New toy: Advent 4211

I bought myself an Advent 4211 last week (you might know it as the MSI Wind; they’re essentially the same thing). So far, it’s lived up to expectations; there are just a couple of things to say…

  • Mine seems to have the decent Synaptics touchpad – read The Register’s review for the warning about the other one.
  • You really need to use headphones with it if apps you’re listening to don’t have a very good sound level – inevitably in a device this size, the speakers aren’t great, especially at full volume.

How the Linux install on it goes is something I shall let y’all know shortly…
