Asus Eee PC 1000
Released August, 2008
The Pros:Keyboard is comfortable enough for big hands and hours of typing. Attractive and practical design, looks nice and doesn't sacrifice functionality by making all the letters stand out clearly. Display is bright and clear, makes text easy to read and pictures look nice.
The Cons:Outer case attracts fingerprints really badly, looks smudged almost right away. A bit bulky and a bit heavy for a netbook, although still smaller and lighter than most laptops.

keyboard is comfortable enough for big hands and hours of typing
attractive and practical design, looks nice and doesn't sacrifice functionality by making all the letters stand out clearly
display is bright and clear, makes text easy to read and pictures look nice
sound is above-average for a netbook, can get about as loud as you want as long as you don't need bass
can get over 8 hours out of the battery without turning the screen brightness all the way down or WiFi off
easy to swap the 1Gb memory stick for the 2Gb, even newer users can handle it
outer case attracts fingerprints really badly, looks smudged almost right away
a bit bulky and a bit heavy for a netbook, although still smaller and lighter than most laptops
