Cons

0.3MP webcam

2 agree

only 1GB of system memory

Windows 7 Starter - no support for Nvidia's Optimus technology, means manual toggling between the dedicated and low power graphics subsystems

2 agree

pre-loaded with lots of crapware

2 agree

10" standard 1024 x 600px resolution

1 agrees

lower portion of the trackpad is actually not sensitive to touch, throws you off when mapping your finger motion to your on screen one

1 agrees

small and cramped keyboard and trackpad - par for netbooks, poor for everyday use

The Asus Eee PC 1015PN is one of the first Asus Eee PC netbooks to feature a dual-core Atom CPU. It’s a duplicate of the 10.1” 1015PEM, except that it adds along the Nvidia Ion 2 platform and an HDMI output. Everything remains the same—including DDR3 (first of its kind) and Bluetooth 3.0 (also first of its kind for the Eee PC netbook series). Everything else is just standard Eee PC componentry like USB 3.0, WiFi, Ethernet, speakers, etc.

Funny how the netbook came and went. What I was once in love with, now repulses me.

I agree to a certain extent, although not repulsive, I find it hard to see a niche for a netbook given the amazingly thin, light, and powerful laptops out there, and the advent of the new tablet category. Their only saving grace is price.

Having said that, I still find utility uses from my original Asus EEE PC at home. Network bridge, internet radio player, and toddler YouTube player.

Agree with Erik. Great competition now with tablets (laptops are not in competition with netbook because of price and size) and books-reader (when they will integrate wifi and browser).
I use my netbook as radio player, phone (skype), networking and ...toddler YouTube player (they can learn how potatoes are growing and the difference between a dolphin and an orque, great!)

Your toddler videos are a lot more educational than the ones I've been showing my little guy. Lately it's all been "funny dogs" and "big bugs"! Can you send me some educational ones so I don't feel so bad!!
