Pros: It's fast, light, and runs longer on battery than most netbooks.
Cons: AMD C60 processor has all the features a current desktop chips would. While slower to save battery, it does have many of the features removed from the alternative Atom chips. However Acer has disabled AMD-Virtualization in the BIOS with no means to enable.
Overall Review: It would be a perfect netbook if manufactur's software was better.
Pros: Card is fast with many options for ports
Cons: Software is garbage, firmware clashes with onboard devices on two separate motherboards boards.
There is no support for recent Linux kernels. The "Open source driver" on their page is just a wrapper for a half dozen binary files.
Pros: More than enough power for ROHS doing everything a soldering iron needs to do. Extras include a magnetic switch hidden behind the faceplate to calibrate, lock, and change C/F. So much geeky over engineering, magnets and hidden switches.
Cons: A bit pricey, iron doesn't swap with welder's other pens, requiring only the PES51. If it only was a bit cheaper I'd give it five stars.
Overall Review: Picture doesn't include the magnet on a stick. Magnets, how do the work, can't explain that.
Pros: Plays an assortment of file types, works as either a mass-storage unit or media-transport so any software can load songs. I'm already found out it is also hackable and capable of running http://rockbox.org
Cons: Changing and usb plug isn't standard. Player only charges via usb->sandisk cable and places device in a non-playing state while charging. Might cause issues for others while using it in a car.
