"Phenomenal Value"5.0 starson by interested88
Pros: Small physical size, Large Hard Drive, 95% size keyboard, 1.3 Megapixel Cam in screen border, Fast, memory capacity, etc...
Cons: Glossy surface is a fingerprint magnet, Windows XP Home (would like to have a Pro version available as OEM), Not always enough power through USB for USB powered devices (like 2.5" portable hard drives)
Summary: Bang for the buck, this thing has it! Instantly upgraded memory from 1GB to 2GB and loaded Windows XP Pro SP3 with all drivers. This is a lot faster than I originally thought it would be. The Atom processor isn't for those that play with processor intensive applications like Photosop or Illustrator, but for the average business person, who needs email, web, maybe a client app or two, this is a great solution! Small, portable, and relatively powerful with good HD capacity, I can't think of a better buy.
This would also be outstanding for Corporate Salesmen that need to check email, maybe a spreadsheet or two along with the presentation and generally don't have the need for all the power that most people carry in their notebook bags. Let's face it, very rarely does one use all of the power of a full blown notebook.
Now, the bad part is this will not power my Western Digital 2.5" external hard drive, but does fine with Jump Drives, and having the SD card reader built in to the unit makes it easier to add extra capacity if need be.
Overall, I make the decision on what we rollout in my company. I will be purchasing more units to replace our aging Notebook fleet, with only a few minor exceptions. The point is, if I can run my enterprise 1000 station network with it and be comfortable (which I have been doing for over a month now), it will be more than enough power for the vast majority of notebook users we have employed.
