Summary: Had this mini netbook for 11 months. First 9 it worked ok, though speeds can drop to as low as, well, bps (which is what is showing now) and average something silly like 12 kbs, and i am in a high reception area. I mean, Google wont even load quickly. It was an absolute NIGHTMARE contacting DELL about the problem. The guy who 'helped' me did nothing but shout over me, bully me, and insisted that the problem was the 'network' and nothing to do with them.
Summary: It's OK, but not great, and I wish I was more aware of the limitations before I bought it. The touchpad is very poor, Windows 7 Starter seems to offer no significant advantages over XP, and has inbuilt irritations such as not being able to change the desktop background, and usually crashing when control panel is opened. To upgrade to a regular Windows 7 operating system, you have to fork out another £50+.
