4 out of 5 eggsNice size, nice performance

Pros: Thin, light, very portable, crisp graphics, aesthetically pleasing, quiet, fast newer generation CPU for the screensize. The battery life, as advertised, is very good. Although good luck getting 8 hours from it. With moderate use, I can get about 5 hrs, maybe a little more, on par with a netbook. The speakers are adequate. The onboard sound is decent with a good pair of headphones.

Cons: The mousepad is really sensitive! So, like when I'm surfing sometimes links get unintentionally triggered. The form factor is so small and combined with the hyper mousepad, it accidentally gets brushed over... so beware lazy palms. I'm still trying to mess with the settings to get it to tame down with some success. In Windows 7 there must be over 30 individual mouse settings to tinker with. When I removed "tapping" that helped a little. It isn't quite as bad in Ubuntu, but still noticeable.

Also, the keyboard has stuck a couple times and the keys are a little squeaky.

Some lower quality videos in YT have not came through completely over wireless. I'm not sure if the bottleneck is in the onboard GPU or what it is. Most vids seem to stream fine with good quality.

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you have decided 13.3" is the screensize you want and can live without a DVD drive, then you will be hard pressed to get a better price/performance. This is my first machine without an optical drive and I only miss it once in a while, but having a thinner machine is probably a fair trade-off. The mouse issue has taken a little to get used to, but it's probably not a deal breaker.

I'm most impressed with the size, appearance, and performance. Compared to a netbook, it's not as squinty, but almost as portable with much much better performance.

5 out of 5 eggsThis Acer Rocks!

Pros: This little computer rocks! Despite its size, it is a desktop replacement. The i3 processor provides more than enough power to do video editing and backing up DVD's. The 13.3" display is the perfect compromise between a netbook and a traditional laptop. HD content plays flawlessly. Unlike my previous laptop, I hardly notice that I have it in my bag (along with my work laptop) due to its slim size and weight. Unlike other keyboards, this one has a full-size feel to my fingers which is good for a guy like me who has big hands. And, oh yes, the battery life is for real. On regular usage and stand-by, I have gotten up to almost 9 hours. With heavy usage, I still get over 6 hours.

Cons: Please note that this little rocker does not come with an optical drive. It was no big deal for me as I already had a USB optical drive.

Wish this was available 18 months ago when I bought the last laptop.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the hard drive with an SSD (which was very easy to do) and then installed my own copy of W7 64-bit. It runs like a champ, extremely fast with a 30 second boot-up and less than 10 second shutdown.

I wish this was my work computer!

5 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck

Pros: Good build quality
Keyboard is large enough - buttons where you'd expect
Runs cool and quiet
Able to do most medium to med-heavy computing without issue (some heavy loads (games on ultra settings) will cause it to sputter)
Battery lasts most of the day under 'normal' use.
Costumer support is good (I had a question about software and drivers--I didn't have to wait on the phone on hold a long time and the tech actually knew how to answer my questions)
Brushed finish

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Good value!
This isn't a gamer's laptop. However it does meld small size and powerful computing into an efficient, easy to carry unit that is a pleasure to use. It actually does what you'd expect it too and more...certainly more powerful than a netbook and on par with the best of the market leaders in this class.
Better customer service than asus. The 3820t is a good buy, look into it.

5 out of 5 eggsEggsactly what I've been looking for

Pros: Beautifully made, solid, lightweight, battery life, size, price, screen, speaker volume (given the small, near-netbook form factor), and great Linux compatibility.
The black, brushed aluminum cover looks great; palmrests have a similar finish, less heavily textured and lighter in color, and - fingerprint resistant! Track pad is slightly recessed, easily found by touch, and the single button bar works well. Keyboard has island-style flat keys with good responsiveness to them. Power supply brick is nice and small, approx 1"x2"x3.75", with ~10' cord length. Overall a very nice design, obviously well thought-out and subtly elegant.
An IT worker who travels for about 50% of my work, I believe this machine is going to fit the toolkit very well.
Regarding Linux - I ran Mint 9 from a USB stick, and after seeing near 100% compatibility (screen dimmer might need work), repartitioned and installed with no hitches in less than 20 minutes. Will post down the road if I run across anything of note

Cons: Nothing unexpected yet. I did expect some bloatware, as is common to nearly any Windows system these days, but even that is fairly minimal when compared to the likes of Toshiba or HP (Thanks, Acer!). Beside the Acer-branded games and utilities, it came w/McAfee, Norton Online Backup, eSobi, Office 2010 (trial, I assume), Silverlight, and AIR, and a couple other apps I don't remember but which were easily uninstalled in the first 20 minutes after initial boot.

Other Thoughts: I've had my eye on this machine since it came out, waiting for the price to drop - and it never really has. Currently, NewEgg has the best deal going @ $649 (however, since I finally pulled the trigger, expect discounts soon... ;) ). Due to my experience w/it so far, it could well be that consumer demand is what has kept the price so close to what it was at release many months ago.
I bought an Acer AO751h just over a year ago, found that small form factor was no hindrance; in fact quite the opposite is true, in my case. The ability of that smaller machine to do the work it can, yet have a screen res of 1366x768, a full sized keyboard, and 10+ hours of battery life kept me on the lookout for something to handle the things it could do, but slowly - mainly graphics related processing. This machine, with the dual core CPU and a stronger graphics chipset, should fill in nicely. 1080P vid on YouTube plays perfect under Linux. Screen opens wide - 160* or so, w/nice wide viewing angles.

2 out of 5 eggsGood product, poor newegg service

Pros: lightweight and powerful. great battery life. Good deal for the money. This a great machine for the typical college student. Not too big, and with the 8 hour battery life they can take it to class all day and charge at night.

Cons: This is so thin and delicate, not sure how durable this is going to be. See my note in other thoughts section about how one came in damaged.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately this is the second one that I had to buy. The first one came with a spot on the screen that later 'gre' into a crack. I think it was damaged in shipment because i saw the spot on the second day. NewEgg refused to take this back, even though talking to Acer, the said they would take it back as a DOA. Acer says they have to take it back through their channels. NewEgg will not cooperate so I am stuck with a broken second laptop. Beware dealing with NewEgg!
