Really updated review


Smooth running, cool, low power draw. Can be set up to do accelerated high-definition video with Windows media player, flash, and Microsoft's flash. The very newest Linuxes have 3.2 and 3.3 kernels that make using the sound chip easy

no real support from asus for this thing yet ; Paid premium for Windows 7 just so i could use Netflix = lame ; Lots of ASUS bloatware to be removed
