A little review from me. Well, seems you must buy USB to VGA peripheral to connect this netbook to a projector. If you weren’t familiar with Windows CE OS, maybe it’s difficult to add some desktop application, or becoming an open source revolusiner by using Android OS (yai). The small storage and memory device must be considered since this netbook general purpose for office and browse internet. You can upgrade it by buying another bigger peripheral.
