So, was perusing Craigslist and found someone who was selling one of these for $40. 1st gen (Arrandale) core i5-470um processor. 4 GB ram, 64 GB SSD. 12" 1280x800 touchscreen tablet. Windows 7 was stuck in a windows update loop making it unusable, and the battery was dead. Picked it up, and to my surprise Debian worked perfectly out of the box. Saw the wifi while installing (Atheros), touchscreen working while installing. On first boot, sound working perfectly. So went and ordered a battery for it ($40 ebay), so now finally have a tablet that I might keep for a while. Or in a couple weeks you might see it in the traders forum given how I am. Either way, $80 for a fully working 12" linux tablet...
