Updates on the Aspire 1410

January 23, 2010

A few updates, after some usage of the Aspire 1410 Netbook:

* Out of the box, the BIOS does not support the VT-x extensions. I found this to be a huge, glaring oversight. Fortunately, the latest BIOS rev, 1.3303, resolves this.
* The keyboard is springy and annoying, even though the full-sized keys are nice.
* The battery life is fairly decent, giving about 4 hours of runtime on the 4400mAh stock battery.
* Mouse buttons are a bit finicky, at times.
* Ubuntu support, while excellent, does have some minor issues.
* The dual Celeron CPU is very fast, and very useful, in this machine.
* The lack of the PCIe slot is really irritating.
* I should have gotten 2x2GB of PC2-800 memory, instead of PC2-667.
