OK, I know this is a Mac forum, but this is semi-relevant, so hear me out. I have an HP Mini 1030NR netbook. Its got the usual 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB RAM, and GMA 950, as well as a 16GB SSD. It came with Windows XP SP3 installed. I've had this thing for seven months now and still am not really, really happy with it. I mean, I love the size - I think the ~2.5lbs and 10" screen are great (though I really would like one of the 1366x768 screens). However, I've been continually "tweaking" this thing from the day I bought it. Here's what it has been through: 1) Came with XP. Originally I just loaded everything willy-nilly like I would any other machine. 2) Realized I put too much crap on it, both in terms of drive space and performance. Reinstalled XP and started over. 3) XP is a dog on these netbooks. I decided to try HP's MIE (Ubuntu). Works great, but too limited (can only install HP-approved programs). 4) Took off MIE and installed REAL Ubuntu. Probably the best netbook OS, IMHO, but I couldn't play any of the streaming videos (mostly TV shows) that I liked. 5) Tried Windows 7 Beta (and later RC). Too slow. 6) Re-installed XP. Found a bunch of SSD tweaks for XP. Sped up the thing considerably, but its still laggy as can be. 7) Decided to try and hackintosh the Mini. Currently running Snow Leopard (still dog slow). Insert any/all of the usual hackintosh caveats here. I've just about had it with thing! I absolutely love the size/form factor, but its almost unusable, either due to speed (Windows), incompatible OS (Ubuntu), or difficulty in keeping running (SL). I would give just about anything for a machine that "just worked" and was netbook size. For that matter, if I thought I could make decent money off this HP, I'd sell it and by a 12" iBook/PowerBook. Sure it would still be slow, but at least it wouldn't be one headache after another!
