Summary: The seller delivered the computer within two days after I ordered it instead of 7 days to 10 days. Of course I liked that. As for the product, it was an easy setup. It picked my WiFi network right away. I started using it within the 3 hours after the battery charged. I love it.
Excellent price/value and they keep on chugging along (despite extremely heavy use & abuse)

Summary: Excellent. Best value for money that I've come across. Mine go through some very hard traveling all over the world (inc. 8 months Egypt, Malaysia, Australia, China). First one went about 3-4 years and then just too much abuse took it's toll.
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: 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.
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: I love this handy notebook. I can bring it anywhere for work if needed. It works pretty ok and so far it hasn't failed me yet. The processor is fast in my standards since all I do with this is word processing and occasional surfing over the internet.
Summary: If you do buy this machine just be sure you do all the updates prior to using otherwise you will get frustrated. Once updates are complete including Wi does 8.1 you will have a powerhouse system in a netbook size package.
Summary: As the other review mentioned, I did install an SSD and ArchLinux. Works fabulously for me. I imagine it would work great with any non-taxing OS on it. I might not want to run it with a current windows install(especially after system gunk builds up), but it is a smooth and portable little machine if...
Pros: Nice and small, long battery life, runs great for its purpose, good keyboard feel, functional screen/camera/sound. Excellent lightweight notebook without alot of uneeded(expensive) frills. I can't say how well the 5400 rpm HDD works with it, it lives in my friends PS3 now. I do not think the SSD ...
Cons: touchpad buttons under the touchpad surface. can get warm, I don't find the fan to be too noisy though. keyboard requires a typing ajustment till you get used to it. can't easily upgrade anything. If you are unwilling to learn anything but windows you wont want this, but no windows is actually a ...
