"You need 1.3 GB free on one of your memory cards (this includes the
built-in 2GB on the N810), although after installing, you will only need
1 GB. You need to keep your expectations reasonable. Big desktop
applications like OpenOffice and Firefox run slowly on the tablet. They
are designed for big, power-hungry CPUs. The N8x0's processor is
comparable to a Pentium II processor. Just imagine running these apps on
your computer from the mid-90s (remember Windows 95?), and you'll get
the idea. But sometimes, you really need something on the tablet that
only these apps can provide, like MS Word compatibility or Java applets."
