Hi Terry. The Advent 4211 comes with XP HOme with 1GB of RAM and it has a 10 
inch display. This machine has 80GB hard drive space and will run Jaws and 
System Access. I can't speak for other screen readers but I'm quite sure it 
wouldn't be a problem to run other screen readers.

  Hi all

  Has anyone on the list bought one of the Advent or Acer net books with the 
8gig flash drive.  I was wanting to know if that sort of drive is alright to 
use with jaws.  Basically, is there any difference with flash and rotating hard 
drives in terms of speed, running software etc.

  I have a lap top,so can't really justify the extra cost of the versions that 
come with an 80gig hard drive, but would like one of these for the increased 
portability factor.

  Thanks for any in put.

  Terry
