The laptop arrived quickly and worked perfectly right out of the box (after charging the battery). Although the price is a bit high, and the keyboard is smaller than a standard laptop, I'm still satisfied since I knew this would be the case before I bought it. PROS: Works as advertised, software updates are available online, and there is a lot of information available on the net for tweakers or people that just want to learn more about the PC900 and what you can do with it. Although this is a Linux based computer there is no learning curve. All applications run from icons on the easy mode desktop. CON: Crumpled brown paper was used to pack the shipping box, and the box containing the actual computer appears to have been put flat on the bottom of the shipping box. Overall I really like this computer. In households with children, the smaller size makes this a great computer for kids to use it to the full potential.

Linux works flawlessly. No need to install windows xp although directions come with it for xp install if desired. Boots and finds wireless signal quickely. I can use logmein program to work on any of my windows machines that are at work or at home. It is not my primary computer but great for travel and to keep by my easy chair for net browsing. I think I could have saved $150 by buying one of the models with a smaller drive as I usually store any work on my networked computers.
