Yippee! Posting from my new netbook!

Just got it today! Love it! It was the one that I posted from woot the other day. Of course, I downloaded the Sony software and when I try to log in it won't let me, but then again I'm at the bar and my connection sucks.

But regardless, I love it! Squee!!!!

ah one of the new ones. Do they have a better keyboard than the old 8.9 inch model?

Edit: that's a whole lot of memory!! :P

Congratulations! Which OS did it come with? Are you eligible for the free upgrade to Windows 7?

It is obviously broken down already, since she doesn't answer.

Maybe 160 Gigs of RAM isn't enough [running away to hide].

Windows can't handle that kind of configuration. Obvious development flaw from Acers side. Shame on them.

I do believe dear lilac has confused RAM memory with storage memory. The latter she has 160 GB. Anyway, congratulations.

YAY !!! I bought the 8.9" model on July 4th,as at the time when I was purchasing it from a friend who got it as a gift and didn't want it,I still had my Sony TZ laptop which has an 11" screen...getting the 10" seemed too close-and I LOVE having the netbook.I am just finally getting around to setting it up with my reader,and that's been a nightmare. One of the first times I used the netbook was to use wifi from my nail salon during a pedicure appointment-I've sinced toted it around town.And my timing could NOT have been better,after a sudden death of the HD on my Sony TZ (but I should have it back in 2-3 weeks). How do you like it so far ? I'm thinking of getting one for my dad. I also have the 160GB HD - my other half wanted this one,but he got a great deal on a floor model at Datavision in June -they screwed up and sold him the 16GB one,he's had some minor issues with it-but overall has loved it,and the freedom it allows (especially since without a job currently,also went his company issued laptop)-and I am finding I feel better about not possibly ruining my expensive ultraportable. I am presently posting from outside while having a nice refreshing beverage

Thanks to RWood, for pointing out my mistake. In my defense, I was at the bar (nothing to do with me knowing nothing about computer hardware!). It has XP on it, and yes, you can load Windows 7 on it. I just need to get Office on it though.
