Is this the Acer Aspire one?
I installed a Three Ireland 3G modem on one of those
for a friend a couple of days ago, using the instructions here:
(thanks Mikhail and Andrew!).
It was running some fedora 8 derivative and while
the 3G modem worked on my fedora 8 laptop out of the box,
whereas the aspire distro required fairly extensive tweaking.
Also I'm working with a v4l developer currently who is
having major issues with alsa sound on these devices.
Bootup was around 10s which was impressive.
9" screen was great (can't remember the resolution).
Keyboard was too small for me (kept hitting q for tab)
Given my hour or so messing around in the terminal,
I was a bit more impressed than with the Eee I played with.
