Overall, if you are looking for a 13.3 thin and light netbook it is a fantastic deal. If you want to go a bit smaller and save about $100 I would look at the 1201N-PU17-SL as an option.
-It was easy to get it started. I was using the computer as I normally would an hour after I opened the box it came in.
-The keyboard is easy to type on.
-The track-pad is nice. People who have reviewed the UL30A-X5 (basically the same thing only without the Kindle Program installed) say they don't like it, but I like it. It doesn't make the skin on your finger feel "tired" if that makes sense.
-The quick-start option is really cool! I know I'll use it a lot when I want to quickly look something up on the internet but don't want to go through the process of starting up Windows. Windows also doesn't take a long time to start up... it takes a minute from the time you hit the power button to the time you can run a program.
-The camera is very fun to use. It might just be the novelty of it, but it's a fun little plus.
-As others have written before in other reviews (for the UL30A-X5), there is little "bloatware". You're not really bombarded with the free trial stuff.
-No problems with Wi-fi range.
-It stays cool.
-It's quick, as a new computer should be.
-Fingerprint magnet, as others have said before. But does that really matter?
-The right-hand shift key is shorter than your average shift key. I find myself pressing the up arrow by accident, but I think I'll be able to train myself not to extend my pinky so far sooner or later.
-The battery life for using normal Windows is 7 hours. Still not bad, but don't get your hopes up for 12!Read more ›
I did do a battery test run doing nothing. On the PowerMark recommended settings, the battery lasts for 7 hours, not 11 as advertised. It played video well contrary to some other reports on this machine. This machine does not run hot in your lap compared to the 1005-PR.
This is also the first time I have used the Amazon RMA process, and from a customer's perspective, it's awesome! The RMA ticket process is easy to generate, UPS easily handled my package, and a new one was shipped even prior to the delivered return. I'm never going to worry again about buying an expensive piece of equipment from Amazon again.
-----Modified after I received an exchange from Amazon RMA from 2-3 stars-------------
So, now that I get a functional one, I really like it. I don't need a optical drive directly attached. Even with being extremely battery efficient, I only get 7 hours (the other reviewer is right). It is fast enough that I don't notice hanging with the standard Microsoft suite, it will play video fine, it will actually run Eclipse and NumPy (relatively painful on the processors) without noticable issues in interactive mode. The speakers aren't bad, and the screen is decent if you are looking straight at it. Wi-fi is a cinch, and I don't notice range issues with the card.Read more ›
The UL30A-X5 handles multitasking quite well. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick the 1.3ghz dual-core ULV processor works. The 4gbs of RAM is very handy as well for resource intensive programs. As far as build quality goes, I was a little underwhelmed. It feels nice and solid but apart from the aluminum case(fingerprint magnet) it seems a bit plasticky. The build quality is slightly better than eeePC series but I was expecting more at this price point, however the glossy screen does give it more of a high-end look. I still give this laptop five stars because while it's not amazing by any means it is a solid, good performing PC with excellent battery life.Read more ›
