Summary: Great thing is that it comes with Linux operating system (Ubuntu 12.04) where you do not need to worry about viruses and enjoy a stability of the system. The laptop is light and handy. It might become a bit slow if a lot of disk operations happen, but accounting its price I'd not complain. If you are new to Ubuntu, then I'd not recommend to upgrade it newer version of Ubuntu yet.
Summary: I have the Ubuntu version of this. I find it very intuitive, and much less trouble than Windows ever was. It's cute, and inexpensive, and does what I need it to do- burn CDs (with an external drive), let me type up fiction stories and journal, and make up for the things my Kindle Fire cannot do. The added bonus is the size. It happens to be adorable, and I like adorable things.
Great little laptop - open your mind and give Linux a try!

Summary: For $229 this little laptop is great. As long as you know what you are buying and do not expect MacBook Air build quality and you at least have an idea of what Linux is and aren't hopelessly computer illiterate, you will probably like it as much as I do. It's the last of a dying breed, a teeny, tiny 10" netbook, which is great for those of us who love this form factor. It has a 1366x768 screen, which is as high res as the $5-600 "budget" laptops with 14-15" screens.
Summary: So I bought this little notebook for a few reasons, I needed something that would allow me to do school work without keeping me tied to my desktop. Due to a disability I can't spend long amounts of time sitting in a chair at the computer desk. This seemed perfect for my needs, the fact that it came with Ubuntu was a plus as I prefer working in a Linux environment. Upon receiving the laptop I plugged it in and powered it on.
Summary: I needed a cheap laptop for school with good battery life, that I could take notes and program on and this was perfect. I have been using Ubuntu for years, and it works great on this laptop. I did find the keyboard to be a little small, but that was to be expected. This is by far the smallest computer I have ever owned, and am loving it for the protability even compared to the 17" screen I came from.
