Advantages: Good transportability.
Disadvantages: Short battery life, not enough memory for the professional on the go.
I bought the Asus Netbook, simply because of it's size initially. Due to the fact that I'm on the move on a regular basis, it was important for me to have an easily transportable device to be able to do my work on the go. Although the netbook serves it's purpose to a certain extent, I was a little disappointed with the relatively small screen and the short battery life. The battery tends to drain extremely quickly. As a media professional, I also tend to have to save a lot of large files on my netbook and unfortunately, the memory just isn't big enough.
It's a shame as the product is very attractive to look at, extremely light (I can slip it in my handbag), but for professional functionality it doesn't quite fit the bill. When the battery runs low, the screen also dulls, so at some points you may have to reach for the charger, just to brighten up the screen. I would recommend the Asus EEE notebook for students or for non-professional users, if you don't need a large memory, this product should be OK for you.
Summary: Nice to look at, but doesn't meet all of my needs.
