Awesome 10" display
Great almost full-size keyboard
3 USB ports (one of the left, two on the right)
2.6lbs, it's super light
Decent speed for a 1.3Ghz system.
Cruddy video playback (mostly full screen problems)
Horrible Linux video driver support (Intel GMA 500, google it)
Battery life is a little bit lacking compared to other netbooks.
Touchpad needs to be redesigned.
Video Playback Notes/Quality tweak:
As far as the cruddy video playback is concerned, the one thing that I have found to help with this is the usage of a third party media player. A friend of mine turned me on to a player called KMPlayer [...] which comes bundled with just about every video codec ever made, and not to mention that it's portable (it runs off of a thumb drive).Read more ›
The best feature is that this Netbook is completely silent. There is NO fan which means there is no noise. This was the key feature for me because I like recording audio books so using this means I have a 100% silent environment to record my voice.
People complaint about the 1GB or ram but for windows XP that is all you really need. I think they can't add more ram to this netbook because it is passively cooled which means you can just slap in any module with your greasy fingers. I could be wrong. Anyways I would rather have 1GB with xp that runs everything then 2GB with Windows 7.
Another great feature that I only just noticed yesterday is that it has a sealed LCD. All other netbooks and laptops that I have seen have a normal lcd that is very difficult to clean. You know the type. If you touch it it ripples sort of so you become paranoid about cleaning them. This netbook has a solid plastic covering over the screen which means it is easy to clean.
Another important feature for me was that this included the windows XP reinstall CD. That means I can experiment with Android or Ubuntu and then put XP on later if I like. With other companies they don't include an OS cd so if you install another operating system on your computer and don't like it you are in trouble. Also the dell has no bloatware. I looked at the Acer 11.6 and it is full of about 100 useless bonus programs that slow it down. Enjoy doing that with no CD to fresh install.
So if you want a silent pc with an easy to clean screen get this one. Otherwise go with the Asus that has like 8 hour batter life. This one only have about 4 hours on a 3 cell battery.
Update: Wish I could change my rating to 4 stars. I talked to a second tech support guy over at Dell and he was able to walk me through changing the screen settings so that windows don't get cut off. So now I really enjoy this little guy!
