I own an EEEPC 1000 as well, with the SSD drive, and it is a great computer. Overstock had a special for the 1025C for $220 so I thought I'd upgrade. Sadly this is not an upgrade. It is slower than my EEEPC 1000 and *deal breaker* it only has 1 speaker - so movies and music sound terrible. It's a shame none of the review mention this, it's a real backward step for Asus. Windows 7 starter runs really slow and there is a bunch of bloat software pre-installed. It randomly freezes for about 30 seconds occasionally. I think it is memory related (only 1Gb installed, no upgrade possible because there is no hatch). I removed some bloat but who knows what can safely be removed? Overall a disappointing product from Asus. Get a EEEPC 1000 if you can find one, IMHO this was the pinnacle of the EEEPC series.
