I needed a replacement for a dying eepc for travelling. This fills the bill. If I need serious Photoshop computing power, I use my desktop. Incredible browsing speed. Boots in 5 seconds, wakes up in 2 seconds, no anti-virus to slow things down. Long battery life. Wish PS was USB-based, not like clunky in-line unit. Chrome is continually updated. Awesome machine for the price!
