Hi Saqib,


The Advent will easily run Window-Eyes too.  There are other better ones
though, like the MSI Wind, which you can now get with a 160GB hard disk.


All the best

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.
