My final thoughts; While I was a bit skeptical at first on how I would take to the “clamshell” factor of such a small unit and the touch pad, but I found it a pleasant experience to use. The FlipStart is a very solid machine and performs quite well with Windows-XP Professional and the included MS Office applications. I would however have liked to have time to do a comparison with the OQO Model-02 that I own running Windows Vista but time was limited. Perhaps I can talk the powers that be at Dynamism into a couple more weeks to do some side-by-side comparisons of these two units. Anyway, we would like to thank the folks at Dynamism.com for providing us this evaluation unit.
