ACER Aspire One A0751-1279

I love this little machine. As netbooks go, it has a good screen size (11.6" 1366x768), is great on the battery, looks good, runs great.

The only issue I have is the psb (poulsbo or GMA500) drivers for the video will no longer work with the xorg 1.7 system shipping with most of the current Linux distributions. So, I am facing a dead end and I blame Tungsten Graphics and INTEL.

I will be more careful to read the product announcements in the future.

AMD and ATI ... I hope you are watching.

========================

Update: AdamW has the psb drivers working with Fedora 14
