You know, all the netbooks have *really* similar specs, so in terms of performance, you're not going to be get a whole lot of performance variation.

Short of finding somebody here who actually has that model, I'm not sure if you're going to be able to get a clear review as to whether it's good or not.

The main thing you should probably do is swing by your local Best Buy (or some other computer store) and have your girlfriend check out the other 10.1" netbooks they have on display and see if she can work on the small-size keyboard and screen, i.e. see if it's usable for her.

You know, when it comes to laptop "reliability", if it's going to be sitting on a clean, dry, kitchen counter all day long, it's probably going to be fairly reliable. But if you're moving it around, dropping it on the sofa, etc, it might not last that long. It's not a toughbook, and it still has a spinning hard-drive in it, so you can't exactly toss it around like a rag doll =P

Personally, Gateway's part of the Acer Group of Companies, so I'm not sure I'd buy it based on that fact alone. Acer-Group systems haven't really inspired my trust and confidence lately... =P

How about an MSI Wind u-100? They're $30-$40 cheaper and have about the same specs. They also have a built in overclocking feature. Hit Fn+F10 while plugged in and you get an instant boost to 2GHz.
