    rember the old Java/Sun OS that was so bad ass 4 years ago or something that never came to be? I think it was called project looking glass...

    well, read this:
    skip the google stuff.. who cares about android :D
    FT.com / Companies / Technology - Acer to launch Google Android notebook

    oracle finishes Sun buyout, and it releases project looking glass?

    thoughts?

    This looks very promising. I hate Windows, even in mobile apps.

    Still wouldn't buy one. And if I was given one, I would toss that shit on ebay.

    The ability to mass produce shit products and sell them at discount rates thus making them "the third largest producer of PCs" says that they have fast assembly lines and make fast food flavored PC garbage.

    Between myself, girlfriend, brother and mom we have 4 Acer Aspire One's. My girlfriend is the only one to have any issue so far with one. And Acer's customer support is being a fucking douche cannon. It has been back to the factory 4 times and the freezing issues her machine is having still isnt fixed. Its fine as long as you dont shut it down. It freezes on bootup 9 out of 10 times. Other than that they all work just fine.

    ive sold MANY acer laptops as onsite refurbs, and only had one come back.

    chances are your GFs machine has bad memory.
