  • Summary: Then only thing that's a negative is Via`s poor Linux support, put in a 64gb ssd and 4gb ddr3 and this box rocks

Good for what it is...

Ryan M., Newegg
24 February 2012
  • Summary: I was able to install Windows XP and Windows 7 using an SD card without any issues. The free wintoflash utility quickly turned my XP CD or Win7 DVD into a bootable SD card. After the machine completely died, I returned it to NewEgg to purchase the AD10 instead (hoping that the DP would work with an...
  • Pros: Size. The pictures make it look small, but it is just plain tiny. Runs Windows 7 fine - forget anything else (see other thoughts). The processor performed better than expected, it exceeded the performance of an Atom 330.
  • Cons: Unfortunately there were a few issues. 1. The one I got completely died after about 5 days. When I say dead, I mean like paper-weight dead.

Blinding fast booksize

Hal...
  • Cons: The VX900H IGP. While the processor blows the Atom away, the graphics are humbled even by Intel HD 2000, let alone the nVidia ION and ION 2 on more high end Atom systems.

Two weeks: Dead

Markybooo, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: System was running for two weeks, then died. Working to get a replacement now. System is very sluggish when installing Windows for the first time. The install goes quickly once you have the chip-set drivers installed. **Update** (Oct. 13th 2012) I sent the unit back to Zotac which they replaced.
