    Just pray that if it goes wrong you'll have better luck with Medion's lack-of-support than I did...

    I just took delivery of the acer for a family member:
    £193 ex + I added another gig of ram (£13) to give it 1.5GB
    slightly smaller screen 8.9", but larger disk @120GB

    dabs.com - Acer Aspire One AOA150-Aw Atom 512MB 120GB Linux White (LU.S040A.105)

    criticisms: - battery life (get an ee901 with ssd if you need battery life)
    linpus - acer made the same sudo 'mistake' that asus did. anyone can run anything as root !
    pros - fast, small, light, 2xsd expansions
