Pros: -Low cost, for under $300 you recieve a fully functional machine that can do anything a casual user or a user who has a desktop (like me) for high-power stuff could possibly want.
-Runs cool. After normal use, my previous mobile (a Toshiba Satellite M55-S135) would be almost too hot to handle.
-While smaller than normal, the keyboard isn't that much smaller, and is easy to acclimate to for a hunt n' peck typist like myself.
-Lightweight. I can walk around with this like I'm carrying a small dinner plate.
-Splashtop instant boot OS included. I don't have to boot the included Windows 7 if I just want to get on the net. It even has its' own separate power button.
Cons: -The mousepad feels off. The button, while still a two-button configuration, feels unwieldly to operate.
Other Thoughts: As any netbook user will tell you, if you buy a product like this expecting to run Maya while watching a blu-ray and work on your finances while vid-chatting with your brother overseas and remoting to his desktop to give him tech support, you are in for a big dissapointment. This is perfect for what a Netbook does.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Upgraded to this from an old Radeon XP 1500. What a difference this little card makes (well, maybe not little compared to my old card) Went from running titles like Spore and Command and Conquer 3 at their lowest settings to their highest settings without missing a beat.
Cons: Seem to be having problems streaming some internet videos in fullscreen, so -1 egg. Probably just need to tweak the settings some more though.
Other Thoughts: It ain't a crime if you don't get caught.READ FULL REVIEW
