    They look quite good.

    I want one for me , they look like a perfect couch PC. Its unfourtunate about the battery life though when other units are pusshing 6-7 hours. I guess they don't have a touch screen though. I wonder if the screen is LED backlit adding to the robustness and battery life or the older type.

    Secondary school here and we were looking at the version below the Spin. Tried to get an eval unit from a company but no joy so far.

    I've been looking at these of late but unfortunately like most of the netbooks they come with XP Home which kind of ups the cost considerably for those of us who don't have schools agreements.

    not doing any promoting just saying they were great and i know a lot of schools who have gone with them as they give you a full solution.

    and plus the Fizzbook's are ace !

    great to see another happy fizzbook customer, which school are you based at Headt18 ?
