After playing with my new netbook the last few days I am very impressed for the $400.00 I spent inlcuding a case and windows xp. I have loaded Sound Devices Wave Agent, IAS frequency software, Open office and PDF Reader. I plan to add BWF Widget Pro soon as well. The computer starts up quickly, and also allows for easy internet surfing. The hardest thing though was getting use to Windows XP again, As someone who has been a Mac user the last 4 years I remembered why I hated windows so much. But overall a great purchase that will help me work more effectively.
