My Sony isn't actually that difficult to read on. It also comes with a built in magnifier for making text larger and easier to read.
I'm enjoying the keyboard so far, its actually spaced similar to a full size. So far I think I've made six typoes in 16 hours of use, which is pretty darn good.
I'm not a big fan of having Vista on this tiny thing (it went into boot loop last night) but once you disable all the bells and whistles, I think it takes a significant speed increase.
I'm not using it for much more than screwing off at work (EV-DO to avoid being babysat by our IT guy) and word processing....I've got a few older games to try on it for super spare time (Heroes of Might and Magic IV, Starcraft, Warcraft III) I may try to get WoW to run on it too....but I only get 5gb of bandwidth per month.
I agree on all the comments about using it for a reader, it just doesnt seem to be an option.. Especially with this 1600x1024 resolution or whatever this is.
