The screen resolution is good, but very angle dependent, and the 10.1 inch screen size is adequate for email, web browsing, looking at photos, etc. Those are going to be the main uses for me, so I am pleased so far. The keyboard is surprisingly easy to use, and I had been concerned about the small size. I find the keys good sized and well spaced.
The battery is lasting about 3 - 3.5 hours from a full charge currently. It is a bit less than advertised.
The computer has an instant on function, which is like a sleep mode, and starts up quickly, both with instant on and from complete shutdown. It is surprisingly fast in opening up web pages and other programs. Windows 7 starter is a pretty basic operating system, but functional and not limiting for me. There is an easy way to change the operating system with a preloaded desktop icon, but I havent't found the need to do this.
Overall, this netbook meets or exceeds my expectations, and I would call it a bargain at $269.
Addendum: I have taken this laptop on multiple trips since owning it, including Europe and South America. It has worked flawlessly. WiFi connections, which are very important in travel, were always detected and connected.Read more ›

The 1GB RAM cannot be upgraded, as it is soldered on the motherboard. This makes a big difference in use. Compared to another netbook upgraded to 2GB, hard drive noise never ceases due to memory swapping activity.
If you value lightweight and thinness (IMHO the raison d'tre for netbooks), also consider the Acer D270 which has a slightly larger power adapter, is slightly thicker with upgradable ("regular") 9.5mm hard drive and RAM. BUT the D270 has a 2 year-old, 3-generation design that is due for a refresh soon. The screen and lid is also glossy. If you can wait for 6 months or so, perhaps an updated Asus X101 (non-H, non-CH variant), Acer, or Toshiba will come along that supports standard mSATA SSDs for best performance, silence, in an even smaller design.
Yesterday it spontaneously went into something called "utility start-up" mode and we contacted customer service for help. After 15 minutes on the phone the computer was still in "utility start-up" and essentially broken so we expected to be able to return it for repair. We were told we would need an "RMA" number but that the ASUS customer service center "system was down." Not very reassuring. We were told to call back "later" for the RMA number but when we did, of course, the system was still "down." We were never given a case number or the names of any contacts and so today we tried to communicate via an online chat which the website offers and waited 10 minutes for someone to respond. We finally emailed the company and hope to hear back soon.
I think it is unfortunate that this computer "died" after only a few weeks of normal use. Worse, however, is the terrible customer service we have encountered so far. I therefore cannot recommend this computer.
