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). :D

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.

it would be nice to see pictures of the internal layout. (sure theres not much to mod, but its fun to see how they fit it all in...and can be inspirational to those of us modding other builds.)
