They're no worse than your typical modern (wintel) laptop.  There's a
little noise produced, and they do give off a little heat.

But considering they draw what... about 20W versus an equivalent x86
desktop which would easily draw 100W ... I'm not complaining. :-)

They're easily fast enough to get my day-to-day workload done.  Even
with big packages like OpenOffice.org.  Lemote have a version of OO.o
2.0 localised in Chinese... makes it fun for someone like myself who
doesn't speak the language to navigate -- but it works rather well.

I'm thinking I should attempt this on Gentoo at some point (I have it
going in a Debian Etch chroot, along with Java) ... but I'm not looking
forward to this -- it was 18 hours on my dual PIII 1GHz w/ 1GB RAM.  The
two boxes here run at the stock 660MHz, and have 512MB RAM (upgraded
from 256MB).
