I made the mistake of buying one of these in the netbook craze. I tried a couple of different Windows builds down to "lite", and then went Ubuntu. I would have to say that IF you could qualify it as operational at it's best, that was it. Loved the form factor but have to consider how much this played into the "death" of the laptop.

It appears in real world review and testing that the sweet spot seems to be with the 1700 model right now. Price to performance many people are poo poo-ing the single thread performance and lack of real OC with the 1800x model. Most of that seems to come back to mobo support, for now. We shall see.
