already ordered - reviews were positive on the Acer Aspire One keyboard
and I got one of the 160GB models coming. Apparently the new ones with
the 160 GB HD also have a '6 cell' battery whereas the older 120 GB had
a '3 cell' battery and I'm gathering this means better battery life. I
suspect tho' that they've found a way to make them even cheaper based
upon Anne's issues about wireless LED's. 

Thanks to all - I'm going to be keeping up with the Jones's now
