"As a whole? I love this netbook. It's fast, it's light, it's silent, it's pink and coming preloaded with Ubuntu 8.04 was quite nice. I named it Vespa (after Princess Vespa from Spaceballs). The screen is 8.9" viewable and has a default resolution of 1024x600 which makes for a very usable amount of space, and the fact that it's backlit makes the display itself brilliant and clear. The touchpad is appropriately sensitive and nice to use. When I close the lid it suspends properly. Out of the box everything works, I just tested my camera with skype this afternoon (it also came with a program called "cheese" that the camera works with)"
