Pros:

Overall I am very impressed with this notebook. With the original hard drive it was fairly responsive and scored a modest 3.2 with the Windows 7 self assessment test. Being limited by the processor speed. Aero works great and the different settings provided by Power4Gear for power savings have some nice setting changes to ensure you get the battery life you want.

Express Gate is great and boots up very quickly, but needs the option to change the resolution easily (it is at an awkward, non-native resolution. Probably 800x600.) There are some files to modify in order to change the resolution, but the average user will not feel like diving into the linux files to adjust resolution.

Visual Studio 2010 and Zend Studio run quickly, in part thanks to me installing the Intel SSD.

The keyboard has a great feel to it and is fairly quiet.

Cons:

The back corners where the display bends up have some very sharp corners and I imagine will eventually damage my laptop case, but I just have to be sure to put the front of the laptop first instead of the back side.

Way too much bloat-ware installed. Uninstall doesn't remove all the shortcuts. However an initial clean install remove all except the general Asus stuff (Power4Gear, Express Gate, FastBoot, etc..)

Other Thoughts:

I installed the Intel 80GB SSD and the laptop works just great. I had to attach an external USB drive to use the recovery DVD that came with the computer.

Processor usage gets quite high when watching 720/1080 flash videos. Not a con since the videos play smoothly for the most part.
