Asus Eee PC 900A
Disadvantages: Low battery life, broken battery
It's a really good netbook, one of the first around. Asus really brings quality products. At the moment I'd personally go for a newer netbook instead of this one.
About two years ago I paid Euro400 for it. It worked really well, only the battery would slowly drain when the netbook was turned off. This is quite bad for your netbook so that's not a plus...
The design is really slick, it's about a kilogram in weight so it's easy to take around. After using the keyboard for a while, the click buttons started to wear, they weren't really able to click anymore, they did work, but didn't make a click sound.
Also the processor isn't a really good one.
I can recommend using linux or some cloud operating system on it. It will really enhance your netbook as an internet device, seriously, it will be fast and your files will be available everywhere you go.
On the battery
The battery slowly drains when the netbook is turned off, this is the case with every one of them, it's a manufacturing thing. There's no way to repair it so beware...
Summary: Good laptop, but the battery makes it less worthy...
