| I've been totally satisfied with the Sylvania g Netbook Meso. No, the 
| hardware isn't perfect but the design issues I pointed out are all minor 
| issues which haven't detracted from my computing experience. Performance is 
| excellent, as in more than good enough for me to use the Meso for literally 
| everything I normally do on a computer without feeling like I'm missing 
| anything. The netbook is solidly built and still lightweight enough to go 
| anywhere.

| Although traditionally known for its electrical and lighting products,
| Sylvania has also licensed its name to other manufacturers to expand its
| product lines. The latest entry is in the rapidly growing market of netbooks.
| Produced by Digital Gadgets, which previously specialized in various mobile
| electronics and accessories, Sylvania's g Netbook Meso is similar in many
| ways to its more well-known competitors. Measuring 9-x-7-x-1.25 inches, it
| weighs approximately 2.2 pounds without battery.

| Our test unit was loaded with Ubuntu Netbook Remix, but Windows XP Home
| Edition is available as an option. The interface of the operating system is

Invasion of the Netbooks: New systems from Asus, Acer, and Sylvania

| Sylvania g netbook: It's superlight and weighs less than 2 pounds. It's a lot
| like the original Eee PC, in that it's $399, and it has a 7-inch screen, plus
| a custom Linux operating system. It has a 30GB standard hard drive (good)
| and, like the HP 2133 Mini-Note, a 1.2GHz VIA C7 CPU, instead of Intel's Atom
| or even Celeron M (not so good).
