I have used Acer Aspire One for three years now. It was very easy to install good programs like Gimp, Skype, gedit, mysqlserver, php5, apache, OpenOffice and so on the the original Linpus machine. I even installed Mobile Broadband with Huawei E169 but that was not easy.
However I changed to Ubuntu and it worked very well.
Today I have installed Fedora 14 -i386 and the machine is perfect. I connect to mobile Broadband through Huawei E1820 without problems which was not possible with Ubuntu.
I do like my Aspire One with LINUX

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
