Other Thoughts: Used Windows 7 once, only to install Jolicloud OS. Battery life better in Win 7, 11-12 hours vs Jolicloud OS 5-6 hours on a full charge at low brightness (2 of 16) and wireless on. Thought that 12 hour mark is achieved with 1 or 2 brightness and the processor at 800ghz or so? The powersave setting on the Super Hybrid Engine. Gives you more time but underclocks the processor a lot.
streaming 720p is choppy on youtube, 480p is fine though.
Despite some hiccups, Jolicloud is my favorite OS for the netbook. Xpress Gate OS that's included is super fast, 5-6 second boot time with all the netbook basics, browser, image viewer, etc. Good if you just want to get on internet really fast.
Great product and design, super fast delivery, very pleased with decision.
