5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Sidekick Computer 4 Musicmakin

Pros: After a little more than week since my initial receipt of this netbook, I am very happy with its overall performance and the experience I have had with it so far. I have installed a 320GB Hitachi hard drive and 2GB of G skill RAM. I have gotten a dual boot 10.6.1 SL and Ubuntu Netbook remix configuration going on -both working nicely and mitigated at boot by GRUB. Both OS's were smoothly installed via USB flash drives onto the pre-partitioned HD (I decided it would be best to format the drive from my mac pro via an external enclosure before installation into the neutrino). I used the infamous netbookbootmaker for the SL and the built-in USB boot maker in 64bit Ubuntu to make the drives for each respective OS

I am very impressed by the machine's performance, especially within SL. I have and will continue to push the processor hard since I will be using the neutrino to run my mac based software synthesizers out of logic pro. Kind of like a portable digital synth module.

Cons: My only worry at this point is overheating down the line since I am pushing this baby consistently harder than its supposed to. I can't give exact heat stats as the sensors in the neutrino will never show up in any SL based heat monitor app. That said, it seems to stay nice and cool in UNR. Only other con I can think of was the installation of the memory-it required a scary amount of forced to wedge it in as described in the instructions, but it all works fine so I'm over it. Just don't be a tool about it, and you should be alright.

Battery life is short (2hrs ish normally), but you get what you can expect out of it.

Somewhat fatter than standard netbooks but still skinny enough to fit any 10" case

Other Thoughts: The 250GB HD size limit does not raise compatibility issues, however down the line i would not overlook the possibility of overheating with a bigger than recommended size-that's really just speculation tho.

Has an SD card slot that is bootable-nice bonus. It shows up like any other usb device in the BIOS boot menu. All usb's are bootable. Also has a sim card slot on the inside. Haven't tested for bootability or anything really. Would be nice to know what it's for exactly-just more flash storage? Firmware support?

Overall if you do your homework thoroughly and download all appropriate usb bootmakers and drivers, you should have your favorite OS's and software up in no time. The resultant machine will be far more rewarding than any other netbook out there, even beyond the sheer crafty fun of having done it yourself

5 out of 5 eggseggcellent

Pros: Manufacturer Warranty
Parts Lifetime limited
Labor Lifetime limited
Really?? I can't wait to take advantage of this. Every other last netbook only has 1 year warranties. Total deal maker.

Additional pluses include one:
of best Atom's out
screen gets nice and bright
speakers get nice and loud, sound pretty good
webcam is.. a webcam
sufficient ports--especially because of the expresscard slot. sd slot is nice, available space for wireless n install is nice, vga out is nice.

seems quiet, seems decent quality/build. There is certainly cheaper.

worked great right out of box, no major problems. bios/programming is quite good. There aren't any essential driver/firmware updates associated with it, which is great.

Cons: price isn't too bad, but pushes it (with added components) a bit higher priced than other notebook solutions.

battery life sucks compared to other netbooks. they are supposed to have a higher capacity optional battery available and it's not; the higher capacity one should be included in package because now, it literally dies twice as fast as it's competitor's netbooks.

trackpad & buttons are usable but not ideal

the parts that are glossy finish should just be matte, glossy plastic = cheap look/feel.

IMO, power adapt belongs on the left side of devices.

Other Thoughts: The price point weighs a little better if you take advantage of purposefully over-complicated and strict process of the mail-in rebate.

I tested streaming--ustream works fabulous through it. Using a firewire expresscard. Test e-sata/usb expresscard as well, which also works well.

Win XP recommended over Windows Vista/7, the latter is simply just too resource hungry for Atom, even on basic visuals.

3 out of 5 eggswhere the 6 cell battery

Pros: it a good little netbook that can use 2 gigs of ram

Cons: not able to run 64 bit software
the 2 hour battery life even with a 4 cell battery is sad
and the fact that at one time there was going to be a 6 cell
supposedly in may this year is not going to happen according to ocz forum

Other Thoughts: for the cost of this unit and the components you add there is there are much better netbooks out there

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Netbook

Pros: Placed a 128 GSKILL SSD, 2GB OCZ PC-6400, and loaded Ubuntu on it (full version). Works Like A Champ!!!!

I would buy this again, and likely will for others. Fast, easy, and well built.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: The gloss finish does show fingerprints/usage.

5 out of 5 eggsSnow Leopard Compatibility is Excellent

Pros: Installation of MacOS 10.6 using an 8 GB USB flash card and the NetbookBootMaker 0.8.3 method went without a hitch, after I first reinitialized the hard drive. Installing over an existing 10.5.8 system was not productive and resulted in a KP. After installation of 10.6 -- using the $30 retail Snow Leopard DVD as the starting point -- the system was easily updated to 10.6.1. I used the Ethernet port to obtain the system update, but the WiFi port would have worked had I installed the Realtek 8187 driver package, available from the manufacturer. I couldn't be more pleased with this Netbook.

