I bought this specifically as a great portable way to access the internet during business travel. Unfortunately, it only rarely recognizes wireless networks, and I checked to make sure it was searching. If it does occasionally recognize the one in my house, it will only do so momentarily. It also freezes up with some regularity. Trying to figure out how to send it back even though I tossed the box a week after getting it (and initially loved it). If anyone knows any tips, please share!
I bought this to load OSX onto to it but it worked so well out of the box I decided to use XP. For me, that is a bold statement. Wifi, Skype, iTunes, etc. just worked so well this is now my traveling companion even though I have a MacBook. Highly recommended.
The external power supply failed after 3 weeks but for $10 I ordered a new one which I thought would be easier than dealing with a RMA.
Bought this little refurb unit for the portability and to use for surfing and emails. Enjoyed it until the screen started to have problems about a month after I received it. Decided to return and buy something new.
I do have to say that my purchase/return experience with Buy.com has been good so far.
We purchased this to replace a DVD player that became picky. It has worked great for watching converted DVDs and surfing. Great size for portability, bult-in N-draft wifi is amazingly fast.Pretty good battery life, Found out about and installed Jolicloud set up a dual boot- interesting simple OS , XP is original OS - which works great.
