Has anyone ever opened one up? The smaller the desktop, the bigger the hassle of repair. Netbooks? I am betting they will be so difficult that disposal is the best option. Cute though! I want one. A pink one!

Hello... we are going to put three netbooks through evaluation with our kids.
Charlie & Hector (and other netbook evaluators) -
We are planning a 'Netbook Roundup' at the FOSSVT conference on April 10th (http://www.ncose.org/?q=node/47). The hope is to have many different models for people to see, hold, try and to share thoughts, experiences and reviews. Any chance you two might be available to share some of the knowledge you have acquired?
Given the emerging theme of the conference - blending Open Source and Proprietary Solutions, it would be particularly valuable to have mix of experiences with both Linux and Windows based netbooks.
If you can't make it in person, any chance we could borrow a couple of your machines for display on 4/10? Though we are going to be giving away a netbook as a door prize, I promise it won't be one of the ones on loan!
