So I bought this little netbook knowing what to expect, as a previous owner of a Dell Mini 9 and as a current owner of a MacBook Pro I was looking for something cheap with good battery life and not terribly powerful.

The Good:
The battery life really did have about 5-6 hours while web browsing and working offline
HDMI Out is great, put it out to the 50" tv without a problem, even the audio feeds through
Pretty quick for the little tasks
The 93% keyboard seems much bigger than most netbooks I've tried out in the past
The dedicated video card, you won't find many netbooks that have this
Higher definition screen, also something you won't see on many netbooks, most are 600 pixels high, this one is 768, quite a difference

The Bad:
The 93% keyboard while still bigger than most is still a little cramped for me, but I'm a big guy
The 1GHz processor lags a little at times
Even with the 1GHz dual core and the video card Netflix and Hulu had their issues. I tried streaming both through HDMI and there was quite a bit of stuttering, more so on Netflix than Hulu, this can be blamed on Netflix and MS Silverlight more than anything because it lacks hardware decoding, hopefully Silverlight 5 will solve this problem soon
Windows 7 Starter, really!
The multitouch while nice doesn't perform great, especially when compared to the MacBook, two finger scroll kinda works but mine always skipped down the page a lot the first time you scroll with the two fingers. Also, the touch area of the touchpad was not 100%, having corner tap functionality and vertical and horizontal scroll bands only works well when you can actually tap the corners and sides. The surrounding 1/8-1/4" of my touchpad was not sensitive pretty much all the way around.

-ADM C-50 ACU is surprisingly fast.
-Multi-Touch Pad
-HDMI Output
-3 USB ports
-6 cell battery (lasts about 7.5 hours of moderate use)
-Extra Large Keys on Keyboard

-Windows 7 STARTER (I had to upgrade to premium. Just to give you a picture of how limited it is: You cant even change the desktop background) This was probably the biggest con.
-Only 1 gig of ram (I upgraded to 2gb for $20)
-No Bluetooth
-Only one speaker

Summary: I would recommend this Netbook for anyone who does a lot of traveling (as it is very light and thin). Obviously you aren't going to be able to do serious gaming or video editing on this machine but for web surfing or typing a document, this Netbook is an affordable solution.

Absolutely pure junk. This netbook is barely capable of performing its basic function: browsing the internet. All the search engines sites take forever to load. Youtube takes forever to load. takes forever to load. Opening folders, creating folders, basic computer functions are super slow. My iPhone 3GS is faster at loading pages than this. 1G of RAM, sounds a lot, but 256 MB goes to video memory and you have a recipe for a useless netbook. Skip the netbooks and go back to laptops. If you insist on something small, get an iPad.
