    I see the bluetooth program but it doesn't start for some reason. I turned the bluetooth function in services to automatic but still nothing. There's an Acer service centre down the street that I'm going to take it too.

    Another problem that I'm having is the webcam. There are no drivers for it on the support page.

    On the bright side the little N550 processor plays N64 roms quite nicely. I'll be bringing this and 2 controllers to my local watering hole for a little Mariokart and Mario golf action...:rockout:

    Having those 4 threads makes it seem so beefy...:laugh:

    i call it a netbook once it lacks an optical drive, "Looking at you macbook air", so come on in

    i Have an ACER AOD150

    Atom N280
    1GB DDR2
    160GB HDD
    Windows 7 Ultimate

    I use "zoom player" and "arcsoft total media theatre" to get the smoothest playback up to 720p

    dont have an antivirus installed as i dont really see the need for one on windows 7, if i upgrade the ram i might install security essentials

    recently watched the family guy christmas special on this baby under battery power and after 45mins of full screen viewing, the battery as still at 82% so undervolting does not seem necessary to me

    Plants vs. Zombies is about the only game that I can play with the touch pad, though I do have Star Trek Armada on it as well.

    You can add me to your list. I have an Acer Aspire One.

    I have played N64 roms that's it. I'm gonna try COD 4 to see if the 4 threads make it playable.

    i would like to see that actually, the ION makes most games work great, but the CPU is a let down in some games, it should work okish on your pc

    I have a MSI Wind U230.

    Dual Core AMD Athlon Neo X2 1.6Ghz
    4Gb OCZ DDR2 800Mhz - 3.4.4.8.12
    128Gb Kingston V+ SSD
    AMD 3200 GPU @ 650Mhz (Using ATITool)
    Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

    Sweet little rig. But man does it have a weak battery. I purchased an extra battery for extended trips otherwise, watching a HD Video (2hrs) eats up about 60% of the battery.

    Fear everything as low as can go 800*600.

    I think the small screen makes it seem more playable than the numbers show.

    It has a 12.1 screen 16:9 1366x768

    Scored 1100 in 3dmark06 out of the box. Haven't tested it since installing ram,ssd, oc'ing video card, and tightened ram timings a lot.

    Also for anyone running an AMD GPU using AMD Overdrive you can OC the crap out of it. Think my stock speed was 500Mhz, easily runs at 650Mhz... but only recommend doing that while plugged in.
