Good points. I've had no problem with the picture book and I was thinking
that it would be similar. On the picturebook the keyboard is just about
the size of a normal keyboard except no numberpad et al. To use as a basic
client box, that is good.

My concern, like yours, is that the Hard Drive itself is smallish, although larger
than my picturebook. I was wondering if it could be upgraded but at worst you can
slap a flash drive to the USB port and carry your music and videos. Also, I think
it has no speakers. I'll need to pick up a cheap pair of speakers somewhere. I
think I have a few sets.

Finally, there is no CD drive. If I wanted to convert it to Ubuta, I don't see
a way. I'm short cash though and this can some most of my most basic problems
for a usable portable and it is far better, IMO, than say a N800 tablet.
