Just a quick few comments. I bought a 1430Z (from another vendor, where it was cheaper at the time) mainly because:

o It has more screen pixels than 10.1" netbooks do
o CPU benchmarks I found on the web were much better than for typical Atom processors
o It's considerably lighter and smaller than 13.3" notebooks
o It comes with more memory than typical netbooks do

My intention (as with all my computers) was to run Ubuntu Linux, dual booting occasionally into Windows.

My impressions so far:

Pros:

o Nice compact form factor. It's even a tad lighter than the spec; mine weighs just under 3 lbs
o Ubuntu 10.10 works. But I had to blacklist 2 modules (intel_ips and acer-wmi).
o External VGA gives you a full extended desktop (at least in Ubuntu, haven't experimented in Windows): I get 1366x768 on the notebook and 1680x1050 on a 22" external monitor at the same time. This has not worked well or at all on other notebooks I've had in the past.
o Applications respond snappily -- this is subjective of course. Video is good. I also run my own CPU-intensive simulation benchmark on all my computers to compare them. The 1430Z (Intel U5600 CPU) is about 26% slower than a desktop with an AMD 5000+ CPU, 18% faster than a notebook with an Intel SU7300 CPU, and 11% faster than a notebook with an Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz CPU.

Cons:

o Battery life is OK but unexceptional -- this is only subjective since I haven't measured it. But battery life has never been a high priority for me. For all my laptops it has dropped precipitously after a year or so, no matter how impressive it may have been when new.

I got this Notebook for my wife, and I checked some specification before purchase :
-CPU architecture SandyBridge 32nm, Intel relased it in Jan 2011, very low power consumption -18W.
-3GB latest DDR 3 memory, upgradable to 8GB - more then enough
-wireless 802.11 b/g and latest n
-Windows 7 64bits
-very good HD screen resolution
It is more powerfull then most devices in this size, has around double power then Atom CPU, and pretty fast wireless internet,
with my D-link Extreme 655 router in the basement I got 15Mbps net speed on first floor , (19Mbps when connected with Cat 6 wire).
When I run it first time the speed when not connected to the power cord was slower - some power saving settings, after adjusting it in the Laptop and in the router, I got full speed.
No problem watch YouTube HD (I have very fast Comcast Internet), and streaming my movies over network.
Then we are very happy with it , my wife love it how it looks like and because it is very light.

I needed to replace my 6.5 lb laptop for travelling. I didn't like the performance and cramped keyboard of the netbooks. I needed it for photo storage and processing plus email.

I'm glad ACER just released the AS1430.

The screen and keyboard are much more useable than the 10.1 netbooks. The screen and 1.3MP HD Webcam (1280 x 1024) are higher resolution than the netbooks.

It really isn't much more cost than a netbook when you compare them. Most netbooks only have Windows Starter. To upgrade it to Home Premium 64 bit would be $80. Most netbooks come with only 1GB and is only upgradeable to 1 or 2GB. The ACER comes with 3GB upgradeable to 8GB. Most netbooks come with 250 or smalller GB. The ACER has a 320 GB.

Despite the specs from ACER, the ram is upgradeable to 8GB. I got the Crucial CT2KIT51264BC1067 8GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 (4GBx2) for $84.99 from Amazon. It took 15 minutes to replace the RAM. The bottom cover is held by six screws and a bunch of friction clips. You should be gentle in taking it off, because it looks flimsy. The additional memory makes it boot up faster and quicker when multiple windows are open.

The only negative is battery life is only 4.5 hrs vs 8-9 for the netbooks, but it is enough to play a couple of movies on the airplane.

I really like this computer.

I recently bought this notebook because I needed a highly portable computer I could carry around at university and work on papers and research between work, class, and other appointments. So far I've been impressed and more than happy.

Pros:
--I considered buying a 10" netbook because I was concerned the 11.6 would not be small, portable, or light enough for my purposes. Turns out, this baby is quite small (a tad bit smaller than the keyboard on a regular sized laptop) and at roughly 3 lbs, very light. I haven't tested portability, but it fits perfectly in my bucket-style purse, messenger bag, and rolling carry-on, with plenty of room left over.
--Resolution is crisp, very much high def.
--Fast start up of Windows and other software (though a tad bit slower than my 4 GB 15" Gateway laptop).
--Great multitasking. Runs like a charm with Word, Mozilla, Winamp, and Adobe open all at once.
--Speaker quality is good, though of course not the best, as the speakers are small. Headphone sound quality is fabulous.
--Youtube videos and Netflix play great, no hitches whatsoever, though of course the smaller screen size makes for a smaller movie picture. Picture resolution, as already mentioned, is quite sharp.
--Comes with the full version of Windows 7, as opposed to the starter version of 10" netbooks.
--All the great qualities other users have already pointed out.

Neutral but of Note:

--The keyboard takes some getting used to, as the keys seem slightly smaller than normal. They're also flat, for those of you who like some definition to your keys. Some reviewers had problems with flex, but mine was fine in that category.
