Excerpt: [Editor’s note: Looks like the Sylvania Netbook we reviewed wasn’t a fully baked version. We’ll be getting a finalized demo unit soon and will update this post to reflect that.] Sylvania? Yeah, the light bulb people!
Pros: Has a real hard drive (80 GB) instead of flash storage. Includes three USB ports and an SD card reader. Comes in colors. Bright screen for this category.
Cons: Slower than a sedated slug at just about every app despite 1.6-GHz Atom chip and 1-GB RAM (standard 9 model includes just 512 MB RAM). Cartoonish styling. Considerably heavier than advertised (and the Eee PC 900) at 2.6 pounds. Far too buggy to be taken seriously.
