-I didn't care for the touchpad at first either. But, a simple adjustment of the sensitivity in the ETD sw took care of it.
-The SD card sticking out the side is a minor annoyance, at worst.
-I have no idea what the issue one might have with the hdd, as it appears to be fast, quiet, and cool. (I'm gonna try swapping it with a 7200rpm hdd for a Win7 install, though.)
-The screen looks great - bright and crisp. I am not suffering pixel envy over a measly 24 pixel difference in vert rez.
-The only true justifiable complaint with the Mini10 is the fixed RAM. But, I have tweaked XP so it has only 26 processes running, including AV, and it runs quite fast. But, yeah, I wish I could upgrade it to 2GB.
For $269 currently at the outlet, how can anyone really complain about about the Mini10 with it's good looks, solid build quality, excellent keyboard, and HDMI output? (OK, the shiny black lid is a fingerprint magnet. That's a very valid complaint. But, nobody's mentioned that one.)
