1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Compared to the EEE PC, I can't find any.

Cons: First, Windows 7 Starter is the biggest slap in the face Microsoft has ever done to its customers. They strip every option out of it, even the ability to change your desktop wallpaper! I wiped the hard drive and tried to install a better OS, but had problems getting drivers to work correctly. It was only after wiping the hard drive I found out this doesn't come with a recovery disc! Your only options for restore are the restore partition or ordering (and paying for) a recovery disc from Acer. My EEE PC came with a recovery disc for those of us who have external CD drives. After I FINALLY got things working with Windows 7, I discovered there is a major problem with the WiFi card not working. It's intermittent, but most of the forums online talk about replacing the physical card with a different WiFi card. THAT'S how bad it is! I spent 2 days trying to get this piece of junk to work and after trying every driver I could find, still couldn't get the WiFi to work.

Other Thoughts: My sister-in-law got this from a brick and mortar store against my advice. She tried to take it back but they said she needed to go through Acer, even though the problems are with hardware not working properly. I guess she's just stuck with this thing because no one will admit there's a problem with it and thinks we don't know how to turn on the WiFi. Oh how I wish she'd gotten the EEE PC from New Egg like I wanted her to.

5 out of 5 eggsA mobile powerhouse, given its specs

Pros: Lightweight
Long Battery Life
More Durable than it looks
Large enough screen, with a VGA output for use with larger monitors
Full of Surprises.

Cons: Multi touch seems to come and go after a few months of use, but it only does so randomly after boot up or coming out of hibernation. Rubber anti skid nubs tend to fall off after months of sliding back and forth on any surfaces.

Other Thoughts: Despite its specs, this netbook really does offer the most bang for your buck when going for quality and price. At default specs, it can handle average web browsing and simultaneous document editing. It also has enough power to play video in standard def with no issues running it alongside other low demand applications, and 720p youtube videos work fine as long as you are not doing anything else. Also, this netbook is able to play not so terribly old games and do it well (Morrowind, Dawn of War 1, and Rise of Nations are the ones I tested out with resounding success) and it also works well as a media hub for streaming HD video to your 360. Another thing worth noting is that it has a lot more processing power than you might give it credit for, which also applies to video conversion. Sure you wont be able to use the thing for about 6-8 hours when converting a standard length movie from one format to another, but it is nice to know the option exists. All in all, this is a good buy.

4 out of 5 eggsWorst customer service of any electronic company

Pros: Worked well for the first couple of weeks, I like the netbook itself, the problem is with Acer as a company. Everything but the touch pad works well, and both my OS work well on it. Is great for school, light weight so its easy to carry around and it is pretty fast after getting rid of windows 7 starter and upgrading memory to 2Gb. Just the customer service of Acer sucks really bad.

Cons: The touch pad started to have iffy response, not recognizing clicks every once in a while. After about a month the bumps on the pad itself have worn off and now the cursor moves on its own accord making use borderline impossible at times, barely recognizing clicks by touching pad or using buttons. When I called Acer customer service I was told first that they believed that it was due to changing the operating system. I informed them I have two operating systems windows 7 pro and Ubuntu 10.10 both totally clean installs and that this problem with the touch pad has been in both my operating systems and the original OS it came with. I was then told I had to pay to ship it and wait two weeks for them to decide if it was my fault or theirs and decide if I have to pay for them to fix it or not. I was also told that they would restore my hard drive to factory settings, erasing both my OS's. When I asked to speak to a supervisor I was transfered to a "level 2" CSR. Who also did nothing for me.

Other Thoughts: He also told me that supervisors couldn't be bothered to take customers calls. I will NEVER buy an Acer product again. I bought this for college, I am a full time student and not only can I not be without my netbook for school for the length of time Acer is projecting, I can not afford to pay to ship it across the country. I feel that an electronic company should be responsible for the shipping of faulty, in warranty, products. I also believe that the CSR's at Acer were very unprofessional and not helpful what so ever. Not to mention the very proud "level 2" CSR kept telling me that I was "escalated" to him because the "level 1" CSR spoke too little english for me to understand. He was also very disrespectful in general.

4 out of 5 eggsAwsome!

Pros: Lightweight, easy to setup and use!

Cons: No CD or DVD-ROM drive thus resulting in a 4 star rating only...

Other Thoughts: First of all let me start this off by stating that I have always hated laptops or anything else that didn't come in a ATX tower. But this little gem changed my opinion on netbooks and laptops! Also, the memory in this netbook can be upgraded. I upgraded mine to 2GB which really helps this netbook out a lot. Another user claims this can not be upgrade but obviously he has very limited PC tech ep, or he would realize it can and in fact does with ease!

