Experiencing Android 4.4.2 R1 Kitkat (x86) on an Intel Netbook Natively (part 2 on x86 Android)

In this video I demonstrate the Android 4.4 Kitkat x86 release on my Akoya E1222 netbook (hardware specs below) as Windows 7 Starter Edition wasn't really working smoothly on this machine. I did use Ubuntu on it very successfully but with the new X86 Android release I just had to try it. Check out the video to see how I did.
It supports all my hardware out of the box! And it supports the Google Playstore out of the box!
