Excerpt: Sylvania? Yeah, the light bulb people! Turns out they also make a host of consumer electronics, including TVs, monitors and even remote controls. And now Sylvania is the latest to jump into the ultra-cheap mini-notebook game. Someone should have told them to look before they leap.
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.
