Acer Aspire One AO532h-2223 Silver Matrix Intel Atom N450(1.66GHz) 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performs as advertised. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix (UNR), and everything worked out of the box. I get about 6 hours battery life with moderately heavy usage.

Cons: It came with an outdated BIOS. It was necessary to update to the latest rev before the CORSAIR 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) upgrade would work.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 Starter is trash, I never even booted it up.

It is a good idea to install the Linux wireless backports modules to prevent the wireless connection from sometimes dropping.

ASUS K50 Series K50IJ-RX05 NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T4200 (2.00GHz) 3GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel GMA 4500M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The specs looked good.

Cons: The keyboard & mouse freeze up at least twice per day. The webcam was installed upside down.

Other Thoughts: I installed Kubuntu 9.10 w/backports modules, and everything worked out of the box, except for the upside-down webcam, but there is a Video For Linux work-around for that.

The main problem is that it completely locks up randomly, a hard power reset is required. I'm a long time Linux developer, and this does not look like a graphics driver bug, it looks like a hardware or mfg issue.

You probably want to stay away from this one.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great little machine. I built Kubuntu 9.10 on it right out of th box, didn't even boot into Vista (blowing away a brand new, never been used Windows distribution is *such* a good feeling!)

Everything just works.

Cons: It came with (ugh) Vista.

Other Thoughts: Excellent machine, great price.
