    Processor discontinued early 2008. The A110 processor runs at 800MHz - for those of you who have run Vista on an old machine, 'nuff said.
    For everyone else, just avoid - get a current generation tablet with Docs-to-Go for the same price.

    Also, <2h battery life, tiny physical keyboard with no backlight, Hitachi stopped making microdrives in late 2008.....
    If only it was this price in 2008!

    For the price this would be perfect for someone like my mother who is not Tech Savvy and needs a querty. Yes it doesn't have all the Bells & Whistles" but sometimes people don't want all of the "Bells & Whistles!"

      Actually, I suspect it would be pretty bad for someone who is not tech-savvy since a fair bit of tweaking would be required. The Amazon review estimates about $1000 worth of 'upgrades' would make it a great project PC, but good luck getting parts or with the inherent device fragility.
      Its not a question of "bell's and whistles" - its more a question of inherent usability today as opposed to 4 years back. If you want a small, basic device for browsing, email, voice-and video chatting, complete with full keyboard, look at netbooks (powered by Intels new Atom N2600+ or even the 570 family - <$250 at Amazon), Google ChromeBooks (<$300 at Amazon) or small PCs (eg HP's DM1z). I'll keep an eye out for deals.
