Coming from a first generation macbook, I am extremely impressed with how this netbook runs. It can play most games at low settings and the battery life is ~5-6 hours with moderate to light use. Fast, great battery life, can run several VM's at the same time. AR-9285 atheros wifi chipset supports injection, runs backtrack nicely, Ubuntu 10.4 runs fast, however the nvidia card is always on cutting battery life. There is a vgaswitheroo app but haven't tried it. I do pentesting and this thing is awsome, run my metasploit, do wireless attacks and run a few virtual machines and get fantastic performance and battery life. I have an ASUS G71 and this little guy is almost as fastDrivers are fully supported in Ubuntu 10.4 yet, hybrid video card doesn't work have to use nvidia all the time, network drivers took some time to setup. Had to delete the recovery partition to dual boot Ubuntu and Windoze. No recovery media, seriously can't they just ship it on a cheapo thumbdrive.Fantastic unit, great performance, battery life and a good size. I was affraid it was going to be too small but the keys are almost full size, and screen bright, and big enough to read and work on comfortably. Highly recommended.
