I have the Acer Aspire One 1GB ram 120GB hard drive.

I installed windows vista when I got it but now have windows XP running as the drivers are easier to sort out.

Best bit of kit I have ever bought :smashin:

Just been watching iplayer with no problems at all and the wi-fi connects faster than any other I have tried.

There are shed loads of threads in this forum section already on these. Search for 'netbook', 'MSI Wind', 'Advent 4211', 'Acer One', 'Asus', 'Dell Mini Note' etc etc etc

In a nut shell, and I'm just repeating the various threads that exist already, they are great for what they are designed to do.... browse the net and perform simple, 'light' tasks.

If you have a decent desktop PC to do anything intensive, a netbook is a good companion for internet use.
