Summary: Complete garbage. Customer service is pathetic. My daughters was purchased last december, registered it online, and they still would'nt cover it under warranty despite the fact it was manufactured less than a year before call. Be prepared to system restore weekly. Customer service is pathetic.
Summary: I know I get what I pay for, but I didn't expect this netbook to be basically disposable. I had problems with the touchpad and click keys not responding within the first couple months. I sent it in for repair and got it back without anything seemingly having been done to it.
Summary: I haven't opened the box yet, as this is a Christmas gift for my wife. However, I thought it important to note that the shipping was less than satisfactory. The box it was shipped in had little packing material in it and I could feel and hear the computer inside sliding around all over the place.
Summary: I bought this item because it was really inexpensive, and I really wanted a small notebook, it worked great when I got it, but the keyboard had some issues, not all the buttons worked *easily* - some of them I had to really press to get them to register, and it happened with more than 7 keys, in...
Summary: I purchased this gadget with high hopes. I knew it was a toy but hoped for it to be a functional toy. After spending some time with the eee pc 900 I found that there are some serious hardware flaws.
Hardware Failures and the worst customer support I've ever had

Summary: I bought an ASUS 900 last summer for a two month road trip in Europe, it actually performed pretty well. When I returned home, it failed and would no longer boot. Got a replacement which failed, exact same problem and its replacement failed as well, same problem. I'm now waiting on the fourth PC.
Summary: A netbook that won't run on battery only is basically a tiny desktop, so that's what I got with this ASUS out of the box. Technical support was contradictory, everyone had a different fix, no one could ever find my service record and they wanted me to pay for all shipping.
Summary: I purchased this item hoping for a small, highly portable second laptop to take with me when I travel for business. What I got, however, is a PC that takes 20 minutes to boot, hour-glasses every time you move the mouse, and is generally completely worthless.
Excerpt: I cannot express just how badly I view this product. We purchased the Eec PC 900 for our son through his school last year as they were using them in class & we have had nothing but trouble with it. We are now on our third one!!!
Summary: I bought a Linux version for all the reasons the other comments gave. The central problem was that wireless didn't work, and ASUS were of no help in fixing this. In fact, the instructions they gave (to recover system) led to the whole system crashing.
