Pros: Great value for your money when you consider no M$ tax, 2GB of ram and a decent video card. Some other owners have reported a somewhat spongey <sp? keyboard flex on the left side for some keys, mine has no such issue, I imagine its luck of the draw. The screen is vibrant and crisp and NO dead pixels. Given the ubiquitous nature of USB options for peripherals you can pretty much connect anything you want to this little baby. It sure is light and even feels sturdy and well built, ASUS chose a quality plastic in my estimation. If a fully featured laptop was a 9/10 and a feature packed netbook was a 3/10 I'd say this baby rates about a 6/10 comparatively. In a nutshell its the best of both worlds.
Cons: None that I can think of really. Yes the battery life is a little shorter than other netbooks but this is a trade-off for the chipset and gpu. Not really a concern for me
Other Thoughts: If this thing does'nt meltdown on me inside 2yrs i'll be a happy camper. What can you say about NewEgg that hasn't been said before? They are simply a stand up company that take care of their customers and I can say that first hand. Big shout out to Joan C. of NewEgg imho you went out of your way to help me resolve an issue and I'm very grateful to you, you are a good egg (yah I know but I couldn't help myself) :)READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: None that I can think of.
