Pros: Great portability. I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix and with my 3G service I am on the internet almost anywhere.
Very well thought out product.
Touchpad is easy to use, has two finger scroll, very easy to use. Thought I would have to pack along a mouse (I usually hate touchpads), but this one works fine.
I am getting a little older, and the vision isn't what it used to be, but the screen is still large enough for me to see just fine.
Cons: The sound from the speakers is pretty lame, but I really expected that. If you want good sound, plug in some ear phones.
Other Thoughts: Battery life is very good. I used the netbook on and off for a couple days without re-charging. Similar use with other laptops required daily charging.
If you want portable, and don't need a power house laptop and aren't wedded to (ugh) windows, this is great.
Pros: Works great with linux. I am using the 2.6.24 kernel, and built the kernel with:
No external drivers required, although you do need the firmware file rt73.bin installed into /lib/firmware
Should work with any distro that has the rt2x00 drivers in the kernel
Cons: The ralink driver wouldn't build, problems with the Makefile and Extra CFLAGS. Not much of a con, since the kernel drivers are definitely the way to go.
Other Thoughts: Also works with the serial monkey driversREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: A little bigger than most mini itx cases. Easy to install a normal dvd-rw. Removing the power supply makes installation of all the components pretty easy.
Cons: No 5 pin sata power connector, only 4 pin molex. Had to buy an adapterREAD FULL REVIEW
