I have used several laptops and an EEE PC 901 before quite extensively. (The EEE was returned to Amazon recently after internet connection problems. Amazon returns were great, a full refund was very prompt, which gave me the confidence to use them again.)
The EEE was a great machine, and I was impressed size-wise. However, in retrospect, it was a capabale web browser, but had a mediocre screen and a performance unsuited to medium or heavy usage. My wife found the small keyboard fiddly and difficult for extended use.
The Acer on the other hand has pretty reasonable performance. Granted it is never going to be a top end games machine, but it runs all the things I have tried on it. All YouTube videos have looked great. BBC's "Life" on iPlayer looked fantastic on the high resolution screen. The wider screen resolution also makes web browsing easier. I have not required any sideways scrolling at all. I have tried out OpenOffice 3.1, which runs very quickly and is close enough (and compatible enough and free) to Office 2000 for both mine and my wife's work needs. The keyboard is top notch, feels completely full size, with good travel and response. I have no bother touch typing (as far as my limited typing goes!), though find the flat unsculpted keys odd.
The 250Gb hard disc is great in a machine this size: It will become our iTunes base once all our songs have been transferred. The 6 hour battery life quoted is about right as an average. I get a little more than this with light usage.
My machine shipped with Windows 7, which looks good on first impression. Better than what little use I have had on Vista. I timed start-up at about 1 minute 20 to full active status, and about a further 2 seconds to get the Wifi connection. Shut down is less than 20 seconds. This is much better than my experience with XP or Vista on any machine, but no match for anything running Linux.
I felt the EEE 901 was good for its basic purpose and a great small machine, but had too many compromises. It could not really be used as a second PC for work or any serious use. The Asus, while a little larger, is still truly very portable, but more importantly, if you are not bothered about 3D real time gaming performance, it is truly a PC.
Want a machine you can really use on the move? I don't think you could do better. Pricey compared to other netbooks, yes, but worth the extra for the massively increased useability.
I had been looking at this and the acer 751 also with 11.6" screen, after looking at a huge amount of reviews online I decided to spend the extra £100 and purchase the 1410, The spec of mine is a little different to the one sold by Amazon here, Mine is the same CPU but 3GB RAM and 160GB hard drive and windows 7 home premium.... Otherwise all the same spec, In case you are wondering mine was purchased from Currys, Wanted some instant xmas gratification the price was less than amazon and also wanted to beat the VAT increase.
So far I am very impressed battery seems able to last a day of on and off browsing and watching dvd's and general use...I have installed photoshop elements and done a little editing and this has not slowed down the machine to much, This was one of the main reasons I opted for this over the 751 as it has an Intel celeron processor onboard rather than the Atom of most netbooks.
The screen looks to be very good I really like how the colours are on it and also seems to be quite sharp as well, Another item I like is the multi touch trackpad where I can swipe my fingers and zoom on a webpage which is really good as sometimes i strain my eyes a little reading some of the small type.
I have also bought some extras for this a slimline DVD drive, I didnt get a writer as the idea of having a netbook is to be able to carry it about and not waste time burning discs and the like, I have memory sticks if I need to move some files and a large USB hard drive at home to back stuff up onto. The other purchase has been a swordfish bag to keep it in which fits very nicely and also has a side compartment to keep the dvd drive in, Speaking of which the dvd drive is Liteon one which has a tiny USB cable that fits under the bottom of it which is a great idea, This runs from the netbooks power and I havent really used it under the Acers own power yet so I cant comment how long it will last on the battery with it running.
So any cons, Well one I have found so far is it seems to only have a small backspace key which meant I would often hit the wrong key, But slowly I am getting used to it, Also it does a feel a little plasticky but for £349 you can hardly expect some aluminium titanium artpiece! The outside also is in shiny piano black which looks great but is a serious fingerprint magnet, I would maybe suggest having a look at the other colours if this is something you think may bother you.
One other thing, I have seen this available as a dual core machine, My one is single core but not sure if the dual core is available in the UK.
I would wholeheartedly reccomend this to anyone looking for a netbook well worth spending the extra money on, Some may call this a notebook I have no idea I just know it does what I want it too so a well deserved 5 stars!
On the plus side; small, light, excellent battery life, good keyboard, great screen.
On the minus side; stupid high-gloss finish that will only ever look good in the showroom (in real life it will always appear covered in fingerprints and dust), speakers mounted on the front underside (so I now plug in some Logitech USB V10s if I need to really listen to something), tracker pad is highly sensitive and gets confused if you brush your hand anywhere near it (so I now plug in my Logitech USB/wireless mouse and all is well).
I also upgraded the 2GB RAM to 4GB as it's only around £35 to do so and I assume this has speeded things up.
I'd have given this machine a 5-star rating if the outer case had the same matt finish as the underside of the laptop and if the speakers had been mounted flat, on-top behind the keyboard. But, all in all, an absolutely brilliant laptop - none of them are perfect, but this one nearly is. Impressed with Windows 7 too. Next time, Acer?
