Had mine for a few days now, and am overall pleased, though I do wish it had more hard drive space. But that is why Bill Gates invented jump drives and external hard drives. (Kidding, btw.)
I ended up ordering the 2G memory. Good grief, remember when we were all thrilled to have 512MG? But it runs a little slowly at times, so instead of being frustrated with my otherwise cool new toy, I went ahead and got it.
