I am back on xp, got rid of all the samsung junk and now downloading a few software packs to test the ion. First battery charge lasted for 4hrs. I hope that will expand at least over 5hrs. I love the keyboard, I can really got type on it. Just the backspace key is a little small. Having the windows key at the right side isn´t that of a problem. Just using it for win+D to get to the desktop.
So after unpacking, I just charged the battery for the first time. Took around 90 minutes, than I got a green light. I waited 10minutes longer to be sure, and than booted it up. Man, there is a hole bunch of stuff.
First, Samsung asked me which language I wanted for the N510, English,German,French or Italian.
Than it installed it. After that I made a recovery partition of it. And finaly I could setup XP.
Oh man, the Samsung N510 is still supposed to arrive at my doorstep tomorrow morning. Amazon.de gives me hope that everything goes ok.

Oh man, I just got used to the T91. I really like the quality, the silence, having a ssd and of cause the touchscreen. But I´m missing a keyboard where I can type more than two words, without hurting myself and I really have thin fingers.
I tested WC3 on the T91, thought this would be realy nice, should run ok and should be fun using the stylus to navigate. But I was wrong. You can totaly forget it. Even with cpu on fast mode, it is slow, stylus commanding is not really working either.
So I started dreaming about a 11´ or 12´ Ion Netbook. Ok it is the totaly opposite of the T91 but men want always what they don´t have. And then Sascha from netbooknews just anounced that the Samsung N510 is already in stock on amazon. Just seen at the IFA in Germany and already on the market. I thought about it for 30 minutes and just orderd it. Should arrive on Monday befor 12pm. So stay tuned.
I just found a nice T91 Battery Eater Classic Test on youtube. So CPU constantly at 100%, display 100%, wifi on. It is 4hrs and 2minutes. That´s cool. Not that I think, that i need this setup, but it also shows, that with not much cpu use, display on 40% and maybe wifi of, the T91 my reach 5 1/2hrs. I have to test it, an maybe make a battery eater test myself. The t91 in the vid runs xp, interesting would also be how long will it last under Windows 7. Perhaps less because of insufficent drivers yet?
I am still working on the T91. Windows XP was fine, booting in 40sec and all driver and programs did run fine. Than I have tried Seven, man it was fast and good looking, but the driver didn´t work properly. Than I discovered the xp compatibily mode under Seven and got most driver an programs up and running, but the touch panel didn´t work anymore grrrrr. Posted the problem in many different netbook forums, but no answer yet. So no I am going back to xp.
