Summary: I bought this computer mainly to watch Netflix, hulu and Amazon movies, but it seems to be a little too slow for hulu and amazon. I think part of the problem is the operating system. Hulu suggests users have windows 7 but this has XP. I have a net book with a similar hardware but windows 7 and it worked fine for hulu and amazon.
Summary: Mostly cons I guess. While I just got the computer & it seems to work well, I was miffed & perplexed to see that it only has an HDMI video output jack and no VGA output. I checked the spec's on here but it says nothing about that. There is an adapter for DVI but not all monitors have that input. (The Acer Revo has both but they do not run separately.# It also isn't as small as the Acer Revo which is approximately square #parallelogram really#.
Not Fully Compatible With Windows 7 - HD Content / Flash Will Not Play

12 June 2010
Summary: Update (24 Jun 2010): ASUS recommended going back to Windows XP, they DO NOT have compatible drivers yet for Windows 7. At the moment Windows 7 will NOT do HW decoding which means it will not play HD on this box until ASUS releases new drivers. Update (17 Jun 2010): Upgraded to 2G of memory and the box still will not play HD or flash content with Windows 7 installed. I have contacted both ASUS and ATI for a driver update, no word yet on a fix.
