would a AA1 20gig SSD be capable of running a home network ie
lighting,heating,tv and amp control,projector,curtains etc that sort of thing?

if not would it be more than able to do the following?
email
forum surfin/postin @ a fast speed
youtube vids
bbc iplayer
ipod
network transfer files to another pc
usb 750 freegate harddrive
psp
skype and ooVoo with no problems
run wine

think thats it.forgive typin am on my psp.
want to be able to carry it round house thats why thought SSD a better choice?
thanks
 
Good choice. The rebadged MSI Wind is a superb netbook imo.

yea im glad I bought it. It looks real nice which was the final selling point. PC world price £279 and they offered the RAM upgrade plus laod all software for £440 to which I said no thanks! just asking the tech guys to send me a copy of my OEM windows that I payed for when I purchased this netbook.

can we say hoops and jump!

no not yet. They want me to phone them. Call me what ever but I said unless its a freephone number im not doing it as I've payed enough for this already. I would just like my OEM copy of windows I've payed for.

If I get no where I will pass the matter onto Trading Standards and see what they say.

Though they are prepared to send one out but want me to jump through multiple hoops at my expense first. Can we say (insert your own saying) :)
