Install Android On Netbook

I decided to install android on my netbook (HP mini 210-1010NR) to see how it would work. I found the android-x86.org project that had created x86 installs (a few machine specific and one generic). I used the generic iso and created a bootable sd card using unetbootin. The install screens were straight forward and the installation was done in a few minutes. My internal wifi and camera did not work. However I could connect to the internet through an ethernet cable. It runs smoothly except dialog boxes move slowly. No wifi means I wouldn't be using this and will revert back to a windows or ubuntu netbook remix install or I could leave it as an option under dual boot. I repeated the process in virtualbox so I could capture a few screenshots as seen below. The project is a nice idea and I hope it continues.
