Conclusion:

The ZaReason Verix is certainly a nice performer with its Intel Core i7 CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M, and Intel SSD. Unfortunately, with this hardware the price is also at a premium. The ZaReason Verix 1656 starts out at $1,499 USD and becomes more expensive from the base configuration. The price for how our review notebook was configured places it at $2,197 USD. ZaReason products (along with System76 and other Linux specialty retailers) are usually more expensive than the tier-one manufacturers. However, if you do not mind the greater cost for a Linux-compatible high-performance netbook and are looking to support a vendor who actively supports Linux, then the ZaReason Verix is worth considering.
