My System Specs


Yeah, it's usable, and I'm not overly concerned about any of the extras on a netbook. I was a bit surprised though when I discovered that you couldn't even set a theme on it... :)

Managed to get everything working using the vista drivers. I really wish that notebook/netbook manufacturers would stick with one set of hardware for each individual model # / name.... too many times I've gone to get drivers only to discover that they've got both intel and amd systems under the same name, which I can live with if I have to, but the problem then becomes the peripheral hardware (like sound, nic, etc.....) which isn't listed by name in device manager.
