I've owned this netbook for around 6 months and it's had a hard life.
I use it for surfing the web (Facebook and what not) and looking up exploded diagrams for my motocross bikes.
it see's engine oil and grease on a regular basis but the plastic case cleans up really easy.
the screen is a brilliant size. big enough to see from the bench but small enough not to get knocked over and damaged.
speed isn't an issue as it's fast enough to play online games.
battery life is average depending how you set it to run without a power cable. (if set to high performance battery life is around 60 mins.)
keyboard is spaced out nice and typing is very easy. (even with latex gloves on)
I take this laptop everywhere with me. the bathroom, out with friends and work.
the only bad points i have about this laptop is that the webcam isn't as clear as I was expecting and the sound isn't of great quality when turned up loud.
other than that this netbook is a really good buy.
