First, the unit itself is very well designed. It feels solid and well built, though the screen, when closed, does have a tendency to click the mouse buttons. This is a bit worrisome, but not horrible.
The screen, when open and on, is visually stunning. Graphics are crisp and clear, text is very readable and easy to use. Note that this is a NetBook, and not a full laptop, so you have a much smaller screen (1024x600) which you will need to get used to.
Battery power has been good so far. With WiFi running and apps going I can go for at least 4 hours. My guess is that the 9 hour quote was with WiFi off (which is pretty standard in vendor battery tests).
The hardware is sufficient to run Windows 7 with Aero (the new interface) turned on, including the Aero-Peek task-bar previews and effects. iTunes, Thunderbird, Word 2007 and other apps work smoothly, though video playback will stutter if there are other apps running.
All-in-all, this is a well built system that exceeds other NetBooks in terms of power and function. Keep in mind that you are not getting a laptop here, so trying to run major apps like PhotoShop won't be a pleasant experience for you. The same goes for gaming and other high-processor useage apps. However, the NB205-N230 is remarkably adept at handling email and office applications, remote access to other computers and surfing most web sites.
The construction of this netbook is very solid, it feels far less flimsy and cheap than my 7" eeePC. It is easy to get at the memory, and if you have a set of very small Torx screwdrivers it is as easy as pie to replace the hard drive. I took out the very nice Fuljitsu 250gb drive and replaced it with a WD 640gb notebook drive so I can get all of my movies and music on the unit for possible travel use, and for later use as an HTPC connected to our HDTV. I also upgraded the memory to 2GB before powering up for the first time, this way as Winders did it's intial setup the swap file was created in the correct size. I connected an external USB DVD drive and used Acronis True Image to clone the original hard drive to the 640GB drive I installed.
Joining our WPA2 encrypted Wi-Fi network was so easy it seemed like I was using a Mac. During the first boot setup it showed me a list of the SSIDs for the Wi-Fi networks it could see, I chose one, it asked for the password, and the job was done. Microsoft has greatly improved the handling of Wi-Fi connections in Winders 7.
The keyboard is much less flimsy than my 7" eeePC, and although it is small I find it much easier to type without accidentally touching the trackpad. I also very much like the two separate buttons below the trackpad instead of having left and right mouse button functions in one bar.
Winders 7 Starter is not too difficult to tolerate, although I greatly prefer Mac OS X. The OS does run a bit slower than on a full size netbook with an AMD space heater CPU, but that is a part of the tradeoff involved in using an Atom processor. The energy savings provided by the NB280 Atom CPU is enormous, the entire computer uses less power than many CPUs.
I've installed Boxee and XBMC for later use as an HTPC and I find the VGA external display port can do a good job of driving our 1080p HDTV.
Easy to upgrade
Very good battery performance
World's worst notebook speaker, it's a bad joke
I have no hesitation giving this netbook 4 stars, if it were not for the 98% useless speaker I'd give it 5.
