Size matters, no matter what anybody says, and sometimes smaller is better. Especially if you know what to do with it, and Asus does. The Eee PC 900 HA is designed for people that need lots of power in a small package. The Intel Atom N270 CPU and 1GB of memory run this Windows XP system with power to spare.

The 8.9" screen has a 1024x600 resolution. Because of the smaller screen you can easily use it on a plane or train. The screen is driven by the integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics subsystem.

Since the 900HA is designed to be used anywhere there is a built in WiFi controller that supports 802.11b/g protocols. If there is no wireless signal around then you can plug into a standard Fast Ethernet connection. A webcam lets you have video chats.

5 out of 5 eggsThank you Asus & Newegg...

Pros: High portability, solid running machine. I had some doubts as to what I would be getting when I ordered it, but having it just one day alleviated any concerns that I had going in. I'm glad that I went for the XP OS rather than the Linux one. Can't beat the price either. I've read many reviews where people got theirs in 2 days. Well I got mine in 3 but one extra day is nothing to snivel about. lol

Cons: Still trying to configure the browser to run complete web pages but I think that is probably more on the user than the machine. good thing I have small hands otherwise typing on this would be next to impossible. Also wish I'd have sprung for the memory upgrade. Depending on the application being run 1 gig of memory makes it sluggish at times.

Other Thoughts: I kind of wish that it had come with Word 2007 instead of Power Point 2007. I'm a student working on my transfer degree and Word is the program that I use the most of the MS Office package.
For anyone seriously considering this Netbook, I would suggest memory upgrade as well as an external CD/DVD drive. Having the drive would make loading any apps less of a chore. Especially if you don't have access to another computer to download apps and programs to a thumb drive. In any case I am certainly enjoying my new computer. Saved me about $500 since I didn't have to purchase a full size Notebook. It would have been even more of a steal had I gotten the drive and the memory.

5 out of 5 eggsKickin little netbook!

Pros: -Portability and price are the major pros for this netbook. It's great to be able to just pick up and go whenever I need!
-The battery life is also amazing. I've easily gone 4-5 hours on it at a time, and only ran it down to 30% remaining battery life.
-It comes with a "performance hybrid engine" so you can switch on the fly between power save mode, super performance mode, and automatic.
-It's extremely light weight and can handle a lot more performance than what most netbooks are getting credit for.
-It loads and displays videos online very quickly.
-The LCD is bright enought that it can be viewed outside.
-I was able to run 3 IE windows, (one streaming music from Pandora, one running JavaScript for schoolwork, and one on a Local News page) download iTunes, and type up a long Word 2007 document; all at the same time without getting any slowdown toggling between all the windows.

Cons: -The 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor, though it can be overclocked, is this computer's greatest flaw compared to regular notebooks. However, at this time and place it's fairly hard to avoid. If you are going from a dual or quad core processor, you are definitely going to notice a difference in performance.
-I haven't noticed anyone else mention this yet, but this thing can get pretty hot. Especially the power brick if it's charging the battery from little or no power. I thought I would be fine, but wound up buying a cooling pad the second week of owning it because it was getting too hot on my lap.
-A lot of people are complaining about the keyboard, but you do get used to it. It only took me 20-30 minutes to get used to touch typing on it, and I have larger than average hands. I still miss a few keys here and there but it's really not a biggy.
-This is a no brainer, but it's not going to run any relatively newer games.

Other Thoughts: -Upgrade to 2 Gigs of RAM right away. It's not that expensive ($20-30) and it makes all the difference!
-This thing has been able to handle everything I've thrown at within reason in terms of programs.
*IE 8 and Firefox 3 run great
*Office 2007 runs fine
*C++ Studio Express and VB Studio Express run great
*NES, SNES, Genesis, and N64 ROMs all run great.
*Itunes runs flawlessly

The only program I've had an issue with thus far is FL Studio 5 XXL. Someone in an earlier review stated that they DJ'd and took it to gigs with them on a regular basis. The processor and the integrated sound card just cannot handle FruityLoops beyond very basic beats and synth lines. Anything more than that, it starts fuzzing out and it sounds terrible, and I was even using the stock VST and VSTi pluggins, nothing downloaded.

If you need something that is portable, lots of battery life, and can handle most basic programs, this is definitely the computer for you.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Size, Decent Performance

Pros: Surprisingly fast with Atom CPU, 3 USB 2.0 Ports, great battery life, SD Card Reader, good sound for the price, 160GB SATA drive, will play some games.

Cons: Supports max of 2GB RAM only, GMA 950 Graphics, integrated webcam is low quality, but thats what you expect, some drivers for vista are a bit hard to find. I have noticed that it runs a bit hot when im multitasking etc, but thats not a huge issue, i do wish it had built in bluetooth, Atom N270 has disabled 64-bit register

Other Thoughts: I bought this machine when it was $299.99 and i still think it was more than worth it. I absolutely love it. I was looking for a secondary machine, so I bought it. I occasionally watch videos, runs iTunes flawlessly. I upgraded to 2GB of memory to run vista better than with just 1. Many games can be played with proper configuration. I also write VB, C\C++, ASM on this machine and it does it without a hitch. I plan on upgrading to a higher performance hard drive with bigger cache, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This replaced my Desktop (2.83Ghz Quad Core/8GB Ram/260GTX) I decided I didn't use my desktop enough. Sold it for parts and purchased this for only $260. Going from an overclocked 4GHz quad core to a 1.6ghz single core processor wasn't that bad. If you know how to take care of your operating systems then both my machines practically ran basic tasks at the same speed. I use this as my main desktop and for portability. I hook it up to my 1680x1050 resolution monitor when I am at home, runs it with only very little slow down. 8.9" Screen size is fine for internet sites. Keyboard is fine for most typing. I received about 40WPM on a typing test on this keyboard and only about 60WPM on a full sized keyboard, not much slower.

