Thats what I was going to say, I've got gigantic palms, and long fingers, and I still can't hit the right keys on the large keyboards sometimes. (I just blame my gigantic palms. )

Very nice, quite fond of them mini computers. I've been thinking of getting one like that for taking to school, writing notes, etc. You can practically fit it in your pocket :P

Nice mini laptop! Did you un-install the OS that came with it and installed XP? Coz I saw those at Tigerdirect but they only have the Linux OS on them though.

How much hard drive space do you have left after installing xp? What is the screen resolution?
May 12, 2008, 9:11 AM - Re: my new toy!!!
you can get it both ways. I got mine @best buy with xp preloaded for $399.99 the only thing I else I did was add ram. it comes with 512mb. screen resolution is 800x480 but you can run 800x600, you just have to scroll the screen up and down a little. after installing office, avg, yahoo messenger, firefox, vlc media player and k-lite co-deck pack I have 1.2 gigs free and i got a 4gig sd card installed for the d drive and also an 8 gig pen drive for more storage, and if i ever need to dock it to my main computer i have a 750 gig external that backs up all my goodies! another neat feature is it has no moving parts! no ide/sata hard drive. it uses solid state memory, which is faster then typical drives, and doesn't even have a fan.
