Any thoughts on this Netbook? I think this is my next machine. It will install OS X almost flawlessly, Ubuntu is a breeze and of course it ships with Windblows.... A triple threat!





Kinda cute, huh? Laughing

Gets a good review; see here. I wonder if they make a 6 cell model; the extra battery time is very useful. Best thing about it compared to my Wind is the Synaptics trackpad, which sounds pretty capable. On the other hand, I prefer black to white in a netbook.

The only bad thing I've heard about them is the heat it over 100*F on the keyboard when it's on for a while, I would love to get one though since they have the 34mm Express card slot. Otherwise I'm more interested in the Wind or the Acer depending on the RAM situation in the new one.

The Director of the IS dept. at my job recently got one and his is black. I wasn't able to play with it at all, so can't say much about it other than looks nice and I think Lenovo makes good computers.

I ended up getting an AAO but wanted a Wind or Ideapad as first choices.

I've seen one of these in person. The keyboard screams IBM/Lenovo quality, which means it feels really nice. I think there may even be a 12" model coming.

A 12" netbook would be nice, as long as it's in the 1-1.5 kg range.
