After a rough start receiving a machine that had a warped lid causing the bezel to touch the keys on the left hand side, the replacement is all go. I got the WL610PA which features the following specs:

PROCESSOR : Intel Atom Processor N450,
1.66 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache, 667 MHz FSB

STORAGE : 80GB Solid State Drive
CHIPSET : Intel NM10 Express Chipset
DISPLAY : 10.1-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD
RESOLUTION : 1366 x 768
CAMERA : 2.0MP WebCam
OS : Windows 7 Professional
COMM : Marvell Ethernet (10/100/1000 NIC), Broadcom 4322G 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0, HP UN2420 HSPA 3G
GRAPHICS : Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD
AUDIO : High Definition Audio, stereo speakers
PORTS : 3 x USB 2.0 ports (1 powered), VGA, power connector,
RJ-45, stereo microphone in jack, stereo headphone/line
out jack
SLOTS : Secure Digital slot
INPUT DEVICE : 95% full-size keyboard, touchpad with scroll zone
BATTERY : 6 Cell Battery
DIMENSION (H x W x D) : 23.2 (at front) x 262 x 180 mm

So far so good, I love the size of the machine and the resolution of the screen. Having an SSD is nice too - no "hot spots" on the machine and no annoying hard drive clicks etc.

My primary considerations were overall size, screen resolution, integrated 3G and aesthetics (brushed aluminium, dark colour, etc) - this fits them perfectly! The availability of SSD was a nice bonus and the inclusion of a neoprene case was a pleasant surprise.

Lets see if I tire of the small size and low spec processor . . .
