So I had to send the laptop back to MISCO today.
1. Sound was absolutely rubbish from the built in speakers, so carrying extra speakers would kind of negate the advantage of such a light laptop.
2. In Vista, Sys properties and sys info would show 8GB ram available. Only Task Manager and proper diags would show the proper 1GB RAM. XP did not have this problem, ie: it showed 1Gb everywhere. So i had no idea why Vista showed a wrong value.