My only complaint is this unit dosen't come with a CD or DVD drive which really effects compatability with 90% of todays applications. To get around this I had to buy a external DVD-drive and that extra cost set me back another $50.00 which I guess I have to swallow.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Long battery life
Good construction

Cons: The FN keys don't all work, i'm not sure if it's a windows thing or the netbook.

Other Thoughts: I installed Windows 7 pro x64 on it and put 2 GB of RAM in the netbook. It works fine except for a windows problem i'm having - I don't know if it's related to the netbook (i've never seen it on any other computer)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat netBook

Pros: Everything... Nice keyboard which allows my large fingers to use without issues. Display is sharp. Upgraded the memory to 2GB without issues. Ordered the memory from the Egg... KVR667D2SO/2GR Battery life is very good. Wireless works great... Get the picture? :)

Cons: Nothing so far

2 out of 5 eggsNice system

Pros: lots of features easy to install drivers, 7starter went bye bye very fast. XP drivers were on acer's website very power efficient.

Cons: the built in Mic is not seen by XP there is no Driver on Acer's website when attempting to contact them all i get is A problem has been encountered. Your question could not be processed. If i hadnt seen it I would think the mic was not there but if its built in all i need is the correct driver that was not on acer's website

Other Thoughts: System runs Xp very well, keyboard and touch pad are seamless install, 7 drivers were already in XP, if you are going to tune up the machine and do away with 7 change sata to IDE mode so you can change partitions

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Piece of Hardware

Pros: Bought this netbook to replace a 17" behemoth that fried 2 video adapters, the motherboard itself, and finally a hard drive. I had it undervolted and using a Zalman cooling pad through it's 2.5 year lifespan. I have a second PC, which has plenty of power in it to do anything I could have possibly fathomed doing in a laptop, so I simply was not interested in power for this purchase, only keeping heat from being an issue, and being able to work away from my wall plug b/c battery life had dwindled to ~20 minutes... max.

Using my 17" laptop's cooling pad, and removing the battery while plugged into the wall with this netbook yields a totally worry-free experience and the entire case feels cool to the touch, even after a few hours of use. With Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix, battery life peaks at around 6.5 hours with the most basic power management settings (essentially, the default ones). Mouse pad is a bit close to the space bar and I hit it quite often, but each it's less and less.

Cons: Because I knew beforehand I would be getting something meant for portability and light-use, I knew I wasn't getting a truly high performing computer, therefore, I have no complaints.

Space bar and mouse pad are a little too close, but I have gotten used to it more and more each day, so it becomes less frequent that I look to add a space and wind up scrolling down a page.

Other Thoughts: To correct a few of the people who complained about memory on this computer... YES, it accepts 2 GB sticks, I ordered a stick with model number: KVR667D2SO/2GR right here off Newegg, for $46.99 (Aug. 2010 price) and it registers in Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix as 2 GB. Performance is noticeably better and altogether the experience is more enjoyable with the added memory.

The machine looks durable (and beautiful) and there are plenty of vents for warm air to escape, unlike my 17" laptop, which had 2 small exhausts... score one for Gateway design on that one.

Overall, I feel as though I'm happier with this than I would have been with anything else. It's nice to sit outside for a few hours and surf the web than be holed up in an ice box trying to keep my laptop from frying something else inside it.

2 out of 5 eggsAce in the hole

Pros: Light weight. Best sized keyboard on a netbook I've seen, period. LCD well lit and battery light is outstanding.

Cons: Very big con, which caused me to sell mine. Memory is not upgradeable. Newegg says it is, other places online say it is, going to Acer's website says this particular model *IS NOT*. One gig is all it will take. Order two different 2 gig sticks from Newegg to attempt an upgrade, learned the hard way it would not. Returned ram and sold netbook.

Other Thoughts: Sorry to say, this was the only netbook to fit my large man hands. But the inability to upgrade the ram is a costly and unfrogiveable oversight. So this thing had to go. :(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Netbook

Pros: Performs as advertised. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix (UNR), and everything worked out of the box. I get about 6 hours battery life with moderately heavy usage.

Cons: It came with an outdated BIOS. It was necessary to update to the latest rev before the CORSAIR 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) upgrade would work.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 Starter is trash, I never even booted it up.

It is a good idea to install the Linux wireless backports modules to prevent the wireless connection from sometimes dropping.
