Hmm, I wonder.
I wonder if this is Hackintoshable!
Given its unparalleled success in the mobile phone market, it was only a matter of time before Nokia tried its hand at creating a laptop. The Finnish manufacturer isn’t keen on its Booklet 3G being called a netbook, though. Instead, ‘mini laptop’ is the preferred term. But with features such as 10.1in screen and Intel Atom …
Why, oh, why do manufacturers insist on messing with the keyboard layout. Having the Fn key where Ctrl should be would be a deal breaker for me. I use Ctrl constantly for copy and paste and for numerous other VS shortcuts. I use Fn to change the brightness of the display and turn off wireless when I want to conserve battery power or when I plug in an external monitor - in other words, not in normal usage but for a very specific action.
If I want to use one of these devices I have to break years of muscle memory - I think I'd decide it's not worth the hassle.
It's perfect for us Mac users....
Seems a decent product, premium not bargain basement but the fact the specs are utterly identical is shameful.... however one thing, having a pop at the lack of Aero interface or Media Centre on a netbook (i know it was in reference in Win 7 Starter) is a bit harsh!!!
too expensive for a non apple product... again and again, i am glad i didnt bother with a netbook and went straight for a 13" macbook pro, ok it was 400 quid more than this, but i get a real computer and a 5 hour battery.
for all those who say macs are too expensive for what they are... go and get one, you will change your mind a week.
Although IMHO £400 to be free of that shite that M$ peddle makes it worth it alone.
I got the Aspire One version with 3G modem built in for £196 without contract (Three SIM works fine) .. so better antenna and no dongle 8-)
The nokia does look very nice and rather Macbook Pro like ... have to agree that HDMI out and no LAN seem odd choices but not a deal breaker ... however the price is the deal breaker, even without a contract they would sell shed loads if they halved the price.
Well, not in the middle of the Atlantic. I too would have like to see a LAN port.
Why on Earth didn't the reviewers have a bash at loading Ubuntu on it? It would have been nice to know if it was more useable under that, and also if the built-in 3G worked out of the box on Linux, like some of the Huaweii devices do.
This looked interesting...but then like others sub-par net books this sports the uber awesome super fabulous "OpenGL failure" known as a "Intel Graphics Processor". To may program's Need OpenGL these days for manufactures to continue supplying computing devices like net books with the _deficient_ Intel _Graphics_ processors.
Perhaps the execs foisting these products are a bit clueless about the software market their devices are supporting these days
