    Sounds like a win, win situation. :D Now I need to go find my Word cd. Hmmm...it's here somewhere. I can picture exactly where it was in my old home...that's the one thing I hate about moving...never can find anything ever again. :D

    except Im guessing you'll need to work out how to share the cd since I dont think they have cdroms in them?

    Well there will be a few ways.. first off, it'll have open office on it anyway so you dont necessarily need word on there

    secondly you could get a USB cdrom for it and install that way

    thirdly you could share the cdrom from your desktop/laptop to it over ethernet or wifi

    One way or another, you'll get it on there :)

    (heck I could be wrong about it not having a cdrom, I havent got one of the units myself but they seem too small to have one)

    I think you're right Keith...here's my blonde moment. So, how do I accomplish your 'secondly' option? Does that mean I could just save word to my zip thingy? Or how do accomplish the 'thirdly' option? Sorry, this has moved beyond my abilities.

    Need to wait until it's in your hands I think before going into it :) it'll be easier and they may have some suggestions about recommended ways to install in the handbook

    Remember though these things arent intended to be full laptops. The idea is you use whats already installed! but I've read everywhere that you CAN install new stuff on them, so you ought to be able to

    I got it, I got it!!!! :D

    And yes it doesn't have a cdrom, but i think i could save word to my external hard drive and then load it on to it. It's charging. It's so little and cute. :) I will share some pictures in a few. I am reading the instructions.

    It has 3 USB ports, a monitor port, microphone and headphones jacks, a SD slot (with an sd card already in place, and a phone jack. It also comes with a built in web camera. It seems to be the size of a hard back book. :)

    Stay tuned pictures to come.

    also comes with the ac adapter, carrying sleeve, and cloth for the screen. The keyboard is small. I just think it will take a little time to get use to it, you know.

    Here are some pictures. I hope with the highlighter and piece of candy you guys can get a perspective on it.

    Sorry for the glare, my window was right behind me.

    That looks brilliant :) Makes you wonder how they can charge so much more for larger ones doesnt it!

    :lol: yes it does keith. I think it was a wise purchase. I'm going to attempt practicing on the keyboard this weekend. It's charging right now. They say I'm supposed to charge it for 8 hours before using it.

    okay, I took my zip thingy, opened word document on it, which then it opened it to a works program, and then I just saved it as a word doc (which I could do) and then I was able to open it back up on my computer that has word. So I don't think I'm going to have to install Word on it.
