Ye I agree. Also the 1GB RAM with Windows 7, I wonder how that will affect it.

Nokia was late (again). Samsung and Asus already have mini laptops with 3g. Why did nokia add HDD that is that slow (4200) and glossy display?

With that prize (without taxes remember) i would expect ssd or at least 5400rpm hdd. It just isnt funny to see that your hdd is slower than your usb memmory stick.

This is kind of sad... Seriously a platter hdd? Any notebook that is billed as a "netbook" should be required to have a SSD just out of understanding that you will be walking/moving/etc while using the PC.

Oh and,
RAM: 1 GB, DDR2, 533 Mhz, soldered down

... hope there's an expansion slot.
