I have the Acer Aspire One and the Asus 900HA and have installed memory upgrades on both. Although they are very similar (Atom processor, 160GB HD, 8.9" screen, 1GB RAM installed, Windows XP Home, etc) there are important differences worth mentioning.

(1) Size and weight: Asus wins here. 4-cell Asus is about 1" narrower in both width and height and a little lighter than the 6-cell Acer (the 1" height difference is due to the protruding battery from the back of the Acer). Thickness is about the same.

(2) Screen brightness: Acer wins here. Although the LCD panels are the same size and have the same native resolution the Acer screen is much brighter at max and appears crisper. Also the default Windows icons are much larger on the Asus (icon size can be adjusted using Windows).

(3) Upgrading: Asus wins big here. Remove a bottom panel with two screws from the Asus and you can easily swap out the single 1GB memory module for a 2GB module that costs about $30. You can even swap out the 160GB hard drive for a still larger one. The Acer is another story. It requires total disassembly and careful reassembly (numerous videos and pictorial instructions available on the web) to replace the socketed 512MB module with a 1GB max module. This procedure also negates the warranty - how clever! Some genius at Acer decided to solder 512MB onto the motherboard, thus limiting the max memory to 1.5GB. To add insult to injury, the Acer design team also placed a removable panel on the bottom which opens into an unused cavity. That panel could have been moved or expanded in size to allow easy memory and hard drive access.

(4) Keyboard and touch pad: Acer wins big here. The reason the Acer is about 1" wider is due to a wider keyboard.

Pros: Low Price, Ultra portability, excellent screen resolution and contrast, great performance

Cons: non-full-size keyboard, super-short space bar. (believe it or not, that's all you can be picky about this great product)

Prposed solution for the "cons": external keyboard, mouse, and screen.

This is my third laptop by ASUS. and i have to say, this is the best ASUS yet! It has a 1.6GHz CPU with 1GB of memory. more than enough to run Windows XP and daily applications. for those who are worried if the screen is too smaall, dont worry! it has the same pixel-per-square-inch as a normal 12 inch laptop. normally 12-inch laptops have 1280x800 resolution, while the Eee 900HA has 1024x600. as you can calculate, the ratio of the screen sizes is 4:3, and the ratio in number of pixels is also 4:3. as a result, you get smaller viewing area but the same icon and text size.

as for the keyboard, from typing this review entirely on my Eee 900HA, i have to say the short space bar is really to miss. but i will hook it up to n external monitor, keyboard, and mouse normally. it supports up to 1920x1080 for external monitors via a standard D-SUB connection. so that will be the perfect solution.


the following is my own opinion on why i picked the Eee 900HA over these other commonly compared products:

ASUS Eee 900HA vs. Eee900A vs. Eee904HA vs. Acer Aspire One

Same across all 4 products:
Screen: 8.9" 1024x600'
CPu: Intel Atom 1.6GHz
OS: Windows XP Home (I got SP3 with it)
Connectors: VGA (D-SUB)x1, USB2.0 x3, Ethernet x1, SD Card Reader, headphone and mic.

I purchased this netbook due to the good reviews at amazon. It is a neat little machine that is very portable as indicated by other reviewers. I've had mine for about one week, and have a constant problem with the screen going blank for no reason at all. I have to perform a hard shutdown (holding down the power key). It will reboot fine, but will periodically go blank again, even when it is just sitting still.

There is an eee pc users forum -- apparently many people have this same experience. Many fixes are suggested, but nothing seems to work for most people. I will call asus, but I am not hopeful. Most likely, I will return the unit this week.

I'm not new to netbooks. I started with the Asus 701 just before Thanksgiving 2007. I liked that machine a lot except for two things: the screen, not because of its size but because of its 800x480 resolution, and measley 4GB solid state drive. Asus has the habit of releasing a new model every other week (literally!), but I knew what I wanted, and so I waited. The 900 30G with its 9" screen (8.9" really, as are all 9" netbooks; it's easier to call them 9" than 8.9") and 30 GB hard drive was released early this summer but never reached the U.S. Instead, a few months later, we have the 900HA with its 160 GB hard drive and faster processor. It was worth the wait.

Do you want a 900HA? Maybe, maybe not. There are basically three things to consider: weight, the size of the keyboard, and the configuration of the keyboard.

(1) weight: The 701 weighed about 2lbs. The 900HA weighs about 2lbs 7oz. The 1000H, the next step up, weighs about 3lbs 2oz. I find 2 lbs to be the limit where I don't care if I'm carrying it. Above 2lbs I start to notice it. By 3lbs, it's just a small laptop. If weight is not a major consideration, don't get a 9" netbook. Get a 10", not because of the screen size, but because of...

(2) size of the keyboard: the 900HA's keyboard is tiny! You can find the actual specs on the web. Many people take an instant dislike to it. Many have trouble typing on it. The keyboards on the 10" netbooks are slightly smaller than standard, but not noticeably so. If weight weren't a major consideration, I'd have opted for a 10" machine. To be honest, if I don't adjust within the next week, I may abandon the 900HA for a 1000H.

(3) the configuration of the keyboard: This is subtle but can drive you crazy if you use more than one notebook.
