4 out of 5 eggsCool little toy

Pros: Lots to like on this thing: size, weight, nice screen, awesome keypad with cool features, plenty of USBs, really quite overall, SSD is a plus (but more to follow on it later). Comes with a nifty little case....the power supply is small also. Overall perfect for the road warrior who is tired of carrying around a full size laptop!

Cons: Battery life just under 3 hours, keyboard is a bit tricky, speakers in the front, SSD (the speed it sometimes painfully slow causing web pages to hang up quite a bit). But that's about it.

Other Thoughts: I travel quite a bit and got tired of carrying my full size around. When on the road, I usually only need it for the net I decided to try this thing out. Besides some of the cons, I really like this thing. I didn't get it here but picked a black one up for $279. Overall very pleased and am having fun with it. Can't wait to see what the future holds in this market.

1 out of 5 eggsCruddy performance, worse support

Pros: Small, light-weight

Cons: Extremely cheap hardware, erratic behavior

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my wife last August to use as a secondary computer. Now, in March, the touchpad buttons have become erratic at best. Clicking only intermittently works. The device is under warranty, so I sent it to Asus for repair. They sent it back with the OS reinstalled, no repair done. The touchpad button still only clicks once in a while. Talked to Asus, and they want me to pay to ship the device back a second time. What a waste of money. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK.

1 out of 5 eggsasus is flopping fast

Pros: this is great if your kid is on your back about a laptop also want to clarify i own the 900a version which is merely equipped with a different size ssd of 4gb.

Cons: original ssd ate it after only 6 months bios tells me no master drive found. booting from an external usb YEAH RIGHT i now have 2 lap drives USELESS. another reviewer wrote forget XP heed his warning. included OS is loaded with bugs btw its xandros. the option to boot from an sd card is there but whats the point thats even replace the ssd with a decent speed is gonna run about $160 with a 32 gb run core model

Other Thoughts: its not the fault of intels atom the ssd drive is still in development sure it sounds fast. i mean no moving parts more battery power. but a life of 2 years 10k on off cycles and the more speed the shorter the life.. currently i can not sell one of these to a pawn shop. final thought..
if your gonna spend $300-$700 for a laptop buy a full sized full speed mobile processor machine. you may as well. your better off in the long run..

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Netbook for the Price

Pros: The Eee PC 900 is awesome! The small form factor offers a tiny footprint on desk space, super convenient for school and work. Very, very lightweight! Fast SSD drive allows for unreal boot times. Decent 1.3MP camera works great with Skype. Good quality and finish, nothing is flimsy. Overall great performer for a price that can't be beat.

Cons: I did not assign one Egg for a few things. The battery life leaves much to be desired for, with on average 3 hours max, really my only big gripe. The maximum supported RAM is 2GB. It gets very warm during heavy use (59-60*C). While the small SSD drive has great read/write speed, the larger one is very slow. Read the 'Other Thoughts' for my Pros and Cons reasoning.

Other Thoughts: With these netbooks one must approach the Eee PC in a different mindset than a traditional laptop. It is what it is; a netbook! It is very unrealistic to expect it to play Crysis or run Solidworks/AutoCAD. It will run necessary work software like Office 2003/2007. I use it for taking notes in college and for work. As for the small keyboard, it will take some time getting used to, but will not hinder use unless you have a flipper or hoof. I am currently running Windows 7 Beta build 7000, and it is ridiculously fast. I really hate to complain because the price is just fantastic for what you get.

If you want to know exactly how small these are, check out your local Target. They have started to sell the Eee PC 900 at Target (for $300!), and have them on open display for customers to manhandle/pickup. A great way to get an idea of the size and try it out!

