I have the HP mini 1000 which is identical to the Compaq 702 (from the outside at least) but with a different badge. I have the 16gb ssd. I'm very impressed with the surfing performance, startup time, screen quality, keyboard, much better than I'd hoped for. The touchpad with the buttons on the side is also fine. Battery life is more than 2 hours, long enough to be staring continuously at a 10" screen and a good excuse to take a break! It is the best of the netbooks I tried but since using, i point out a couple of negatives. After 20 minutes use, the fan is constantly on at its highest level, it is on the slightly annoying side and loses one star for that alone (even with the SSD drive, the bottom of the computer is quite hot due to the processor). You don't notice the fan in the shop due to other background noise. The small LED light on the button above the touchpad is slightly annoyingly bright, as are the 2 lights on the front buttons, especially like me you lie on the sofa in a slouched position with the netbook at chest level. Fairly minor points but worth bearing in mind. I'd still recommend it as a superb buy, perfect for surfing the net on the sofa!
