I was going to say the same thing, i have my entire hdd on my netbook filled with 720p bluray tv shows and the play with zero problems.Hell I even hook my netbook up to my tv if i want to watch somrthing quick on the fly.
What I dont get is the x86-x64 hype ,every single netbook ive even worked on or owned has had one ram slot and they dont make 4gb ddr2 SODIMM moduals that I am aware of so its wasted money in my opinion.
