I don't use it for anything that requires serious computing...
Apparently the solid state drive that it comes with is only good for about 100,000 write cycles, so it is not good for compiling.
I do use it for every day stuff, like taking notes, checking the Ethical Hacker Network forums
, and watching movies.
With a USB DVD drive, I can use my normal live CDs like BackTrack and Helix.
This is a really great wardriving laptop. It's funny to turn on Airodump-ng or Kismet and drive through neighborhoods to see how many people have insecure wireless APs. I sometimes do this on my way home from work just to see how many I pick up. It sits nicely on my dashboard without sliding.
Thanks for that BackTrack link, oleDB!
