Great performance; excellent portability; fantastic price.
HD video playback complimented by reviewers, Full-sized keyboard.
Sturdy build; Elegant design; Gaming capability; Full HD support
Battery life (4.5 hours), weight.Just about the perfect netbook in every respect. Love the little touches, like LEDs showing mute and WiFi on/off status right on their respective keys.
Sleek design, AMD Fusion makes this faster than a netbook.
Compact, portable design.
Priced as high as budget notebooks, Not for gamers
Comes with endless bloatware; Slightly heavy
Shallow keyboard. Touchpad buttons miss lots of clicks. Not a tablet.
Processing Power is so-so, dm1z is a bit heavier than it looks, trackpad scrolling could be smoother.
Noisy fan, still not as fast as an ultraportable.
Smaller than average trackpad, 3G option isn't available yet
ClickPad can still be frustrating, Lots of preloaded software.
Mediocre touchpad, Flimsy Ethernet jack cover.
Occasional touchpad glitches, No USB 3.0 port, Doesn't deliver claimed "9.5 hours" of battery life in real world use.
