I bought this because it was recommended by Gadget Show. It lives fully up to expectations. It's really light-weight, boots up really quickly and looks great.

The battery life is pretty good - around 5 hours of normal use, surfing the web and listening to music. The sound seems pretty good to me, although te built-in speakers are rather tinny.

2 USBs has proved fine so far. It is a bit awkward connecting an external DVD,which needs both USBs at once, but this can easily be solved with an extension lead. There's not much room around the headphone and ethernet sockets either, but they work OK. I had to play around with the touch-pad to get it to work well for me, but it's fine now I've reduced the sensitivity and turned off the auto-scrolling

When I received the netbook, I was pleased by its appearance, lightness and screen resolution. However, on trying to connect to my wireless network - no joy. It could see the (Netgear) router, would try to connect for 30 seconds, then return without connecting. I spent several hours trying to sort the problem, using the eee pc User Group Forums, where a number of solutions were suggested - no joy. I reset the netbook to factory setting several times, again with no luck. And yes, I DID have the wireless enabled! I knew my network was not to blame, with two laptops having no trouble connecting.

In the end I returned the netbook to Amazon for a replacement. Brilliant return service - the replacement was with me before the returned package was picked up. The replacement Eee had no trouble - working straight out of the box.

I noted on the forums that most people had found no problems, whilst a significant minority had the same trouble as I did. Solutions were being suggested, and some of the replies to the beleagoured suggested that they must be incompetent if they couldn't get theirs to work!

I surmise that this is a quality control issue. Had I gone for refund rather than replace then this would have had no stars, if that were possible! As it is, 4 stars - and the working machine is worth 5 stars.

So - great portability, and a very long battery life (over 6 hours in my case.) The fastest netbook I've used - I'm not going to upgrade the RAM - but then I have streamlined things a little by junking the "free trial" of Office and instead using the genuinely free Open Office, Google Chrome as my browser and AVG (free) anti virus software rather than the supplied Norton, which can slow things down.

I bought this netbook for my wife based upon other reviews and the price. It's a beautiful colour, I was worried it might look 'too' blue, admittedly it's more black then blue, but that's cool for me as after ordering, I wished I'd selected the black colour instead. My wife loves this netbook, despite having a standard laptop of her own. Guests dropping by today have been very impressed including my Mum who has decided she would like one too!

I bought this item and have had enough of it. Firstly, the memory has to be upgraded by Asus as it has a fully sealed case. Do not believe internet claims that user upgrade does not breach warranty - it does and Asus are not interested in helping, even if you offer to pay for it. So as it is thereby non-upgradeable Amazon as usual did a great offer of refund. So I ordered another thinking I would have it professionally (ie by Asus) upgraded if I felt the machine needed it at a later time. The device has lasted 10 weeks and is going back again as it now fails to run any media software. Driver reinstalls, system restore (to day 1), software uninstall/reinstall... nothing will fix it. Only answer is to rebuild from OS up. On running the XP installation utility, apparently this laptop does not have a hard drive.... So, in short, any software failure and this is irrepairable by a consumer - so everything glitch would mean back to supplier and high cost repair. Amazon to the rescue again. So would I buy from anywhere other than Amazon? no. Do I recommend this machine? No, unless for the sort of person who would always take a machine to a professional every time something goes wrong. Pretty it may be, user friendly - it aint.

Decided to buy this for travel as it has a long battery life and very light to carry. I previously had the original EEPC 700 that would have been ok but the 800x600 screen was not adequate and the battery life was poor. The 1008HA was the choice after a review in the sadly departed PCW magazine and has proved to be a good buy. After establishing the machine's good performance etc what stands out is the quality of he case and the feel of the machine -even compared to the small Sony machine almost 3 times the price. Only down point is the tracker button is a bit stiff and drag and drop can be a hit or miss

A bit pricey as netbooks go but style, weight and usability make the best computer purchase I have ever made. Excellent
