Summary: Ordered this little laptop for my sister. I set it up for her, which included upgrading from windows 8.0 to 8.1, downloading and installing all of the updates (took many hours), and installing classic shell so she had a windows 7 like start button. I also have one of these myself, so the process was easy for me. The only negative is that this thing can be quite slow because the processor is a dated Intel Celeron.
Excerpt: This thing is HORRIBLE! We don't even use it and have given up.........it sits in the closet. We called and tried explaining to the techs that it will not run ANYTHING and takes forever to open anything then it'll freeze or shut down. They finally said send it in after trying everything we could and they didn't even give us a new one!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: This netbook is limited in what a computer can do .It is sluggish and gets slower with use until you defragment it , which is really a sluggish procedure. I like it for it's small size .I take it everywhere and find the wi fi works great .I do email and read the news where ever I happen to be.For me it works fine. It also is a money maker if you use the internet a lot for your business..
Summary: muy buena computadora, la parte exterior es hermosa, muy buenos acabados, traia 2 gb de ram, perfectos, un poco lenta pero es por el procesador, todo lo demas corre bien, si quiere una maquina para trabajar office, internet, esta es la indicada
There are plenty of glitches for those who love constant troubleshooting

Summary: This computer is so slow it makes the old one riddled with viruses look speedy by comparison. There are plenty of glitches for those who love constant troubleshooting. I wanted to return it but it seems I have to go back to the manufacturer etc etc and I feel it will be lengthy and painful so I guess I am just stuck with it.
Summary: I purchased this from Amazon Warehouse for $160 because I wanted a disposable laptop for travel. It fit in a tiny backpack and I carried it around Asia for two months. It plugged directly into 240v sockets too. It's also pretty light, like a 100 page hardback, and it took a bit of abuse. It worked great in WiFi cafes, played movies to my LCD TV in hotels, and with a wireless mouse, was a joy to use. I hate touch pads.
Summary: Exactly 12 months after purchase on July 30 several keys on the keyboard has stopped working. I got it for classroom use and travel , now I cannot even respond to email, waste of money DISAPPOINTED!
Summary: Very nice hardware excellent performance with the LINUX Mint OS. Good screen resolution perfect size for working on the go. Light weight and decent battery life make it ideal for carrying on travel and easy to setup wifi wireless internet access. Really no down side to this small laptop.
Summary: This laptop is really bad, to put it nicely. It is portable which is nice, however it is REALLY SLOW. I have had it for less than a year and I have only used it a handfull of times because I normally use my home computer. I took it out to use it today and the keyboard does not work. I am dissapointed in myself for not returing this piece of junk when I got it!
Summary: All I needed was a laptop to carry around to class and take notes with. This does just that! It lagged a lot in the beginning and I really hated it, but after updating it to Windows 8.1 it seems to work a bit better, it's still a little slow upon start up but for only $200 I wasn't really expecting much. The batter lasts a really long time which is great! I can charge it up over night and it'll last pretty much all day long during school.
