Not bad

N/A, Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Overall a decent laptop. I would've loved a bit more CPU power and SSD drives, but SSD may be possible soon. Dual boot for me was a must, so fact that Ubuntu works with touchscreen is great. A bit sad that FreeBSD would not boot, but maybe its my grub settings. If you re-install everything into MBR instead of GPT you can get whatever OS you want, FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD included, but then you won't have Win8.1 (although Win7 is possible). So something to look forward to!
  • Pros: Installs Ubuntu 13.10 in dual boot without any issues. Under Ubuntu the touchscreen works, most things- sound, wifi, network, etc. works. Windows 8.1 works 'fine' for most things. Video playback in 1080p is smooth. Dual monitor setup is possible, with second screen output in 1080p via VGA.
  • Cons: Trackpad finger motions (2 finger scroll) under Ubuntu does not work. Seems some RAM is shared, as only

It's preetty good

PBlais, Newegg

  • Summary: When you get done with all this updating it's actually a pretty decent compact device and you'll be fully bonded and have a personal relationship. Don't wimp out on all the updates or it's not that great. After you are done it is pretty good but it's not an AMD FX 8 core processor! The 4 GB ram is about all you can really use. You are buying this because you want a decent price!
  • Pros: Small, light, compact! Free sleeve! Runs Win 8.1 (see below)! I actually wanted it to use as a tether to my NIkon Camera. It's going to be GREAT! It also runs Office 365 (not included) pretty well too.
  • Cons: Out of the box it's running a one year old load of Win 8.0. Show no fear! Disable all the Defender and Firewall settings and start a VERY long Windows Update cycle! Use hardwired internet if you can. At the end of about 100 (really!) You can then go to the app store and now get the FREE Windows 8.1 upgrade then the small list of those updates. Plan on a long time and don't forget to disable the real time Defender settings or it will be FAR longer (enable when done).

Wegen langsamer Festplatte nur für das Nötigste zu gebrauchen

  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Netbook geholt um in der Uni arbeiten zu können und für verschiedene Programme und Spiele die Patches/Updates zu downloaden. Da ich hier auf technische Spezifikationen nicht zu sehr eingehen will, bleibe ich bei meinem Eindruck, bzw Probleme/Schwachpunkte, die ich persönlich sehe.
