"Last October, after my third Sylvania netbook failed,
I took the refund I had received and bought an HP Mini 110 netbook
as a replacement. I ordered directly from HP and customized the
little machine to my needs, choosing a 16GB SSD over the 160GB
conventional hard drive. I also chose to upgrade the machine to 2GB
RAM but did it myself with after market RAM rather than pay HP's
rather inflated price for memory. My system came preloaded with
Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) and HP's now defunct Mi interface. I've
now had the machine for just short of 11 months and I am still
completely pleased with it.
"In my various articles about since late 2008 I've had numerous
comments about how netbooks are really toys, how they are
underpowered, how they can't do real work, and so on. I have a one
word reply: nonsense!"
