    Actually Best Bargain in the show was selling the same thing at $25....I didn't bother because I kena a few time like they just put the price list for fun, most likely they have no stock too

    Was there, cant believe you guys can take it? The crowd is insane, I could barely move. My group of friends wanted to get a monitor, a few hard disks, ear phones etc but in the end, we travelled all the way from the west there, walked in, struggled a bit, got the first hard disk we came upon ie Maxtor, and left. Bloody waste of time.

    I condemn Sitex and other exhibitions now. I'll rather pay more to shop in peace and comfort.

    Yup, can feel the hesitation once a while, probably due to the CPU throttle from power saving, but it was a split second thing so I can live with it....the other thing is the heat...surprisingly the base was pretty hot for little burger like this...it was comparable to my Pentium M notebook....I guess that's something the future model need to address

    One thing I would like to emphasis is when buying a netbook, you are buying the portability...the convenient....so do not expect it to perform like a normal notebook...after all we are paying less than half their price....if you can set your expectation right, then I think you should be very happy with any model that is available now

    No wonder those laptop coolers are selling like hotcakes in the SITEX

    Quite true. How about those UMPC. They are damn expensive but any idea on their performance?
