Windows+Netbook=A Disappointing Experience
22 April 2011
Summary: I sent this Netbook back because I was hoping to use it as my only portable computer and found out that the size just was not adequate for that purpose. Furthermore, the Windows/Acer interface seemed designed to frustrate every attempt to get rid of Microsoft applications and download or otherwise install competing products, erase settings I had just created, and tell me, though I was the "administrator," that I did not have privileges to make changes.
Summary: I wanted a portable netbook that would allow me to surf the internet and watch online videos. This small netbook has good specs, good graphics, high resolution, reasonable price, and therefore I gave it a try. Initially I was impressed. The screen was bright and crispy, keyboard was well designed and easy to use, the touchpad was responsive, the lid was not that bad as a finger magnet as some people seemed to think.
Summary: I totally agree with the earlier review by 'ade'. Far too slow, open a second page while browsing and it takes forever, quite often freezes, and using yahoo messenger is nearly impossible. Battery life nowhere near the hours started, I probably get 2 hours at the most. Im sending this piece of crap back...
Summary: Es handelt sich hier um ein passables Gerät, aber für mich ist es ein K.O. Kriterium, dass der Speicher nur sehr schwer zu erweitern ist. Ich bin nicht den Weg über die Tastatur gegangen, sondern habe die Gehäuseklappe hinten aufgehebelt. Ein Netbook ohne eine einfach Möglichkeit der Erweiterung möchte ich nicht wirklich empfehlen und auch in Zukunft nicht mehr kaufen. Nur leider sieht man das dem Gerät erst an, wenn man es in Händen hält.
