I purchased this for my wife who is a long-standing Windows user. She loved it from the start because it worked with all her files, booted quickly, and did not hassle her with incessant pop-up reminders. If you want a simple computer for web-surfing then look no further. This computer just works. It works well enough for her to do some data analysis (using R), word processing, web surfing, and email (via gmail) simultaneously.

For those of you who are more technically inclined and interested in linux, I would also recommend the Eee box as a thin client or as a stand-alone machine. I run the ltsp package on Ubuntu for both my research lab at my university as well as at home. Yes I am a true geek. These computers work very well as powerful thin clients or stand-alone computers. Each one runs silently (or almost silently) and generate little to no ambient heat. I was so impressed with my wife's computer that I purchased a few more for my lab at school. Gigabit ethernet and 802.11n make networking fast and efficient. The linux OS is tight (small, fast, efficient, and stable) and works well for most academic, personal, and professional applications. If you are a windows user and prefer XP or Vista, you might find this computer a bit underpowered.

I actually own two of these - a black model and a white one.

1) I have set up the white eee Box as a Windows Home Server (bought a WHS OEM version here on Amazon). This works very well, as the machine is quiet, energy efficient and unobtrusive, i.e., it blends well into our home. I exchanged the internal HD with a bigger disk (which was very easy to do) and added an external 1 terabyte USB HD to have enough space for backups and media files. This works very well for streaming audio files in combination with the Logitech Squeezebox/Slimserver. However, it's a bit underpowered for video streaming.

2) I set up the second (black) machine as a hackintosh for my kids as they use Macs at school. This was quite easy and works well enough for this purpose.

Of course the installed Xandros Linux system may also be suitable for your needs, but I had no use for it. The main reason for buying the Linux version was to avoid buying an additional XP Home license that I did not need.

The size is great - It mounts on the rear of my 17" touchscreen monitor takes up no desktop space. The preloaded Linux software is sufficient if you're not a hard-core programmer. Stable, easy to set up, very quickly. Virtually no noise whatsoever. 4 usb ports for external peripherals are convenient placed on the front and back of the PC. The wireless picked up my network immediately. Only limitation: using [...] instead of MS Word, Excel, and powerpoint. Alternatively, Google has a great spreadsheet program thats fills in the Microsoft Office Void.

Stability, no crashes so far. Happy to work with Linux UI instead of Windows. $[...] Was a great investment for this machine.

This is a great looking computer and it's very quiet. Unfortunately, it's also very slow. My five year-old, low-end, HP laptop is two to four times faster than this machine.

I thought the speed might have been due to the included OS, so I replaced it with the latest version of Ubuntu. Both my old computer and this one are running the exact same version of the software and this machine is still s-l-o-w.

I'm giving it one star because of Asus' abysmal support. The keyboard failed within the first week. Their Customer Service department told me that they would immediately send a new keyboard after I filled out the forms that they faxed.

Two weeks later, no keyboard, so I faxed the forms another time.

After a month of waiting, I called. This time, I was told that I would have to mail the keyboard in for repair. I said "no" and was put on hold.

Then they told me the computer didn't come with a keyboard and that the retailer must have added one of his own. I assured them the keyboard was theirs, that it came in their box, etc.

After another long hold, I was told that even though the computer came with a keyboard, that it was a "bonus" and that Asus was not obligated to repair or replace it.

For obvious reasons, I will never buy another Asus product.

Product update a few months later: The computer randomly started shutting itself down. Believe me, it has an easy life. It's in the open, so it shouldn't be overheating. My mom uses it for email and internet, so not much is being asked of it. Oh yeah... sometimes, it doesn't restart.

I recently bought a MacMini. Frankly, I'm not a Mac fan but there's no denying that it's a wonderful product. It costs twice as much, but at least it works and the Apple Store's support is excellent.

Although I don't know much at all about computers, my husband (who is a comp guru) recommended I pick a small computer and install it myself. Simple!! I've enjoyed it and have my own work space now. I'm fine with it not having Windows installed. It still fulfills all my tech needs.
