    Color: Blue Verified Purchase
    Good Stuff:

    - I type thirty or so pages a week between three different computers. The keyboard on this little guy works great for my purposes. I'm 6'3", 280 lb. and yeah, I have big hands. - Minimal bloatware. Took just a couple minutes to remove the stuff I didn't want.
    - Attractive and practical design.
    - It has a good display and decent sound... for a netbook.

    [Edit] As far as sound goes, it depends on what you're listening to. My Baroque Classical and Russian Chant sounds great, as does anything spoken word. My Swedish Death Metal (and anything similar) sounds tinny and weak.

    - While it was no use to me, it came with some basic office programs already loaded. Just one of many things Asus did to try and make this netbook ready to use straight out of the box.
    - At least so far... the battery life is pretty close to what's advertised.

    [Edit] I'm able to get just under eight hours of operation out of it, without turning the screen brightness all the way down or wireless/bluetooth options off.

    [Edit] Swapping out the 1GB Memory stick for a 2 GB Memory stick was easy.

    Bad Stuff:

    - It attracts finger prints like bees to flowers. Get skins/decals/stickers for the outside cover if you're really OCD.
    - Doesn't make coffee.
    - Bulky. The wife has a 1002HA with a 2 cell battery and it is soo slim and strim looking compared to mine. Hers is a half pound lighter too. She still gets 4-5 hours of battery life out of hers even with the smaller battery.


    For the money, it's one of the best netbooks out there. I looked at almost every netbook available and read over 500 reviews before deciding on this one.

    Color: Blue
    I've had my 1000HE for a week now. I bought it with the 2gb of ram and installed the new ram in under 10 minutes, having never done such a thing in my life before. With the new ram, my 1000HE ran both Windows XP and then the Windows 7 beta with ease. I can run iTunes version 8 and Firefox and Microsoft Word at the same time without any problems.

    The blue surface does attract fingerprints, but it's not so noticeable that it bothers me, and I've been consistent (so far) about wiping it clean after every other use.

    The webcam works very well, even for a cheap laptop, and I was able to take reasonably defined pics with it.

    The battery life with my "normal usage" runs about 8 hours, though I haven't put it on power-saving mode to see if that's much longer.

    I use this netbook on the train and haven't had trouble with the volume control in my headphones.

    The trackpad buttons are a tad stiff at first, but mine have loosened just in the past week and are now very comfortable to use.

    I've found that the 1000HE picks up my home's network very easily and the internet speeds transfer very well.

    As for the keyboard, I'm a "proper typist" and was used to the 92 percent size within the first day. The chiclit style is much better, in my opinion, than the old 1000H model or the Acer keyboard.

    I transfer all of my programs and games and movies with a usb flash-drive, so I haven't had any need for an external dvd drive

    All in all a great investment at under 400 dollars, and I'm a college student who scrimps and saves her every penny.

    I have had the Eee PC 1000HE for about a week now, and it has fulfilled my every expectation. Because I hadn't started up the Eee without installing the 2 GB RAM I'd purchased, this review is relevant to those who plan to upgrade, or have already upgraded the RAM in the unit. For those who don't, I will add that it is extremely easy and inexpensive to double the RAM of this netbook. I had never opened a laptop chassis before, and it took all of 5 minutes.

    *Up front, the package is inexpensive. You definitely get the bang for your buck
    *Bright, brilliant screen with an excellent viewing angle.
    *Large, more comfortable keyboard; touch typing is incredibly easy to get used to.
    *Long battery life; I've had mine unplugged for over seven hours without a recharge.
    *Exactly the amount of power and speed that I need from a computer, I'm able to run some of my favorite games (GTA: San Andreas, UT2004, and Neverwinter Nights) without breaking a sweat, edit photos and stream videos through the wireless card.
    *The power-saving hotkeys are really useful. Most of the time I don't notice the difference between 'Power-Saving' mode and 'Super Performace' mode, which means for normal usage I'm saving a lot of battery life.


    *The volume is a bit too low on the speakers, AND when I'm wearing headphones. I've opened up all of the volume adjusters at one point or another, and I can't increase the volume past a certain point. I could imagine this being very irritating on a long bus ride or a plane ride.
    *As really helpful the multi-touch pad is (and it truly is helpful), some of the presets are too closely linked to "scroll up and down". For example, I find myself opening a 'magnifying glass' one moment, and 'zooming out' of a webpage the next.
