One of the most comfortable keyboards we’veused on any mini-notebook. Sleek and solid build makes other minisseems like flimsy toys. Grown up hard drive means you’ll have 120- and160-GBs at your disposal. Beautiful, scratch resistant 8.9-inch screen

Feeble Via processor doesn’t do the job — atleast with Vista. Tiny trackpad and awkwardly placed left and rightbuttons makes navigating difficult
