Summary: Bought this for the girlfriend for school -- it works great and is light enough to put in a backpack without adding much weight at all. I haven't tried playing any games on it, but with 2GB of RAM it's guaranteed to struggle with most games.
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.
Pros: I have had this computer for 14 months now. I use it daily for internet, some light office work occasionally, and a lot of reading of e-books. At first I was worried about the small screen size, but I quickly adjusted, and now I like it because of the small size. The only problem I have had with ...
Cons: The charging port is susceptible to becoming loose. See above comments.

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.
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!
Pros: Computer works great now. The home router Dlink N300 is incompatible with this computer using Windows 8.1. It came originally with Windows 8 and the wireless used to work. I can hook up to my hotspot and it's great!!
Cons: Stll noisy fan Wasted 6 hours trying to get the wireless to work.
Summary: It's a competent netbook, and works great as an ultra-portable Linux system. Installing Xubuntu on it was easy. My big complaint with it is that the touchpad is pretty terrible, but it's fine when used with an external mouse.