3 out of 5 eggsGreat even with quirks

Pros: Very portable, stylish default OS, very quiet operation. VGA port is a lifesaver. 16 Gig HD can support dual boot of win/Linux installs. Wireless and ethernet adapters make traveling and connecting to networks a cinch. If you hose your default OS you can restore it to factory settings in 2 minutes. With Puppy Linux this is a dream.
Solid State drive and small setup uses low amounts of power, great for eco-conscious folks. Perfect for retro gaming. Great for impressing everyone.

Cons: System does not go into full sleep state because of faulty hardware so wireless adapter and camera will drain the battery almost overnight unless you fully unplug -- even if you disable them in the BIOS. Stock battery lasts about 2 to 2.5 hrs depending what's running. My USB bluetooth dongle doesn't work with the Eepc, big disappointment. Also If you want to run another distro of Linux you need a custom kernel for CPU scaling. No Windows drivers are provided. No cd drive, look to pay $70 for an external unit, but if you do get one, it performs very well (DVD playback is great.) Touchpad buttons aren't fun to use.

Other Thoughts: I was very surprised to learn of the battery draining problem and what a hassle it is for people to get it fixed, that's my one and major gripe. Otherwise I take it to college with me and it's perfect for writing up notes, collaborating across G**gle, doing web stuff and chatting. I use Ubuntu on it which runs fine, ext2 filesystem and noop scheduler cut down on HD read/write but sometimes during high cpu load things will be stuck a while. This is a nice little computer, I paid $300 for it retail at a store. For me the pros have outweighed the cons.

3 out of 5 eggsNice but needs improvement

Pros: This is a nice little netbook(got the black). Light weight allows me to carry it to work and move it around the office easily. This has more features than my previous laptop.

Cons: As everyone knows already, the battery life on this is not that great. It loses 10% of the battery even when not turned on. The 16GB SSD is slow and I mean slow. It takes a while to load stuff.

Other Thoughts: Despite the cons, this is a nice netbook. If I waited a week, I would've saved some money but that's computers for you.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad but Not Great

Pros: Very portable. Good looking. Nice clear screen. The touch pad is awesome - you can scroll the screen by touching two fingers and dragging them up and down. I keep trying to do this with normal laptops at work to no avail!

Cons: Battery life is by far my biggest beef with this laptop. 3 hours tops even with the screen brightness turned down to the lowest setting. Also with a full charge, once it it unplugged from the charger, it loses battery power, even when powered off. If it sits for a week after being fully charged, it will be dead when I go to use it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop to use for college. The resolution is just a bit too low at 1024x600. My online courses seem to be optimized for a browser running at 1024x768 and scrolling the screen has really been a pain. I've taken to using my desktop computer, which is in a high traffic area in my house, so I am losing the main reason that I purchased the laptop in the first place. It's really not a bad laptop, but had I known what I know now, I would not have purchased it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Outstanding size and performance for it's size. Simple to use (my wife is the end user) Linux distro that she understands and prefers now that it is in use. Value to Price is well above average.

Cons: The keyboard is a bit fickle in some cases. The battery doesn't last nearly as long as expected, although after reading and updating the BIOS it is better and a cheap upgrade battery is available.

Other Thoughts: Glad to have my wife using Linux without complaining.

5 out of 5 eggsworth it, as long as you have some skills

Pros: Excellent performance for its price. I love the whole thing. it performs better than I expected. Great display, eeebuntu with compiz runs perfectly fine.

Cons: Xandros is terrible, but the laptop is totally worth buying as long as you get the latest version of eeebuntu. Leave it to the wondrous nerds out there to come up with a wonderful solution to the awful version of linux they tried to commercialized.

Other Thoughts: At least it's not windows, though xp wasn't too bad.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Notebook

Pros: Just Love it! (And so does my 9 yr old)

Cons: The Fan is TOO noisy, and as soon as it dies and burns up the cpu. ASUS is going to repair it and send it back. (I hope) Other wise I'll have to do it myself and add add a Compact flash card.
The only other problem was limited approved linux software, but ASUS updated the updater and I think that will make this point mute.
