    Probably the lowest cost Netbook on Amazon but you'd never think it when you get it. Excellent build quality, very comfortable 1000x600 or so screen resolution, and what feels like a full size keyboard (haven't mistyped once yet). Where my current work IBM Thinkpad drains it's battery in an hour, my new Asus is going for over 6 hours use (watching product demo videos and surfing using Google Chrome on Windows XP) before I in need to connect it to the supplied power connector. Truely very impressed to date - as are most people who try it out.

    I've had no performance issues playing back high resolution YouTube videos or any other application i've thrown at it; it seems to cope with them without breaking sweat (or getting too warm!). I've also plugged in a Vodafone "Top up and Go" Broadband USB stick and been happily surfing in a restaurant way out in the country, well away from any WiFi or other network connection.

    If you're wondering why there is another model with the same model number that costs £50 or so more, it's because it's 2/3 the thinkness of this one and has a battery that lasts slightly longer. For me, not a factor; this one is already very small to carry (about the size of an average hardback book).

    Based on my experience to date, I couldn't recommend this Netbook highly enough. I'm just very impressed and have been delighted with this Amazon purchase.

    What a brilliant piece of kit. Needed a small netbook for when I'm out and about taking photos and this looked like the one for me. Did a bit of research and what really swung it was the 8.5 hour battery.

    Yes the screen can only go upto 1024x600 but it works very well. It comes with Microsoft Office Trial, Norton Anti-Virus (both of which I took off straight away). The drive is split into 2 80GB drives. Sound is good and the camera fine for chat.

    Plays AVI files very well, so the kids will be happy in the back of the car instead of having to watch films on a 3" screen of their MP4's.

    The machine itself looks very neat and tidy. While on the train the other day someone asked me if it was made by Apple, which must be a compliment in itself.

    Overall this is well worth the money, and if you need a bigger battery theres another version, but at too much extra cost to justify the extra 1.5 hours you'll get. I've also ordered a car charger for it, so I can charge on the go.

    Brilliant stuff from a company I've only just heard of.

    The Asus EeePC 1005HA is simply everything I expected from a netbook. All others at this price, and beyond, failed in one crucial area - battery life. The EeePC 1005HA will happily work for between 6-8 hours, using wifi and MS Office 2007 packages. The EeePC 1005HA can also easily manage TV streaming and Torrent up/downloading. One of its, now, main roles is to stream BBC iPlayer programmes whilst I am in the kitchen or tinkering in the attic. After buying this netbook, I have used my 15.4" Laptop much less than I ever did. The 1005HA is a superb bit of kit for the price and the amount of use it has had, due to the lengthy battery life and convenience of this, fully justifies the purchase.

    The only critical points I can think of are, firstly, it uses the Windows XP operating system. Whilst this is fast and very stable, it is very difficult, with my lack of knowledge, to connect to a Windows 7 home network, such as I have. Also, being XP, one cannot take advantage of the free downloadable Anti-Virus software from Microsoft. Consequently, I use Avast free downloadable Anti-Virus program, which works well. Whilst the wifi catcher works faultlessly, even if the BT HomeHub doesn't, one must use a wifi dongle for times that a hotspot or other wireless network are not available when out and about.

    My two critical points are just that. I would not think twice about buying this netbook again were it to be damaged or stolen. The 1005HA is, to me, exceptional performance, stylish and fantastically priced to the point that I wonder what other manufacturers think they are doing for charging so much for their own machines which offer less!

    I bought an Asus Eee 701 about a year after it came out, and grew to love it like a faithful pet. It was far more flexible than a smartphone and much smaller than a laptop, and it was also a babe-magnet. But I eventually got fed up with the small screen and the limited battery life. I had to carry a high-capacity spare and constantly keep an eye on the remaining power. Asus came out with a confusing array of replacement models, and the 1005HA appears to be the best modern combination of value and performance (there's a 1008HA, which is thinner but has a non-removable battery, and there's also a pair of larger 1201 models which seem to overlap uncomfortably with conventional laptops). As I understand it, there are three basic models of the 1005HA, and the one that sells is the HA-V, which is the mid-range model.

    I've had mine for about a week now. Compared to the 701 it has a conventional magnetic hard drive, split into two 80gb partitions; a larger, higher-resolution screen; and much longer battery life. It takes the same memory modules, and indeed I swapped the 2gb chip in my 701 for the 1gb chip in my 1005HA with no problems. Physically, the hinge feels slightly less robust, and the body is proportionately heavier than the 701 (the battery, in contrast, is surprisingly lightweight). It's still hand-holdable but not as comfortable.

    Good stuff: the screen is 1024x600, not quite a conventional resolution but enough for most purposes. The colour rendition and contrast are fine. Blacks are black, rather than the washed-out grey I have seen on some monitors. The battery life is very impressive, far inside my comfort threshold.
