As a Wind clone owner (Advent 4211) I must point out a few things.





Firstly the keyboard. It is still one of the better netbook keyboards out there. Samsung netbook keyboards are poor by comparison (not found an N120 to try yet). Agree about the Compaq 700's KB but it is matched by Dell's Mini 10. KBs from Asus about same as Wind.





Which version of the touchpad does it have, Synaptics or Sentelic? This is important to Wind owners. You also oddly call the touchpad "square". Loving the two buttons - the pivoting bar is poor.





On the screen, you call it average but then go on to praise it. In use the screen on my Wind clone has been superb. It is readable in very bright summer daylight.





I wonder if they've swapped out the rubbish internal fan. If not then at least when it gets noisy you can open up your "Wind" and put a drop of 3-in-1 on the bearings and cure the problem. The touchpad can be modded too to put a Synaptics one in. I've not had to do this though as mine was an early Advent with the better part.





At this low price, including the larger battery, I think we have probably the netbook bargain of the summer. Might pick one up for a hackintosh project.
