Same as mine, tho I have 1GB ram and a slower 12GB SSD in addition to the
faster 4GB SSD.

4GB of SSD is plenty for a lightweight, wifi enabled Linux netbook,
as is 512MB ram. The LCD is 1024x700 with a Intel video chipset which it
100% Linux friendly.

Compare it to my $200 Palm Pilot, no wifi, 8MB ram, 16Mhz cpu with a b&w lcd

The EeePC900 has a 900Mhz Mobile Celeron, fast enuf to play movies, decode
mp3s, and run Open Office, Gimp, FwBuilder etc.

I really recommend this unit, its solid, and well built, tho not as pretty
as the Acer Aspire One, it's 100% functional.

Mine is one of my most useful tools.

And easy to add more ram and a mini pci SSD if you must, tho you'll probably
never need it.

If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to.  Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
