Hi a general question regarding the 1012 I guess I needed info fast, I'll try ironing out the bugs etc during the week. Thanks, if all the things don't work I' might go to windows 7 starter Just to get all the functionality of this netbook up and running

thanks in advance

ps. What did I do wrong?

Do you run Ultimate with Aero or Basic theme?

If with Aero, do you notice much of a hit on the battery? I am running Ultimate and find it runs much better with Aero enabled, but it does seem to drain the battery more than if I run it using a Basic theme..... just wondered if you noticed the same?

I think my system is a hybrid. I got the 6hr battery and the wireless n minicard. proc. n450@1.66 vid card no data with 7 but I paid 299 when I ordered. And the 6hr battery and wireless n paid off compared to the newer model. These things aren't meant for intensive stuff anyway. They are fun comps. no Hdmi or bluetooth methinks. As for your quest. Don't really know. Just updated it and stuff haven't done all the fine tuning as yet will let you know in the morn. Wireless is a go

mozilla is a go and doing windows live now

thx,

well just outside of the box, aero will be graphic intensive and if it is. There goes your battery life. You really can't have your cake and eat it too. LOL
