Nice review, especially interesting regarding the cooling, seeing what venting options work in such minute cases.
Unless a standalone HTPC, SSD is mandatory in my Atom/Fusion builds. It just brings the whole thing to life, even a cheap one - opened my eyes when the ol' Asus UL30A went from booting for 30 sec to booting for 3 sec via giving it a 90 GB HyperX 3k (a.k.a. the cheapest transfer kit I could find).
Bit surprised there's any model with <4 GB RAM now, but I guess they're really trying to cut the price with this one.
