    October 28 (most recent update June 23, 2010 below)

    I received the ASUS EEE PC Seashell 1005HA-PU17-BU 10.1-Inch Blue Netbook two days ago. My initial impression is that this is a great computer. Below are more specific comments.

    1) OS: Windows Starter
    Runs really well without any problems. I think another 1GB of RAM would make it faster, but I can easily live without it for my main purpose of taking research notes, writing papers, and using the Internet.

    I have not had a chance to try out all of my software yet, but Windows Office 2007, bLADE Wiki, Chrome, and other programs I frequently use work just fine. Windows 7 Starter does run more than three applications. I have four open now.

    Thankfully, I had no difficulty enabling language support (IME) for Japanese and Chinese. In general, I have also found some things a little more intuitive than XP or Vista. At this point, I see absolutely no reason to buy an upgrade.

    The inability to change your desktop image is a mean-spirited marketing decision that I hope Microsoft will reconsider. Not only that, but the wallpaper makes it look like you have a crack or dust on your screen. You can get around this and speed up your computer a little bit in the process. In your start menu right-click on computer, select properties, advanced system settings, performance, and "Adjust for best performance." Your background will be solid blue.

    2) Screen
    Surprisingly crisp and clear. Yes, it is small, but so is the computer :)

    3) Keyboard
    I have no trouble at all typing on it.

    Color: Blue Verified Purchase
    UPDATE...IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PROSPECTIVE BUYERS READING ALL THESE REVIEWS: This ASUS model has only been out since the end of October. Many negative reviews of this product mention owning it for much longer and so must not be about this exact machine.

    Relevant context for this review: This is my first netbook and I have been a strong Mac OS convert for the past 2 and 1/2 years. I swore I would never purchase anything with a Windows OS again, but bought this because the price, size, and battery life were what I needed. I have the Blue one.

    BOTTOM LINE: I have been playing with my netbook for three weeks (as of this Nov 23rd update to this review) and can say that it is everything I expected.


    - Battery life is incredible and recharges in an hour (max): I did some light web-surfing for a couple hours one night and had 82% of battery left when I was done. UPDATE: I watched a 45 min. episode of Mad Men that I downloaded and it only used up about 10% of the battery. Pretty awesome.

    - Size is great: about the size of a hardcover novel.

    - Weight is much better: half the weight of my MacBook Pro, the same weight as my girlfriend's MacBook Air.

    - Price point is right: I got mine for $387 and feel like anything $400 or less is a fair price for what you get.

    - Screen is small, crisp, and clear: Larger would be easier to see, but small is the point of a netbook, right?

    - Windows 7 Starter is adequate: Not sluggish, even with 4 windows open at a time. I'm still getting re-familiarized with the Windows 7 file structure and how you install applications, etc, but that's not a fault of Windows 7.

    Color: Blue Verified Purchase
    ************ Jan 3,2010 Update *************

    I've had the machine for 10 weeks now after ordering it on release day (Oct 22) with 1-day shipping. I've taken it on several long trips and have been taking it with me daily to work. My battery life is great, approaching the rated 10.5 hour time under medium load. The battery also does a great job of holding a charge when the machine is not powered up from snooze mode for a week.

    I recently got a bluetooth mouse for Christmas (Logitech V470 Bluetooth Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks (Blue)) in a matching blue to the netbook. I don't use it for short projects, but it works great when I do sit down for a longer work project. Right now, I'm sitting on my sofa with the mouse on the armrest and everything is great.

    I also just upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium using one of three licenses from a family upgrade pack (no longer in print). I had found workarounds for the starter edition limitations that annoyed me and put up with most of the other limitations. Asus released a utility to allow the changing of the desktop wallpaper (an annoyance I mentioned in my original review below.) The lack of some of the fancy transparent Aero effects didn't really bother me. Another limitation is not really a limitation: you cannot create a Win7 homegroup with the starter edition. Since this is a new feature of Win7, you need to have another Win7 machine on your LAN to get any use of a homegroup. That other machine can create the group and your starter edition machine can then join it. It's only a real issue if you have multiple starter edition machines and nothing at a higher level.
