Default Any run *BSD on an Aspire One D257 Laptop?

Anyone try Open or FreeBSD on an Aspire One D257 laptop?

I've come across a few reviews...don't have the points here to post links here yet. But googling for "Aspire One OpenBSD" returned one review that looked like it worked.

The model that caught my eye is an Aspire One D257-1854:
  • Atom N570 processor (1.6Ghz, 1MB L2 cache)
  • 1GB DDR3 RAM
  • 3-cell lithium
  • 250GB HDD

Obvious, tons more power than one needs for a pleasant BSD experience. Just a question of drivers. If necessary I could live without wireless...mainly I want to boot, use text editors and compilers, play with unix.

Curious if someone else has tried it before I plunk down $250.
