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
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.Read more ›
