I have. It's pretty good. Just a couple of issues. It didn't say on the 
site that it there was no optical drive. I don't really need one but 
though small it is a laptop, not netbook. I opted for one with no 
pre-installed OS but found that default Debian wouldn't install and I 
had to find the 'non-free drivers' image. I'm using Arch now and that 
installed without problems but I did think it a little odd that a 
Linux-oriented machine would require non-free. Probably the Nvidia graphics.

I did like the being able to pick and choose options, picked twin 
drives, SSD for root and swap, larger normal one for /home.
