I've been using this Asus Netbook for about a month now, so I thought I'd give my initial impression of this device to help future buyers make a informed decision.
First of buying a netbook was not my first choice, as I already have a 17" Toshiba laptop. However recently a friend/fellow grad student of mine purchased an Ipad and was showing it off. Out of jealousy I decided to get a tablet as well, but after reading about them online, got diverted to purchasing a netbook instead. I wanted a mobile computing device(since I walk or bike to school, mall, downtown etc, and a 17" laptop is just too heavy) on which to check mail do minor document editing, maybe play a game or too. For these reasons a netbook seemed a nicer, more productive alternative than a tablet. Now that you know the reason I bought this let me get to the pros and cons of the Asus netbook.

Pros
1. Its light and small. I had a HP mini back in 2008(which I gave to my sister) and it was at least 35 percent more weighty. The Asus could even fit in my jacket pocket. I feel that it is much easier and less delicate to carry than a tablet.
2. Asus Brand name. Asus is the most reliable company when it comes to making laptops. It even tops Apple in reliability(really! google it), even though all laptops seem to be made by Foxxcon(?).
3. I installed Ubuntu Linux Distro on it and everything worked without any additional work.
4.The battery life. Currently I can squeeze anywhere between 3 to 4 hours out of the battery. However this will go down as the battery ages.
5. Colors. I like the color choices that come with netbook. I went for the blue one.
6. The hardware seems to be robust.

The computer runs slow out of the box because of all the bloatware/adware/nagware. As soon as the computer boots, get rid of the bloatware. Go to start > control panel > uninstall programs, to remove bloatware. The Trend antivirus is the most annoying, throwing up a nag screen every 2 minutes. Next most annoying is Bing, a Microsoft data mining browser toolbar. Be sure to uninstall Bing before installing Firefox to avoid Bing parasitizing Firefox. On the control panel uninstall page there is a turn off features option. Use the turn off features option to remove additional Windows baggage.

Program updaters slow the computer. At the default settings, the updaters run in the background and check for updates, download, and install continuously. Adobe, Asus, and Microsoft are the primary offenders. Asus updaters are notorious for crashing computers. The Microsoft updater had the bad habit of trying to update programs I had already uninstalled, and adding shortcuts to my desktop. Updaters are marketed as a convenience, but have similar properties to spyware.

To improve performance, turn off the updaters, or remove them through control panel. I removed almost every program with "update", "Microsoft", "Asus", and "Adobe" in the title. That ended the periodic freezes.

The included starter version of Microsoft Office severely slows the internet connection by downloading advertising videos. The software also records websites visited in order to target advertising. I removed Office to improve my internet speeds and protect my privacy.

Memory is cheap. From a cost/benefit standpoint a memory upgrade is almost mandatory.

Okay, so I have only had this computer for like a week so not a whole lot I can say right now. I got it out of the package (which arrived within three days of ordering) and yes it is small, but cute. VERY light, like the size of a Stephen King novel and very portable too. Anyways, setup was simple, took about 10 minutes for the OS to install and boot for the first time. It found my WiFi immediately and I just had to enter the password to connect. Very easy to install programs, but I only installed Firefox and Advanced System Care at this point. Comes with Word but it is the starter edition, which is basic functionality of word. I freelance write so the basic Word is good for me.

It seems to work like a charm, the webcam is nice and pretty good quality for a .3 MP. Took a couple pictures and they came out looking pretty good. The battery life is pretty good I am ranging about 3 hours to 3 1/2 hours, which is better than the 20 minutes I was getting on my previous but still useable computer. Screen size is just right for me since I am just using this computer for writing and emails and such. I have my bigger laptop for movies and other videos. I am keeping this one relatively clean and not installing much at this point.

Really nice overall, I can't complain too much except the background can't change on Starter OS. I choose to use Starter then maybe I will upgrade later on but really no need right now. I can live with the blue screen as the background. Typing is really easy, especially if you are used to smaller and more compact keyboards. Not a big fan of the touch pad so I hooked up my mouse. Plugged it in and it recognized it right away.

Definitely a must-buy for anyone looking for something small and portable but with good programs.
