That's a really minor problem. USB 802.11 adapters that are supported  
by Linux are cheap, and the problem will almost certainly be solved  

The accelerated video problem will only be solved with the  
cooperation of Sony/nVidia, and the low amount of RAM will probably  
never be solved short of surface-mount soldering gear and maybe not  
even then.

But it's *still* a good deal IMHO :-)
