    When will you have another video up of you using this netbook? I’m considering buying it tommorow night , do you think it is possible for you to have it up before then?

    I won’t have another video up that soon, the review should be up after Christmas, next week basically.. first impressions it’s not that bad really, but I am having a problem getting the WiFi to work with encrypted system, works fine with open system though… it’s very basic so don’t expect too much from it, the one thing that bugs me is that there is no flash in the browser at all, so any flash based websites will not work at all

    Guess I’m confused when you say it doesn’t support flash. So when they say…

    “This unique design FULL-FLASH desktop, is perfect for the light business traveler, student, and every kid wanting to enjoy the experience of exploring the world of broadband multi-media!”

    … are they talking about the flash storage or…?

    The features also list a Flash player and the uses include “Flash movies and games”. Is it just not embedded in the browser to display flash on a site or does this unit not actually support flash?

    This was really helpful! I couldn’t find so much information anywhere else. Now I know that this is a decent laptop, and I’m going for it!
