Arrived today, and I am pleasantly surprised. This is a fast little 'book, right out of the box.
The box was clearly opened once already, but the netbook is clean - both physically and digitally. Just a couple of small scuffs on its spine, but they are very minor and I haven't tried rubbing them out yet.
No private info on Xandros installation, and it booted into a startup "Enter your name" screen, so it appears to have been reimaged.
I am getting EasyPeasy 1.1 on a USB stick right now so I can try a different version of the OS. Asus desktop system works well enough, but it is not customizable enough for my tastes.
If anyone gets a new SSD to work, please let us all know what and how you did it.
