You'll have a ton of fun with it...
most definitely install diablo turbo ...at the least.
I do heartily endorse cloning your fresh pristine and undisturbed os to the internal sd card...AND THEN ramp it up to diablo turbo.
An 8gb internal card would be adequate for diablo turbo ...a ton of space for ALL the applications downloaded (instead of only a handful with stock diablo) AND room for another os or 2 and space left over for whatever. 32gb for the internal will turn it into a beast.
I suggest using the external for books/music/vids/game files etc...once you clone to internal don't go pulling it out...use the external card slot for that...
Not to mention that cloning to card means less wear and tear on the device as well the cloned os repairs itself when there is any kind of internal oopsie...not too shabby really....soooo many pluses...
Anyway ...hmmm...what was I saying...oh yes...
32gb card internally...and a 32gb card externally ...All those beauuutiful batteries....grab yourself a solio classic (3 panel) off ebay...and in case there is no sun...get a (compatible) wind-up charger to output to a removed battery (no point in over-enthusiastically cooking your n800 ) and you are not only good for the apocalypse...you'll be "King Lear-ing it" ....raging at the fates and elements screamin' "Bring it on!" hehe.
You'll be just waiting for the opportunity to be marooned on a desert island.
For myself...my n770 relic is charming...and I personally have a few back up n800's and n810's ...I do like my n900 alot ...it is my phone and primary comm device...and can't wait for my neo900 to replace it....But I have a serious soft spot for my old n800 and n810 beasties...and use them pretty much all day long....I'm sure I will still be puttering with them for my own entertainment when everyone else has moved on to tricorders
Some would perhaps call me a fanboy...meh...the reality is I've been using the device line so long now ...I'm more die-hard survivalist than fanboy.
I enjoy terabytes of music etc...but reality is when you are stuck...or the power goes out...when you live in the boonies?....what then?...me....I have my gramophone yup ....don't need no stinking hydro...crank that thing up ...and I have music blasting ...REAL old skool ....or I play one of my harps....I don't trust in much except what I can do or make with my hands...but while there is hydro electricity ...I trust in my maemo devices....little else.
