 Intel released some time ago the Classmate Netbook.  Now updated with the Atom Processor and up to 2GB Ram and with the possibly of windows 7 (as installed on this one), it is a spiffy little beasty,  well designed for schools is well worth a serious look for Netbook geeks (like me) as well. It detects wi-fi very fast (some such devices are not so quick on detection. More impressively it took an install of Windows 7 Ultimate with no problems at all (installed by memory stick) , as there is no internal DVD drive an external one can be added cheaply. 

Orginally designed for schools this spunky little number when windows 7 is added, is an even better device.

    Did you do a clean install of Windows 7?

    and did all the touchscreen elements work?

    Cant find any classmate Intel drivers for Windows 7

    Great news. Like you I have installedd Windows 7 on the classmate and it works just fine. It would be great to have the correct drivers for the touchscreen to do the flicks.
