There's no nice way to say this, Fujitsu-Siemens: your Amilo Mini's keyboard flexes like a trampoline. Sure, there's an Atom processor inside here, a great 9-inch screen and some other fine tech specs, but in general this netbook just feels like a shoddy piece of work, and we expect more from a top-tier manufacturer (you do desire to be a top-tier manufacturer, right?) Take those trackpad-flanking mouse buttons, for example: how are we supposed to work 'em? Have you ever attempted to use this laptop? Let's hope Dell's Inspiron 910 can lift this form factor up from the mire and give it a shot at actually outlasting this faddish stage -- netbooks like this just aren't going to cut it.
