Good: its fast
Good: Screen size, keyboard quality, battery life
Bad: screen looks washed out, battery manager only works out of the box with an admin account on XP
Comment: Bought one of these for my girlfriend who is an academic and works in the library a lot. The screen size allows long use and can, after a fashion, just about let you compare two documents side by side.
Keyboard is straight from the NC10- great quality, but they could have made more of the extra space. As people have noted before, the arrow keys are small, and the windows keys (either side of the spacebar) have been swapped for some reason.
The battery manager programme is great- allows you to change power mode (battery saving, normal, max performance) without a reboot. However, programme is clearly designed to run with admin privileges. I got around this by giving my girlfriend’s account write permissions on the power management registry keys. Not ideal- if anyone has found a better way please let the world know!
