Cons

expensive for a netbook - the price of a full notebook

heavier than most netbooks - 3.3 pounds

Fire hazard. Switches itself on after a while (not healthy in a laptop bag)

poor battery life versus Atom powered devices (just over 4 hours with the smaller capacity Korean 6 cell)

Glossy screen (unusable in many environments)

12" screen makes the device rather large compared to the majority of 9-10" netbooks
