I have read confusing info on the web. Will a 1.8" 8mm thick hard drive fit into the Asus PC 901 after removing the 2nd SSD? Generally, the 8mm seems to get better $/GB over a 5mm drive.

One of the most important features is battery life?
With all these devices, it seems that that is still a question. The start to all these netbooks, the grandfather of them all, is the OLPC XO... and to date, no netbook can match the OLPC XO battery lifetime or the $10 user replaceable battery pricing (it's just too bad that the XO did not have larger or user replaceable RAM and SSD). And since I have not seen a mod of the XO to increase RAM and SSD then I suspect that such a mod is not possible?

120 GB HDD = 6 GB SSD?! Are SSDs really that expensive that if you wanted SSD instead of 120 GB HDD, you'll get only 6 GB?

Design looks good, in my opinion, but the side plastics look toy'ish in the last photo.

Does it sport a multitouch pad?

Maybe,if you put a real fast and high quality SSD in it,not that crap Asus puts in.

First real Wind competitor !

Looks snazzy. I doubt it'll make its way over stateside.

My sister bought the Acer One for her kids and loved it and the Linux that it uses is very easy so I dont get why LG has to settle on a 8 year old OS like XP and give no other option like all the other manufacturers do.

Im not getting my kids a Mac Air but Im not gonna have them use Windows and then have to worry about virus, spyware, malware, spysweeper, norton updates, running virus scans, adaware, spysweeper, tralalalallalala.
We are a Mac family and we gave all that WIndows fun up 4 years ago. After seeing the Acer One's ease of use, I dont mind having my children use a free OS like Linux that is secure and up to date.

Too bad, it looks very nice.

To the guy who doesnt want xp, you can always install Linux after you buy the xp model. Also, your blind hate for XP is just silly.

MSI company is selected for making this PC for LG....

This looks like a Wind because it basically is one. You'll see more Wind clones in the future as well since MSI is openly making their design available for modification and re-branding.

I just ordered one of these off of ebay from Canada. It was advertised with 3G but arrived minus the modem. I am very disappointed. I would like to avoid back and forth shipping in the hopes that the seller can just send me the missing 3G modem. Does anyone know if installation on these models is fairly straight and how I might go about it?

I have one and they don't all come with Bluetooth and 3G, they are additional options, if you get one without it i don't think there is anything you can do about it. I spent 20 mins shaking mine trying to get the simcard out because they left the slot open even though there is no modem.
