With minimal TLC, this product is worth the usual price

Summary: It's an Acer, so it's fairly reliable. It's a good little machine for a student going to a physical school for note-taking or keeping in touch with family. I'd give it 4 stars but the RAM included needs to be upgraded to 2GB (no more than $75) and the bloatware (Norton!) eliminated completely (replace it with a quality freeware AV, they're everywhere online).
Average Netbook.... With a few tweaks becomes brilliant.

Summary: I bought this netbook with the intended purpose of surfing and programming on the move. I hate slow systems and for this reason would normally avoid cheap netbooks. A long with my purchase I bought a 2gb of ram (was unsure about any further expansion outside the 2gb due to conflicting information online) and a 60GB SSD. As soon as the system arrived I took the laptop apart and added both the ram and SSD. I then set up windows premium on the modified system.

Summary: I bought this netbook around 9 months ago now so I think I can give it a fair review after intense usage. I work online so I frequently use this machine 6hrs+ per day. TL;DR - look elsewhere: spend more now, save in the long run PROS - Lightweight - great for traveling - Battery life is very good even now.
Summary: Its not bad as a portable laptop for writing and surfing with when out and about. I use mine for word-processing only. It is so awfully slow but today I swapped the built-in 1GB RAM with 2GB and it is much faster. I would recommend this product for good battery life (I get around 6 hours or more) plus it is very lightweight. I use a USB mobile wi-fi dongle when outside the house. At home, I use a full size laptop.
Summary: I believe this is very good value, it suits my purposes. I prefer a 'proper keyboard' and will have one. It has some preinstalled games, protection, Windows 7 Starter and other stuff, unfortunately the machine has crashed and is out of use at present time (mid March). This revue could be subject to change.
Underpowered but basically OK machine but crap after sales service

Summary: Bought the machine in the full knowledge (40+ years in IT) that it was underpowered so also bought an upgrade of RAM to 2BG (from 1GB supplied). Installing RAM meant removing the keyboard and in so doing the connection to the motherboard (very fragile so beware) broke off. Replaced RAM easily (why don't they just supply it with 2GB of RAM to start with) and machine booted up rapidly but with no keyboard was not useable so sent it back to Acer in Plymouth in the UK for...
