Pros: Works as advertised.
Other Thoughts: No issues on an Acer Aspire AO522 (AMD C-50/6250 APU).READ FULL REVIEW
Excellent keyboard (for a netbook)
Good battery life (6+ hours)
Large, responsive touchpad that is integrated nicely into the palmrest.
Fn key to disable touchpad on-demand.
WiFi LED intensity varies in correlation to current AP signal strength (very cool)
The CPU supports more than 2GB of RAM (unlike Atom processors).
1280x720 HD screen resolution.
Cons: Platter HDD
Backspace key is much smaller than normal. You will hit "=" until you get used to it.
Windows 7 is barely usable with 1GB RAM.
Other Thoughts: The Radeon 6250 is an on-die gpu. It shares system memory, so your OS will report less RAM than is actually installed. E.g., 1GB total RAM = ~750MB available to the computer.
I replaced the memory with a 2GB SODIMM (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148192) and it is much more responsive.
Win7 Starter is a crippled excuse of an OS. I also replaced that with linux.
This review is from: HP 4GB v135w USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Blue) Model P-FD4GBHP135-EF
Pros: Small form factor
Easily disassembled for an even smaller flash drive!
Cons: Seems slow, but I've been spoiled by dual-channel drives lately. Benchmarks show it's average.
Other Thoughts: Sequential read/write benchmarks:
Write: 4.7 MB/s
dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile blocksize=1M count=1024 conv=fdatasync,notrunc
Read: 16 MB/s
dd if=tempfile of=/dev/null blocksize=1M count=1024
(average of 4x test iterations)
*blocksize should be b-s but it's censored
