolerable.

Other Thoughts: For the technical user, this netbook provides a great starting point for a good netbook.
For the casual user, the netbook shipped from the factory provides a fully functional netbook for on the go office work and web surfing.
For heavy users without much technical knowledge: this probably isn't the netbook for you.
I like the performance (except the SSD). expandability, low cost of the Aspire One, and am thoroughly happy with my purchase.

3 out of 5 eggsFantastic buy for casual users

Pros: 1> Compact design with a good keyboard; The keys spring back when you type and they aren't too small to type on. Some of you with larger hands may have a hard time adjusting to the size difference, however.

2> Bright, crisp display.

3> Great integrated wifi; The Atheros wifi chip seems to perform on par with the usual Broadcom, if not better.

4> Portability! When you close the netbook, it goes into suspend mode to save you battery life. Although the 3-cell battery that comes with this will only last you 2 and a half hours (optimistically) you can order 6 or even 9 cell batteries to make it worth your while. (8.5 hours of battery life on a note/netbook? Sounds like a dream!)

Cons: 1> Webcam is horrible. The bandwidth is slow so don't bother taking videos with it. 0.3 megapixel? What is this, 1998?

2> MOST IMPORTANTLY: The SSD that comes in this device is bottom-of-the-barrel. It must be based on old flash technology, or is at least the cheapest, crappiest SSD that acer could afford. In the Linpus Lite environment, you won't notice it, but should you install Windows like I have, you'll soon discover that the write speed of the drive is MISERABLE. Sure, it can boot up in 15 seconds, but if you're running an operating system that uses a pagefile, you'll tell a different story. If you're a power user, look into finding a compact-flash-to-ZIF adapter with a suitable sized CF or even an 1.8 iPod hard drive to use when you crack this baby open to upgrade it's RAM to 1.5gb. BOTTOM LINE: I don't mind the webcam. My satisfaction with this product was 5 eggs until I discovered how horrible the SSD inside is; If I had known, I would've bought the HDD model.

Other Thoughts: Caveat emptor. Do your research before buying this; If you plan on installing XP at any point, don't bother unless you're also willing to install it to a new storage device.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat item for travel

Pros: I bought this while on the road and I have been pleased with it. The Aspire One is just what I have needed for the past few years but have not been able to find. I have gone through a ton of laptops traveling and I think I found a soild buy for sometime. I believe my next laptop will be just an updated one of these down the road.

Cons: Nothing really other then my Mic has not been working 100% but I do not video chat much and Just use my Phone for a crisp call and then use the web cam for any video my family or work need from me.

Other Thoughts: I look forward to their next line and any upgrades in the processor or video. They are not required but would jsut be fun for a replacement to this model.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat netbook

Pros: Fast, Affordable, well built see others comments

Cons: storage space is low on this model, can be fixed by installing a hard disk later if you need more space, or if your not into dismantling you new netbook to put one in buy a model with a HDD

XP + preloaded garbage takes up way too much space

Other Thoughts: I bought mine at a local store they had the blue one on sale on their site for 285+tax and i picked it up at the local store

First thing i did as an avid ubuntu user (linux) I put Ubuntu 8.10 on it, you will need to use a USB memory stick or the easier way is to plug in any USB dvd/cd drive in and boot off the CD instead of going though the hassle of making a USB boot disk, Works great with ubuntu 8.10 everything except for the wifi works out of the box, and the wifi drivers are very easy to install, if your interested in trying this out here's a good guide on ubuntu's site google it

After i have installed everything i need in ubuntu i currently have 3.7 gigs free out of 6.88 on the SSD, with 500 mb space taken for the swap partition, much better than XP

oh and compiz 3D rendered desktop effects work very well on it, and the sound is much louder in linux than it was in XP, it sounds very good accualy, I was disapointed with the volume in XP

4 out of 5 eggsCheaper at brick and mortar store around you

Pros: This has all been mentioned before, so I will not commeent on the pros.

Cons: [1] Space is an issue if you don't do what I outline below. It's got ONLY 8GB on C:, so we have to be smart about installing s/w.
[2] Boot up on Win XP Home version takes about 1.5 minutes. Even after that you have to wait for Google Desktop and other CPU/memory hogging s/w to initialize before the netbook is functional.

Other Thoughts: All of this applies to the 16GB SSD Win XP Home version.
[1] You can get this cheaper if you go to your local tech store. They have it for $299 + tax (~ $30)
[2] Default install by Acer has a bunch of crapware.
[3] Because of the 8GB C: drive, you will very soon run out of disk space if you install MS Office, Google Desktop, and Adobe Reader 9. Keep on reading...
Here's how to remedy [3]: (Needs working internet connection)
[4] Uninstall MS Office (save the serial key if you entered one)
[5] Uninstall Adobe Reader 9
[6] Uninstall Java
[7] Uninstall Google Desktop and associated s/w
[8] Re-install [4], [5] and [6] on D: drive. This saves precious space on C:. Remember to hit customize when installing MS Office and Adobe Reader.
[9] You can make do without [7]. It's a 16GB SDD for crying out loud! Use MS Windows Search and tweak the settings to only search certain folders.
[10] Update using Microsoft update

After doing this, you will have about 1.5GB left on C: and about 6.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this netbook

Pros: 1. Lower price as compared to other netbooks from Dell, HP, Asus
2. The bundled Linpus Lite is fast and sufficient for email and other basic uses
3. Ubuntu intrepid Ibex works except for wireless. There are workarounds posted at the ubuntu wiki pages.
4. Installed Skype. Works great including built in mic and webcam.

Cons: 1. Does not come with Skype preinstalled. But one can install it easily using howtos on the web.
2. Installed Ubuntu intrepid Ibex, a bit slow. But I hear the Ubuntu Netboox Remix runs faster as they have removed a lot of the extras that are bundled with the regular Ubuntu OS.
4. Speakers are too puny. But if you use a headset, you are fine.

Other Thoughts: Hard to upgrade the RAM, SSD if you wanted to. But most users will not end up doing that!

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every Penny

Pros: Size/Power is great, the Atom takes care of most anything you need to do. Very user friendly.

Cons: Keyboard takes a bit of getting used to, but i do have big hands, so take this with a grain of salt.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic machine. Great value. Though I really like it, keep in mind it is a netbook, not a laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic what $350 gets you

Pros: * Best keyboard layout of the netbooks. For something so small, a pleasure to type on.

* Form factor and weight is absolutely fantastic. Great for commuters.

* 16GB SSD. Not great performance under heavy activity, but okay, and certainly acceptable for a $350 laptop.

* Screen is very bright and clear.

* Has a definite "cool" factor to it. I get asked about it almost every time I break it out on the train.

Cons: * 3-cell battery means only around two hours of use on the road. This is easily the biggest drawback of the machine. The 6-cell replacement is bulkier, hard to find, and costs over $100.

* Minor gripe: The case is a fingerprint magnet.

* Trackpad is small and a little awkward. Nothing you can't get used to.

* Screen brightness cannot be adjusted much below 50%. This is due to a conservative table in the BIOS that works around a screen flicker bug on some systems. A future BIOS revision is supposed to fix this.

* No bluetooth.

Other Thoughts: * Installed Ubuntu 8.10 on it. A few well-documented hiccups and workarounds are described on the Ubuntu wiki page.

* When first unpacked, in Linpus, audio was only coming out one channel. I feared a hardward problem. Newegg, as usual, was great, giving me an RMA super fast. Turns out it was just a software issue.

* Comes with a reasonable cover to protect it from scratches in your backpack.

* You'll get a thrill seeing just how small the box it comes in is.
