  • Rainmeter (Gives you desktop gadgets without the huge use of ram and cpu)
  • Rocketdock (No messy icons!)
  • Foobar2000 (Best MP3 player ever)
  • VLC (Play just about anything you chuck at it)
  • Eeerotate (Even if don't have an eee, Rotates the orientation of the touchpad to use it like a book)
  • Winrar (Brilliant lightweight extractor)
  • ESET NOD32 (Low system use and fast boot antivirus)
  • Foxit reader (PDF)
  • Sims 2 (Runs well, A little choppy sometimes but very playable)
  • Rollercoaster tycoon 8) (Plays no problem, the game is FTW!)
  • Photoshop (I'm running 7, Works great)
  • Office 2007 (Still getting used to this!

I use mine as my main daily computer now, You will be very surprised how much these little things can run I think, Don't think of it as a device for just browsing the internet. Use it as you would a normal computer!

Oh, and really try not to think of it as a "netbook", It can do anything a normal computer can do really.

I would have thought the lack of multicore and higher graphics acceleration would have stopped it from running things like photoshop?

I think you would be supprised at how snappy the atom prossesor is! It supports hyperthreading which helps the preformance. The grahpics on mine are a intel 950 128MB chipset, Runs sims 2 pretty smooth and should support sims 3 at lower settings from the specs I've seen so far.
