Netbooks: Opinions?

OK, so, all my family knew that I was looking into a netbook for communications and portability, thus giving me money for Xmas. My desktop is still my main machine and will remain that way, but since I'm going to be changing from cellphone to VoIP, I wanted something that would give me some mobility. I don't need a full-on laptop, not for what I'd use it for, but the more I looked at them, the more a netbook started looking like a good solution.

I've spent more than a little time, lately, comparing various ones. I think I've locked down my decision; the Asus Eee PC 1005HA fits everything I want, and seems to top a lot of comparison lists for value and performance. Still, I'm curious: any of you out there who own and use one, which do you have and what do you like and dislike about it?
