Battery – I agree the life is crap. However, as mentioned this is expected from this kind of machine and it doesn’t bother me since I’ll have it plugged in most of the time. Was more looking for a relocatable machine that I can use anywhere in my house than a true notebook.
Touchpad Buttons – Agreed on the design is hard to click but for general use I am used to them now. I use a mouse most of the time however.
Speakers – No subwoofer so a bit tinny but not bad otherwise. Periodic click comes from them though it doesn’t really bother me – others have reported this as well and it will probably be solved by a BIOS update or something.
Camera – Mine came from factory with the lens mis-seated in the bezel and they are replacing it for me. There is a noticable lag in the capture but I am unsure if this is a factor of the misalignment or not.
It is very good. It is one of those rare products that keep you smiling happily every time you use it. I was at first skeptical about the “weak” CPU and small screen/keyboard size. But in fact it loads and runs faster than big laptops with Vista on them, and neither keyboard nor screen make me feel uncomfortable when I use them.
