This netbook has the footprint of an iPad, but it is about an inch thick at the thickest point. I thought the tapered design would be a hindrance, but it actually makes the netbook easier to pack away in my backpack. You will want a case for it because it looks like it will easily pick up scratches and dents if left to tumble around in a crowded bag.

As a result of the high performance features of this netbook, the battery life suffers a bit. I can easily get 6 hours when only browsing the internet and doing office work, but if I watch videos I get about 2.5 hours. A word of warning: don't let flash apps sit idle in the background, they will drain the battery.

The ten inch screen is bright and clear. It has a matte finish which is superior to the glossy screens so commonly used because they look good on the sales floor. The screen could stand to be more evenly backlit. The unevenness is more pronounced in dark applications (and movies) and won't be noticeable in bright rooms or with most desktop applications. The resolution is adequate for most web sites and office 2007 can be displayed with no issue (over-sized ribbon and all). If you are an older individual, you may need reading glasses to read the screen since the fonts do look a little small.

The keyboard and touchpad are among the standout features of this netbook. The keyboard has a visually appealing chicklet design and is adequately sized for comfortable typing with my average sized hands. I came to this netbook from a desktop replacement laptop with a very large keyboard and the learning curve has been short. The touchpad is also much more spacious than that of competing netbooks and is about 3.5 inches diagonally (about the size of an iPhone screen).

Just got this netbook a few days ago and I must say, out of the box, it's pretty disappointing. First off, Windows 7 Starter. This computer was not meant to be used with this extremely limited os. You're definitely going to want at least Home Premium in order to get Optimus (automatic graphics switching) working. Second, only 1gb of ram. I don't think I really need to explain why this is a shortcoming.

Good thing I already had my Windows 7 upgrade from my old laptop. First thing I did was a clean install of Windows 7 Premium in order to get rid of all the asus bloatware and get Optimus working. First of all, this computer plays excellent video out of the box. You'll read lots of hardcore PC people grumbling about the exclusion of a true HD screen, but I honestly saw no problem with the current screen, considering how small it is.

Installed Firefox (my web browser of choice) and kept getting hang ups on this computer. Firefox has become quite a resource hog over the years (this is the price you pay for top-notch extensions). Decided that I really needed to upgrade the ram on this to its max (2gigs). Installed the new ram and now this computer is absolutely great. Did a non-scientific test run with the battery with normal web browsing and quite a bit of video watching. The battery lasted about 6-7 hours before hitting 5% capacity.

Installing the extra ram was a real problem, in my opinion. There's a little plug on the bottom and under it is a single screw to get access to the ram. It all looks nice and simple at first, but then you spin the screw and realize that only that one edge with the screw pushes up. You can pull at the little door but it doesn't budge.

First of all, I do like this netbook. I got it for my wife and she is very happy with it. For such a small device it is rather powerful and seeing HD videos up to 1080p run (almost) flawlessly from a netbook is rather impressive.

So, why only three stars? Simply put, it is too expensive. I did not even bother to switch on the computer before changing the 1GB memory module for a 2GB Crucial one (the one recommended by amazon). Fortunately that worked fine for me but I read other reviews where this exact combination of computer and memory module caused problems. Finding the right RAM for a netbook does not seem to be as straightforward as it should be, regardless of manufacturer. Furthermore, I immediately wiped the hard disk clean of the useless Windows 7 Starter edition and Asus' bloat ware. The hard disk comes partitioned in four partitions. Tow visible ones for Windows and data and two hidden ones for Asus' proprietary little OS and the recovery partition. The proprietary OS is supposed to save you time to boot Windows if you just want to e.g. check quickly something on the internet. However, it is way too slow and the partition just a waste of space. So I repartioned the hard disk and put Windows 7 Professional on the computer in order to get Optimus running - one of the main reasons to get an ION netbook. Again I got lucky because it worked without a problem. But there are countless threads on various forums on the internet of people that can't get Optimus working on this computer after installing a real Windows 7 distribution.

In Europe this computer is optionally sold with Windows 7 Home Premium and 2GB RAM, i.e. at a slightly higher price tag you get a computer that works fine out of the box.
