I have the same problem with this as I have with household chemicals. The names of your products should not make me want to consume them.

Yep. I've always laughed at how people reference food or drink when talking about the colors of things. Also the name of the netbook series made me chuckle. "Aspire One Happy 2". All I could see in my head was Homer Simpson saying "SUPER FUN HAPPY SLIDE!!"

That's the problem right there. when will netbook manufacturers realise that 1GB of RAM, be it DDR3 or DDR300, is not enough for long term usage. The extra GB wouldn't have pushed the price up by much and the end result would have been a lot better computer.

Google names Android versions after deserts...but I'm not going to eat my phone.

The ram is sad...1GB isn't even enough for last year, let alone the future or even this year.

None of those things sound like features.

The specs on newegg.com states that its MAX MEMORY capacity is only 1gb. They are selling ones that come with a 3 or 6 cell battery. At least the processor is dual core though.
