So I couldn't wait or resist when I went to BestBuy to check it out again. I'm happy for the most part but I've definitely already seen a beach ball while uploading a few photos to facebook and flickr from iPhoto. Didn't last two long. BUT that's not to say this thing isn't fast. It's pretty darn responsive for its specs and size. A thousand times better than any netbook I've tried. I think it might be a keeper.
