Summary: I really like this little laptop/netboot. I have installed linux mint xfce which is not too demanding of the hardware. I use it for everything from navigating using a plug in satnav dongle from Maplin with the free foxtrotgps software to calculations with scilab and freemat. I use it for sheet music with abc files and also the excellent musecore software. I cannot comment of how well it works with Windows. It is hard to find netbooks now but this one is ok.
Summary: bought it to replace my Acer with XP. Keyboard is manageable but I understand the complaints about it. Windows 7 is also initially a challenge on this machine but is much faster after all the updates, patches, etc are done. Suggest giving it a week before really using it. Also, may want to turn off the cloud etc that you don't use. it will also speed it up. overall i'm very happy with it. now if I can just pry my wife's old machine out of her fingers so she'll use it....
Summary: I am an oldie fighting a battle when it comes to high tech. I travelled thousands of miles with my previous Asus Eee but regrettably it finally gave out on me. I debated for weeks whether I should replace it with an I pad and borrowed my granddaughter's to try it out. I found out I really prefer the netbook, mostly because of the keyboard, I found the I pad too fiddly for words.
Summary: I bought this item for a friend having already used one myself for several months. The only draw back was not being able to upgrade the memory to 2Gb as I did on my own machine. Delivery was spectacular. I ordered on Friday and the computer arrived on the following Tuesday.
