I have an NC10 which is similar in spec it appears. Ramped up the RAM to 2gigs for less than £20 (Corsair).The Atom is not the most powerful chip in the world but this little machine works very well as long as you realise that it is not designed for heavy duty use. I use it for browsing as I have a wireless connection and I can sit around the house and play. Runs Open Office ok and Commodo Firewall, PC tools A/V and A squared free. I bought a Trust Bluetooth mouse from Amazon which works like a dream. Minor nag is the shiny case gets covered in fingerprints but a microfibre cloth sorts it.
