Pros: No pre-installed OS, faster AMD processor vs. an Atom. Lightweight and battery life is all right for me. I expected the trade off for a faster processor. 2 GB of memory is OK - not great, but for the price it's fair. Discreet graphics is a plus. Ubuntu loaded like a champ and runs well. Keyboard is comfortable to type on, though I prefer my larger notebook for long projects.
Cons: Max 2 GB of memory is disappointing, as is the PC2-5300 spec. Not a huge issue for a netbook, but I'm fairly positive 4 GB of memory would turn this thing into a potential everyday computing solution for some. Fingerprint magnet, although that's a minor issue.
Other Thoughts: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (32-bit) runs quite well. As far as I can tell, no one has a hacked driver package for the 64-bit version out yet. Ubuntu performance tops Windows XP and 7 quite easily from what I've tried. Running XP in Virtualbox on Ubuntu was faster for me than running it natively. Good buy for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
