Summary: it has a very specific use and purpose. its not really meant to be a game machine, not meant to be a server. its just meant to be a computer that you can tuck away and doesn't use a lot of power. one thing i notice is that i need a SSD for the machine. otherwise its just slow enough to piss me off, even using xubuntu.
Summary: Been running XBMC Frodo on it with media served from NAS, works great. Incredibly low power usage. Only gripe is that HDMI looks worse on my tv than VGA, but I don't know that the EEE is at fault.

Summary: I bought this for using in conjunction with my Roku-XS as I "cut the cord and dish" at the first of the year to run all the entertainment sites like Hulu (Hulu Plus only on Roku), YouTube, ect., to replace the Cable and Dish connections that I had. The unit works great and is connected to the internet via WiFi with no issues and the great graphics card and the single HDMI connection to the television (Sharp Aquos 65") makes the video full 1080 and the sound is in full...

Summary: I purchased this for the 4GB Ram and small size. The performance was very good as I expected, but couple of problems made me return it for refund. Main issue was, after I setup a start up user password in CMOS setup, it will boot and ask for the password, but it does not recognize and key stroke and does not boot up, I called the customer service, they were unable to help me, so they sent me RMA, I sent it to service center, they reloaded the factory OS and returned it...
Summary: I purchased this product because it has a lot of great features (small size, multicore, etc) I have had the unit for about six months and can recommend for everything but the support for the NVidia card it comes with (GeForce610M). The problem is that you cant load NVidia drivers and must use out of date ASUS drivers. As a result, you cant do CUDA programming on the machine. I have worked for hours on this issue with NVidia and ASUSwithout a fix.
