I was worried the 1000 would be too much larger and heavier than the original 700 model, but the difference is barely noticeable. What I DO notice is how much easier it is to type on the 1000's keyboard, and how pleasant it is to be able to view a typical 1024 pixel wide Web page without having to scroll sideways to see all of it.
It's going to be very easy to get used to how much quicker this boots than other computers I use.
Perhaps I'll add more later, but since no one else has reviewed this at all yet, I figured knowing a bit about it would be better than just wondering. So far, I'm extremely pleased. No regrets at all.
Update 8/20/08: Still no regrets, but one problem I'm still having is worth noting: two automatic updates are failing to install. On checking with Asus tech support via Email, I was advised to fix that by updating the BIOS (currently version 0602), but there is no updated BIOS for the 1000/Linux offered yet as of today on the Asus download site. Humorously, another Asus tech suggested using the automatic update to get the BIOS update, even though that failing was the originally-reported problem. If waiting for such early adopter glitches to be worked out bothers you, the 1000H model with Windows XP now has an updated version 1005 BIOS available.
The 1000 uses the same 12V 3A power supply as the Eee PC 900, along with the same 2GB RAM (PC2 DDR2 5300 667MHz, 200-pin). You can set the BIOS to boot from SDHC, offering a hands-off way to run custom distros for your needs. The FUSBi iso-> USB stick installer is the best way to put a different Linux distro .iso image on a USB stick, which can then be booted on your 1000 to install onto either the internal 8GB SSD (there's also a separate 32GB SSD, e.g. this netbook being a '40GB' Linux model), or in my case onto an inexpensive SDHC card. You can access the RAM and 32GB SDD from the bottom of the Eee 1000 by undoing two screws.
Owners of earlier 700- or 900-series Eee PCs will find the OEM Xandros to be more 'refined' with additional features, along with the default inclusion of Sun Microsystem's StarOffice 8, not the Openoffice.org office suite (both are the same, so no worry).
As with other Linux netbooks from Asus, you'll get a full restore DVD with an operating system and all software - unlike the Windoze-based models.
The glossy black cover of this notebook attracts fingerprints (unlike the black surface of the 900), but if you practice good personal hygiene and wash your hands and don't pick your nose, you'll be able to keep your 1000 in pristine shape. A 'skin' can provide some protection, but Asus kindly includes a wonderful soft case with a zipper to protect your new netbook.
I'm truly happy with my purchase and have not found a single problem with this laptop. It will be used in the field during portable high-frequency digital communications operations, running amateur radio operator software for logging and PSK31, while attached to various HF transceivers, such as the SGC SG-2020, Yaesu FT-817, or Small Wonder Labs PSK-20. Synaptic offers installs of nearly 1,000 amateur radio-related software packages, such as gMFSK and xlog. The long battery run-time of the 1000, and the ability to run from 12V 3A power supply is perfect to support battery driven full-day QRP operation!
My biggest concern (or worry) was not having MS Windows and all of its attractive software to go along with me. I had never used Linux, nor did I know much about it. So therefore, it actually scared me. But being the daring individual I am, I bought it anyway!
I am so happy with this little system, I will try my best to list the many features that makes me feel the way I do about the little Asus 1000. The very first thing I noticed about it, is how clear and bright the screen is. It's almost as nice as my high-end Mitsubishi LCD HD television. Next, you can't help but notice how long the battery lasts. Although I have not actually timed it, I know I watched two full movies with my wife while I played with the functions and surfed the internet and I still had about a third of its time left on the battery. Wanting to test the wireless ability, I took it to my wife's place of employment where it captured 18 different WiFi signals, some as far away as 3-4 football fields. It plays music and videos perfectly, even without Windows Media Player. Nothing special to do, just click on a video that was emailed to you and it plays instantly fast. I really like the internet radio system it comes with. While camping at a KOA, I found over 20 stations that I liked, with three outstanding Country stations that I listened to with my head phones on while reading my email from friends. Although it has not yet happened yet, the only problem I can foresee is if someone sends me an email with a .doc file attached, I will not be able to open or read it because I don't have MS Word loaded. But that is fine with me. I use the Word type program to write my emails, being able to use spell check, then simply copy and paste to my email for sending.
Some other little things I really like:
1) Very attractive case.
2) Small and portable; easy to pack away.
3) Super long battery life
4) Bright, clear and HD like screen.
5) Boots from startup in less than 20 seconds.
6) Shuts down in about 10 seconds.
7) Pretty much "Virus" un-impregnable.
8) Case holds Net book, charger, cables, memory sticks and mini-mouse.
9) Long range distance on the WiFi.
10) Bluetooth enabled
11) All programs very user friendly and upgradeable.
12) 3 USB ports
13) Large keyboard for a net book.
14) Easily added addition 1Gig of RAM, making it 2gig.
15) Great unbeatable price & very high quality!!!
