End of the Mini-Note Saga

After struggling with the HP mini-note and failing to get wireless networking working for more than a couple of minutes I eventually sent it back to eBuyer. They just emailed me to say that it really is faulty - not just my incompetence. They're also out of stock and can't give me any sort of delivery date for a replacement.

In view of this, and my realisation that it probably isn't an ideal machine for my purposes anyway, I've decided to go for a refund instead. While I do want something small, a netbook probably isn't my ideal solution; not sure what is, to be honest, probably something between a netbook and a PDA with a keyboard, but faster and a better screen and more memory than the HP 720. I really wish that someone would build something like that into a form factor say the size of a DVD case.

Many thanks to everyone who helped with this, especially to all those who helped me come to the realisation that it really was faulty - it's a shame it didn't work out, I shall try to think of it as a learning experience.
