Excerpt: I got this machine after using a Dell Mini 9 for almonst 2 years. See my review here . My biggest problem the Mini 9 was the keyboard size so I decided to slightly bigger machine to see if that worked better for me. I'm, overall, very happy with this machine. However, I had to do a little big a work to get it there: It came with Windows 7 installed which was too slow for the 1GB of RAM this machine had. The first thing I did was remove Windows and put Jolicloud on it.
