from all reviews it seems like a waste of money and time

I do not hate my kids that much.

I resisted every impulse to buy this, because it is so cheap. But it is refurbished because it has a design flaw in the battery pack, which causes the power supply to burn out. I am sure newegg's solution to the fix is add a new power supply. You can apparently charge the battery when the machine is off, or pull out the battery when using the laptop, but you cannot charge the laptop while using it.

I actually had this little sub-netbook for a few years now. Yes, the built-in Windows CE stinks.. But you can run Linux on it. I have it compiling Gentoo right now and it runs rather well. I'm sure there are other pre-built distros out there that will run decent on it.
