Great Laptop For Price and Convenience

Pros: Ultra light weight and easy to set up. While I have heard complaints of it being "flimsy", I am not sure what those persons expect in a lightweight portable and quite inexpensive laptop. Also, for those complaining about Windows 8, it takes time to get used to, and this is my first time with it, but like any new thing, you will adjust. I am having no issues. Agree the battery life could be better, but again, powering a solid CPU and decent sized hard drive on such a s...
Cons: None yet, as I believe the quality is fine for the price. If you compare the quality to heavy duty laptop weighing twice as much, you will be disappointed.
Summary: Surprising power from this celeron processor. This unit is replacing an older netbook with an AMD C-50 which was a piece of junk processor (good onboard GPU, but the CPU was a total joke). However, at 17 watts the CPU is somewhat power hungry and thus battery life is at best 3 hours (closer to 2 with fully lit backscreen). The screen clarity degrades quickly when viewed off center, which is pretty disappointing in this day and age when they are usually better than ever.
Pros: Price, power, touchpad (once you get used to it)
Summary: bought this instead of a tablet, did not regret it!
Pros: ok first off, i have used the living daylights out of this thing mainly night time chill surfing, but started putting to tests.
Cons: ok, big gripe is the harddrive, that is it on the major side, it is slow as molasses and strange for it being 5200 rpm, the hdd in my dell inspiron performed faster then what was put in here (and that was a seagate 5400rpm hdd)
Summary: Nice computer, compact in size and pretty responsive. Although not as fast as I'd like I think this is a great investment if you need something smaller than a laptop and can still get the job done!
Summary: I bought this on sale last year close to the holidays and, after a few minor tweaks, am very pleased. Was on a very tight budget after losing my job at the time and bought it to replace a 2006 Macbook Pro(2.16ghz dualcore, 4gb, ATI x1600) that finally gave up (overheating issues). it's surpassed my expectations so much that I dropped my initial plan of using this for a while then buying a more powerful laptop when money allowed.
