A list of knowns quirks and issues with existing hardware/software on the A110.
There is no reset button. However, pressing the power button for about 6 seconds can achieve a power-off even during "hang".
RAM is not expandable
The 512 MB RAM are soldered onto the board, and there's no expansion slot, so upgrades are not possible, it seems.
No hardware killswitch for wireless
It's unfortunate that there's no hardware killswitch for enabling/disabling the wireless card. Pressing Fn+F2 should enable/disable wireless, but it likely depends on the BIOS or OS to do it and is not a hardware solution.
Booting from SD cards is not possible
This is a list of issues which users buying new A110s might want to know.
They're not "issues" per se, but as a user you might still want to know about them in order to judge whether or not you need certain components or features.
Small solid state disk
The 2 GB SSD of the A110 is relatively small, but sufficient for many purposes. The A120 has a 4 GB SSD.
There is no built-in bluetooth support (though you can use a USB bluetooth dongle, of course).
There is no built-in webcam on the A110 (though you can use a USB-attached webcam, of course). The A120, however, does have an integrated webcam.
Whether or not an integrated webcam is useful is debatable. Quanta has made a popular design decision by not including a webcam in the A110, as it likely saves some power for users who don't need one.
100 Mbit/s ethernet
The network card supports 10/100 Mbit/s, i.e. not Gigabit ethernet. Whether or not you need Gigabit ethernet depends on your use cases.
While it features a VGA output, there's no DVI output.
The device features a resolution of 800x480, natively. however, on the external VGA socket it displays at least 1600x1200 natively, which is more than some onboard chipsets do.
Schuko plug (Germany)
The external power adapter has a bulky "Schuko"-type power plug (3 contacts) instead of a slim Euro-plug (2 contacts). Some portable car-battery power converters may not have this plug type, so you need yet another adaptor. There is no metal on the outside of the external adaptor anyway, and you can't insert a standard Euro-type extension cord into the external adaptor.
