    How are you liking yours???

    I may hold off if I can get Fedora on my laptop to boot fast, like 15 seconds like some people have been able to do.

    Overall, I'm very please with my AA1. However, I wish I'd held off buying one (purchased in August) until now, because Acer now offers a linux version with 1GB of RAM (over 512MG) and a 16GB SSD (mine is 8GB expanded to 16GB with an SD card).

    People are forever asking me about it whenever I'm using it at a wifi spot.

    The Asus that I got, came w/ a small, neoprene pouch to put it in. I took an old 17in soft laptop case that I had, put it inside there, and also put in a mouse, vehicle charger and about 4 thumb drives... It all fits in there quite nicely.

    Mobile Edge slip suit arrived last night. SWEET. Nice, thick padding and excellent construction. Interior flap keeps netbook from coming in contact with the zipper.

    My only gripe is that the exterior pocket isn't large enough to hold the AC adapter/brick. Then again, it's a slipcover, not a carry satchel.