Cons: 10.6 has issues with Bonjour, for printing, but this is not solely associated with this Netbook. Each of my 10.6 desktops has the same issue. 10.5 is supported by the installer, so that would be a possible fallback position for those Netbook users who rely on Bonjour. USB printer users probably won't experience any issues, but all my printers are on my Intranet, and are 10/100 Ethernet, so I am presently stuck.

Other Thoughts: The NetbookBootMaker 0.8.3 package has proved to be easier, and more compatible than earlier installation methods for 10.5 on this and other Netbooks, some of which require a significant knowledge of TERMINAL and other low-level installation techniques.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Alternative to MacBook Air

Pros: Works with MacOS 10.5.8 out of the box, using the usual OSx86 "Vanilla" install methods. The builtin WiFi card needs the 10.4/10.5 driver kit for OS X, available from the card's manufacturer, otherwise it works out of the box. WiFi performance is very good to exceptional. The other ports work out of the box. Power consumption with a 500 GB 5400 rpm drive is OK. 7200 rpm drives do work, but will consume more power. There is no 250 GB limit, contrary to the documentation, nor a 5400 rpm limit, either. Camera works out of the box with iPhoto. Card reader works out of the box, possibly a first for laptops and OSx86. Express 34 slot greatly increases connectivity. A third party TI chipset FireWire card works out of the box, no driver needed. A third party Silicon Image 3132 chipset eSATA card works out of the box, with the SiI driver package for 10.4/10.5. The USB ports are fast enough to accommodate a USB-to-eSATA dongle, but a SiI Express 34 card is recommended.

Cons: Battery reserve is lower than desired, but that is a known trade-off as the unit has a 4-cell battery -- better than the usual 3-cell battery, but not as good as the usual 6-cell battery option of competitive Netbooks. Bluetooth, for which a slot and antenae are provided, is not provided, not is it an option.

Other Thoughts: This is an innovative concept in a Netbook. Although called a "build it yourself" Netbook, this may be viewed as a "design it yourself" Netbook. If you want a full 2 GB, simply install a 2 GB DDR2 stick. If you want a 500 GB hard drive, simply install a 500 GB HD. Nothing is left over, or otherwise wasted.

4 out of 5 eggsNice build, not perfect

Pros: Great build quality, I'm especially impressed by the screen, the build-in bluetooth (although newegg didn't say it had bluetooth in the specifications), the card slots, the finish, and the speaker.

Cons: * As previous reviews point out, brightness fn keys don't work in Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Nor can it be adjusted with linux commands.
* Battery lasts only 2 hours plus with max brightness on. In Windows OS it can reach 3 hours since you can install the function key drive for Windows from OCZ official site.
* The touchpad is a little hard to use. Especially, the buttons are too small so that my finger, when pressing the buttons, often touches the sensing area and moves away the cursor.
* Several keys on the keyboard jammed at the beginning. But after being used for a while that problem went away.

Other Thoughts: I bought it a little too early. Just two weeks later newegg put on a $30 rebate. A pretty good price for $240 AR.

Windows 7 is the right choice for OS. I started with Ubuntu Netbook Remix but was not really happy with it because I have to do a lot of research and install a lot of drivers and applications manually to utilize the hardware in max. Windows 7 does start up 5-10 seconds slower than UNR (my testing shows 40-45 seconds for UNR, and 50-60 seconds for Windows 7 Enterprise, on a OCZ Summit 60G SSD). But once into Windows, the operation is very smooth and doesn't seem to be longer than in UNR. Most importantly, I can install the official function key driver to adjust the brightness which can make the netbook run longer.

The design can be improved. For example, on the back there are only the kensington lock and VGA port. I would love to have one or two more additional USB on the back too. The touchpad buttons need be bigger. I would also love to have a HOME and END key there.

4 out of 5 eggsNifty Little Gizmo!

Pros: Very nice display. Great build quality. One of the few netbooks that accepts a 2GB RAM module. I am running Kubuntu on it currently, though I started out with Ubuntu Netbook Remix.

Cons: Limited battery life - 2 hours. Some screens will not allow access to buttons along the bottom due to vertical resolution constraints. As yet, I have not been able to get the built-in microphone to work.

Other Thoughts: If you have the spare parts lying around the house, then definitely consider this netbook when it is on sale, OR if you are looking for a netbook that will take 2GB of RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome

Pros: Had the neutrino 3 weeks and it's awesome! Putting it together was a breeze, loaded the OS, I installed Ubuntu Remix, and started surfing and using it, in less than two hours. The keyboard fits my fingers, touch pad is a bit tricky. Overall I recommend the OCZ Neutrino over the other netbooks. It has the flexibility that I want and worked flawlessly. So many of the other netbooks have issues, this one, I found none.

Cons: Only con, 6 cell battery option.

Other Thoughts: Looking for a sweet netbook, I'd give this one a try.
