9/7/2011 UPDATE:
Since people seem to still be getting some use from my review, I have added a few updates:

64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium?
YES, mine did come with the 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium version of Windows.
NOTE: If you get a netbook that has Windows 7 Starter on it, you will not have the desktop themes functionality available to you. I learned this the hard way when I got my 1005HA netbook. Not too big of a deal, but I did miss having all those nice themes. ASUS has a make-shift solution for this, but it requires manual intervention. Now that I have Windows 7 Home Premium, I can enjoy desktop themes once again!

USB v3.0?
YES, mine did come with one USB 3.0 port on the right side (the blue colored USB port). There is also another USB 2.0 port on the right, and one on the left (three ports in all). One of the two USB 2.0 ports allows you to charge a device even when the netbook is powered off and the AC adapter is connected. You can even configure it to charge another device with just the battery alone and the netbook turned off. A nice feature to have if you travel and find yourself in a bind with a low cell phone battery!

Accepts 8GB of RAM?
YES, mine did accept an 8GB memory upgrade kit! I installed the Corsair 8 GB DDR3 Laptop Memory Kit CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9, which is about $83. The memory that initially came with the 1215B was: hynix 2GB 1Rx8 PC3 - 10600S - 9 - 10 - B1
Be sure to get PC3-10600 compliant memory, NOT the

-- Upgrade Update (7/27/11) --:
As promised I got the crucial m4 SSD and 8gb of ram installed. The perfect word to describe performance is snappy. The upgrades don't make the 1215b a performance laptop by any means, but all the usual tasks that one would use a netbook for are quick to load, quick to respond, and a pleasure to use. Installation was easier than expected, especially considering you basically have to dismantle the 1215b to access the hard drive. The biggest speed difference is in start up and shut down time. Cold startups take 30 seconds for Windows to load and I haven't even make any modifications to see if that can be faster. Remember this is 30 seconds on a netbook processor! Shut down is 6.7 seconds!

The upgrades make this system the most expensive netbook I have ever heard of, and there is quite a bit of completion our there in the $600 range, but I honestly can say because I do the basics a lot and never really need a powerful processor expect for HD video I prefer to have this expensive but portable netbook with great battery life as opposed to any other more powerful laptop out there.

-- Update (7/20/11) --:
=============================================================================================================================
I have had the 1215b for a few months now and I want to address an issue that has arisen for me.
I said in my original review that I did not have the track pad issues many people have mentioned. Well, about a week ago I started experiencing problems. I did a little digging and the problem stems from the poor placement of a pad under the track pad which is interfering with an electrical relay and frankly doesn't even need to be there.

Pros

-Came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
-E-350s processing power and better than average graphics performance
-Overall great looking laptop
-USB 3.0 port
-USBCharge+, an application that allows you to charge devices through USB even when the laptop is off
-6 hours of battery life
-Island-style keyboard with Home, PgUp, PgDn, and End (Keys missing from the similarly spec'd Dm1z)

Cons

-Typical bloatware that you find on a lot of PCs
-Trackpad is a single rocker bar that is noticible loud
-Harddrive came partitioned very oddly, it can be fixed quite easily in Windows 7 but the end user shouldn't have to worry about this.
-Charging adapter doesn't always charge laptop on first plug in.
-Trackpad unresponsiveness at time

I am overall satisfied with my purchase, but it is mainly because I was able to fix a lot of the Cons I had with this laptop when I first purchased it. First I will focus on the Pros.

I was consider Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to be a plus because with a smaller sized form-factor, it rarely has the horsepower to utilize the 64-bit version of the operating system. The first Pro is directly related to the second Pro, the processor, is actually really good. I had Google Chrome running with about 12 Tabs open, looking at a movie trailer in 720p with Microsoft Office applications running in the background and it handled the load just fine. The movie trailer played at a respectable 28 fps without a single drop in frames, a task your typical Single-Core or Dual-Core Intel Atom CPU could not do.

The USB 3.0 is a welcoming addition for future-proofing if not anything else. USB 3.
