Yeah. They're a pretty nice, solid build. As you would expect nice and
lightweight. Also plenty of RAM (1GB) and storage (16GB SSD). We have one
dual booting ubuntu and windows.
My one complaint is the keyboard. The RHS shift key is teeny which can be
a bit of a problem. By comparison the Aspire 1 has three cursor buttons
set below the line of the other keys which frees up some space and things
seem a little nicer.
Besides that, they seem great to me.
