I've got the 701 with the 7" screen. The 900 is more appealing but I got 
the 701 in November. Before they sold out...:-)

I've just put 2.9 on it and although  rev says 1024x768 the 800x600 
seems okay. I'm going to put it on the desktop tonight. And I would 
recommend the new Mandriva spring for anyone wanting to easilly try linux.

Got to dash for the train.
