Every brand of wireless router I've ever owned starts to do that after a while. SMC, D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, 2-Wire. They all started acting goofy after a while.

Tell them you want an RMA for the crap drive and full credit back to your card, not a store credit. If they refuse, just contact your credit card company, and dispute the charge.

The Synaptics software gives you plenty of ways to customize the trackpad. Having had both a 1010 and a 1011, I will choose the 1011 any day of the week.

I returned mine using that as the official reason on the RMA. I also didn't care for the GMA500 video.

My 10v is way better, and actually cost less than the refurb 1010 I returned.

How can an OS be out of stock? The drives are imaged from a server.

I wonder what a spindrive gets? I removed the 120GB hdd before installing Win7 directly to a Vertex SSD. My scores:

CPU 2.2
RAM 4.3
Graphic 2.1
Gaming 3.0
Primary HD 6.8

Windows 7 on my 10v. Runs extremely well, as Tom points out.

(Tried it on the Mini10, as well. But, it was a sick dog on that one.)

Win7 just sucks on the 1010 (Mini10). OTOH, it rocks on the 1011 (Mini10v). Not only does the 10v have a better chipset, meaning better video and disk i/o, it is upgradable to 2G RAM. (It's a pain to...
