    I love my Acer Aspire One. I prefer SSDs in principle but the one that ships with this is very slow, so I'd take that into consideration. The hardware itself is great looking and works well.

    I wouldn't get a POV Mobii from the USA. Especially since they come from The Netherlands. There seems to be a lot of them for sale in Germany, at least that is what I think the .de means. The red one seems to be the cheapest.

    POV Mobii RED
    POV Mobii WHITE
    POV Mobii BLACK

    I hope it doesn't seem like I'm "Pushing" this netbook. But I would consider one for myself, if it had an extra slot for a wireless broadband card.

    Trading standards mate, unsuitable for purpose, they must give at least 30 days for refund. I have a Packard bell and I think it rocks running suse 11.2 everything out of the box.

    Ah well, even if that's the case I'm still over; it's more like 4 months. I think I'm going to take the replacement but to be honest that keyboard will probably break in no time at all anyway and they will soon realise I can't be trusted with the Eee

    I hate to hear the 901s are having keyboard issues. I've had three of the previous EEEs the "Surf" model that first came out and all three are still going strong for me with no hardware problems...

    Only 7 days????
    You have a right of full refund under the Sale of Goods Act. You can return it of "unmerchandisable quality" If they persist in refusing to accept it (unlikely) tell them you will be filing a complaint with the Trading Standards Office

    I thought it was a bit off but I've sent it back now, costing me 10! If they send me a new one I'll just return it within the 7 days

    Before I inherited/purchased my wifes Acer Aspire one and I also own A Asus 900 4igig/16gig SSD I was checking out,

    NorhTec - Products

    Base model is cheap but the Netbook is highly upgradeable. Have no need for one now but it looked interesting just the same.
