A relatively thin and light bargain

EmbeddedFlyer, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: First of all I don't agree with the previous review of the X501A--see my comments. Also, the X501A version with a lesser Celeron CPU and 2GB of RAM has many favorable reviews but I think this model with the i3 and 4GB is the sweet spot for this laptop (depending on the price). Windows 8 (or 7) struggles with only 2GB of RAM and the i3 is a big jump up over the Celeron. THE GOOD: The price.

Very satisfied with the laptop

Geanina, Amazon

  • Summary: I need a laptop for my personal use as I am a student, mainly for web browsing, stocking photos and stuff. One thing I didn't consider when buying was that it doesn't have a cd-writer and one other thing is that the sd card-reader doesn't seem to work but it probably needs a software or smt. Per all it's a cute laptop, very minimal, but I'm very glad I bought it.

Good, light compromise

N. West, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: I began looking for a compromise, and inexpensive, laptop when I realized my Toshiba netbook was just TOO slow and the screen to tiny for my 50+ year old eyes. Barely tolerable when casually browsing or checking email, it struggled through even Plants vs. Zombies. While I have a Gateway gaming laptop, it is 5 years old and weighs like 13 pounds. I wanted something light but still able to do casual gaming.

Excellent value if you understand what you're buying

Erisian, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted an light, inexpensive computer for air travel vacations, with a larger screen than most ultrabooks. This machine worked OK out of the box, no problems. Pros: Very quiet fan, light weight for its screen size (no DVD drive helps), inexpensive, looks good. Trackpad surface is excellent (many trackpads are too slick or too rough for comfort). Cons: Only 2 USB ports (1 is 3.0), mediocre keyboard. I'm very pleased with this machine so far.
