It arrived promptly and well packaged and with all the essential things that one might need. I had it out of the box, booted, and connected to the internet in all of ten minutes. The entire computer seems to be quite well built and I can't see any flaws in the workmanship. I very much like that it runs XP as opposed to Vista. My desktop runs Vista and its always seemed quirky and weird and I'm never totally sure what its going to do next. The XP has worked beautifully and without a single problem. It boots faster than my desktop. It does get warm, like all notebooks, but it isn't uncomfortably hot when its in my lap.
I upgraded the RAM to 2GB, after finally figuring out that after installing the memory stick that the BIOS needed to be updated. It works well.
There's not tons of bloatware preinstalled, but I've jettisoned some of the stuff (namely Adobe) in favor of smaller, lighter freeware. It comes with Microsoft Works and Star Office, both of which claim to be compatible with Microsoft Office, although I haven't totally tested this yet. I'm using Windows Fileshare (free!) software to sync documents and pictures between the two computers. It works well and its been easy to keep the the files on both updated.
As nearly everyone says, the keyboard is quite easy to type on, as its actually pretty spacious. I'm a total touch typist, so having a well laid out keyboard was important. Nevertheless, the right shift key was driving me crazy. I remapped it today with a small piece of software (also free!) called SharpKeys and the right shift and page up are now reversed. (I'll switch the key caps when I figure out how to remove them without breaking them.) I'm now a dangerously fast typist on this machine. I did have to get used to typing without accidentally hitting the trackpad, which made the cursor do crazy things initially, but the learning curve isn't particularly steep. Also, I don't get any of the keyboard "flex" that I hear about. The whole thing seems pretty sturdy to me.
I use the wireless internet at the university and have no complaints about it at all. It always finds networks and I don't have a single internet problem. I haven't used the Bluetooth, as I don't have any Bluetooth devices, so I can't say how that works.
I don't particularly care for the trackpad (the buttons are stiff)and have a notebook mouse that I prefer. I haven't yet figured out how to disable the trackpad, but I've no doubt that some solution exists, somewhere.
I nearly bought the Lenovo S10, as I liked the specs, but truthfully, I am relieved that the ASUS has the 6 cell battery and I don't have to constantly search out electrical outlets. I have the Bluetooth permanently off at this point, but use the wireless quite a bit. I think I get about 5 hours, but haven't conducted any super scientific tests.
Overall, this machine works really well for what I need it for: email, web surfing, word processing, etc. I don't think I'd try to do anything super fancy on it, but that's what my desktop is for. I'm really pleased with this so far!
Update (11/16/08): Just installed a small piece of software called Touch Freeze that disables the touchpad while typing to help avoid the crazily jumping cursor while typing. It works quite well and now I can *really* type on the 1000H!
Overall I currently do not feel I have sacrificed anything to save the $1500 over the same sized VAIO. I won't know for sure for five years but so far so good.
Likes: Inexpensive, XP familiarity and preference, ultra portable, a minimum of 4 hour battery life, quick set up, moderately fast start up, markings on keys readable.
Dislikes: Location of left shift key, difficulty in disabling touch pad (Note: ASUS should have at least a quick button the task bar)
