Do you think anyone is going to try it yet?
I have a netbook with XP, but I was thinking of upgrading but sometimes it struggles running a few apps.
I'd be interested to know your thoughts on if it's possible, I mean I thought 1GB RAM and a decent processor was all that is needed?!

Not sure, with Windows 7 predicted to be a big player in the netbook dept I don't think its worth taking that step into it. Vista runs so much better with 2+ as well
We have been testing the Samsung NC-10, MSI Wind, Acer Aspire One, and Toshiba NB100 netbooks with Vista. All are upgraded to 2GB of RAM (except the Acer, which has 1.5 IIRC). They are all running pretty well.
With 1GB they were noticeably slower. I would definitely recommend the upgrade if you are serious about getting the most out of them with Vista.
The HP21233 is great it looks great and runs XP fine for normal webby and office stuff!
the memory upgrade is easy the module is under the keyboard 3 screws that you get at by removing the battery and since the 2GB is only 20 quid its a worth while upgrade!

I'm looking forward to test the newer 2140 soon... all our year sevens have there own 2133..
we did stick win7 beta on a 2133 to see I think it was running OK but I didn't do it my self personally... all our 2133s have 2GB as we bought them that way
I have a 2133 with xp for work and its brilliant. My brother has a 2133 at home with vista on it and its painfully slow to startup a few times when i have used it i thought it had hung and was about to restart it before it suddenly started loading vista!
I've got a demo 2140 on my desk with Vista on it and it seems to run Vista better than the 2133s do. I'd still prefer to stick XP on it though. I'm not a Vista hater by any means, but I don't think it's the right choice for a netbook. Saying that, I have run Windows 7 on an Asus 1000H and it ran like a dream, so that will be the OS to go for when it's eventually released, I reckon.
Hello, by the way!
We have Vista on a couple of netbooks and it seems to run fine.... well as fine as Vista runs!