Hard Drive has plenty of space, but I dont need to tell any of you how much space 160GB is. I believe its a Seagate 5400RPM. Read/Write Speeds are around 50-70 MB/s. Not loud.

Speakers are decent (Realtek Chip). On the bottom so not ideal for when in your lap.

Cons: Screen resolution (not size) gets a little crowded for certain applications.. but mostly its fine. This would not be remedied by going for a 10" version as those resolutions are still 1024x600 pixels. For my eyes, everything is easy enough to read even with the default DPI settings.

I am a little disappointed with how badly it plays Youtube and online videos. I think the efficiency of flash players are to blame and not the EEE, however it is still annoying that it cannot play an HD youtube video without lagging.
Normal and High Quality (HQ) videos on youtube play fine for the most part.
It seems to play video files much better though.

Fan kicks on to high speeds even though the cpu isnt that hot. It got very annoying. I started using a software called "EEECTL" which now controls the fan speed at much more reasonable sound levels. Obviously any sound this thing can produce is less than the sound my desktop made.

Other Thoughts: The Pros much outweigh the cons.

Pros continued: Gaming front: I am able to play many a good games without any hitch. This thing is fully able to play Halo, GTA 3, GTA Vice City, N64 emulators, GBA emulators and obviously any other retro games.

Notes:
When using as my desktop I hook it up to a USB Hub which is connected to a Keyboard, External HDD, External DVD and a mouse. I also Hook it up to my 20" LCD monitor and the audio up to my stereo system.

Also, I installed 2gb of DDR2 ram into this when i got it. Not sure if all of it is even being used.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Netbook

Pros: Great screen. There is about a half inch bezel as opposed to the full inch around my Acer Aspire One's screen.
Feels really sturdy.
The trackpad is better than the one on my AAO 8.9".
Great battery life.
Power plug is located on the back of the netbook.

Cons: Keyboard is a lot smaller than the one on my AAO. It makes typing kind of difficult. The right side of the keyboard seems especially small.
Asus went out of their way to make sure their icons were hard to remove off the desktop. They also did other things to make sure that their desktop/user interface were unique/large sized.

Other Thoughts: I love this computer. I just wish that Asus installed XP and left the UI tweaks out of it.
This computer is amazing. It has a lot of power for being so portable. The extended battery is very convenient.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's cute, It's powerful!

Pros: -big letters on the keyboard
-compensation for lack of screen resolution w/bundled ACPI drivers
-built in camera
-lots of features for such a small size!
-love the 2gb memory upgrade and 160gb SATA HDD
-love the 533 DDR2 FSB
-no dead pixels yet
-very speedy laptop for everything except games, High-def, video editing.
-It is pretty good for sound editing and DJ software like Traktor Pro!!! I get 23ms latency with a cheapo sound card!
-good for photo editing.
-onboard speakers sound decently louder than my last 14.1" laptop

Cons: -Mouse buttons wear away and become uncomfortable to click anything
-left shift key is small and awkward
-glossy finish on top
-onboard sound card is almost useless to me. but hey, it works.
-Very slow sound card. I can barely use it with ASIO drivers

Other Thoughts: I wish computers didn't have glossy anything. especially glossy LCD monitors. when they are used outside you can't see and are almost blinded. they get dirty and ugly so quick as well. Attention DJs! If you need a cheap laptop for gigging that can be replaced easily, get this one! I hope that in the future ASUS eee PC line will have a line-in jack built-in and a better sound card

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Extremely small, perfect for carrying around campus and taking notes in class. I used this at school for a semester and it did the job wonderfully. Handles web surfing and IM just fine as well.

Cons: There's a bit of a learning curve with the keyboard, and after six months I'm not used to the right shift key being where it was. Given the size of this thing though I'm not 100% sure where else you'd put it, really.

Other Thoughts: Windows XP works fine with 1GB of RAM, but with RAM being so cheap you might as well go ahead and order a 2GB stick along with the laptop. Both the RAM and the hard drive are underneath the same panel, so changing parts out is extremely easy.

For what I use this for, a 160GB hard drive is way overkill. I swapped it out for the 80GB drive in my PS3 and I'm sure that'll still be too much. Whatever, just means I don't have to upgrade my PS3 drive now. :)

5 out of 5 eggsEEE 900ha

Pros: This thing is tiny! Keyboard took 20mins to get used to. 4.5hours battery life, probably longer if I tried harder. You will get 5 if you don't do anything, but whats the fun in that, lol. Reasonable speed. Hibernates/wakes up in like 6 seconds or so. Plays 720p videos! HDD is partitioned into 80gb and 60gb + 20gb of hidden recovery things, making dual booting anything reaaaaally easy. Overall I love it, would buy it again.

Cons: Glossy exterior, XP sticker peeled off on the 2nd day (not that I really care), touchpad buttons are loud, but not too bad. There is a bit of flex in the keyboard, not too bad though. KMplayer doesn't play smoothly if the power profile is set to 'Max Battery' but it works fine on 'Always On'. Went down $20 after I bought it, still worth what I paid though.

Other Thoughts: With 2gb of Kingston ram, this thing is surprisingly fast. I mean, its not a desktop, but for its size its great. Dual booting XP and Ubuntu 9.04 netbok remix, ubuntu is kinda slow/the battery life is worse, but I usually boot XP. Everyone asks you where you got it. It's like the three wolf moon shirt of computers.

Newegg rocks!!!!!
