ASUS did an awesome job with this netbook. The 900HA is solidly constructed and well designed. It runs every application I could use on the road - including 3D CAD, office apps, DVDs and most games.

Battery life with my normal use seems to be around 3 hours. Activating power save mode with the Eee Super Hybrid Engine does not noticably compromise performance - I am able to run multiple applications simultaneously without lag. I watched a DVD while downloading several files over wireless internet and copying other files over a LAN with two CAD parts open and minimized. The unit also stays relatively cool during use - ASUS mobile products are typically a good performer in that area. The fan is also relatively quiet even at full speed - another typical trait of ASUS mobile products.

I am simply amazed by the performance of this little machine. The critical limitations are associated with its size. If you want to do some CAD work, the 8.9 inch screen gets old fast - plug a nice LCD monitor into the VGA port on the side. The keyboard is small but still easy to use. The spacebar is short and hence during early use I had a tendency to miss it and hit the alt key instead. Also, the far right end of the spacebar is also less sensitive than expected and will not register unless it is tapped with moderate force.

The size of the unit is also its greatest advantage. It is small and light enough to hold in one hand and even fits in the pocket of some of my jackets. If you want something extremely mobile that can do pretty much everything your desktop can - this is it.
