i run potato on a sony vaio picturebook (pcg-c1xs).  i
luv it!  the short, wide screen took some getting used
to, but once i got everything sized right, it's my fav

i haven't dealt with the camera and usb, yet.  in the
meantime, though, i'm still having fun. 

(the reason i bought it was for portability.  i have
other lapboxes that are huge in comparison and they
feel like deskboxes sometimes when i have to lug them
around.  but not with the picturebook--it's light, yet
powerful (p400), with lots of room (12gb) and has 
great screen ram (4mb).)
