My specs were better than lappies way more expensive than mine. Thats how Acer works. Mine is fantastic and I'd recomend them in a heartbeat.

The price is great, especially with the $40 off, and when the next gen of Eee PC's come out, I'll be grabbing one of them for 'mobility' small, light, compact, and full of awesome (aka Linux).

Edit: Ordered! Came to 940 after taxes and $60 in coupons (I love RFD!)
