Still have mine- works fine, but I bought a Nook Color and boot it with CM7 on an microSD card for travel.

I am taking both on a ski trip tomorrow. When I bought my Nook Color I thought that I would Root it too but It works just fine for light surfing on the net & email as it is. I even bought a 16 GB MicroSD. It is a great tool, but my wife likes her Kindle best.

just got osx installed a few days ago. 10.6.8 now looking at getting fusion to run.
I have ran xp win 7 and linux (sus, puppy and ubuntu) in the past on this. It may be "old" and the netbook fad is over, but I just love this little guy!

+1 here, 3 years strong. Use it everyday for work with Win7.

At home, I pop it into a larger monitor of course, and it's the perfect size when I go on the road.

Still have one. I use it in the garage to stream music while I work.

These used to be soooo popular. I'm surprised there isnt more in here.

Sold one, but still have my wife's own. it's more of an experimental OS machine for me. Recently upgraded the battery to the extended one and get 10+hrs life. I have run Ubuntu, win7, JoliOS, and now about to try win8CR.

Sadly, it's hardly used since I picked up some HP Touchpads.

Still use mine regularly for browsing with Lubuntu 11.10 & Chromium. The lightweight X window manager in Lubuntu rocks on this. Boots a lot faster than regular Ubuntu or windows and is quite responsive. Lubuntu works out of the box including WiFi.

I tinker with cars for a hobby and dual boot with XP to use the diagnostic software and a digital shop manual. Perfect size to perch on the dash or fender for quick reference while I'm working.

I still use it about 2 x more often than my dual core full-size laptop!

I got mine, thinking about putting the Win 8 Preview on it. I don't use it as much as I used to as I have a Galaxy S2 and I mostly use that.
