yeah. 1Gb Ram doesnt help at all. and its a shame the N series Atom processors cant see anything more then 2Gb ram which is one the the platforms/CPUs biggest short comings next to light gaming and 720/1080p video performance.

I Just picked up my new netbook yesterday with an AMD E-350 inside. and it is just great as ive already got W7 ultimate installed and kitted it out with 8Gb ram.

eh? the AO522 isnt it with a C-60 and HD6290? i had one a moment ago, unfortunately i sold it due to a financiale breakdown

or did they made 2 version one C-50 one C-60?

no no no im not making a Necro (netbook deserve some love they arent as powerfull as they could be but if upgrading win starter to a win 64 and pushin more ram in it they do fine)

I only paid $150 for it and it's been a really good laptop that does everything including light gaming (for a netbook that is amazing!)

Pros:
Build quality as compared to an EEE PC

[/IMG]
The accessibility to components and an extra spot for another WLAN or bluetooth adapter
Good battery life
Good value
The mouse I cannot stress enough how superior the Thinkpad mice are to anything else on the market.
HDMI audio or video out - Haven't used it yet but a nice thing to have.

Cons:
Screen - Colors and viewing angle - make it a bit wonky for editing photos
Combined headphone/microphone 3.5mm jack

If IBM/Lenovo made one of these things with an aluminum body and IPS screen I would pay any price for it.

BTW, sporting the Aspire One D250 as seen in my sig. It's alright, considering I didn't pay anything for it. :p

Thinkpad Edge?

I still want a T60 with a dock :)

I haven't used my intel atom eee PC hardly at all after getting it.

It feels like a cheap toy in comparison and the touchpad is unbearable.

However the EEE PC with its 9 cell battery still holds some advantage over the Thinkpad

That's not to say that the Thinkpad doesn't have above average battery life though because it does last a long time.

your spec is Identical to my HP DM1 (3200SA) the only real difference is apart from looks/cosmetics is i have a 240Gb Sandisk Extreme SSD & Win7 Ultimate x64 installed on mine.

Recommend you upgrade to an SSD too. though dont expect miracles. the E-350 is a weak CPU and even though the SSD benches in atto around the 550mb/s read mark boot up and load times are bottlenecked by the CPU which i find gets overwhelmed quite easily. once windows is fully loaded up though, the experience is pretty decent, not great by any standards as it will still slog like running knee deep in mud when it comes to medium/heavy multitasking.

for firefox, a few tabs open and MPC running in the background its perfectly fine.

I would defintely look to go with an Intel i3 or i5 with my next laptop though.

I can't wait for these new batches of APU's from AMD to pop out. I am still running my Gateway with an Athlon L310 stuffed into it just waiting on the good ones to pop out.

SSDs are too small and expensive right now.

I was thinking Velociraptor because eventually I'm going to need space for upwards of 200gb of music.

well I paid $189 for my 240GB Sandisk Extreme quite a few months back. Ive got a 32GB SD memory card in the card reader to store my collection of MP3s and the 320GB hard drive i had in this netbook before i put the SSD in has gone into an external enclosure - I have plenty of space

SSDs have been dropping in price. though SSD prices have gone back up slightly. my SSD now sells for $230 brand new so in theory I made my purchase at a really good time.

I upgraded the older 160gb WD Caviar Black to a 750gb WD Caviar Black (wd7500bpkt) and it seems like the battery life has really taken a noticeable dip but it could just be a placebo.

Atleast now I can fit everything needed. Might eventually get a W520 desktop replacement and put an SSD in this but for now it's a wallflower.

yeah the EEE 900A
In that case

4.2.2 has some issues with randomly shutting off but once they fix that it'll be nice.

Other than that it's very smooth and everything works right out of the box with the EEE PC

Just wanted to say that I will probably get a Thinkpad e130 pretty soon. Looks good and have the graphical horsepower to play some games (Paradox games namely). My sister had the e135 (which is the same but with the AMD e-1800 in it instead), and I am a big fan of it. The e130 seems to be a bit cheaper though, so I'll go with that.

Edge series..hmm.. Haven't heard good things about it.

If you have trouble with it the x230 is very good (better build quality, ips display, i5, still manages up to 8 hours of battery life)

Edge series..hmm.. Haven't heard good things about it.

If you have trouble with it the x230 is very good (better build quality, ips display, i5, still manages up to 8 hours of battery life)
What things not good have you heard? Also, the x230 might be nice but an ips model id like 3x the e130. I was pretty impressed with the overall quality of the e135 tbh. Nice keyboard with no flex, sturdy...
