- Choice of SUSE Linux or Windows XP
- Choice of a standard 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display or a higher resolution 1366 x 768 pixel screen for an extra $25
- 2GB of RAM available for $25 extra (not applicable for Windows XP Home version)
- Choice of 160GB, 250GB, or 320GB hard drive or 128GB SSD, with the SSD option costing an extra $420
- Choice of an Intel 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi module as a $20 upgrade from the standard Broadcom module
- Optional 3G modem for $125
- 4 cell, 29Whr battery included standard, or upgrade to a 6 cell, 55WHr battery for $25
